I have a few ideas but notting proven ( about the loader bit ).
I was hoping that it would be just a simple ASM conversion ( from x86 AM to ppc32 ASM ) like some parts in the qemu, but I was wrong.
My search for the perfect distro + a working qemu in user mode continues. Does anyone found a working solution ?
Thank you for all of your answers
