Hello, first of all sorry for my somewhat poor English. :(

QEmu Helper is a program written in Python3 that provides a config interface to make it easier to configure and start QEmu with Amiga OS 4.1.

The advantage of Python3 is that QEmu Helper runs on Windows as well as on Linux, MacOS and BSD.

For Linux, Python3 must still be installed.

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt install python3-full

Unfortunately I do not know for MacOS and BSD.

Nice,

Im please to see more efforts to improve QEMU AmigaOS4 support, this interested me too,

BBoot

It be great if we had a more one stop all included solution like a WinUAE kinda setup for just OS4 emulation / virtualization.

@amigang

WinUAE only emulates classic Amigas with PowerPC cards. Unfortunately only A1200 & A4000 can be emulated with PowerPC cards and unfortunately this is not stable. With QEmu AmigaOS 4.1 runs faster and more stable and can use up to 2GB memory.

The disadvantage of QEmu is that it is only command line based and has no GUI, except for QEmu Helper.


For me, to get AmigaOS 4.1 running, QEmu is the 1st choice

I got this error message on Mac when I tried to execute QEmu Helper:

RuntimeError: Bad magic number in .pyc file

My Mac has Python version 3.9.6.

@jap

These are runtime bytecode files, not python scripts.
Try "python3 file.pyc"

It works for me on this old macbook.

(though with python3.12 from homebrew... oh and you need python-tk corresponding to your python version, python-tk@3.9 in your case)

I just updated to Python version 3.12.3 and now Qemu Helper runs fine on my Mac!

@OneOfNine

Thanks for your efforts. So were you the first in the Borg hive?

Just need to turn this into a package. With a name. And nice icon.

So I'm running Linux Mint Una. Package python3-full doesn't exist. Or is too new for the Una repo anyway. I downloaded python3-all but had most of it already. I have Python 3.8.5. I also get the magic error. Does it need the latest Python?
