Description: fast processor emulator
QEMU is a fast processor emulator: currently the package supports
ARM, CRIS, i386, M68k (ColdFire), MicroBlaze, MIPS, PowerPC, SH4,
SPARC and x86-64 emulation. By using dynamic translation it achieves
reasonable speed while being easy to port on new host CPUs. QEMU has
two operating modes:
.
* User mode emulation: QEMU can launch Linux processes compiled for
one CPU on another CPU.
* Full system emulation: QEMU emulates a full system, including a
processor and various peripherals. It enables easier testing and
debugging of system code. It can also be used to provide virtual
hosting of several virtual machines on a single server.

Description: fast processor emulator, dummy package
QEMU is a fast processor emulator. Once upon a time there was only one
package named `qemu', with all functionality included. These days, qemu
become large and has been split into numerous packages. Different packages
provides entirely different services, and it is very unlikely one will
need all of them together. So current `qemu' package makes no sense anymore,
and is becoming a dummy package.
.
As QEMU requires no host kernel patches to run, it is very safe and
easy to use.
If you want full system emulation of some architecture, install one or more
of qemu-system-ARCH packages. If you want user-mode emulation, install
qemu-user pr qemu-user-static package. If you need utilities, use qemu-utils
package.
.
This package is a metapackage depending on all qemu-related packages.
This package can safely be removed.
