    SPARC on Linux x86 via qemu-system-sparc

    900415
      Supposedly RHEL 5.5 (courtesy of EPEL) has a hypervisor that emulates a SPARC CPU. When I tried it with Solaris 11, I got the following error message:

      *********************
      Unable to complete install: 'internal error Process exited while reading console log output: Supported machines are:

      With this in mind, has anyone here had any success installing S11 SPARC with a Qemu hypervisor on an x86 system?
