How to run FatdogArm under Qemu

Haha, only yesterday I said I had written the final article for FatdogArm series. Well, never say never . A bloke in the forum (well, not just any bloke, he's actually a good friend of mine too - cheers Mick!) asked me how to run FatdogArm in Qemu, and why not, since I wrote the original HOWTO to get Puppy Arm run under Qemu too.

So I wrote the article, and then spent quite a bit of time trying to figure out a good combination of kernel and qemu-supported platform to provide an environment that can run with:
- 512MB or 1GB RAM
- ARMv7

The writing is not so bad; finding a working combination on the other hand actually took a bit of effort - since many of the documentations are "in the source form" (as in, you'd better to read the source code to know what's going on, mate!). In the end I settled with the latest 3.4 stable kernel (similar to the one I use for Mele) and Vexpress and Realview platform for the emulation.

Here is the article, enjoy: How to run FatdogArm under Qemu.
