comment How to execute a command whenever a file changes?
@StevenLu: no, the sleep is not a busy wait. The problem is that if the sleep is in the body, Control-C will kill the sleep and the loop will start over. Power usage of starting the loop over is insignificant. Try it yourself in a terminal. You need to hold Control-C for it to work, if you have sleep in the body.

comment How do I get AVX support in QEMU?
Yes, thank you very much. I realize that QEMU requires host support since I now know about the check flag and it triggers warnings, even about SSE 4.1. I'm using Bochs now but I might try Intel SDE later since Bochs has high CPU utilization even though I run it at 50 Mhz and with the idle hack. I don't have hardware virtualization support, so I can't use KVM. Bochs has support for more CPU features than real CPU's though. My current Bochs setup has SSE 4.2, 4.3, FMA3 and 4! Thanks again.

comment Installing Cygwin C and C++ compilers for NetBeans IDE 7.2
The most reason versions work fine. As I said, your list of packages is OK. The list is: g++, gcc, gdb, make. Also, you can wait for the installation to finish. Let your computer do it overnight.

The packages you list should be enough. Don't interrupt the installation procedure.

comment How do I prevent Bochs translation of keycodes?
Thanks everyone, I'm thankful for your ideas and suggestions. As noted in my answer, I had a small revelation and worked around the issue.

comment How do I prevent Bochs translation of keycodes?
@Dennis: But there's not much sense in changing the keymap at all since Bochs apparently does some kind of translation. For example, the Danish layout's equal sign on Shift-0 doesn't work, even after changing the guest kbd layout to dk and keeping us on the host. I need to find out how to disable the translation.

@Dennis: then I'm stuck with the US layout since Bochs dies if I change the keymap while it's running.

comment How do I prevent Bochs translation of keycodes?
@Dennis: Strangely enough, with dk as the host layout, that gives me a minus (which is what it would be on a dk layout), even if I didn't change the layout in the VM! Which means Bochs is doing some kind of conversion I guess? I'm glad you asked that question, maybe there's a way to turn this off in Bochs. Then I'd be able to do anything a US layout could do.
