I'm Danish and I study computer science. I primarily develop for POSIX systems. I think Rust is appealing.

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.

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.

@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.

@Dennis: I don't really think copy-pasting works with Bochs. The VMs input should be keycodes, not text. How would the X server doing the pasting know what keycodes to convert the text to? There's nowhere to paste anyway.

@RichHomolka: good idea, Ill try that if theres no other way to do this. this would mean id have to patch every single tcl image i used...

if you mean dk by other layout, that doesnt work because the linux kernel running inside thinks im using a us layout. if you mean us by other layout, that doesnt work because then im stuck with us layout outside the vm too because bochs crashes if i change it while running
