Hello, I want to boot linux by QEMU with coreboot ,and I have some problems in making Linux image. I followed the steps on QEMU Build Tutorial form coreboot.org. (http://www.coreboot.org/QEMU_Build_Tutorial) As the Creating a hard disk image section points out: 1.qemu-img create -f raw disk.img 200M 2.mkfs.ext2 -F disk.img 3.mkdir /mnt/rootfs 4. mount -o loop disk.img /mnt/rootfs 5.mkdir /mnt/root/boot 6.cp vmlinux /mnt/rootfs/boot/vmlinuz 7.cp *initrd.img* /mnt/rootfs/boot/initrd 8.*cp -R /* /mnt/rootfs *
I've done all the steps above, but the image doesn't work on QEMU.
What does the 8th step mean? Does it act as *filesystem*? If so, could I only copy the directories and the root filesystem to make it work?
I want to know how to build the image. P.S. my Linux distribution is ubuntu 14.04
