Wont it be better to package it as a
kernel-module-kqemu-<kernel_version>-foo.rpm just like most other kernel
modules are .... otherwise the entire package becomes kinda redundant
each time a new kernel is released.
With a seperate kernel module package, it would also be possible to just
have a stock qemu.rpm that works all the time, and with kernel-module
pkgs' installed with each kernel, you can get the acceleration when
Also, I presume you have an agreement with the author w.r.t licensing
issues... from the website :
"The QEMU Accelerator is free to use, but it is a closed source
proprietary product. You are not allowed to distribute it yourself to
other people without an explicit authorisation. Distributors wishing to
include the QEMU accelerator on CDs, ISO images or packages must contact
the author to know the exact terms."
therefore, maybe a .nosrc.rpm ?
