Following the previous post about the Maemo SDK VMWare appliance, Marcelo has successfully converted the vmware image to a Qemu image. The good news here is we save almost 2 GB with this new image. The bad news is you'll probably need to set up Kqemu to get an acceptable performance.
So, to convert the vmware image to a qemu one, just run the following command:
$ qemu-img convert -c -f vmdk maemo-sdk.vmdk -O qcow maemo-sdk-2.qcow
And finally run it with:
qemu -boot c -hda maemo-sdk.qcow -localtime
