Qemu-Start is a small program that helps you start qemu in a safe and useful way. It has the following features:
- Start qemu as a non-privileged user
- Run qemu as a non-root user
- Propegates xauth information
- Only selected users can start qemu
- Existing tap network devices can be bound
It presumes all qemu instances will run under the same user-id (qemu). A group emulator is created; only members of this group are allowed to start qemu. Qemu is started with one ethernet interface, which is bound through a tap device. Xauthority data is automatically transferred if the DISPLAY variable is set.
