No, sorry, my system, Ubuntu 20.04 and qemu 4.2 does not like your vm
image I am afraid. After a long wait (at 100% cpu) I see a login prompt
but while the window grabs keyboard, the key strokes do not seem to be
getting through. And still at 100% of a cpu.  So, eventually, I killed
it. (I don't have that password anyway !).
So I thought I could build my own, I can see your recipe in your
script. But cannot find that debian-11.0.0-sparc64-NETINST-1.iso you
used. The wiki points to a Debian 10 one and other parts indicates its
"floating around somewhere" on the sparc mailing list, but not so I can
find it ! Sparc does not seem to be high on Debian's priority list
these days ?
If you can give me a pointer to that iso, I will have another try.....
So, thought I might try the same exercise on ppc64el - FPC322,  builds
pasdoc fine there, builds Lazarus but, interestingly, not lhelp.  So,
maybe thats something I need look into. But will have to be tomorrow,
getting late here.
