Hi, I am trying to build a vm guest, on top of an x86_64 openwrt host.
The hardware of host is quite limited: an Atom D525 CPU, 2GB memory. The present load of router is pretty light, next to nil.
The guest is planned to be a light weight x86 linux distro, with gui and latest firefox browser. Nothing more.
I only run it occasionally in case some trivial browser-server activities call for a modern desktop browser,
but then I am too lazy or inconvenient to fire up my main desktop PC.
I will connect to the said guest via remote desktop with my pad, so the vm guest would be running headless.
I know that there is a qemu package for openwrt, and D525 does not support vt-x. It's expected the VM guest would not be running at native speed.
Is it feasible? Or the vm guest would simply crash.
I can tolerate a boot time of 5 mins, since I used to run Win 10 X64 natively on the same hardware before I converted it to an openwrt router.
Win10 experience is unpleasant but usable.
Has anyone tried set up such vm host on openwrt with limited hardware like this, would you mind sharing your experience?
