    Lovely, one step closer to my long wished openpower (or will it be risc-v by then?) workstation.

    I dont care that much for performance. As long as it is able to run 4k steam streaming i am happy.

      I'm kind of a noob on this topic. I've used BOX86 + WINE in the past, and was able to play older and low-requirement (32 bit) windows games on my RaspberryPi4 with success.
      How is Hangover different from this setup?

        By trying to run as little x86 code as possible, and thus as much native code as possible.

            I *think* we have qemu-static working translating ARM -> x86 or armv7 -> aarch64.

            As in create an x86 chroot, copy across qemu-static-x86 (built for ARM) and fiddle with binmiscctl (on FreeBSD).

            From experience when going from x86 -> ARM this works pretty fast because it is only doing full emulation on the userland binary, not the underlying kernel calls. Much faster than full system emulation (what most people use Qemu for).
