Core Dump when Executing Xilinx Qemu

Hello All, 

I am trying to launch a Qemu session for the zcu102 board.I am using a 64bit ARM host running Linux Kernel 4.14.0-115.el7a.0.1.aarch64 and CentOS7. 

After discovering the Xilinx Github repo for Qemu, and subsequent documentation about using it for the zcu102 board, I followed the instructions on the Xilinx confluence page to download, configure, and build the latest Qemu from Xilinx. I am following the instructions outlined in this confluence page specifically . This includes using the following configure before building 

./configure --target-list="aarch64-softmmu,microblazeel-softmmu" --enable-fdt --disable-kvm --disable-xen

The configure and build process complete without any errors, but when I try to execute the binary that is generated (./aarch64-softmmu/qemu-system-aarch64) with and/or without launch options the binary seg faults and core dumps. I would expect even the Xilinx build of Qemu to support the "-M help" or "-help" launch arguments, but even those result in the seg fault. A GDB of the binary doesnt reveal too much for me, but I will post the back trace just in case its useful. 

(gdb) backtrace
#0  0x0000ffffbdd2683c in strlen () from /lib64/
#1  0x0000ffffbe0ffa48 in g_strdup () from /lib64/

#6  0x000000000041daa0 in main (argc=1, argv=0xfffffffff388, envp=<optimized out>) at vl.c:3153

Any ideas what the issue may be? I am able to download the Upstream Qemu (, but wanted to try to use the Xilinx fork of Qemu for compatibility with the ZCU102 BSP/Board Models in a Qemu session as I have had separate issues launching them with the Upstream Qemu. 


Thanks for any information.
