qemu on NetBSD is a plain emulator, no hardware speedup.
I'm not sure what virtualbox would do on a NetBSD host. AFAIK this would
need some kernel support which we don't have.
Thanks. I think virtualbox might not be an option while qemu may be ruled
out due to being too slow for this application.
The leaves only Xen as an option.
I do not have any high end graphics requirements (3D etc). Could Xen still
be a problem. Here is a link to hardware specification:
No idea. Maybe vesa could work. I've not tried startx on a Xen dom0 for
a long time, all my Xen hosts use serial console.
Xen is very easy to try. The fiddly bits involve invoking VMs, but as a
dom0 for testing it's basically little more 1) put on xen kernel, 2) alter
