Where is qemu configured at the user level?  I'm looking for the equivalent of something like qemu.rc or .qemurc...something similar.

So we have to use a shell wrapper like vqemu; there's not a 'native' config file?

What kind of environment you need the configuration file? Regular shell (bash, csh)?

For regular shell environment, you can use "alias" to do the same thing as $HOME/.qemurc.

ok, can do that.  Can use vqemu as well.  I'm guessing since someone saw the need to write a wrapper means that the answer to my question is 'no, as designed and written, qemu does not look for a user-level config file' ?

I think the better answer would have been something like "there is no provision within qemu for per-user default options like is typically provided by something like a ~/.qemurc file.  Instead, you have to use something like vqemu...
