thanks!

$HOME/.qemurc

Thanks!

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.

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...
