I am trying to start barrelfish on x86_64 machine with qemu installed with
no-kvm. After compilation went well, when hitting $ make sim I get that
error which looks a bit weird for me as I don't understand the relation
between the SDL device and the message error appears below as I am just
seeking a barrelfish shell:
