Can some one else test this package for me?  I have just noticed that it
is horribly broken, at least on my laptop.

The SlackBuild script works fine, but the resulting package is less than
perfect.  /usr/bin/qemu looks for files in /usr/local/share/qemu when
those files are in /usr/share/qemu.  To make matters worse, when I run
it, my keyboard is entirely re-mapped, such that I cannot type anything
without hunting for what key is "ENTER"[0].  For some reason, it also
defaults to "full screen" mode.  This wouldn't be such a problem if the
keyboard wasn't re-mapped.

Anyhow, check it out and let me know.  It may be a problem on my
machine, or we may need to pull it out of the repo.

[0] Note that I never did find an "ENTER" key stroke.

It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise,
Than for a man to hear the song of fools.
