    Hello all,

    I've a fairly odd question so here's some background. I'm trying to develop an application on the emulator and would like to be able to analyse the screen output on the host processor. To this end I would like to redirect the /dev/graphics/fb0 output to a device on the host OS (Ubuntu).

    I would like to write an fb0 driver and have that send the contents of the frame buffer to a virtual device in the emulator that could be a sort of proxy for the actual dev on the Ubuntu.

    It would be nice if this method could be applied to inputs too.

    If you have any good ideas or could point me towards any useful info about the emulator or it's qemu foundations that would help.

    Any luck on this? I've got a similar need, I think.
