QEMU Image Builder

I made a shell script for building Devuan image usable by QEMU (qemu-system-aarch64 or qemu-system-arm) at
I was able to build and boot images of Devuan Chimaera armel and Devuan Beowulf arm64. Other combinations of releases and architectures should also work. Host CPU can be anything, but recent ARM CPUs allow much faster QEMU emulation by KVM. The script just apt-get linux-image-arm64 (or linux-image-armmp-lpae) and grub-efi-aarch64 (or grub-efi-arm) to the image. It does nothing special.
