Little confusion about installing DOS-EMU

Little confusion about installing DOS-EMU

Post by Sjoerd Kro » Thu, 04 Jan 1996 04:00:00



Haai there,

I almost don't dare to ask, but I want to run a few DOS programs under
Linux.
I tried a few things described in the docs. First I installed DOS-EMU off
from the slackware 3.0 CD with pkgtool. Next I followed the docs
(about dosemu users and so on)and was able to boot from the A-drive. With
the dir command I should be able to see the C-drive. But no way. I got
invalid drive specification?? The same for the D-drive.
the second thing I treid was to recompile DOSEMU with no luck, caus I got
many errors in the compile :-(
Question : How to install DOS-EMU? Do I have to recompile it or should
           installation with pkgtool do it?

Thanks in avance...

Greetings,
          Sjoerd Krol

1. DOS-emu with 2.0.29

I just upgraded from 2.0.26 to 2.0.29. Since my dosemu modules no longer
worked with the new version, I recompiled dos-emu. I consistantly get
errors during the dos-emu compile when it reached the emumod directory
and dies.
Following is the message from make:

In file included from vm86.c:40:
/usr2/ktheis2/progs/dosemu-0.64.0/src/include/vm86plus.h:8: redefinition
of `struct vm86plus_info_struct'
/usr2/ktheis2/progs/dosemu-0.64.0/src/include/vm86plus.h:15:
redefinition of `struct vm86plus_struct'
make[3]: *** [vm86.o] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory
`/usr2/ktheis2/progs/dosemu-0.64.0/src/arch/linux/emumod'
make[2]: *** [arch/linux/emumod] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr2/ktheis2/progs/dosemu-0.64.0/src'
make[1]: *** [doslibnew] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr2/ktheis2/progs/dosemu-0.64.0/src'
make: *** [default] Error 2

Needless to say, I am annoyed. What am I doing wrong? I deleted the
directory sources and re-installed with the original tar sources and
still get the same errors.
