dosemu & kernel 2.0.x

dosemu & kernel 2.0.x

Post by Chris Aquin » Tue, 23 Jul 1996 04:00:00



Hi.
From everything that I've read, I understand that I need 0.63.1.xx to get
dosemu running under the 2.0.x kernels

these new versions of dosemu compile fine, but won't work at 16 bit color
under X.  This is due to a problem with TrueColor mode & VGAEMU.

ok..fine.

I want to know if there is *any* way to get dosemu (xdos) working under
linux 2.0.x & X at 16 bit color. (can I patch up the 0.60.4 version? or
maybe not use vgaemu or something?)

Please help

Chris

 
 
 

dosemu & kernel 2.0.x

Post by Michael » Thu, 25 Jul 1996 04:00:00


I am in a bad luck!  I can't get the 1.8, 1.54 dosemu compile well.
Keep complaining something
1.54 ... Error..No such rule..
1.8   ... can find.. vm86.h

I can't get the one come with Debain 1.1 work either.  
Anybody has a hint on this?

Thanks..

1. dosemu & 2.0 kernels

What's the secret of getting dosemu to work with the new 2.x kernels?
dosemu-0.60-x gives me:

ERROR: can't get floppy parameter of /dev/fd0 (Interrupted system call)
error exit: (5,0x0005) in_sigsegv: 0 ignore_segv: 0
Not a good day to die!!!!!

and dosemu-0.63-66 gives me a black screen of death.

I find no documentation for any of this in the new kernel docs.
Anyone know how to fix this?
