Fixes for a couple of DOS-EMU problems

Fixes for a couple of DOS-EMU problems

Post by pmkie.. » Thu, 08 Apr 1993 02:29:35

Well, I have DOS-EMU 0.48 up and running, and I must say, I am impressed
with it. An awfully functional vm86 considering we don't have the services
of MS or QDeck at hand. However, I am having a few problems..... (of course!)

   - I want the hdi image to be E:. No problem. I get a working set up
     where hdimage is C:, hda1 is D: and hdb1: is E:. Now I just swap around
     the paramaters in hddisktab (or whatever that structure was named..) and
     presto! an working C: and D: (hda1 and hdb1). But....E: is trash. Its
     contents appear to be completely random...changing when I do anything,
     sometime even a 'dir'...sometimes its just junk, but sometimes its randomly
     connected to a dos directory...

  -  When I use -k mode on startup, quite a few keys don't work, for example:
     'a' and 'o'. 'A' and 'O' work, however. As do ALT-XXX...for 'a' and 'o'.

  - I joined MSDOS (sucessfully), but after a day and a half, no potatoes. Is
    there another channel for discussing programming DOS-EMU issues...I would
    like to implement some virtual hardware (custom) for a DOS program...

Any help on these three problems would be greatly appreciated.

Suggestion: Why not add a complete DOS fossil in the would be
            easier then virtual hardware, and make DOS-EMU compatible with
            quite a bit of DOS based serial software. I, personally, and
            thinking of Front Door (still haven't got time to get RFMAIL 0.50
            ported yet....)

Sigh.. the length of this message has gotton a bit out of hand.

Keep the noise down. Use E-Mail for replies. I will summarize  to news if a few
people email me for it.

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'
redefinition of `struct vm86plus_struct'
make[3]: *** [vm86.o] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory
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.
