OK, I'm stumped.
I've just downloaded dosemu0.49 and am trying to install it on linux.99pl8A.
The README say that first I need to apply some patches, IPCDELTA and MMAP.DIFF,
and further says that IPCDELTA doesn't patch cleanly so I must hand edit
two files (can't recall the names at the moment). So I download IPCDELTA,
but it makes no mention of not patching cleanly on .99pl8/9. SO....
Will IPCDELTA cleanly patch on linux .99pl8A? Why does my SLS distribution
claim to be .99pl8A rather that just .99pl8? Have the patches already been
made? If IPCDELTA does not patch cleanly, what EXACTLY do I have to do
to clean up after tha patch. Is there a distribution with these patches
Where is MMAP.DIFF? I've looked everywhere for this file, not even
archie can find it, nor can I find it in the SLS distribution.
Oh yah, one other question. There was a footnote in dosemu saying that
if you doen't plan on using EMS then the patch isn't required. Does
he mean both patches, or just MMAP.DIFF?
I'd like to thank the author of dosemu for his hardwork, but the
documentation could still use a few tweeks to make it clear to us
linux newbies who aren't familiar with kernal patching.
