I ran into a problem starting DosBox and then getting the arrows keys to work on my old IBM ThinkPad.
When I tried to start DosBox nothing happened, so I opened terminal and ran dosbox from the command-line.
That returned the following error "error while loading shared libraries: libSDL_sound-1.0.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"
Searching the forum I found a post from marco which in part said "As it turns out the missing dependencies are: 'sdl-sound.tcz', 'libasound.tcz', and 'libvorbis.tcz'."
I loaded sdl-sound.tcz, libasound.tcz, libvorbis.tcz and DosBox opened.
The next problem I encountered was the arrow keys were not working.
The fix for this was to set usecancodes to false in the dosbox-0.74.conf file.
Afterwards I was able to install Windows 3.1 with sound, video and joy stick drivers.
Now my grandson can play some old school dos and windows games.
