HOWTO: DosBox

<< < (2/4) > >>

OldAdamUser2:
I have one odd observation in my installation of DosBox. When I first boot up, DosBox won't start. If I invoke it through a terminal window, I get the following:


--- Quote ---tc@box:~$ dosbox
dosbox: error while loading shared libraries: libasound.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
--- End quote ---

But if I run Firefox first and then start DosBox, it works just fine. Strange.

Rich:
Hi OldAdamUser2
That's because  libasound  is a dependency of Firefox, once you run it,  libasound  gets loaded.
Try running  dosbox --help  and see if there is a switch to disable sound if you don't need it.

vinnie:
with jack is not possible to play multiple audio sources simultaneously?

OldAdamUser2:
My problem was that I had set up Firefox to load ondemand. Once I changed it to load onboot, Dosbox works just fine. No need to actually start Firefox before Dosbox.

Now my grandson can play some old school dos and windows games.
