dosemu not working in TC4.2.1
« on: February 03, 2012, 07:34:37 PM »
in both installation packs 'README.bindist' in
 dosemu-freedos-1.0-bin.tgz
 dosemu-1.4.0-bin.tgz
you can read
can be used and installed without root permissions

even in root you can not execute dosemu correctly

so after compilation 'linux-3.0.3-patched.tar.xz'
 with  CONFIG_BINFMT_MISC=y
 in .config copy from config-3.0.3-tinycore
 under root is ok

under tc user dosemu error
-------------
LOWRAM mmap: Invalid argument
Segmentation fault
-------------
why is that so

I assume dosemu is buggy, and has not been updated for current kernels. The last release seems 2007.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

I've used dosbox before. But if you need a small dos, why not dos itself? freedos?

yes in UBCD is almost everything
 but sometimes while compiling kernel or ... do not want to reboot
so want to run small DOS app like 60KB *.exe *.com
for example install partition manager to USB

you say dosbox 4MB will first try bochs-2.3.7-i486.tcz 1.2MB
