how to compile dosbox
« on: July 25, 2020, 12:16:50 PM »
the instructions included in dosbox-0.72.tar.xz are extremly vauge.
all it says is ./configure. then just the word make. it says the binary source is in the /src dir but there are lots and lots of files in there. obviously these instructions are for people that don't need instructions

so i typed ./config in the terminal because it litterally says to do nothing else. of course that did nothing

also is there a newer version of dosbox that has been ported to tinycore??

Hi Iowa_Nate
Dosbox version 0.74 is in TC10:
http://tinycorelinux.net/10.x/x86/tcz/

You can try downloading:
http://tinycorelinux.net/10.x/x86/tcz/dosbox.tcz
http://tinycorelinux.net/10.x/x86/tcz/dosbox.tcz.dep
http://tinycorelinux.net/10.x/x86/tcz/libpng12.tcz
into your  tce/optional  directory.

Then let tce-load fetch any missing dependencies and install it:
Code: [Select]
tce-load -wil dosbox
Then see if it runs.
