running .com files from ubuntu linux
« on: 19:59, 04 April 15 »
Is it possible to run a .com file from ubuntu linux. e.g. no$cart?

I tried using dosbox, it complained about not finding /dev/cdrom and didn't do anything.

If not, then I may be forced to re-implement no$cart to work on linux.

Hmmm.. I think I was using dosemu...

I installed dosbox and now dosemu and dosbox work fine.
Strange.
