We have xdosemu working in BL2 with Xvesa and the full X font package,
but plain dosemu is buggy (no A, S or ^ in CLI mode).
In BL3, after installing bash, dosemu works fine. Until recently Xvesa
was not working in more than 4 colors so we did not even try xdosemu, but
now that we have the SVGA server configured correctly for this strange
Chips and Technologies (WD9024C?) video, we tried xdosemu in X again.
startx (gives us a 640 screen with 1152 virtual screen, lots of colors)
Ctrl-Esc, Enter (can't see the menu on this virtual screen)
./xdosemu: mkfontdir: command not found
You do not have the DOSEMU vga font installed and are running remote X.
You need to install the vga font on your _local_ Xserver.
Look at the readme for details. For now we start with an [sic] fixed
font, which does not display all national characters correctly.
... be warned
ERROR: X: Unable to open font "vga"...
/dosemu/freedos/../bin/dosemu.bin: relocation error:
/usr/X11R6/lib/libX11.so.6: undefined symbol: _xstat
(It exited without loading)
I think we have a font 9x15 in misc.
Has anybody used xdosemu in BL3 successfully? Should I try adding a vga
font and if so what is it named and where would I find it?
