Hi've downloaded the last binaries from :
http://dosemu.sourceforge.net/stable/

USE dosemu-1.4.0-bin.tgz
USE dosemu-freedos-1.0-bin.tgz

NOT dosemu-1.4.0-1.i386.rpm (all-in-one RPM, includes FreeDOS)

After installation i 've tried to start a simple program from dos, but don't start (no error message).
If i start the dosemu box from utilities i receive a message error (like command com interpreter not found)

Someone can help me?

P.s. it's possible install hx extender (HXRT+HXGUI) and himemx and emmx386 instead himem en emm386 in package?

Thanks

Roberto

That sounds like it's missing "command.com" (or whatever variation of the command interpreter they might have installed)

Let's go after the problem from a different angle:

http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/dosemu

Get and install these 2 packages:

http://http.us.debian.org/debian/pool/contrib/d/dosemu/dosemu_1.4.0+svn.1999-1_i386.deb

http://http.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/e/eglibc/libc6_2.10.2-6_i386.deb

Then test it out (my test indicates that it looks and feels like DOS -- but I didn't install my fortran compiler, to test running programs other than those installed).

And, as always, make a backup of your pupsave before installing new software.

I use DOSBox without any probs. I use the DOSBox pet provided by mywolfe here:
https://code.google.com/p/mywolfe/downloads/detail?name=dosbox-0.73-i486.pet

and SDL-1.2.13-i486.pet provided by sikpuppy here:
