Does anybody know about the status of doscmd, which is included in pkgsrc but
is only for i386?
I tried to build doscmd from pkgsrc, thinking doscmd was generally for i386,
and running NetBSD 5.1 got:
ERROR: This package is only available for these platforms: NetBSD-1.*-i386.
ERROR: This package has set PKG_FAIL_REASON:
ERROR: doscmd-19960502.2 is not available for NetBSD-5.1-i386
*** Error code 1
make: stopped in /usr/pkgsrc/emulators/doscmd
(end of log file)
So doscmd is only for some outdated releases of NetBSD? I would not have
expected doscmd to be rendered incompatible with NetBSD > 1.5.x.
I had wondered if doscmd might be usable for Linux and for NetBSD on amd64, but
I guess that question is answered in the negative.
I assume there is no NetBSD <= 1.5.x for amd64 because amd64 is a newer chip
Best DOS emulator I ever had, where DOS programs could be run without an
installed copy of DOS, was the DOS session in OS/2 Warp 3 and 4, and I can only
guess that this is continued in eComStation (http://www.ecomstation.com/). My
time with OS/2 ended abruptly in the single-digit days of April 2001 when OS/2
chkdsk, running automatically when I rebooted following a crash, ran amok and
trashed the hard-disk data. I was never able to boot OS/2 after that, even
from the installation floppy disks, though I could boot DR-DOS 7.03 and Linux.
