DOSEMU

From LQWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

DOSEMU is an intermediary between Linux and FreeDOS, or other DOS systems, which enable DOS programs - from old games to business applications - to run under Linux, both from the terminal and, in X, in a terminal emulator (not to be confused with OS emulators).

Installation can be as simple as unpacking the DOSEMU binaries and the FreeDOS system and tweaking a config file. While not all applications work perfectly, it probably enjoys a higher success rate than Windows emulators, since it handles a simpler system.
