Re: Mike OS on Raspberry Pi

The instructions were mostly based on experience. I found this thread because I had recently been playing with MikeOS on the Pi and was wondering if anyone else had tried the same. Thats why I included the config editing. Also I find it easier than typing in commands every time you load dosbox.. 4. ...

The whole point of trying to install MikeOS was for its flexibility and how heavily it can be changed, as the OP stated.

Re: Mike OS on Raspberry Pi

In addition to Mike OS needing an x86 processor, it also needs the video characteristics provided by a PC with a typical PC video card, such as CGA, EGA or VGA and predecessor video systems, meaning it needs video character memory a a certain memory location and color video memory at another locati...

Raspbian runs native in 32-bit mode and is highly optimized. There are some 64-bit Linux distros you can run on the Pi too.

Type sudo apt-get install dosbox (make sure you have an internet connection to your pi) 3. Download MikeOS files to your Pi 4. This step is optional. Navigate to ...
