Re: Games for babies

You could look at tuxpaint and gcomprise my daughter loves them both can be installed with apt There are some older pieces of software but I'm not sure how well they run on a Pi (work in progress).

Re: Could use help trying to run an old windows program

… isn't qemu the same idea and that can run on the pi? No, VirtualBox is x86 virtualization; qemu is processor emulation. A Raspberry Pi can't do x86 virtualization because it's not an x86 processor. There was a thing about running Windows 98 in Dosbox-X in The MagPi a while back. Did that not work...

Re: Could use help trying to run an old windows program

This might be a thankless task on a Raspberry Pi. This is what VirtualBox on an x86 machine does really well. Set up a small VM, install Win98SE, create an ISO of the CD-ROM, insert it and play. Anything on dosbox is always so dependent on what exact version you're using and whether it matches the ...

So it turns out via a random find that my approach to replacing the default reboot and shutdown commands isn't so crazy in fact a program called Molly-Guard does this exact same thing! It's used to prevent you from accidental shutdowns and reboots. So maybe replacing these with scripts is viable aft...
