Re: BBS running on Raspberry Pi

German_Psycho: I too have been trying to get PCBoard running on the Pi. Problem i have so far is that PCB expects share.exe to be loaded. Unfortunately, DOSBox doesn't support share.exe yet, and DOSEMU doesn't emulate x86 architecture which PCB needs in order to run. I'm not that versed in linux to ...

Re: BBS running on Raspberry Pi

This is the coolest thread yet !!

I used to run an 11 node PCBoard BBS under DOS/DESQviewX.

I would LOVE to see a port of PCB to the Pi. Not sure that is even possible, but God i would do anything to help with that project. Wasn't it all written in Borland C++ ??
