DosBox produces the screen image using SDL, which I think is only available under X. (Wikipedia teases that there is a framebuffer implementation, but the official SDL site doesn't appear to mention it.)Chuckaluphagus wrote:Are there any command-line frontends for Dosbox?

Yeah, I know you don't need to have to be in X in order to use Dosbox.Mortimer wrote:I've tried DosBOX and it runs fine from the command line. It runs straight away at full screen.
You may find http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... =32&t=5191 a good starting pointChuckaluphagus wrote:Are there any command-line frontends for Dosbox?

I'm envisioning something with an interface like aptitude, but just for use with Dosbox and a collection of games.
If this doesn't already exist, I'm going to have to learn how to program, aren't I?

The Raspberry Pi is roughly equivalent to a 300MHz Pentium 2, so it's going to have trouble with protected mode.Protected mode games are very resource-demanding. Although they will likely run on a 1 GHz machine, it is unlikely they will run quickly or smoothly.
