Turns out, libsdl2 got uninstalled on my system. It's working again.

severach commented on 2021-11-04 14:31 (UTC)

I upgrade, reboot, rebuild. No errors.

Updating to the latest commit gives me this: ERROR: /usr/lib/dosemu/ undefined symbol: CreateTextureTarget ERROR: failed to load sdl plugin ERROR: Unable to initialize video subsystem ERROR: /usr/lib/dosemu/ undefined symbol: CreateTextureTarget

Mhmm... I'm not so sure anymore. It still works after switching back to 4a1daec2f585, it may have been something else. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Is it something I changed? I switched to $_hdimage to define my drives.

The latest AUR commit (4a1daec2f585) breaks detecting ~/.dosemu/drive_c as the C: unit in dosemu. Is this expected?

Passing the --prefix=/usr argument to default-configure fixes the /usr/local issue for me.

Downgrade autoconf to 2.69

Also it seem that it's installing things to /usr/local.

Error when trying to install:

Failed to commit transaction: conflicting files: - dosemu2-git: /usr/local/share/man already exists in filesystem (owned by filesystem)

@net147 fdpp creates different drive letters. To go from freedos to fdpp you need to make new boot files. I use fdppconf.sys and fdppauto.bat so that my existing fdconfig.sys and autoexec.bat can stay in place when I switch back to freedos. I rename kernel.sys to switch between fdpp to freedos.

freedos: kernel.sys
fdpp: kernel.sys.old

@deco I get that error too. Due to that and some other errors I've switched back to freedos for now.

I get this error

Error 404

ghderty commented on 2019-10-27 18:57 (UTC)

Is there somewhere PKGBUILD for fdpp/comcom32?

net147 commented on 2019-04-21 03:38 (UTC)

I get the following error:

fbset is an optional dependency for graphical display on console. It could be added to the list of dependencies.

severach commented on 2017-02-27 19:26 (UTC)

It's failing on freedos, not dosemu. I switched to another link.

vladimir1922 commented on 2017-02-27 19:12 (UTC)

It tries to download it from a dropbox directory, which gives a forbidden error. It can be downloaded with "git clone" though

Most patches in this package can be dropped now. Only copyright notice fixups are still relevant (and even those can be dropped, arguably).
