Description roystgnr 1999-02-09 14:40:18 EST
The RPMs for dosemu as distributed for Red Hat 5.2 (and the
rawhide release I tried) seem to be lacking a number of
important utilities and support scripts which are
distributed and built with the source tarball -
"setup-hdimage", "mkdexe", "dexeconfig", and such are the
most important for me, as I am trying to get legacy BASIC
executables running under Linux.

Alan, Cristian, the RPM spec file has the following line in it:

# install dexe utils
#install -m 755 dexe/{do_mtools,extract-dos,mkdexe,myxcopy}

Is there a reason we aren't installing these?  Alan, it would seem
from your changelog comment it has something to do with a security
flaw in the yacc parser.

the dexe utilities are now included in dosemu-0.99.10-4 and later.
