Description Red Hat Bugzilla 1999-04-16 22:54:06 EDT
According to the docs (README.txt), I should be able to
within dos type 'lredir' to show the maps.

I do, and I get:

C:\>lredir
ERROR: bad command or filename
Comment 1 Red Hat Bugzilla 1999-04-16 22:58:59 EDT
Oh, I see.

The problem is the default path isn't set to contain C:\DOSEMU .  That
might be a good idea.
Comment 2 Red Hat Bugzilla 1999-05-27 16:36:59 EDT
There's no autoexec.bat in the default dosemu. Therefore there is no
path.
Comment 3 Red Hat Bugzilla 1999-06-03 05:14:59 EDT
Adding an autoexec.bat with a mimimal configuration seems like
a good idea.
Comment 4 Red Hat Bugzilla 1999-06-09 13:14:59 EDT
*** Bug 2225 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

All the documentation files are difficult to read.  For
example, README.txt has text like this:

     l^Hla^Han^Hnc^Hch^Hhe^Hec^Hck^Hk.^H.e^Hex^Hxe^He
        ???

Bleah!

They're like that in the source tar-ball. Shrug?

Distributing unreadable documentation because "that's what came with
the package" is silly.
Comment 5 Red Hat Bugzilla 1999-06-09 13:22:59 EDT
The distributed version of freedos would not read autoexec.bat and
config.sys. I updated to beta2 of freedos and now autoexec.bat and
config.sys are properly read.

Added a minimal config.sys and autoexec.bat to put c:\dosemu in the
path.

I now run s/.^H//g on all documentation to remove the ^H's.

Also added all of the freedos dos utilities and vim to the default
hdimage in dosemu-freedos. Now the distributed hdimage is actually
useable.

As an aside; lredir, although it is in the path now, will not work in
the distributed freedos hdimage. Generating a hdimage with msdos will
allow lredir to work if you load the emufs.sys driver in your
config.sys.

SRPM is waiting for jbj in my home directory
/home/saqadoc/dale/dosemu-0.99.10-6.src.rpm.
