Missing dynamic core in dosbox
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:10 EST
Description of problem:
Well, it seems that, probably due to the x86_64 build, dosbox does not support
the dynamic core.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Setup dosbox.conf with the cpu option "dynamic"
dosbox does report it cannot do dynamic and it switches to normal
dosbox uses the dynamic core
Of course, it would be really appreciated a, second, i386 build, with dynamic
core (and whatever else is missing) enabled.
Final note, I'm experiencing random lockups of dosbox, having the i386 build
might help to understand where the problem could be.
I was just un-installing the x86_64 version and installing the i386, from Fedora
7 i386. This one worked fine, dynamic core is, obviously, functioning and I had
no lockups at all.
All in all I think it would be much better to have the i386 version only,
instead of the x86_64. I do not think there is any advantage in a 64 bit
configuration to run old dos software.
dosbox-0.71-1.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
It seems the new release fixes the problems.
I would suggest to close this bug.
dosbox-0.71-1.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
