graphics in xdos(emu), how?

hello,

In the documentation for dosemu I found some information relating that it should be possible to to use vga graphics in xdos. If so, I haven't been able to get this to work. xdos runs fine for text-based 16 color apps., but every time I switch to generic 640*480 16 colors the screen gets screwed up. I tried to execute "vgaon.com", but this resulted in an error message:

        ERROR: CAN'T DO VIDEO INIT, BIOS NOT MAPPED!

I have a Stealth 3D 2000 card with 2MB and the S3 chip.
I ran 'getrom > /etc/dosemu/vbios' and my video entry in dosemu.conf is as
follows:

video { vga console graphics fullrestore memsize 2048 vbios_file /etc/dosemu/vbios}

XWindows runs fine, and so dos graphics on the console.
xdos looks ok, until I run graphics mode.

Any suggestions?

Thanks, -Borries (demeler@bioc02.uthscsa.edu)

Not all the video modes works in xdos yet. Many of them works fine in console mode of dos emulator. Anyway, some 320x200x256colors applications works in xdos.
