I really want to play Prince of Persia on my linux box :) Appearently a lot of people pulled it off.
I downloaded, compiled and installed the latest stable release of DOSEMU (with FreeDos).
I can get a DOS prompt, and run very basic text mode apps. When I try to run prince.exe (prince of persia), DOSEMU stops responding... It kind of hangs, without any error messages. When I run xdosemu, the X Window, and I try the same thing, the window just closes, also without any error messages. I've tried playing around with the configuration ( enable graphics, enable special video card ports access, chipset, processor: 386/486...) It doesn't change anything (though I'm not quite sure which configuration file DOSEMU is using)
Anyway, I'm running Red Hat 8, with XFree86 that came with it + Fluxbox (latest stable release).
My graphics chipset is Nvidia Geforce4-MX440.
Anyone who can get me playing Prince of Persia on this box (on linux, that is), gets my very last 166 question points :)
