Re: Start DOS application from linux



Thanks Jaime,

What I found works for me is "/usr/bin/xdosemu -w -E c:\mybat.bat"

Thought I had posted here, maybe not.

Thanks again,
Rick

Hi Frank and Rick,

The line will (likely) work as Rick wants it to, as long as the "-dumb" is removed. (It worked for me.)

Try using:   /usr/bin/dosemu -input 'c:\\mybat.bat\r'

I've done this before, but I've forgotten how. I want to start a DOS application from a linux shell script. I want the script to start xdosemu and then start the application (blood.exe) and then when I exit the application I want the script to exit xdosemu. I have done this before, but it's been a while and I've forgotten how I did it. Can someone refresh my memory?

/usr/bin/dosemu -dumb -input 'c:\\mybat.bat\r'

Put "exitemu" as the last line in mybat.bat.

Frank,

I've tried this. The game starts and I can hear the sounds, but I don't get a window or full screen game image. Just sounds.

Thanks,
Rick
