Full Version: Dosbox under Cacko and/or X/QT?
OESF Forums > General Forums > General Support and Discussion > Software
I have been looking high and low for a copy of dosbox that someone has run under cacko, a terminal of x/qt... can anybody help me shine some light on this?
okay so i started on this:

got dosbox-6.1-r3.tar

In either the console or the console in X/QT I got an error about not so i did the following symlink after finding the information on

ln -s /home/QtPalmtop/lib/ /usr/lib/

now when i try to run it, it gives me the following message

"QPaintDevice: Must construct a QApplication before a QPaintDevice. Aborted"

Can anyone shed some light on this please? I read that someone somewhere was recompiling this to use qtopia / sdl... any progress on this?
It seems that this is a SDL issue / Qtopia as this error is found in google but not with a reference so far to dosbox. what pdaxrom libraries do i need to install?
I'm not sure which version of pdaXrom davonz was using when making the programs he
has there.

When the new pdaXrom is released, we'll verify each program and try to make current IPKs for

Speaking of which -- has anyone seen or heard of or from Davon recently ?

What libraries would i need to compile dosbox on the Zaurus myself?
You need libSDL, qte (qt/embedded), qpe (qtopia). That 'should' be it. The reason for that qpaintdevice error is incorrect linking against SDL (-lSDLmain must be included before the source file in the compile command line).

I may try to get it built myself in the next day or two but am currently working on lots of other things.
