    Lightbulb DOSBox 0.73 is out!

    So a new version is out (look at the changelog at dosbox.com)

    I wanted to provide a way for any Ubuntu user (this includes multiple architectures) to use it right away.

    Disclaimer: I've had the dependencies (read as what you need to build dosbox) installed for years, so if I forgot one, let me know.

    Just cut n' paste this into terminal

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential autoconf automake
    sudo apt-get build-dep dosbox
    wget "http://superb-west.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/dosbox/dosbox-0.73.tar.gz"
    tar -xvf dosbox-0.73.tar.gz
    cd dosbox-0.73
    ./autogen.sh
    ./configure
    make
    sudo make install
    What this does, gets build dependencies (let me know if one is missing)
    Downloads the tarball from sourceforge, extracts it, builds it then installs.

    This should be completely automatic, perhaps move it to Guides/Tutorials.

    Thanks in advance regarding feedback

    P.S. There are some DOS games here
    http://liberatedgames.com/
    The games there have been licensed to be at least free to download, and some completely open sourced.

    The best part of this release is the scancode fix for ubuntu so the keys actually operate like they should since 8.10 broke it.

    note that 0.73 is in Karmic now, you can grab that version, if you'd rather not use some random guy's PPA.

    Can you tell me where to look for the executable after I've followed your instructions to configure, compile, and install DOSBox 0.73 ?

    Thanks
