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
What this does, gets build dependencies (let me know if one is missing)
sudo apt-get install build-essential autoconf automake
sudo apt-get build-dep dosbox
tar -xvf dosbox-0.73.tar.gz
sudo make install
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
The games there have been licensed to be at least free to download, and some completely open sourced.
