Right on the money. DOSBOX does the trick just fine. :smile:

I was upgrading my kernel to a recent 3.15 version and am now unable to run dosemu with DPMI support - no vpa :sad:; at the startup of dosemu I get this message:

ERROR: DPMI initialization failed, disabling

64-bit kernel perhaps? Maybe it's related to this discussion: http://lkml.org/lkml/2014/4/11/542 (I haven't read it in full, but they talk about breaking 16-bit apps).

If your processor is fast enough to run in 64 bits, it's also fast enough to run DOSBOX, and that one should do DPMI just fine.
