    Default About a MS-DOS application in Linux...

    Hey there people. I have this application that run under DOS (.exe file), and I want to migrate to Linux. Is there a way to make this application run in OpenSuse?
    Oh, another thing. Do you know of any program for accounting in OpenSuse? Thanks in advance.

    DOS being *actual* DOS or Windows 16/32 application?

    DOSBox would be a DOS emulator and Wine would run Win16/32 applications.

    For more information on Wine, please refer to:
    Wine - openSUSE

    Well, as far as I know, it is a DOS application (screen turns black before entering, there are no graphics but coloured text and other old DOS-like things.) What's that DOS emulator you were talking about?

    There is dosbox.
    Dosbox - openSUSE
    ... I haven't used it for years. ...

    There is also dosemu:
    Dosemu - openSUSE
    ... I also haven't used ti for years.

    The important difference between DOSBox and DOSemu is that DOSemu emulates the original MSDOS and DOSBox the later version. So, if it won't work with DOSBox it probably makes calls which only DOSemu can intercept.

    Thanks for the help. I'll try those two.
