Re: Video from 486 Sometimes in Black/White

(mono/color, there's a detection pin on the VGA connector). There used to be a pin to detect monochrome monitors (pin 12). It was repurposed in later monitors for DDC, turning it into an I2C data pin. Unfortunately not all monitors have internal pull-ups (required for I2C to work properly) and …

Re: Speedy3D support in DOSBox

Which version of the GPL? There's more than one 1.0, 2.0 or 3.0? They have different rules. As far as I'm aware Dosbox runs on GPL 2.0. You really want to get this deep into the weeds? Here's the relevant portion straight from the GPL 2.0 FAQ, the bolded sections are what apply in this case: When …

Re: Speedy3D support in DOSBox

If you want to keep hammering your point about licensing could you create another thread for it? I created this one to ask for help with developement. The opening post of this thread is you asking if what you're trying to do is permitted. As a contributor to DOSBox (i.e. a current rights-holder of …

Re: Speedy3D support in DOSBox

You can as long as the closed source component isn't part of "shared process space." No, you can't. Not if the closed source component is essential to the operation, i.e. the main "product" will not function without it. They can talk via a service like a socket. For instance an open source browser …

Re: Speedy3D support in DOSBox

Please don't take advice from robertmo. If you're making changes to DOSBox to make it rely directly on a closed source product (whether it runs as part of the same process or not), you won't legally be able to distribute that build of DOSBox to anyone else, neither as source code nor compiled. …

Re: Dosbox potentially affected by backdoor

Safe to file this as FUD as far as DOSBox is concerned. liblzma is not a direct dependency, and analysis has shown that the backdoor is targetted at sshd: In the malicious code, the library checks argv[0], which is the name of the program being executed, for /usr/bin/sshd . Additionally it seems to …
