Package version:-


bochs for Debian

In order to use Bochs you need to follow these steps:

  - Gunzip the sample bochsrc file (in examples/bochsrc.gz) into ~/.bochsrc.

  - Take a look at ~/.bochsrc and adapt it to your needs. In particular you
    need to set the "boot:" parameter. The default is to use /dev/cdrom for
    boot. If you want to start from floppy or hard disk you'll need to


Bochs supports several user interface plugins, the following is the
current list:

  - wx
  - sdl
  - x
  - svga
  - term

In this document we will refer with '%ui%' to any of those plugins.
In Debian those are split in independent packages, having installed
the bochs-%ui% package we could use it in one of the following ways:

1) Run it only once, using command line parameters.

	$ bochs -q 'confi


This package's orig file contains a pristine Bochs source tree, with some
binary blobs removed (like the propietary BIOS VGABIOS-elpin-2.40 which is
not free software as per the DFSG).

There's a script to help generating this cleaned tarball:

	$ debian/ tarball <upstream-tarball>

or a snapshot from CVS:

	$ debian/ snapshot
