Did anyone here tried to port FreeDos on ARM, or does this port exists anyway?
The question is because the rise of amazing hardware like RaspberryPi and BeagleBoard, and would be great seeing FreeDos running nativelly on it! :)
If someone here can share some information about, please do! thanks! :)

DOS is very x86 and BIOS dependant, so it wouldn't be easy to port it. Running specific Linux distributions with QEMU or DosEMU on top might have a workable result.
I wonder if Xen can run x86 guests on a non-x86 host.

Have you been to raspi.org recently ;).

I'd been wondering for a time also abt arm freedos.


This project has no files.

So yeah, best solution seems to be a *small* Linux distro, running something running dos.
Anyone fancy starting a topic, smallest Linux distro running Wine /Qemu /a VM.?
