Slackbuilds.org: dosbox not available for Slackware 13?


Hi all,

Can anyone find dosbox for Slackware 13 on Slackbuilds.org? It's mentioned in the changelog as being updated for 13, but I can't find it on the site.

Thanks,

Been looking for dosemu as well for Slackware 13.

Used the 12.2 slackbuild for dosemu, built & installed successfully. Running now without problems.

I suggest that you drop a mail to the Slackbuilds.org User list: slackbuilds-users@slackbuilds.org.

No, I cannot find it Slackware 13, only Slackware 12.2

Maybe it has something to do with this. Dosbox is likely to want CONFIG_SECURITY_DEFAULT_MMAP_MIN_ADDR=0.

Patched kernels and kernel packages for Linux 2.6.29.6 to address
a bug in proto_ops structures which could allow a user to use the
kernel sendpage operation to execute arbitrary code in page zero.
This could allow local users to gain escalated privileges.
This flaw was discovered by Tavis Ormandy and Julien Tinnes of the
Google Security Team.
For more information, see:
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename...=CVE-2009-2692
In addition, these kernels change the CONFIG_SECURITY_DEFAULT_MMAP_MIN_ADDR
kernel config option value to 4096, which should prevent the execution
of arbitrary code by future NULL dereference bugs that might be found
in the kernel. If you are compiling your own kernel, please check this
option in your .config. If it is set to =0, you may wish to edit it
to 4096 (or some other value > 0) and then reconfigure, or the kernel
will not have default protection against zero page attacks from
userspace.
(* Security fix *)
Edit:
Then again, maybe not. There is a recent build for Slackware64 on AlienBob's wiki.

It didn't show for me either, but I use sbopkg and that pretty much automates the process, I guess it just knew where to look.
