This the step i followed to install dosemu

1. Compile

- (optional) adjust compiletime-settings; see
for help.

- make
- create a seperate directory and run
$SRCDIR/configure (or $SRCDIR/default-configure; see below)
in that directory.

2a. Install

- download dosemu-freedos-<version>bin.tgz from or one of its
mirrors and rename it to dosemu-freedos-bin.tgz
- su - (become root)
- make install


followed it step by step

but it keeps saying

Sorry, there is no operating system.
Please try to install FreeDOS from dosemu-freedos-*-bin.tgz

Do i need to do any changes to some config files

Did the install place freedos in the correct location? On mine it's in ~/dosemu/freedos and I have a .dosemu directory with log files and my drive settings. Since the file is a .tgz maybe you can just do installpkg *freedos*.tgz to install it.

There is a /etc/dosemu directory with the global config files. One mentions a ~/.dosemurc. Look into that for user-specific config.

Personaly I haven't used dosemu since I installed it. I prefer DOSBox.
