I just installed dosbox in a Fedora 18 system
When I run dosbox at the command line it says
Exit to error: Can't init SDL no available video device
This is on a Dell C610 laptop
What am I doing wrong?
Hi,The title pretty much says it all. I can't get TES Daggerfall to install in dosbox, I've been through a few tutorials and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. I haven't used dosbox before so I'm not sure of...really anything at all. I have no idea if I've done something wrong or what!
I bought Duke Nukem 1 + 2 and Keen 1-5 on Steam on Windows for a few bucks the other day. Steam automatically installs dosbox which is used to play those old games.

I decided to have a good go at war2 again.
I had it all up and running perfectly fine not fullscreen (with no sound but I'll fix that later)

I need to work in DOS, so I installed the 16 bit Vim (found at the Vim website) in a folder using DosBox.

How can I fix this?
