Access denied when running dos programs

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Running dosemu 1.40 on linux mint ((k)ubuntu derivative).

I have been running dosemu (and dos programs) on a local harddisk without problem, but now wish to run on a network drive (a NAS box). I copied the folders with the dos files (msdos 6.2) and dos programs to the network drive and set the "$_hdimage" parameter to point to the location for msdos on the network drive.

The problem I am having is that all msdos programs run without problem but all non-msdos (WP, DataPerfect) programs produce an "Access denied" message.

I have read relevant material at but my knowledge is limited and I cannot work out the solution.

Help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Victor Warner.

Relevant settings:

The network drive is mounted in fstab as follows:

"// /vw/maxtor cifs username=victor,password=XXXXX,uid=victor,gid=users,umask=0 0 0"

.dosemu reads:

"$_hdimage = "/vw/maxtor/dos"
$_lpt1 = "lpr -P lexmark"
$_lpt3 = "lpr -P PDF"

$_X_keycode=(off) $_X_font="vga12x30"
$_X_fullscreen = (off)
$_X_title="Dosemu (as user)""
