V86-64 is a Linux kernel patch that adds the vm86() system call currently missing in the x86-64 Linux kernel. It allows DOS programs to run under DOSEMU natively without CPU emulation.
|Operating Systems||POSIX Linux|
Release Notes: Building on kernel versions 2.6.24 and newer was fixed. A kernel patch is no longer supported, only the v86dev driver. An LD_PRELOAD'able patch for 32-bit DOSEMU was added. A simple patch was added for WINE, which allows its DOS VM to work. Some bugs have been fixed.
Release Notes: V86 monitor now works in a separate address space. The device driver interface no longer depends on the VM86_64 option and can be built as a separate module. A standalone package for v86dev that does not need the kernel to be rebuilt was provided. The kernel patch is now less invasive. Some serious bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: A bug with garbage in segment registers was fixed. VME support was added. Initial support for the device driver interface was added, as was a DOSEMU patch to use it.
