Running dosemu via in.telnet & xinetd



Hello all

I have been following instructions from here :

Although I have managed to get say for example, "mc" running (midnight commander) and displaying through the telnet window, just a test. I am unable to get 'dosemu' running through it.

My Distribution is Debian 6
Dosemu is dosemu (1.4.0+svn.2080-1)

Conditions :
- Running dosemu localy as a non privileged user no fault is exhibited
- Running dosemu localy as a privledged user no fault is exhibited

Problem occurs :
When in.telnetd uses my shell script /usr/sbin/bbs to launch dosemu

In the telnet window, running dosemu, you are unable to "CHDIR", eg.. you wont be able to go for example "CD BBS", Or if you make a directory, it will always knock off the first letter in every block of words after a command. For example sake.

mkdir "BBS"
It will make the folder "BS"

innnnnnteresting :p

But it only appears like this in DOSEMU. On the ext3 filesystem in the bash console the files are correct :)
Now this only happens if dosemu is involked/run via in.telnetd as part of it's login program.

Any thoughts anyone ?

As I say, if I run any other console app, say Midnight commanded, launched by in.telnetd as the login program, we have a correct display :)

I am using xinetd as the superserver btw, as I need the additional options it has.

Cheers in advance :)
