Bug#659023: O: bochs -- IA-32 PC emulator
I intend to orphan the bochs package. I've uploaded what I had pending
in my git tree for bochs 2.4.6 to unstable, and the pending changes I
had for the new upstream release 2.5.1 to experimental, because the
latter gets random freezes at least on the wxWidgets GUI, and I can't
be bothered to track it down (I'll file a bug against that version
after the upload).
Ideally the person adopting this package should have C++ and low-level
programming knowledge, including x86 assembler.
The package description is:
Bochs is a highly portable free IA-32 (x86) PC emulator written in C++, that
runs on most popular platforms. It includes emulation of the Intel x86 CPU,
common I/O devices, and a custom BIOS.
Bochs is capable of running most operating systems inside the emulation
including GNU, GNU/Linux, *BSD, FreeDOS, MSDOS and Windows 95/NT.
