Package: dosemu
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable


I installed dosemu as per the instructions (including downloading the
freedos tarball (whose location has changed)), and only ever get
"Sorry, there is no operating system". Needless to say, this is
somewhat frustrating and less than useful...

dosemu-freedos is recommended and README.Debian tell you to use it.

If you use the tarball then you are on your own. This is not a
bug in dosemu.
