Package: dosemu
Severity: important

No COM port support in latest version package dosemu-1.2.1 with linux
kernel 2.6.x. Problem solved with dosemu version 1.3.2 available from
www.dosemu.org. No such package available for Debian. Other bugs: newer
versions of dosemu install virtuel C:\> directory in the home directory
of the user, not in /var/lib/dosemu. So dosemu doesn't need to run suid
root any more. Dosemu-freedos package and Xfonts-dosemu package should be 
included in dosemu package to ease installation for beginners.

We've not heard back from you, so I'm closing this bug.  Feel free to
reopen and explain why.
