I just installed fresh ubuntu 12.04
I was succesfully compiled dosemu-1.4.0, unfortunately didn't work (it worked in ubuntu previous version). Looking to the ~/.dosemu/boot.log I found this weird messages:
MFS: dos_gen: path_to_ufs '/home/bambang/.dosemu/drives/c//command.com'
MFS: dos_fs: build_ufs_path result is '/home/bambang/.dosemu/drives/c/commndd.com'
Notice that command.com is mangled to commndd.com, very strange.
Searching in google I found the same error: http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=3440083&group_id=49784&atid=457447
A comment in above page suggest that the error is due to glibc which has been fixed here: http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lib.glibc.alpha/15674
ldd --version on my computer shows:
bambang@pa-o1-20:~$ ldd --version
ldd (Ubuntu EGLIBC 2.15-0ubuntu10) 2.15

How do I upgrade the glibc version?
