    Hello, I installed rpix86 on a raspberry 3 computer but am getting duplicate text on my screen. Also, the text size is very small, barely readable. Bob

    Hi Robert, if you visit http://rpix86.patrickaalto.com/rfaq.html and look under "What command line parameters are there?" there are some options to adjust the screen height and width.

    Hi. I haven't touched this in months, but i got back to it this evening. Your instructions are great for downloading, unpacking, installing, and then running dos. But, when you reboot the pi to play later you don't need to download, unpack, and install - you just need to run it and it took me a good twenty minutes of playing around to figure out how to do that. In my case it was 2 commands cd dos (where dos was the name of the directory I installed this stuff in) ./rpix86 (it was the ./ that really had me stumped) then I had my C: prompt and I'm playing Kings Quest like I was 12 again. (i've written that on a bit of paper taped to my Pi for future refernce) Is there anyway to set things so that it just does that automatically when I turn it on? BTW, Im 43 and have had a computer since I was 6. I have some programming experience, some Linux experience and lots of hardware experience. I'm new to the Pi, but new tech does not scare me.

    Hi Doug, Great to hear you got Kings Quest running on your Pi! I too used to be a massive Sierra Online fan as a child; Space Quest 2 was one of the first games I ever owned. One problem I find with writing blog posts is they can become bloated too much information and turn readers off, so you have to be on the point. In the <strong>DOS setup</strong>, chapter it does say where the rpix86 application will be stored, how to access it. <blockquote>We are going to use a directory called /dos located in our pi home directory /home/pi/ to store our rpix86 related files. ... <code>cd ~/dos</code> </blockquote> And how to run rpix86. <blockquote> Now uncompress and run rpix86. ... <code>./rpix86</code> </blockquote> I do agree it is a little subtle and I did assume most people would pick up on the keywords, especially since both DOS and Linux terminal share a similar procedure.

    I'm not good at subtle. But, I did work it out in the end. and, I can see how you wouldn't want to make an already long tutorial longer, but one sentence inserted just before "Basics of DOS shell." would work, something like "the next time you want to run this simply type "cd dos" to change to the dos directory and "./rpix86" to start the emulator.

    Great article, very fascinating, thank you! My family owned a Tandy 1000 TL, and I had no idea it had such an interesting history. Tandy was kind of infamous for cloning things (my family also had a Tandyvision which was Intellivision with wood paneling, actually nicer looking IMO) and it was interesting but not surprising that they were able to take someone else's failed line that they were cloning (PCJr) and make it a successful product of their own (and becoming their own supported DOS gaming platform). Thanks for the article!

    Thanks for your comment Ryan, I am delighted you enjoyed the article. I am never sure when writing if I should supplement historical flavour text, so I am happy you appreciated it. You know the first computer we had at home was a Tandy 1000 HX, a compact machine that had limited upgrade capability. So as a kid I was envious of the 1000 TL that I would read about in the Tandy [our RadioShack] catalogues.

    Hi Ben, I would like to ask you: 1) how should I open tomcat via SSL 2) this structure how should be configured test.com/ - static site from nginx test.com/tomcat - tomcat manger (with working links) test.com/app - tomcat app (deployed at /app on tomcat) broken links are: 1) Open test.com/tomcat - fine 2) click the links in the this page point to test.com/manager/html but the working address is test.com/tomcat/manager/html - so I get 404 Not Found

    Hi Vasil, the question is out of the scope of this blog post and I am not an nginx expert. But it seems you are after an nginx alias. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/21399789

    I followed these steps and when I log in with test credentials, I can browse the entire server. My test user is not restricted to the ftp directory. While the user may not have write permission, it can still see everything. I need the user locked down to the ftp directory with no ability to browse anything but the contents of the one folder. Any ideas here?

    Hi Jarreau, you may need to re-read the article and confirm you followed all the steps correctly. What you're specifically wanting to do is covered and is known as the 'ChrootDirectory'.

    Thanks for this very informative article -- it was a good read 8). To make the Windows console even more Unix/Linux-like, you can integrate clink (https://mridgers.github.io/clink/) to get searchable command line history and tab autocompletion listing (among other enhancements): cmd.exe /k "C:\path\to\clink\clink.bat inject"
