486 PC emulator for the Raspberry Pi

Today’s post is how to turn your Raspberry Pi into an old 486 PC which is intended primarily as a vehicle to run old DOS games that no longer run on modern PCs and you do not want to use a separate emulator like DOSBox.

rpix86 emulates an Intel 80486 running at roughly 20Mhz with 640KB of real memory, 4MB of expanded memory, and 16MB of extended memory; Super VGA graphics supporting up to a 640×480 resolution and 256 colors; a SoundBlaster 2.0 sound card; and keyboard and two-button mouse support.
