The easiest way to get this running on Ubuntu Linux is to use the aptitude system, type:
sudo apt-get install vice

The C64

Booch's picture

Back in the day, the C64 was my computer of choice. Sure, I played games on it. But, I really used it for mostly Productivity applications. I had a LOT of money invested in software/hardware, but I finally gave in and went with a DOS machine in 1993.

I was fortunate to find an emulator (C64S Miha Peternel) and instructions/software to build a simple cable and transfer ALL my C64 software over to .D64 format. Titles like Doodle!, The Print Shop and PS Companion, Newsroom, VideoByte digitizer, 1MB RAM expander, ALL the GEOS software, and much more.

I've even been able to find all the programs I _wished_ I had back in the 80's on the internet over the past 15 years or so. Cartridges as well!!

VICE for Windows is now my emulator of choice. It emulates most of Commodore's hardware.. 1531 mouse, 1571/1581 drives, expanded RAM, etc. A GREAT piece of software! I use v1.10 - I've found subsequent versions unstable... anyone else?

Anyway, I will ALWAYS have a C64!

One Click, Universal Protection: Implementing Centralized Security Policies on Linux Systems

As Linux continues to play an ever increasing role in corporate data centers and institutions, ensuring the integrity and protection of these systems must be a priority. With 60% of the world's websites and an increasing share of organization's mission-critical workloads running on Linux, failing to stop malware and other advanced threats on Linux can increasingly impact an organization's reputation and bottom line.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
