The project is long time abandoned but it can be still usable to rescue
data from old STACKER and DOUBLESPACE volumes.
The version dmsdos-0.9.2.3-pre2-alt2 is based on patches found at
2012-06-07 Fr. Br. George <george at altlinux.ru> 0.9.2.3-alt2
- Fix gcc4.6 build
2012-03-25 Fr. Br. George <george at altlinux.ru> 0.9.2.3-alt1
- Initial build
The modified version disables kernel code build which allows
to build userspace tools for volume dump.

New in this release (since dmsdos 0.9.2.0):
