Tiny Core Extensions > TCE Tips & Tricks

I ran into a problem starting DosBox and then getting the arrows keys to work on my old IBM ThinkPad.

When I tried to start DosBox nothing happened, so I opened terminal and ran dosbox from the command-line.

That returned the following error "error while loading shared libraries: libSDL_sound-1.0.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

Searching the forum I found a post from marco which in part said "As it turns out the missing dependencies are: 'sdl-sound.tcz', 'libasound.tcz', and 'libvorbis.tcz'."

I loaded sdl-sound.tcz, libasound.tcz, libvorbis.tcz and DosBox opened.

The next problem I encountered was the arrow keys were not working.

The fix for this was to set usecancodes to false in the dosbox-0.74.conf file.

Afterwards I was able to install Windows 3.1 with sound, video and joy stick drivers.

Now my grandson can play some old school dos and windows games.

Tiny Core Linux Rocks!!!

Thanks for the HOWTO.

I don't suppose you've tested that setup with Red Storm Rising or F19 Stealth Fighter?

Try this for screen shots w/o the terminal window showing:

--- Code: ---( screenshot.sh & ) ; exit
--- End code ---

I wanted to package dbgl time ago but did not succeed  :P

Thanks, gunny. Your tips really helped. I can now use the great DOS word processor--Norton Textra!


Thanks for the screenshot tip!  :)

I added the following to .jwmrc-keys
--- Code: newbielink:javascript:void(0); [nonactive] ---<Key mask="A" key="p">exec:screenshot.sh</Key>
--- End code ---
