[MOVED] TinyCore in VirtualMachine Guest Environment
« on: June 12, 2012, 06:28:02 AM »
Hello all,

Why? Using TinyCore to get a better feel of the linux environment without changing base OS.

Question: Has anyone had experience with installing the VirtualBox Guest Additions in Tiny Core? I have yet to find a thread on this. There are bugs posted for TinyCore on virtualbox, but I assume that the VBox Additions would solve these problems if installed.

Here are some of the bugs (can't post external links) Goto virtualbox home site and search tinycore bugs.

I have attempted install and without DKMS it is more difficult to install the VBox A's.

Hi infono
You are welcome. If you have further problems, be sure to list which version of Tinycore you are running, what
steps you took to install virtualbox, what error messages you received, etc..... so that someone familiar with
the program can help you.
