Help! `startx' not working!
« on: August 17, 2009, 02:17:57 AM »
First off, I'm new to Tiny Core Linux, but I must say I'm impressed with what I've seen so far. I've encountered a small problem, however, that has arisen after integrating a number of extensions into the Microcore 2.2 iso. I integrated Xorg (not xvesa) and all its dependencies as well as XFCE and a couple of others (all along with their required dependencies). When I start the system, however, the first thing the terminal reads (after initial boot) is:

Code: [Select]
-sh: startx: not found
Needless to say, it will not start x, and remains stuck in the command line interface (which functions perfectly well, it just won't start the GUI). If it helps, I followed the instructions on the wiki for integrating the extensions into the iso.

Anyone know of any solutions?

Do you have the two core elements loaded / integrated to the iso (Xlibs.core.tczl and Xprogs.core.tczl)? They are needed for graphics with microcore, even with Xorg integrated.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

This is probably a silly question, but where do I download these two core elements? I can't find them in the TCZ repository (the web version at least).

ftp://ftp.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/tinycorelinux/2.x/release/core_elements/

Or, just under the directory you got the microcore iso from :)
