Title: Virutalbox in TC
Post by: da1k on June 24, 2017, 03:54:54 AM
Hello,

I am keen on Tiny Core since long time and now it's time to make something useful with it :) Basically what I need to do is to start my PC with full screen Virtualbox Manager, choose one of mine VM and ... it's done. It looks that TC will be perfect for these (it's small, fast and it doesn't take too much resources). So, for now I have TC+ installed but I can't find Virtualbox in extensions. Is it possible to add Virtualbox? Is it possible to do what I would like to do? :)


regards,
d

Hi da1k
Have you thought using dCore?

I played around with compiling virtualbox for a couple of days, but it's something of a mess to compile and, once compiled, it doesn't want to run.

You could try qemu?

Hello,

Thanks for answers. I thought it will be easier, but it's not. I found alternative solution. I installed SparkyLinux MiniGUI (Debian + OpenBox) and it's fine. It is not so compact like TC but it's Debian so it's easy with Virtualbox. Thank you.

If you don't mind using "free as in beer" software there is VMware player. Works just fine, with 3d video, sound, etc.

I'm wondering if compiling virtualbox without security hardening would help, since it would anyway be protected by being wrapped up in a squashfs.
