Title: TinyCore Embedded in Windows
Post by: Diaz on September 19, 2022, 09:52:18 PM
So I have read that TinyCore is the successor to Damn Small Linux and that that project ended under acrimonious circumstances.  Hopefully I am not bringing up a sore subject by noting that the fact that you can launch Damn Small from a .bat file in Windows and it shares the internet connection and everything is pretty great.

I was wondering whether it's possible to do the same thing with TinyCore and if so whether it's possible to run BOINC on it also.  I tried to run BOINC on TC normally a couple of days ago and experienced some dependency issues that I wasn't able to resolve, but I am far from an expert or even a CS guy, so...

I can't seem to run it on Damn Small either - I guess DS is too outdated.

Yes, that was just bundled Qemu. You can run TC in any virtual machine. However nowadays Windows has that WSL thing, it should be faster, and perhaps a better option for running BOINC.
