TCB Talk / Re: how to start mysql service via command in startup
« Last post by Rich on October 20, 2014, 08:35:13 PM »
Hi manit123
Go to  /etc/init.d/services  and take a look inside the  mysql  file to see what the start command looks like. Then add it to  bootlocal.sh.

TCB Talk / how to start mysql service via command in startup
« Last post by manit123 on October 20, 2014, 08:25:34 PM »
hi ,
I want to add entry in startup file so that 'mysql' service does not have to be explicitly selected from system tools > control panel > services .
How can I do that ?

Remasters / Remixes - Unofficial / Re: Odd remastering problem
« Last post by centralware on October 20, 2014, 07:41:52 PM »
@Rich: Good call.  When a created image fails within the VM, it fails on hardware as well with an error as described.  Oddly enough, on a VIA 800A with 512MB, it throws "initrd too large to handle."  The largest image is 24.7MB.

@Curaga: Under normal circumstances I'd agree with your assessment...  except...  this is intermittent.  I run the script build.sh which I've created and the generated remastering of core.gz works perfectly.  If I run it again (the old core.gz being deleted and rebuilt from scratch) the remastered core.gz has a good chance of failing with the aforementioned error.

Based on how things act, I'm starting to think it's a combination of a couple different ingredients.
Code: [Select]
########################
# Repackage CORE IMAGE #
################################################################################
    pack="/tftp/images/tc/BASE.gz"
    if [ -f $pack ]; then rm $pack; fi
    echo -n "${RED}Rebuilding CORE${NORMAL} "
    cd $curdir/$src; sync; sync;
    find | cpio -o -H newc | gzip -2 > $pack; sync; sync;
    echo "${GREEN}Done.${NORMAL}"
    cd ..

    echo "${RED}Compressing CORE${NORMAL} "
    advdef -z4 $pack
    sync; sync;
################################################################################
I added sync before and after writes just as a precaution as the host machine is also running TCL with 3GB RAM and zero swap.
find) This should be pretty solid
cpio+gzip) If the output file from two compression algo's were ODD in file size (possibly due to seeding...) would this not throw a wrench in the mix?  It's just a theory at the moment; we'll see what turns up.

Hi Possum
The Linux kernel is written in C. There's a C compiler available, just install compiletc.tcz.
A lot of what makes Tinycore what it is is done through scripts written in Ash. That is interpreted, not compiled.
There are no manuals documenting code. You have to be able to read and understand the code, and if you are lucky, there will be
the occasional comment mixed in with the code.
If you are interested in learning more about how Tinycore works, there is a very good book available for download:

Hi
This is my first post here, please be forgiving as I am new to under the hood linux.

I want to read and understand the code that makes Tiny Core works. Then write a compiler for it ( or read and understand open source compiler code)

Then write an IDE... ( or read and understand open source IDE code)

This is a hobby I just want to see how far I can go and learn..

I presume I can download the Tiny Core code. But where are the manuals that explain what the code means. Heck I don't even know what language Tiny Core is written in.

All and every bit of advice on my fun project appreciated.

dCore Imported Extensions / Firefox freedesktop .desktop file
« Last post by Jason W on October 20, 2014, 04:29:20 PM »
I have made a custom .desktop file that will be imported with firefox so it shows up in all DE's and WM's.  Previously, it was only able to be shown in Unity in Ubuntu, what was causing that has been removed.

this means an symlink to stubs-64.h should be ok for x64?
Actually I wasn't suggesting that. I don't know what the correct fix is.
