I'd like to thank your, but neither inefficient xrandr nor missing eDE solve my HP G62 laptop brightness annoyance.

Otherwise Tiny Core, Hungarian "kis mag", Latin "parvum semen" appeal to me very much.

While trying, i need a tcz, for creating vfat (mkfs.vfat) -Having hard time finding that ?

does it excist ?


I'm trying to build Qt-Creator on Tiny Core 5.4.  I've followed the instructions found here:
with updates to the scripts to use newer versions of the sources (qt-everywhere-opensource-src-5.3.2.tar.gz and qt-creator-opensource-src-3.2.1.tar.gz).

After building, Qt Creator won't run without "-noload Welcome" on the command line.  Which is fine.  But the keyboard doesn't work.

Output in the terminal looks like this:
Code: [Select]
tc@box:~/build/qt-creator-opensource-src-3.2.1/bin$ ./qtcreator.sh -noload Welcome
xkbcommon: ERROR: failed to add default include path auto
Qt: Failed to create XKB context!
Use QT_XKB_CONFIG_ROOT environmental variable to provide an additional search path, add ':' as separator to provide several search paths and/or make sure that XKB configuration data directory contains recent enough contents, to update please see http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xkeyboard-config/ .

Does anyone know how to solve the keyboard issue?

Extension requests / Re: VirtualBox Guest Additions
« Last post by dspence on Today at 07:50:03 AM »
Yes, this would be nice to have this.  :)

I recently got parts of the VirtualBox Guest Additions (for VirtualBox 4.3.12) working in Tiny Core 5.4, but lost it after a reboot because I didn't know what files and links to keep in order to make an extension.

The parts of the guest additions I am interested in are the shared folders (to access Windows drives from the Tiny Core guest), and the shared clipboard.  Both of these features worked by running VBoxLinuxAdditions.run from the CD, plus running some scripts, though there were some other issues along the way.

The mouse works well anyway with my current Tiny Core guest.  It only started working properly after installing Xorg.

I'm not working on the Guest Additions right now.  It should be possible to get some useful parts of it working quite easily, though.

Thanks, I have pm'd him. 
I have downloaded the book and will start reading it, but there was a reason I was looking at CorePlus. (not going to be web access where I was going to be trying to install it)  Spending a few days house sitting with no internet.

If you want to get his attention, I suggest you pm him.

Rather than get hung up on the window managers included with CorePlus, you might take a look at the window managers in the repo.

The only place I see the owner of that distro, is on this forum. Posting here I hope will get his attention (he was on already today, once), as well as maybe get answers to other questions (what are the included windowmanagers in CorePlus, because I might still use it if it has what I am looking for).

We do not support forked projects here.
You need to use the forked project's support channels.
Remasters / Remixes - Unofficial / Is Core17 dead?
« Last post by LinuxUser42 on Today at 06:27:57 AM »
I've wanted to get a better understanding of Linux for a long time.  A lot of the distro's I find easy to use and I find myself forgetting commands that I don't use for a long time, so I thought something like the build yourself ones (LFS, Gentoo, Tiny Core, etc), might force me out of my comfort zone.
Eventually I would like to play with these on my PI's, but for now I was going to use an old netbook,  I found Core17, which intrigued me as I have liked the look and idea of Enlightenment and would like to try to learn to use it as well.  (my normal distro's tend to use LXDE as it is lightweight yet had enough features)  I started on the Tiny Core page, but I couldn't find what are the 7 window managers included with CorePlus so I kept looking. (figure if I can't find that, documentation may be lacking elsewhere). 
I made a USB stick with Core17 and let it choose its mirror but no software shows up and I don't see a way to select a list of mirrors.  Is it no longer and links to dead mirrors or how can one choose the mirror to build the software?

while following http://www.berryterminal.com/doku.php/berryboot/adding_custom_distributions , I get stuck here
