Short read means corrupted source tar file.

HI:
May I ask this question here?

I installed VB in TCL 4.7,X and I can see the icon in wbar. But when I click on it nothing happens.
Did somebody install VB in TCL?

If yes please help
t(w)o be(ers) or not t(w)o be(ers) that is the question

Short read can also mean that your VM doesn't have enough RAM.

thank you - you might be right!

Here is what I have on my system where TCL is running and VB is installed:
686.2 MiB
AMD Athlon(tm) XP 1800+
32-bit
80.0 GB
Gallium 0.4 on softpipe

I will try it on another machine with 2GB of RAM

Hi sebus
I think you need to install:
linux-kernel-sources-env.tcz
Be sure to read the info file for instructions.

cliorx must be run from /mnt/sd1/tce/ondemand

Had to increase memory assigned to the VM, so /tmp had enough free space

This way headers do download & additions install (apart from X)



but mouse integration still does NOT work

sebus

edit:
Had to:
remove Xvesa.tcz from onboot.lst
tce-load -iw Xorg-7.X
as per this

That will make mouse integration work in THAT only seession, but not on reboot, as VBoxClient-all could not be added to .xinitrc as this file does NOT exist!

In fact VBoxClient-all does not exist anywhere on the system, so I have no idea what needs to be executed to get additions working again in another session

Some info about VBox additions here

You need to make an extension out of the guest additions.

Note that tinycore uses .xsession and .X.d rather than .xinitrc
