/usr/local/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-keyboard.conf
Code: [Select]
Section "InputClass"
Identifier       "Keyboard Defaults"
MatchIsKeyboard  "yes"
        Option           "xkb_model" "pc105"
Option           "XkbLayout"   "de"
#Option           "XkbVariant"  "nodeadkeys"
Option           "XkbOptions"  "terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp"
EndSection


Looks good, but unfortunately it does not have effect (??)

Shame on me, my only excusion is, i'm so new to tcl: i forgot to include /usr/local/share/ to the backup. Now it works! :D

BUT: I still have some questions re the boot process:

1) When the "showapps" ends, i still see the error:

Code: [Select]
xset: unable to open display: ""
2) After there is the msg re starting fluxbox i see:

Code: [Select]
Setting keymap to us. Done
Both seem to be ininfluent for the further functioning: German keyboard is there and screen resolution 1024x576 as well ... (?)

You should not be adding the whole /usr/local/share to the backup.
Just add the files you have changed or added.

But i'd like to have the machine/os password protected...
Chapter 10 Core book:
 - bootcode 'secure' to set password at boot
 - bootcode 'protect' to encrypt backup file
 - can also try xvesa bootcode to set resolution directly

I did it that way, but erroneously a added another user, i'd like to delete now. But the tools i'm aware of (like usermod or userdel) seem to not exist in TCL. What would be the commandline tool to delete a user and those to change the name of a user?

Thanks a lot in advance!!!

As a kind of conclusion: With the help of all you here i got TinyCoreLinux successfully running on a Dell (Netbook) Inspiron Mini 10, 1 gig ram, 16 gig internal sata flash disk (originally it came with ubuntu pre-installed). I'm using the fluxbox flavour of tcl. Safe some still missing finetuning due to my very limited knowledge all is fine and i'm happy with.

Thanks to you all for your patience while helping me out!

A propos, now that's almost done with this mini Dell, would you like to see my starting screen or it's unnecessary fancy for you pro's?
