DoxBox in TC 4.1
« on: June 14, 2019, 03:53:24 AM »
Hello,

in past, I submited dosbox.tcz app to TC repository and it runs fine.  Downloading DosBox now it does not run.  DosBox  returns next error:   Can't init SDL.  No available video device.

What is the video device used by SDL and its .tcz modules?

Thank you.  :-)

The dosbox extension in the 4.x repo was submitted by yourself at the time of tc-3.x and the SDL extension has not changed since tc-3.x - i.e. nothing should have changed.

Booting original TC 4.1 runs DosBox fine.  Well, now must find for the error.  :-(

I don't know where is my error.  My script to rebuild tinycore.gz file is next:

Code: [Select]
#!/bin/sh -x
sudo chown -R root.root ./etc/*
sudo chown -R root.staff ./lib/*
sudo chown -R root.staff ./usr/local/tce.installed/*
sudo chown -R root.staff ./opt/*

Hi AlejandroPadrino
I have a TC4.1 install with a working dosbox extension.. If it helps, starting dosbox from the commandline produces the following:
Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ dosbox
DOSBox version 0.74
Copyright 2002-2010 DOSBox Team, published under GNU GPL.
---
ALSA lib conf.c:3601:(snd_config_update_r) Cannot access file /usr/local/share/alsa/alsa.conf

tc@box:~$

My  /home/tc/.dosbox/dosbox-0.74.conf  looks like this:
Code: [Select]
# This is the configurationfile for DOSBox 0.74. (Please use the latest version of DOSBox)
# Lines starting with a # are commentlines and are ignored by DOSBox.
# They are used to (briefly) document the effect of each option.

[sdl]
#       fullscreen: Start dosbox directly in fullscreen. (Press ALT-Enter to go back)
#       fulldouble: Use double buffering in fullscreen. It can reduce screen flickering, but it can also result in a slow DOSBox.
#   fullresolution: What resolution to use for fullscreen: original or fixed size (e.g. 1024x768).
#                     Using your monitor's native resolution with aspect=true might give the best results.
#                     If you end up with small window on a large screen, try an output different from surface.
# windowresolution: Scale the window to this size IF the output device supports hardware scaling.
#                     (output=surface does not!)
#           output: What video system to use for output.
#                   Possible values: surface, overlay.
#         autolock: Mouse will automatically lock, if you click on the screen. (Press CTRL-F10 to unlock)
#      sensitivity: Mouse sensitivity.
#      waitonerror: Wait before closing the console if dosbox has an error.
#         priority: Priority levels for dosbox. Second entry behind the comma is for when dosbox is not focused/minimized.
#                     pause is only valid for the second entry.
#                   Possible values: lowest, lower, normal, higher, highest, pause.
#       mapperfile: File used to load/save the key/event mappings from. Resetmapper only works with the defaul value.
#     usescancodes: Avoid usage of symkeys, might not work on all operating systems.

# captures: Directory where things like wave, midi, screenshot get captured.
#  memsize: Amount of memory DOSBox has in megabytes.
#             This value is best left at its default to avoid problems with some games,
#             though few games might require a higher value.
#             There is generally no speed advantage when raising this value.

language=
machine=svga_s3
captures=capture
memsize=16

[render]
# frameskip: How many frames DOSBox skips before drawing one.
#    aspect: Do aspect correction, if your output method doesn't support scaling this can slow things down!.
#    scaler: Scaler used to enlarge/enhance low resolution modes.
#              If 'forced' is appended, then the scaler will be used even if the result might not be desired.
#            Possible values: none, normal2x, normal3x, advmame2x, advmame3x, advinterp2x, advinterp3x, hq2x, hq3x, 2xsai, super2xsai, supereagle, tv2x, tv3x, rgb2x, rgb3x, scan2x, scan3x.

#            Possible values: auto, 386, 386_slow, 486_slow, pentium_slow, 386_prefetch.

#            Cycles can be set in 3 ways:
#              'auto'          tries to guess what a game needs.
#                              It usually works, but can fail for certain games.
#              'fixed #number' will set a fixed amount of cycles. This is what you usually need if 'auto' fails.
#                              (Example: fixed 4000).
#              'max'           will allocate as much cycles as your computer is able to handle.
#           
#            Possible values: auto, fixed, max.
#   cycleup: Amount of cycles to decrease/increase with keycombo.(CTRL-F11/CTRL-F12)
# cycledown: Setting it lower than 100 will be a percentage.

#            Possible values: 1024, 2048, 4096, 8192, 512, 256.
# prebuffer: How many milliseconds of data to keep on top of the blocksize.
