TinyCore on VirtualBox 6.1.0 install problem
« on: December 28, 2019, 03:12:36 PM »
Instead of the simple menu depicted on newbielink:http://www.tinycorelinux.net/install.html [nonactive] (item 6), as I start the new machine I just get (after the timeout or after pressing any other key) a command line starting with Shell>.
It seems that startup.nsh is not being executed.

Hi pstrg,

Can you tell us which iso file you use? You can paste link where you download it.

I tried to Install VirtualBox 6.1.0 in TC 10 x86_64 but without success.

Then I tested
http://www.tinycorelinux.net/10.x/x86/release/CorePlus-current.iso
with Qemu 3.1.0 and it boot but extensions are not loaded.
Probably because udevd has problem with finding CD-ROM drive.

After boot I see shell, and I wanted to install extension
Code: [Select]
tce-boot -iw mc but it seems that network connection doesn't work.

I tried to mount CD-ROM
Code: [Select]
sudo mount /mnt/sr0
cd /mnt/sr0
ls
but the dictionary is empty.

Then I tried
http://www.tinycorelinux.net/9.x/x86/release/Core-9.0.iso
with Qemu 3.1.0 and it boots, I can install extension with
Code: [Select]
tce-boot -iw mc and I can see what is inside /mnt/sr0
