Thanks , can you give an example maybe with pic ?
Btw the default scheme is gtk , you can change that to gleam from .Xdefaults file under home dir.
I'll fix this next time

Yes this is live cd and the size only 23.1 mb ,I just downloaded it from sf because worry for broken iso again.
Tested with qemu under windows xp,

I have no win7 to test so it's nice if you want to help :)
Just to make sure you also can test the parent tinycore 6 because if doesnt work then minux also.
Optional you also can test tinycore based like nanolinux and xiopan
if you have flashdrive you can test it with unetbootin(ok from my machine)
You also can put minux under your existing linux partition if the boot loader is grub
1. Put core.gz and vmlinuz to /boot
2. Create tce directory under root (/tce) and copy all from cde directory from the iso
3. Edit menu.lst from /boot/grub for example

Code: Select all

title SliTaz GNU/Linux 5.0 (Kernel vmlinuz-3.2.53-slitaz)
root (hd0,4)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-3.2.53-slitaz root=/dev/sda5 quiet

title MS
root (hd0,0)
chainloader +1 

title Minux
kernel /boot/vmlinuz tce=hda5
initrd /boot/core.gz


Change hda with your own.

Hi nimdays,

I loaded your ISO with VMware Player/Win10 and it ran.
But, I have to confess, the only reason I'd like to run Linux would be to test out the compatibility of my FB programming with Linux systems. But I am not sure that I could DL the binaries, click once or twice, and start trying it out. WIndows user do not know too much about repositories and other Linux stuff.

So, for this board's members and all others who are interested, why not integrate a pre-installed FB into a custom installation/distribution? Maybe a "full" install with the possibility to recompile the compiler itself?
At least, maybe speaking just for me, for all those who do not want to spend too much time doing - at first glance only! -"suspicious" things like "sudo --get anySoft --inspect --if_i_am_living" (just a joke) and resolve dependencies and such things it would be much easier to taste the smell of the Linux world.

Just install the new Version of FB with an IDE/editor, some words about compiling and where to find the new&selfmade binaries, and maybe, this might help to find some new Linux lovers, or, much better, real good friends :)
Doing so really would be appreciated. At least, by me.

Thanks for your feedback :)
Maybe i will put a separate iso with freebasic within plus a little tutorial,in the meantime you can load freebasic.tcz + binutils from package folder
I you want to try it with real hardware and have grub4dos you can make it multiboot but i dont know is this will work with win10

Hi nim!
3 years gone and i still don't have my favorite distro .
Yes to be honest from time to time i use wifi-slax just for testing wifi things.
Why I posting this .
Maybe i will have time this winter to try to make my own fork .
I use Beini / Xiaopan and both work well.
Both are based on tinyCore...

1 .So what you think or better what i need to know if i want make my own distro?
2. Is tinyCore simple enough for that job?
3 . Is there any good tutorial or something similar.

tinyCore is really small and fast and i like to use it more
of course with Free Basic or C maybe?

thanks!
and HNY..

Slax is a little bit cheat it was based on [Sla]ckware Linu[x] the mother of all Linux distros but Slax used Debian now.

I use Slackware from beginning Slax should be renamed in Dax :-)
