I haven't tried it, but you will probably have some trouble getting VirtualBox installed. As far as I can see there's no MyDSL extension, and there was no package for Debian Woody (the version of Debian with which DSL is compatible).

This means that you'll have to build it from source, and the dependency list  (https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux%20build%20instructions) indicates that this will require first compiling a number of dependencies which are also not already available for DSL. QT 4 is likely to be difficult for one thing.

Whether it is possible or not will depend on whether one of the dependencies requires a later kernel than the 2.4.31 release used in DSL. If so, your only option might be to try to find an earlier version of VirtualBox that works with earlier releases of the problem dependency.

 I am interested in installing DSL as my Host, and then running other Guest systems in VirtualBox..

Probably looking at 3 to 5 Windows systems and a MAC and a few Test Linux Distros.

it is a laptop i5, HD4000 Gpu, 8GB Ram.

Has anyone ever tried to do this? Problems? Suggestions?

I'm afraid DSL would be on life support at best, but indeed it isn't likely to be moving away from 32bit support for one thing.

The current issue of Distro Watch Weekly has some topics including if 32-bit prematurely obsoleted or not.


Since I can not offer any money or time to assist you at this time, thank you for keeping 32 bit alive.

The original intent of DSL was to fit on a credit card sized CD.  There are now credit card DVDs that hold at least 330MB. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD_card

Perhaps DSL can continue with the 50MB CD card limit while DSL-N can fork to a DSL-DVD with a 330MB limit (and being only 95MB currently, there's plenty of room for expansion).

There doesn't look to be an extension for it in the MyDSL respository. I'm not sure whether DSL-N was compatible with a version of Debian, but if so you can install the package for that Debian release from the Debian package archive. Otherwise you'll have to compile from the sorce code on the project's website (http://siag.nu/).
