I´ve instaled dsl in a pen drive and after running dsl_base.bat all goes good until it finishes loading all devices, after that qemu stops working and thats the end of it.

Can anyone help me troubleshoot this?

I´m using dsl-4.4.10-embedded in a PNY 32Gb usb pendrive.

Just lost my nice long post to an accidental "page back", so here's the angry short version:

 SD booting, if your BIOS likes it (http://www.damnsmalllinux.org/wiki/usb_booting.html).

Add "firefox <Website URL> &" to "/home/dsl/.xinitrc".

If you want it maximised, the best that can be done is to work out the pixel size at maximised and use "-width" "-height". for 800x600 screen res., might be "firefox -width 795 -height 550 <website URL> &". Dillo uses "-g", eg. "dillo -g 795x550 <website URL> &".

You'll need a  persistent home directory, if you use a frugal install (http://www.damnsmalllinux.org/wiki/persistence.html).

Hi all,

Great idea, DSL!
I am wondering if DSL can be used to boot off SD card and programmed to go straight to a browser opening a specific website?

You are so kind to reply so fully and nicely.  Thank you.  I know for certain, from your description, it is WAY, WAY over my head ... and I am willing to admit that.  On that note, I will abandon the notion ... and thank you immensely.

BOINC isn't avalable as an extension in the MyDSL repository (or at least I couldn't find it), so you'll have to compile it from the source code.

There are instructions on compiling programs for DSL on the Wiki (http://www.damnsmalllinux.org/wiki/creating_a_compressed_extension_from_source.htm)

Whether you want to actually make a tar.gz extension or not will depend on whether you choose to do a Frugal or HDD install of DSL, or simply boot DSL from a CD and have it automatically load the required packages from the PC at boot-up. If you have a HDD install, you don't need to make the extension, and you can leave out the "--prefix=/opt/*" part of the configure command mentioned in the "configure" section of the Wiki page.

You should install the "compile-3.3.5.uci" extension in the MyDSL repository to set up a compiling environment.

Based on the information on the BOINC system requirements page (http://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/System_requirements), you should be able to compile BOINC itself after installing the compile-3.3.5.uci extension. If you want BOINC Manager, you'll also have to install Xfree86 from the MyDSL respository, and one of the gtk+ packages in the "testing" section of the respository. Installing OpenGL for the 3D graphics options will vary in complexity and impossibility depending on your graphics hardware.

Instructions on installing DSL to PCs, either as a Frugal or HDD install, are also on the Wiki.

Greetings.  Based on available categories, this looks like the place for this post.

Old Windows ME desktop. Celeron (coppermine) cpu, 512 MB RAM, 8GB HD, CD R/O drive, nonbootable USB 1.1 ports.

Need to conserve all the RAM and disk space as possible.  Only wish to run BOINC ... pretty much a dedicated intent. Can even boot off CD then run BOINC if best.

Thing is getting the help with everything.  Has to be step by step.  I am no experienced Linux person but can follow (distinct) instructions.

Any takers? Thank you in advance.
