No discussion about the FAQ page? geez....
I edited Q3 to include updated information about the partition numbers of extended and logical partitions. I have not tested all these to verify them, but I noticed that all of the comments below in fact agree with eachother, and tell a complete story. My summary says everything that the rest says, without the questions and confusion.
I nominate the rest of the details for deletion, or maybe heavy summarizing to credit the people who submitted the data.
In fact, I think I'm going to do this. If it upsets anyone, revert my most recent change.
Fixed. Thanks. HenryNe
from: Q34. How to set coLinux's video screen size? 80x25 is too small ! Edit
Searching this site gives various suggestions like adding "vga=132x44" to the command line (so it gets sent to the Linux you are running) another suggestion is to put an entry in your configuration file like this: video=cofb:800x600x32 (that might only work for version "Version 0.7.1, kernel 2.6.11 with framebuffer (cofb)" but no other).
None of those do anything - still a puny screen :((
Still another is this:
apt-get install fbset
fbset -xres 640 -yres 400 -depth 32
open /dev/fb0: No such device or address
Still no joy!
There is a four year old discussion of this here (find with google cache): http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.phpforum_id=37489&max_rows=25&style=nested&viewmonth=200411 (link dad?)
A slightly newer discussion here: http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/message.php?msg_id=12577799 (link dad?)
Some support for this is here: Version 0.7.1, kernel 2.6.11 with framebuffer (cofb): A case study from N. Lucas http://www.henrynestler.com/colinux/testing/nlucas-2.6.11/20050805/
HenryNe: Nobody has merged cofb into current source. For me, I'm missing the non graphic nt-console.
from: Q38. How to build a device driver in coLinux? Edit
The output of dmesg is "Linux version 2.6.22-co-0.7.2 (hn@hn-dt) (gcc version 4.1.2)". And I have download the stable-colinux-20071117.tar.gz. I'm trying to test some examples of "Linux Device Driver 3rd". But when I make the program, the compiler will return error for there is no directory as "/usr/src/linux-2.6.22-co-0.7.2-obj" which should have the kernel header files. I don't think there is a "make modules_install" of coLinux. If I want to try some ram file system deiver, for example, how could I make it?
I could not find how to start up nfs server. Is it possible? Thanks.
Colinux v0.6.4 does not run on "Microsoft Virtual Machine" Edit
When trying to compile a VC++ project (VS 2008) with CoLinux v0.6.4 in a Virtual Machine Session (WXP SP3) does run.
Attached you will find the Console screenshots and the .xml / .ini files
The command executed is:
colinux-daemon.exe -c colinux.xml
And the content of colinux.xml is:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <colinux> <block_device index="0" path="\DosDevices\W:\colinux\coLinux_rootfs_512.img" enabled="true" /> <block_device index="1" path="\DosDevices\W:\colinux\swap_512m.img" enabled="true" /> <block_device index="2" path="\DosDevices\W:\colinux\hmi_sl_oa.img" enabled="true" /> <cofs_device index="0" type="flat" alias="hda1" path="\DosDevices\W:\work" enabled="true" /> <bootparams>root=/dev/cobd0 mem=160M</bootparams> <image path="vmlinux-188.8.131.52-colinux-vanilla" /> <memory size="160" /> <network index="0" type="tap" /> </colinux>
