RE: DeLi(cate) on VirtualBox
Hi delix :]
Nice to see You here.

The following thread might be useful for You if You'd like to test it on Your Toshiba 4000 directly without VirtualBox ...

reboot command might work too ...

You can lower the amount of RAM just for testing purposes, but I wouldn't reduce it for package building ... I would increase it to 512MB instead Smile The harddrive space for building might be insufficient too. I use 8GBs of harddrive space for my DeLi(cate) buildsystem.

I'm unsure if the VBox Guest Additions support our platform ... but anyway ... they are not needed at all. Bi-directional copying can be done with scp if You configure the VirtualBox network as attached to Bridged Adapter. I recommend You to select PCnet-FAST III (Am79C973) as Adapter Type.

Autodetection should work well for the previously mentioned PCnet-FAST III adapter emulation.

I thank You ... since the basic idea of the DeLi support resurrection came from Your head :]
Merry Christmas!
