power management:



  1. Download all files in the Git repository and the downloads. Unpack archives from downloads.
  2. Adjust paths in bochsrc.
  3. Launch bochs as root. Example sudo ~/bochs-2.5.1-build/bin/bochs (root for tuntap)
  4. Select "restore state". Point Bochs to the snapshot folder.
  5. If Bochs pauses, press c and enter to continue, in the terminal that Bochs was launched in.
  6. A SSH server on the VM should be available on the tun interface on IP User "tc", password "password123".


  • If the Bochs terminal input doesn't work, press the ALT key.
  • Don't change keyboard layout while Bochs is running
  • GDB is not installed in the given snapshot! Use tce-load -wi gdb.tcz to install it. Needs internet access, obviously.
  • If you reboot from the TinyCore ISO, the NE2000 driver needs manual modprobing. Use sudo modprobe ne io=0x300 irq=3. Obviously you need to change the IRQ and I/O addr if you change them in bochsrc.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
