So it looks like there is a new kernel -- not sure when that happened, because I did a sync and upgrade yesterday and all was up to date.  Even after updating the kernel-lts.devel package, I still get the same error.

So what did I "forget" this time?

bash-4.4# ls /boot
config_64-4.14.48  kernel            System_64.map-4.14.48
grub           kernel-4.14.48-NuTyX-lts

OK I manage to reproduce: /etc/bashrc is needed ... It fails without. Another minor issue, you do:

Code: [Select]
suinstead of
Code: [Select]
su -
Anyway start all over again will be very fast, (i took me less then 5 minutes) and don't delete any bash config file. Instead comment the line:
PROMPT_COMMAND=prompt_command in /etc/bashrc

I replaced /etc/bashrc and it made no difference.  I have been using sudo not su.

Is there a way to get rid of that string that hovers in the upper right of the bash terminal window?  It is annoying.  I am not sure I understand why it is there or is needed.

Even after setting a root password and logging in as "su" (not "su -") and dotting in the /etc/bashrc script, the build still fails.  This does not surprise me, given that /etc/bashrc only does some tputs (which is probably causing the problem with the string appearing that scrambles the scrollback) and sets  a few non-make, non-vbox related variables.

How would bashrc impact make(1) or vbox?  What am I  not understanding?  (It is possible I am not seeing something obvious.)

Also, the exact means of logging in as root won't typically have much of an impact either.  I use sudo, su, and other means of becoming root on various systems and I've not noticed any particular variation in behavior from one to another.

You need to look at those tput calls, btw.  I don't think they are doing what you think they do.   Maybe a French v. English difference?  Idk.

And do EXACTLY like in the tuto (video)

Your fix corrected the shell issue, thanks.

Now, back to the GA question.  Which version of VirtualBox are you running?  This may be important because there are some issues with recent kernels.  Your response should be either 5.1.x or 5.2.x.  Thanks again.

As I told you before, as long your prompt look like this:
Code: [Select]
bash-4.4# which means that your environment variables are not properly sets, GA will not compile ( I was able to reproduce this issue).

Please tell me which VBox version you are using.  There is nothing in the shell environment that affects the GA build.   I made the change you requested, and the GA's still do not build!

You can find easily all the packages version on http://www.nutyx.org/en/packages.

I use Virtualbox 5.2.12

Are you using 5.1.12 on both the host AND the guest?   Which OS's?

I am running CentOS as my VBox host with VBox 5.1.12.   So there is some other difference as to why I can't get GA's to compile.

I'll have a test box in a few days or so; maybe I can try some things then unless you have any more suggestions.  Not having the GA's makes evaluation of NuTyX difficult because the clipboard, shared file systems, and other VBox features do not work without them which slows me down a bit.  There's always FTP I guess...

Hello
My suggestion would be: Make a video of your all process so I can point out what you maybe wrong.

Thanks a lot for keep trying anyway. I'm shure it's  a small detail we miss.

You could also setup an ssh server and connect via ssh

Hi Bozonius Hi Thierry
I think there is a mismatch between the version of virtualbox you use.
Bozonius says  he uses 5.1.12 (are you sure because your test show that you are uncompressing GA 5.2.12) and you Thierry 5.2.12 on both sides.
Normally you must use the same level on both the host and the guest if you have virtualbox 5.1.12 the GA must would be 5.1.12. To complicate the Nutyx kernel has the modules of  virtualbox 5.2.12 compile in.

if you use 5.1.12 the best way is to upgrade Virtualbox to 5.2.12 on the host

Best regards Daniel
