Make sure your monitor/TV is turned on and connected to your SBC before you apply power. The system will go into headless mode if no display is attached at boot.
HDMI audio output is not currently supported for these devices in the mainline Linux kernel, so it's not supported by Shedbuilt. Please use either the built-in stereo mini-jack or USB audio device for now.
The proper way to shut down the device is to exit the game launcher using the menu or Alt-f-x, then exit DOSBox by entering the command
exit. Issue the following command at the Bash command prompt to halt your device:
sudo shutdown -h now
The password for the default dosbox user is 'dosbox'.
Exit the game launcher using the menu or Alt-f-x, then exit DOSBox by entering the command 'exit' and, from the Bash command prompt, enter
alsamixer to adjust volume levels.
Exit the game launcher using the menu or Alt-f-x, then exit DOSBox by entering the command 'exit' and, from the Bash command prompt, type
crispy-doom to jump right into the shareware episode or
crispy-doom-setup to configure a single-player or multi-player game.
A single line in the 'dosbox' user's
.bash_profile configuration is used to start DOSBox on login. You can change this using vim or other installed editor:
Just find the line that begins with 'dosbox' and prepend the '#' character to it to comment it out.
Exit to the Bash command prompt as described above then, as the root user, edit the
/boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf file's arguments to the Linux kernel:
sudo vim /boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf
Find for the
video=HDMI-A-1:640x480@60 argument in the
append section and replace
640x480 with the standard resolution of your choice.
Autologin is configured using a simple systemd override configuration. Simply delete or move aside the override file from the Bash command prompt:
sudo rm /firstname.lastname@example.org/override.conf
Exit to the Bash command prompt as described above and use vim or other installed editor to edit the config file like so:
Lots of useful information, such as how to adjust emulation speed while in-game, can be found in the DOSBox wiki.
You've come to the right place! You can read more about Shedbuilt, its motivations and capabilities beginning in Chapter 1 of this site.
You should refer to the Shedbuilt OS documentation site for complete instructions for upgrading and installing new packages, but generally speaking you just need to run the following from the Bash command prompt:
sudo shedmake update-all sudo shedmake upgrade-all
This will refresh Shedbuilt's locally cached repositories and install any available updates.
You can 'su root' or use SSH to log in as root, which has the default password 'shedbuilt'.
