Darth Vader made an excellent point about moving this thread to another forum, and he made another good point in his P.S.
I absolutely agree.

I think that the spirit of Darth Vader's remark about BDFL is quite simple: before giving yourself (or accepting) a big title, you must actually do things that justify this title. But I see that this thread was moved into the Cucumber linux forum; I have nothing to do here anymore.

Tried in VMWare Workstation

I installed Cucumber 1.0 in VMWare Workstation as a guest with Slackware64-14.2 as host.
I did a full install.
The first time I installed I chose a GPT label and I could not get Grub to boot.
The second time I chose MBR and Grub booted successfully.
Networking worked for me after following the wiki.
Some icons are missing from the menu.
All mount points such as run, sys, etc., are shown on the XFCE4 Desktop.

I'm trying to install VMWare Tools in Cucumber guest, but that isn't working for me.
In contrast to Slackware, where the VMWare Tools ISO shows up under /run/media/$USER,
under Cucumber it doesn't show at all. Perhaps this is a limitation of VMWare, but it just works under
Slackware.

It occurred to me that perhaps VMWare Tools ISO was listed a block device.
Using blkid, I found the VMWare Tools ISO under /dev/sr0.
I was then able to install VMWare Tools.

After rebooting, I was unable to get Cucumber as a guest to use all the screen space using
VMWare's menu selection of "VM" and "Fit Guest Now".

In the above screenshot, you can see where I ran dmesg and there is a vmtoolsd segfault.

Hello chytraeus,

As you have figured out, Cucumber Linux doesn't handle mounts automatically.

I'm not quite sure what could be causing the problem with VMWare tools, and unfortunately I don't have any access to VMWare so I can't investigate it further. From the looks of it, it looks like there could be a dependency related issue (this is just a hunch though).

Have you considered giving open-vm-tools (https://sourceforge.net/projects/open-vm-tools/) a try?

No, I hadn't considered open-vm-tools. I am trying to load the same kernel modules that Slackware needs when running in VMWare. These are mptbase, mptscshih, mptspi. When I do

Code:
modprobe mptbase
it seems to succeed but when I do

Code:
lsmod grep -i mptbase
mptbase is not among the loaded modules.

When I have more time I will try Cucumber in VirtualBox.

There is a typo either in your post or your command, that should be:
Code:
lsmod | grep -i mptbase
Also the module names are always lower case, IIRC, so just:
Code:
lsmod | grep mptbase
would give the same result.

Yes, I forgot the pipe "|" in my reply, but I did type it in the terminal in Cucumber.

Gparted please

I spent several days trying cfdisk and fdisk but could never get the partitions correct. I was using the 64bit version in VirtualBox. The live version was nice but could never get an install done. If a new ISO comes out I will try again. VBox is free so if you try it out and get it to work a step by step tutorial with pictures would be welcome.

Hi jsalpha,

I'm sorry you're having trouble installing Cucumber Linux. There is a guide explaining how to do the manual partitioning and the rest of the installation at https://z5t1.com/cucumber/wiki/install:guide. If I get a chance, I will create a guide with pictures.
