I run Windows XP SP2 with coLinux v. 0.6.2 installed. I'd like to run my debian distribution with a user account. I am able to boot my favorite distro with the command line colinux-daemon.exe -c config.xml, but the low-level network driver(winpcap?) doesn't get turned on. So I try the better solution by installing coLinux as a service. No luck here :( The service gets started just fine. However, if I run colinux-console-nt.exe or colinux-console-fltk.exe, I still need administrator account to boot the distro. If I run each executable with a user account, the only thing that happens is a screen that pops up for about 300ms.
So my questions are...
How do I run a network-enabled CoLinux without using an admin account?
Is there any debugging/logging options yet for these executables?
Thanks for your help!
After update TAP-Win32 driver to version 8.3 you can run colinux-daemon without admin rights.
An other way is to install a start batch for service start ("net start colinux...") and run this with the ms-tool runas.
