Could you please add the md5 checksums for vmlinuz and vmlinuz64 in the distributions_files folder?

Greetings to TC Team for TC4.0
On /src directory in Release repository I cannot found anymore kernel .config and patches to recompile it, as for toolchain.
They are moved on another place?

Regards,
Enzo

Not sure if this affects anyone else but the path to my hard drive is no longer:
/mnt/hdc1
Instead it has been renamed:
/mnt/sda1

I'll have to modify some scripts I wrote up as a result. It also meant my wallpaper suddenly disappearing because the symbolic links were no longer the same.

Hi

When I try to install to HDD I get using Install (MultiCore TCI) an error message:

SYSLINUX (. . .)
Could not find kernel image: /boot/bzImage

I have also tried the "manual" way (with grub) but also doesn't boot from HDD

If I install TC3.8.4 to HDD it works just fine :)

Can someone help? Thanks in advance :)

I am writing from TCL 4.0 now. I reused an old backup file named optional and that way
I got access to Firefox with old bookarks and VLC and so on. Especially I love that Fluff
still works.

But I fail to get sound going. I had OSS working in the old 3.xx was it 3.72 or something.

Ah sorry. Reading the FAQ once again and retrying the description how to remove already installed
I got OSS sound working again but it still says something is wrong with the ALSA so that is typical
for my inability to read and follow instructions.

Anyway thanks for that it works on ntfs much appreciated.

Am I right that it still need this on the menu.lst for grub4dos ?

/tce/boot/ntfs-3g.gz
or else it fail to set the hdd one do a frugal boot from as read write. I got a beep saying that I can not write to it
when I did not have that one added in the initrd line. I am using the standard tinycore iso

I am also having the same problem as egolipo. How can we tell it to use vmlinuz instead of Bzimage?
I am new at this stuff.

Yes, we're now libata only. Other distros have made a similar transition, we were one of the last.

Hi

I am using TCL 3.4 now on a platform with very little memory (56MB, Transmetta@533MHz)
I am doing some developmet using QTcreator within a VM and then upload my code to the platform above.

I am concerned with memory usage more than HDD size (my 2GB compact flash is far from being full).

What should I expect in term of memory impact and CPU usage by upgrading to TCL 4.0 ?

Thanks for your advices.

Best regards
