netnomad, have you tried wl-modules-3.0.21-tinycore.tcz?  See info file for blacklist requirements.

hi roberts,

i tried wl-modules-3.0.21-tinycore.tcz in my onboot.lst and succeeded.

i used following blacklist-bootcodes:
blacklist=snd_usb_audio
blacklist=ssb
blacklist=b43

but the further boot-messages are not so nice:
at the beginning there are still these messages i posted with missing b44...

later after loading the wl-module over the onboot.lst all drivers are initiated without further problems.

is this the only way to solve this with this error messages:
b44: Unknown symbol ssb_device_is_enabled (err 0)
b44: Unknown symbol ssb_pcicore_dev_irqvecs_enable (err 0)
b44: Unknown symbol ssb_bus_may_powerdown (err 0)

IIRC this was fixed after the previous kernel release too, and I forgot to add it to sorter.sh. b44 is a wired card, please move ssb to base again Robert.

Strictly speaking this might be seen as an extension request, but I guess we could do with a new linux-headers-3.0.21-tinycore.tcz as the other new kernel modules have now been added to the 4.x repository.

hats usually takes care of that, I either don't care about external modules or just use the full source. Ping him on irc :)

Placing core.gz and vmlinuz in it's own boot directory under sda1/tce/boot, also move extlinux directory and it's contents to sda1/boot  with minor edits to extlinux.conf to point to /tce/boot proved a success,  core 4.4 boots    (no wbar, but am sure I'll figure that out a lot quicker than fixing the path to ldlinux.sys)

This points to 1) inconsistencies in your Syslinux config and 2) changes in the default install/search folders for TC.  Forcing the search folder or fully aligning with the current patterns would have likely solved this.

If you move the extlinux/ directory to sda1:tce/boot/ then run 'extlinux -u /mnt/sda1/tce/boot/extlinux/' then update config file references appropriately, this will solve your issue.  You can also watch the return value of the installer extlinux by doing something like 'echo $?' immediately afterwards.  0 is success.

I've been getting some practice in updating more frugal systems from tc4.1 to tc4.4rc1 lately.    So far the most reliable method has been to make backups of filetool.lst and onboot.lst, then load up the latest tc-install and use that tool to install to an existing partition (using  install boot loader option) and copy over new tcz's.  After a reboot delete the existing boot directory and append the new filetool and onboot files as necessary from the old backed up versions and reboot.

I forgot something, run the tc-update and/or AppsAudit updates.
Also from 4.2  just realised these files needed updating.  Since they are not in a backup only a permanent store,  deleted them and rebooted.
.setbackground
.profile
.xsession

Not sure if I missed any other files?

Things are looking up now !

The Set button has only ever been active when the tcedir is on /tmp and the initial status bar displaying tcedir is red. No other purpose.
