I'm an old microcore user, and I'm used to the old 3.x version. Now, here's the thing, I can follow all the steps in the wiki and get a 3.x version remastered, it works fine. Problem is, if I follow the same steps for 4.x, I just can't get it to work for the life of me. I am willing to admit I may have gotten it wrong.
In my remastered microcore, I have added two tcz's and have them in my onboot.lst. That is fine, I have an edited startup script, that works as well, no problems. I can chuck "embed" into my isolinux.cfg, that's fine.
What I don't get is why I just cannot manage to do the same for 4.x? What has changed that I'm not understanding? Also, would it not be a good idea to perhaps update the wiki to 4.x, considering most the information is 3.x or even earlier based?
Also, why does it assume that if I am remastering a core, that I'm doing it inside tinycore? Hell no, I'm running Lubuntu. I'm trying to build a core up for work. I don't like the abundance of information on wiki that only applies if you are actually using TinyCore. I'm not, not am I interested. I tried booting up CorePlus from a CD, and then tried ezremaster, it didn't work.
My problem ends up being something about the ram, and then none of my extra extensions work. I also don't get why there is guides on combining gz files using cat, when the extensions aren't even in gz format. I mean, wouldn't it just be a hell of a better idea if you just put the tcz files in gz format to begin with? You know? What exactly is the purpose of the non-standard tcz / tce format? I mean, what benefit is there?
Don't get me wrong, this is a bloody good project, it's good for having nice small cores, which is what I want, I have a 9mb ISO which can boot and get onto the internet, with a fancy little ftpput command. Great stuff! This project is so needed in a world dominated by Windows and Dos based boot disks that don't even work anyways, and are bloated. God.
