Hi just to follow up.

The import script is working well for many packages, however, I also tried to import in order to Sound on the raspberry, without luck.

I imported alsa-utils and libasound, the tcz building went Well, everything seems to be ok, and tinycore seems to load alsa fine, But aplay Will not play, it complains about: Cannot access file /usr/local/share/alsa/alsa.conf.

So I Think that i Will wait until bmarkus have build a working alsa solution,

Now I can play back .wav through the 3.5 jack utput. Will check HDMI and first version of ALSA stack will be available in few days.

What is really a disappointment the complete lack of audio input on the board so you need USB sound modem to capture audio :( At least for me this is really annoying with the Pi.

Fantastic, looking forward to try that.
How did you do, did you use the import script?

No, I'm not using import script or any alian applications. ALSA stack is built from source on Pi.

Just for kicks, while testing my next iteration of the import suite, I imported moc on the Allwinner.
It works great. I am listening to my collection of mp3s while typing this is on the dwb browser.  8)

More progress on next iteration of the import suite.
Mplayer imports and plays videos smoothly with sound. Tested on my A10 set top box.
I can now play the two new videos that Curaga and Brian recently posted!  8)

Posting this from Allwinner A10 tablet running Tiny Core with wireless and using dwb browser.
All imports.

Updated import.tcz is now available for the Allwinner port.

Change log:
* import directory is now official and is auto created under the tcedir
* debian package master index is maintained via zsync for faster and much improved import results
* modules and libs are better support for extensions.
* reduced redundancy for scanning and downloading packages.
* Support for import scripts. Import scripts create or merge with startup script, .i.e., postinst
* import program supports -i and -b after testing, i.e., import without flags, test run from import directory, and then run import again with flags, only the copy/merge to tce/optional will occur.

See the new updated README for a sample use and discussion of import:
http://tinycorelinux.net/4.x/armv7/README.txt

These changes should provide for a much improved import experience from the vast Debian repository.

Updated import suite. Added the capability to do foreign imports.

You can use x86 Core with import suite to import for arm targets.
Example from x86 Core:

import nano armv7

Will create a nano directory under import directory containing the nano extension for armv7hf

This will be helpful for those needing to get wireless extensions on a device that does not have wired network support. As such needed extensions can be obtained from x86 machine while downloading and preparing the Core arm image.

REPOSTED import.tcz to fix a typo in rarely used applet not likely encountered at this early stage of development.

Hi
I just wanted to use the import script again on my raspberry, but now I can't locate it neither om the armv7 or the armv6 repro?

armv6: http://distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux/4.x/armv6/tcz/

Not supported on Rpi.
See: http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,14332.msg88383.html#msg88383
Major changes were done to import, now a script in the deb2sce suite. While still not a panacea, it will continue to improve providing an additional option to community built tczs.

Many enhancements have been made to deb2sce.tcz, aka import, namely meta packages and option flags.
See http://tinycorelinux.net/4.x/armv7/README/README-X-Desktop.txt and

I have imported rdesktop on my MK802+ ARM stick (TCL v5) and it works a treat. However I cannot get the -o option to add it to the ondemand menu and have to loadsce it each time I want to use it. Any suggestions on the manual method to accomplish this.

I also imported firefox, it loadsce ok but when I run it it says it can't be found. ???

Any suggestions gratefully received.
