questions for a microcore Guru
« on: September 21, 2013, 06:27:58 AM »
Hi

I was wondering if it would be possible for me to make piCorePlayer as a piCorePlayer.tcz?

Some issues that I was thinking might be difficult:

1. I have changed and compiled a new version of snd-bcm2835.ko so that it can play up to 192kHz via HDMI. Can I somehow "overwrite" the snd-bcm2835.ko which is included in the Alsa modules with my own version?

2. I have added/changed some text to the cmdline.txt and config.txt files. Are such changes allowed in a tcz?

3. The player are dependent upon the ALSA, WIFI and Dropbear packages, but I think that could be managed automatically.

1. Possible, but discouraged. The old module may already be loaded, and generally extensions should not step on each other's toes.
2. Nope. Those are the user's files, and on a different partition too.
3. Yes, you can have those as normal deps.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

What is the source of this change and it's status in the kernel tree?
