piCore 5.2 released
« on: February 26, 2014, 06:30:44 AM »
Team Tiny Core is pleased to announce the availability of piCore 5.2, the Raspberry Pi port of Tiny Core Linux. It is an independent system architected by Robert Shingledecker and now developed by a small team of developers with strong community support.

Tiny Core Linux is not a traditional distribution but a toolkit to create your own customized system. It offers not only flexibility, small footprint but a very recent kernel and set of applications making it ideal for custom systems, appliances as well as to learn Linux, matching Raspberry Pi perfectly. It is running entirely in RAM. There is no installation in conventional terms; extensions mounted read only, after reboot the same clean system is available. Base raw SD card image with CLI version is only 21.5 Mbyte including RPi boot loader, firmware and support files.

Changes from 5.1:
  • kernel updated to 3.13.3
  • updated RPi firmware
  • useBusybox in tc-functions changed to eliminate interference with certain installed GNU apps
  • rebuildfstab: do not replace fstab entries for a device that does not have "Added by TC" on the line
  • init: increase the default inode count
  • ondemand: don't list extensions under subdirs in onboot maintenance
  • Busybox split suid/nosuid for better security
  • ldd: Added quotes for binaries with spaces in their names
  • /etc/services: modified to suit rpcbind rather than portmap
  • tc-functions: Removed the getpasswd stars to allow backspace to work
  • added accelerated arm-mem library to spead-up memcmp, memcpy, memmove & memset
  • added ntpd BusyBox applet
  • getTime.sh now using ntpd to get time
  • preinstalled packages updated
  • frame buffer driver replaced with accelerated fbturbo

Images with preinstalled SSH for headless operation and with GUI also available at

Can you post all 3.13.3 modules?   or possibly make a extension with the real time clock modules.

I need rtc_ds1307.ko

I'm running this version, and I've just noticed that not all of my extensions are working properly.

The loop device is mounted. and If I look in the directory /tmp/tcloop/,,,,,   I can see the files of the extension.   But when I look at the root file system, the files are not there. 

Never ran into this before, so I'm not sure how to troubleshoot.

Is it 5.2 or 5.2.2?
