mirror/no network connection
« on: July 03, 2015, 10:00:56 AM »
So I just got 6.1.x installed on my raspberry pi but im not able to get a network connection now it boots to command line instead of a gui but i see it adding my dns info before it does. How do I start the gui in tinycore? Sorry for such a basic question I usually use debian but tinycore is the only option that makes sense for the raspberry pi in the linux world that I have found. I have the raspberry pi B (not 2)

Just to clarify, for some reason I can't find or use any mirrors due to lack of internet connection for some reason it seems.

Hi Bela,

I have the same issue. Installed image is piCore-6.1-X.zip, timestamped 24-Jun-2015 08:18

Same issue here.

I'm getting the same output as @bill thomson except, of course, a different IP address. Mine is valid.

Network works. I can ping websites.

Did anyone find a fix for this?

I've tried changing repos by editing /opt/tecmirror but no joy!

Thanks.
