CorePlus 64bit
« on: January 18, 2017, 10:22:29 AM »
I see CorePlus (106MB), but when I traverse to Index of /tinycorelinux/7.x/x86_64/release/
I do not see CorePlus for x86_64.

is it missing in release or not required, if people tend to frugal x86_64 tc.

I't important to know exactly your desired installation, because tinycore64 could be simply a matter of adapting your current installation.

these options are available

There is an http://tinycorelinux.net/7.x/x86_64/release/TinyCorePure64-current.iso  if that's what you're looking for?

boot to it and download tc-install extension and any other extensions you desire.

Note: Extensions for a corepure64 (64 bit kernel and 64 bit user-space applications) installation requires a dedicated tce extensions directory, especially if co-located on a drive alongside a 32bit tinycore or tinycore64 installations.  It's repository is separate from the x86 and x86_64 (tinycore 32bit kernel and 32bit user-space applications & tinycore64 64 bit kernel and 32 bit user-space applications) combined repo.

Or If you already have a tinycore frugal (default) install, then
for a 64 bit Kernel with 32bit user-space applications you need only to add
vmlinuz64 &
to your boot directory and
add an option to your boot config file to use the above

Depending on your hardware you may need to download hardware specific kernel x86_64 module extensions

it's all fairly straight forward and easy  :D
Good luck
