PiCore USB Boot Issues
« on: March 17, 2022, 05:24:18 AM »
I have booted piCore from the USB stick instead of mmcblk device. This had a number of issues from no ssh to no backup. I managed to extend the second partition but that's the most I could do.

I've installed both 13 and the hidden 14.x version.

It seems like its a usb problem somehow?


Code: [Select]
filetool.sh -b
didn't work, I have to do this every time I reboot:
Code: [Select]
tce-load -i /mnt/sda2/optional/openssh.tcz
# populate sshd_config
sudo mkdir -p /var/lib/sshd
sudo /usr/local/sbin/sshd

No more headless installation and configuration. Not being able to backup sucks too, I have to manually mount and install tcz.

piCore runs perfectly fine from USB.   You need to give the kernel time to populate USB devices before boot.  Increase the value of waitusb on the command line.
