What processors is piCore compiled for?
« on: July 24, 2022, 05:36:27 AM »
Hello

is there a "piCORE 64 bit" version of TCL operating system available for arm cpu's......?

i was thinking that the regular "piCORE" for arm cpu's is compiled to armv6 and 32 bit?

If so, Where do we get it please?


what arm architecture is it compiled to please?  (armv8?)

thx
C

Hi vinceASPECT
I've split your post into its own topic.

32 bit piCore for ARMv6, ARMv7, and ARMv7l can be found here:
http://tinycorelinux.net/13.x/armv6/releases/RPi/
http://tinycorelinux.net/13.x/armv7/releases/RPi/
http://tinycorelinux.net/13.x/armv7l/releases/RPi/

64 bit piCore for ARMv8 can be found here:
http://tinycorelinux.net/13.x/aarch64/releases/RPi/

Oh Rich,

Many many thanks.

  Ridiculous that i could not shift up levels
of the "releases File structure" and see that those distro's for arm exist there.

Well, my Linux skills are essentially non existent.

Also, i did not actually "know" the distro's existed.

It is good to see Arm7 somehow.

many thanks Rich,
C

I want to write an article for wikipedia about architectures and hardware that TC support nowadays.
The major quastion is "Do you still support i486, i586? Can you give me a list of all ARM devices that works with TC."

only raspberry pi is supported by piCore

The packages would run on nearly any armv6/7/8 processor, however the boot loader and kernel modules would all need to be remastered for a specific board.

piCore14/piCore64 would require a >5.15.x kernel

The Core toolchain is compiled for i486.

@neonix, here is a link to a forum thread where we discovered/investigated what TC did/didn't run on(with respect to 486/586/686).

heLLO fORUM,

"pICORE " computer operating system.....IS tINYCORE FOR rASPEBRRY PI computers

So those computers use several ARM processors types (cores)........................so the compilation type for "picore" will be some  version of ARM processor

"Armv6"  version of Picore  computer Operating system.........for example

Thx.

What about Orange Pi, Banana Pi, Mango Pi, and other clones?
There is also dCore Arm V7hf section with Allwinner-A10, GK802 and Allwinner-A20?

What is armv7hf?

BTW. Raspberry Pi Pico is not Linux compatible.

Every arm board has different bootLoader requirements.  This requires someone to port the OS.

 Nobody has ever stepped up to do it.

I have piCore 32 running on Odroid U3 (Exynos 4412), which is armv7hf. 
As you indicate, it is needed:
- change the bootloader, in this case uboot
- and the kernel, in this case 5.4 upstream

piCore32 runs quite well on such device

read the above and remembered this topic : 'Linux on an 8-bit micro?' - https://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,24898.msg158432.html#msg158432  ::) :P 8)
that is all.

didn't want to start another new thread about raspberry pi but thought others should/would-like to be made aware:

Hi gadget42
Big deal. Just like gcc, you can specify the target:
Code: [Select]
clang++ --target=armv6-unknown-linux-gnueabihf -Wall -o t t.cc
If you add some context to your posts, they won't read
like the front page of a supermarket tabloid.
