Is there a 3.0 version of firewall-2.6.29.1-tinycore.tcz? Perhaps  the name changed for 3.0?

Enjoying 3.0 alpha. Great work TC team!!!!

Best regards,

sci_fi

Yes, the new name is netfilter-xxx. Note that iptables might need an update, not sure if the 2.x iptables runs fine with the new kernel.

Pure idle curiosity: How did the team pick a kernel version?

Early plans were either .33 or .34. After .33 was stable, we tested it and the patchlevels, but faced oopses until 33.3.

Boot errors in Tiny Core 3.0 Alpha 2 (not present in Alpha 1 or 2.10 or 2.11).
I have TC installed in an ext2 sd card, from which I boot. After the EXTLINUX greetings, usual boot messages, when loading the  Tiny Core Extension I get  error messages and after a while the system boots.
Things go very fast, so I have only been able to read something like:

/etc/init.d/rcS : line 460 : usleep : text file busy
repeated about 20 times
after taht, sometimes it says 'done' and continues booting, while other times I get another error message before the 'done' and booting.

After rebooting with syslog enabled, I've found the following messages:

daemon.err udevd-work[594] exec of program '/sbin/modprobe' failed 
daemon.err udevd-work[593] exec of program '/sbin/modprobe' failed 
.... up to 10 times total (with different numbers inside the brackets), and then:

daemon.err udevd-work[671] exec of program '/bin/sh' failed 
daemon.err udevd[93] can not read '/etc/udev/rules.d/56-lsusb.rules'
daemon.err udevd[93] can not read '/etc/udev/rules.d/64-md-raid.rules'

and then a lot of more info that seems normal to me (messages about mounting things from tce/optional)

I've booted several more times, and the syslog seems to vary:
* sometimes the daemon.err udevd-work[xxx] exec of program '/sbin/modprobe' failed are missing
* sometimes  the daemon.err udevd[93] can not read '/etc/udev/rules.d/56-lsusb.rules' or daemon.err udevd[93] can not read '/etc/udev/rules.d/64-md-raid.rules' is missing

Hope it helps

Replaced bzImage and tinycore.gz from alpha2 with a copy from alpha1 and all the errors are gone. Therefore I think there is clearly a problem with alpha2

Ah, I was under the impression that only Broadcom wireless required ssb. Will add in the base for the next alpha.
