Title: Prebuilt SCE directory
Post by: Jason W on June 26, 2014, 04:23:39 PM
We have brought back the prebuilt SCE directory mainly due to the need for a ready made SCE to handle wireless.  Needing an ethernet connection today to download files to set up wireless is kind of like needing a dialup connection to download stuff to set up a high speed ethernet five years ago.  Location is below, and divided by repo:

Thanks.  I have tested them all with the wireless and wireless-3.8.13-tinycore extension loaded, at least with wpa_supplicant and a password, which is common.

For those who are coming from other distros or Windows, set up the appropriate dCore gz file to be booted into.  Then create a tce directory and copy the wireless extensions into it.  Trusty is used here, assuming a working grub2 is installed and sda2 is your partition that contains a linux filesystem:

mkdir /mnt/sda2/boot
mkdir -p /mnt/sda2/tce-trusty/sce
echo "wireless" > /mnt/sda2/tce-trusty/sceboot.lst
echo "wireless-KERNEL" >> /mnt/sda2/tce-trusty/sceboot.lst

Then download and copy both the wireless.sce and wireless-3.8.13-tinycore.sce into /mnt/sda2/tce-trusty/sce/tce-trusty/sce/

Download http://tinycorelinux.net/5.x/x86/release_candidates/ub-dCore-trusty/ub-dCore-trusty.gz
and place in /mnt/sda2/boot/

Download http://tinycorelinux.net/5.x/x86/release_candidates/ub-dCore-trusty/vmlinuz-trusty
and place in /mnt/sda2/boot/

Using grub2 as bootloader, add the below entry in the appropriate grub.cfg to boot it:

menuentry dCore-trusty {
insmod ext2
set root='hd0,msdos2'
linux /boot/vmlinuz-trusty quiet showapps tce=sda2/tce-trusty
initrd /boot/ub-dCore-trusty.gz
}

Then, you want to create a file /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf to contain:

network={
       ssid="YOUR_ESSID"
       psk="YOUR_PASSWORD"
}


Then add to your /opt/boolocal.sh or give the commands after boot:

wpa_supplicant -iwlan0 -Dwext -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
udhcpc -i wlan0

The bottom command assumes dhcp is the desired way to get an address.  Be sure to contain the below files in your backup:

etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
opt/bootlocal.sh

Hope this is helpful, let me know of any errors or questions.

The prebuilt SCE directory has moved to:

There is now also an sce directory in the release_candidates area for each dCore.  This is a symlink to the appropriate directory listed in the previous post.
