Hello everyone,
first: the registration is shitty.  4!! Captures is way too much...

Topic:
I wanna install Python on my TinyCore. I saw this Post (topic=14920.0 (http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php?topic=14920.0)) that i may need the package 'python-distribute' but i get the error 'python-distribute.tcz not found!'. Same with other packages. Ping to google.com works fine so i dont know what i need to do now ....
Can some tell me what i do wrong?

Hi peter555
Click the  Apps  icon on the bottom of the screen. It's the one with the  blue down arrow  on it. When in the  Apps  utility,
click   Apps->Cloud(Remote)->Browse. After the list of extensions appears, type  python  into the search bar and hit enter.
That will list all the python packages currently available for the version of Tinycore you are running. I presume you are
running 32 bit Tinycore version 9?

Ahh sorry, my bad.
I use the version piCore 9.0.1

I guess the Raspberry Pi version has no gui if yes tell me please where i can find them.
Is there a way about the terminal to install the package? I already downloaded it manully but i cont figure our how i can install it.

Hi peter555
Use  tce-ab  to search for extensions.  Use  tce-load  to install them. I think Pi has a GUI extension called  TC.tcz.

Thanks.
My problem was (i guess) that i forgot to expand my partition and i downloaded the wrong file.
I used tce-ab to find the package name and tce-load to install it. (tce-load -iw python3.6)
Now i got another problem, so i will close this thread now and start a new one.

BTW: piCore comes with microPython installed. It is used during the boot process to load extensions I believe!
