Thank you for sharing! I started using it too, and I'm very happy with the result!

The kernel failed to boot. Adding the "debug" option (press tab on one of the entries, type it in, press enter) may give some more output.

No, you don't need linux-kernel-sources-env to compile kernel modules - it was a way of making things easier, but no longer works due to changes in linux-5.x

This will prepare the kernel source:
Code: [Select]
$ cd linux-5.10.3
$ make mrproper
$ cp ../config-5.10.3-tinycore64 .config
$ make oldconfig
$ make prepare
$ make modules_prepare

I think you need to rebuild the initrd. Your kernel version  string changed from  to

The sorter script created a bunch of kernel related extensions (filesystems-$KERNEL.tcz, alsa-modules-$KERNEL, etc.).
The $KERNEL part of those extension names should be Copy all of them to your  tce/optional  directory.
Code: [Select]
cp *- /mnt/sdb1/tce/optional
The sorter script also created base_modules.tgz. Copy that file into your home directory (/home/tc/).
Then continue with the instructions in the attached file. Pay close attention to syntax, especially those single periods like
the one after the  find  command and near the  depmod  command.

When you've finished with the attached file, you will have a  tinycoreRT1.gz  file in your  boot  directory. Make sure you
adjust the real time entry in your  extlinux.conf  file to point to  tinycoreRT1.gz.
Hi cparke
Are you running x86 (32 bit) by any chance? Also, are you running TC 12.x?

Hi steveo
... Thank you for explaining how this area of TC works. ...
Just wanted to clarify, all Linux kernels rely on a config file to determine which features are enabled. How distros
configure their kernels is one of the ways they differentiate themselves.

Hey Juanito
No, I did not try lsusb in any of my testing.
I was only using lshw and dmesg.
Now that I have tried lsusb I can see the Lynksys with all the helpful data as well.
Thanx for that.

Hey Rich
Thank you for explaining how this area of TC works.
I now know where to look to answer my own questions regarding device support.
To compile or not to compile ...

For me the only difference between a workable distro and one that is not is helpful forums like this.
Hi Rich,

Seems you're right!  The plugins are there.

However, seems they're not loading due to missing dependencies that I don't think are available in any of the TC extensions. 

Here's the error messages we get at the console when starting up Remmina:
Code: [Select]
Failed to load plugin: /usr/local/lib/remmina/plugins/remmina-plugin-vnc.so.
Error: libvncclient.so.0.0.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Failed to load plugin: /usr/local/lib/remmina/plugins/remmina-plugin-rdp.so.
Error: libfreerdp-core.so.1.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

So how do we find out what extension, if any has libvncclient.so.0.0.0 and libfreerdp-core.so.1.1

I checked and libvncserver.tcz and freerdp2.tcz don't have files.

Hi Juanito,

Thanks for getting back so quick.

So when you say that I can prepare the kernel source in the usual way, and give me a link to the source files, I get a bit confused. 

in the past I would
step 1: install linux-kernel-sources-env.tcz (which I'm not finding in the available tcz downloads for 12.0)
step 2: run  linux-kernel-sources-env.sh
                 which would basically go off and get three files. and unpacks them
                 and puts them in to the proper spot.
step 3: go have fun trying to build a simple driver.

So are you telling me that I do not need to install linux-kernel-sources-env.tcz to build driver modules?
