TCE Corepure64 / Re: NVIDIA driver on TCE Corepure64 9.x
« Last post by coreplayer2 on Today at 02:46:59 PM »
Currently I've not been able to successfully build the latest Nvidia driver for corepure64.  Additionally, older driver versions have to be built on machines with a supported Nvidia Card installed.

So at present I have only prepared the Nvidia v390.77 driver extension for TinyCore-9.0 x86  which works flawlessly with my Nvidia 1060 powered Notebook.  Actually I've been holding off submitting it untill I figured out what's wrong with the Nvidia compiler for v390.77 x86_64 driver, unless someone asks for it

So the important question is: For which Nvidia card are you requiring a driver for?

Tiny Core on Virtual Machines / Installing Core as KVM Domain
« Last post by ikanpar1 on Today at 03:00:05 AM »
Hello, I'm trying to install core as a KVM domain. The host is CentOS 7.
I need console to be available during installation, not VNC because VNC port is blocked by default.
I tried the following:

Code: [Select]
root@kvmhost /tmp> ll
total 12948
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 13256704 Mar 19  2018 Core-current.iso

root@kvmhost /tmp> virt-install --network bridge:br0 --name testmachine --ram=128 --vcpus=1 --disk path=/var/lib/libvirt/images/testmachine.img,size=0.2 --nographics --location /tmp/Core-current.iso --extra-args "console=ttyS0"
WARNING  No operating system detected, VM performance may suffer. Specify an OS with --os-variant for optimal results.

Starting install...
ERROR    Could not find an installable distribution at '/tmp/Core-current.iso'

The location must be the root directory of an install tree.
See virt-install man page for various distro examples.
Domain installation does not appear to have been successful.
If it was, you can restart your domain by running:
  virsh --connect qemu:///system start diglett
otherwise, please restart your installation.

root@kvmhost /tmp> virt-install --network bridge:br0 --name testmachine --ram=128 --vcpus=1 --disk path=/var/lib/libvirt/images/testmachine.img,size=0.2 --nographics --cdrom /tmp/Core-current.iso --extra-args "console=ttyS0"
ERROR    --extra-args only work if specified with --location. See the man page for examples of using --location with CDROM media

Have anyone successfully install Core on KVM without VNC? Would you mind sharing the method.. Thanks a lot :)

CorePlus / Re: TinyCore Boots to a DOS Prompt
« Last post by mikezuccaburg on Today at 01:37:09 AM »

I cannot get it to boot to a GUI, no matter what option I select, though.  It goes through a couple of loading screens and then ends up at a DOS prompt lookalike that starts with "tc@box".  What is/are the next steps?  I can't find anything in the book.
After some investigating and an update to the Wiki i discovered an issue with the CorePlus*.ISO's boot config file which won't allow most options to boot to a desktop.   
The TinyCore-current and Tinycore-9.0.ISO's  work fine.

Try the attached corrected boot config file for USB drives with any CorePlus*.ISO installed.  The filename maybe different, the same file on your USB/boot/syslinux/syslinux.cfg  or USB/boot/extlinux/extlinux.cfg or something else, but don't be concerned about that just change the name of the corrected file to match and replace the existing file. 

Then reboot and all should be good

Hey Coreplayer2, for some reason the forum didn't update for me so I didn't see this post.  I will give this a shot as well.  Thanks

UPDATE:  I think the Linux USB writing app made it read-only.  It doesn't appear when inserted and won't allow me to edit the files.  I am going to do a long format of this drive with Lubuntu's disk utility and try again in the morning.

CorePlus / Re: TinyCore Boots to a DOS Prompt
« Last post by mikezuccaburg on Today at 01:35:55 AM »
Hey guys,

So I did the following:

 - Replaced every "cde" text in boot/isolinux/isolinux.cfg with "waitusb=5".  I still had the same problem of booting to that DOSalike after selecting a version of TinyCore.

 - Tried "dd" instead of core2usb.  It returns that isolinux.bin is missing or corrupt and to insert a boot disk.

 - Mounted the .iso with a virtual drive in Linux.  No installation GUI popped up.

If anyone has any ideas (that won't damage my hardware or wipe out my primary OS) I'm willing to try them!  Thanks again to all who have posted.

I should be able to take a look at the CorePlus iso in 3-4 days time

TCE Corepure64 / Re: NVIDIA driver on TCE Corepure64 9.x

Is there a tcz planned for Nvidia cards? I am glad that basic OpenGL works with Xorg-7.7-3d, but Shader Model 2.0 seems to be too much currently. :)

Hm hardware has developed, why do we still rely on the graphic vendors bullshit for applications, is my i7 processor really not fast enough to emulate a graphic card and basic shader model 2 capability from 2002, how can "GLX is not supported" be justified if all that I want to run is a simple program with some computationally cheap shaders on my i7? And do we really need a graphic card to make Xorg play videos and the window managers and apps GUI responsive on a i7 processor, or are they just bloated and programmed completely inefficient, mostly based on long outdated technology like X11 protocol? Do we need a complicated DX12 graphic driver just to get a projector attached to HDMI up and running, displaying the desktop (it fails in 80% of the cases I tried Linux distributions, only Windows supports general HDMI output it seems, no matter if graphic driver is installed or not)? Or do we really need a DX12-supporting graphics driver just to get a laptop monitor to output the desktop in a resolution that is not distorted?
All that seems to be too much for GNU/Linux@2018, can't we abandon GPU's for most desktop purposes and leave the gamer stuff for Windows users?
If graphic cards have completeley failed the open source community, why do we still suffer from the bad design decisions that developed around them, and no one went for alternatives for applications that do not demand full GPU-power, meaning everything that is not a 3D game?

Best regards,
Alligadi

CorePlus / Re: mei and mei_me modules in TCore.

Hello:
https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/misc-devices/mei/mei.txt
Thanks for taking the time to write back.

I was wondering why TCore was loading it and a while after I posted I realised that it was the kernel that loads it and it is not a distro packaging option, so to speak.   

If you check ...
So adding the following boot code should ...
Thanks for the know-how.  =-)

Best,

Programming & Scripting - Unofficial / Re: Easy Installation of extensions
« Last post by Rich on October 21, 2018, 06:10:47 AM »
Hi Inamatus
There are 2471 extensions in the repo ranging in size from a few K bytes to over 140Meg bytes, you couldn't
possibly need all of them. The repo is currently about 3.6Gig bytes. The repo is a shared resource and downloading
it in it's entirety is considered to be bad form. Besides all of the bandwidth you'll deprive others of, the site where
the repo is hosted may have limits on how much data per month can be downloaded, which you would also
seriously impact.

Please follow core-users advice and:
... just install what you need when you want it. :)
