Micro Core / Re: Install PHP 5.6 and/or PHP 7.0?
« Last post by mikeschinkel on Today at 10:39:00 AM »
Thanks for the answer.

Hmm.  I think I may be in over my head on this.  That is still not clear enough for me to grok it.

I may have to give up and just stick with Ubuntu.

Note that I already had both gtk2 and gtk3 on my box because of other apps.

The usermod and groupmod commands can be imported to change user's user and group id.

I'm afraid it's unlikely you will get more battery under Linux than Windows. It's a well known fact that notebook and driver manufacturers only test and care about Windows; even if you enabled every power saving measure under Linux, it would likely still use more power than Windows, because the drivers do not have as much knowledge.

IOW, moving to Linux would give you a safer and maybe faster system, using less RAM and less disk space, but it doesn't help battery life.

I have said netbook with with a Swiss (CH) keyboard layout.
I'm looking for a slim Linux distro for it.

These are the specs:

CPU: Intel Celeron N3050 (1.6 GHz)
RAM: 2GB DDR3L SDRAM
Display: 1366 x 768
Videocard: Intel HD Graphics
WLAN: IEEE 802.11b/g/n
Storage: 32 GB SDD (25 GB for Windows, 7 GB free)
Webcam: Acer CrystalEye
Mouse: Touchpad
Cooling: none (really not necessary with that CPU and storage)
Connections: USB 3.0, USB 2.0, HDMI, Headset 3.5mm, SD-Card
Operating System: Windows 10 64-Bit

I'm satisfied with the way the Notebook works with the preinstalled Windows 10, but given the fact, that i want to used it mainly for writing and researching in the internet, i feel like running it on Windows 10 64-Bit is a waste of ressources. Currently I get about 7-8 hours out of its battery, only using a word processor and the display at its lowest brightnes. Multitasking isn't really a good idea iwth that machine, but yet again, that was never my true intention with it. Still, when I'm browsing in the internet via firefox and switch between pages and Libreoffice (or any other word processor instead, i guess), it's using a lot of CPU.
I've never used any Linux distro, but I've wanted to try it for a long time. I'm also willing to put some time and effort into it.
I've created a Recovery Drive and a System Image of my AA1, so as long as i don't tinker with my hardware, its system should be full revoerable, or am I wrong?

Would it be possible to equip my netbook with a Tiny Core Linux distribution which allows me to access all the hardware listed above, by either single boot or multiboot?
My main goal is to increase battery life, while still being able to use basic functions.
In particular, these are the things i want to be able to do with it:

high priority:
- use a word processor
- connect to WLAN
- browse the internet
- use my touchpad
- change display brightness
- use USB 3.0, USB 2.0, and SD card reader
- use 1366 x 768 resolution
- use Swiss keyboard layout

low priority:
- use webcam
- use Headset connector (3.5mm jack) or at least headphones

What do you think? Am I on the right place here?
Would Tiny Core, or any other slim Linux distro for that matter, make any difference to battery life?
And how would internet browsing look like? Would it eat the same amount of ressources like on windows 10, and therefore depend on webcontent only and not on the OS it uses?
Or, on the opposite side, would Tiny Core turn my netbook in a waste of hardware?

I'll be glad to read your thoughts on this!

Greetings

Corepure64 / Re: CorePure64 v6.3 mcookie not found [SOLVED]
« Last post by Juanito on Today at 01:44:53 AM »
I'd guess at one of two things:

* you did not create a separate tce folder (for example tce64) for 64-bit extensions.
* you are trying to use Xvesa (32-bit only) rather than Xorg-7.7

What does this give "tce-status -i | grep X"?

Corepure64 / Re: CorePure64 v6.3 mcookie not found [SOLVED]
« Last post by sebus on Today at 01:16:11 AM »
Sadly does not work. x64 installed to HD (via x86 tc-install) and menu entry changed as per:

http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php?topic=17939.0

But x64 will never get to GUI, as it errors "mcookie not found"
