TCE Bugs / oss.tcz missing dep ?
« Last post by Pats on August 17, 2019, 11:57:30 PM »
coreplus , TC10.0
In  Apps size tab of  oss.tcz  , this error message is flashed : 

** oss-modules-4.19.10-tinycore.tcz Error , not found. ** .

Is it pointing to Meta ext *original.modules.xxx.xxx.xxx.tcz* ? Meta ext is too big !  Or is it already a known error ? TC10.0

TCB Bugs / Re: filetool.sh TC 10.1 trivial display bug: trailing slash in output
« Last post by Rich on August 17, 2019, 11:26:22 PM »
Hi jazzbiker
I did a little digging and I think I figured out some of the reasons for the larger executables. The default linker script changed.
From:
elf_i386.xc      # Combines and sorts relocatable sections.
To:
elf_i386.xce    # Combines and sorts relocatable sections with a separate code segment.

The formula used to compute gap sizes between code and data changed.

This is the result if you specify the  elf_i386.xbn  script (Mix code & data on same page; don't align data):
Code: [Select]
tc@E310:~/rotdash$ gcc  -march=i486 -mtune=i686 -Os -pipe -Wall rotdash.c -o rotdash -Wl,-T/usr/local/lib/ldscripts/elf_i386.xbn
tc@E310:~/rotdash$ ls -l rotdash
-rwxr-xr-x 1 tc staff 4704 Aug 18 01:48 rotdash
tc@E310:~/rotdash$ sstrip rotdash
tc@E310:~/rotdash$ ls -l rotdash

Tiny Core on Virtual Machines / Re: ALSA problems in PCem

Hi thl04, Can it be due to your h/w specs ?

 Some quotes from the PCem forum :

...Think with that spec PC, the lag is because of it.

..PCem seems to run very well with a CPU running at 4 Ghz or more. I ran system tests on the i7 8750H and i7 9750H CPUs, and the latter is much more PCem-friendly, while the former could run most 166 MMX tasks well.

I did try that sequence already but gave it another shot with Core-9.0.iso and a fresh configuration in PCem v15.
  • Steps 1 and 2 went well.
  • I skipped step 3.
  • For step 4, I verified that sound was not muted on my host OS.
  • Step 5 produced the "No soundcards found" error that I've already posted above.  I tried step 5 again as sudo alsactl init with the same result.
  • Tried step 6 anyway and got a series of error messages that began with

Raspberry Pi / Re: Steps to connect a Pi Zero W to wifi
« Last post by vinceASPECT on August 17, 2019, 11:49:17 AM »
Hello

This would always be useful to know.....and to know that it will work across new upcoming TCL Rasp Pi versions not just Pi Core 9....

i did not see the exact minimal steps LIST .....committed to the wiki....... as the OP said he would do.....

http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/wiki:start

It would be helpful to have the "exact correct  steps list" for connecting a Pi ZERO w to wi fi ....put into the wiki and (tested)

where is the "exact steps list" that works  (Tested)...?

thx

Tiny Core on Virtual Machines / Re: ALSA problems in PCem
« Last post by Dacicus on August 17, 2019, 11:06:18 AM »
Thank you.  Further testing leads me to believe that the problem is with PCem's emulation of the Ensoniq AudioPCI (ES1371).  VMware apparently emulates the same type of card, and I can get sound working with ALSA using the "install alsa-config.tcz followed by alsa.tcz" process.

I did some tests in PCem based on your links.  Using oss_alsa.tcz for ALSA emulation did get sound working, but it is spotty in the target programs.

Based on your third link, I tried alsaconf.  Had to go back to version 5.x in order to find the extension; I used Core-5.1.iso for testing.  alsaconf did find the card, and it generated this modprobe.conf:
Code: [Select]
# /etc/modprobe.conf: Modprobe config file.
#
# --- BEGIN: Generated by ALSACONF, do not edit. ---
# --- ALSACONF version 1.0.27.1 ---
alias snd-card-0 snd-ens1371
alias sound-slot-0 snd-ens1371
# --- END: Generated by ALSACONF, do not edit. ---

However, setup seems to have failed at the /usr/local/etc/init.d/alsasound step.  I tried the command manually and got:
Code: [Select]
amixer: Mixer attach default error: No such file or directory
Something went wrong, sound was not set up.  Since we are using the results of the last run of alsaconf make sure that your /etc/modprobe.conf file was properly backed up or has not been corrupted.  You need to run alsaconf again or restore a working /etc/modprobe.conf.

alsactl init and aplay -l again gave the message about no soundcard being found.

The result of modprobe -r snd_ens1371 followed by modprobe snd_ens1371 had one extra line but still resulted in a failure:
Code: [Select]
snd_ens1371 0000:00:13.0: found PCI INT A -> IRQ 9
snd_ens1371 0000:00:13.0: setting latency timer to 64
AC'97 0 access is not valid [0x0], removing mixer.
snd_ens1371: probe of 0000:00:13.0 failed with error -5

I'll take this up with the PCem folks.

Works Perfectly  (Aug 19,  Pi Zero W,  piCore 9.0.3).

MANY THANKS   DrRob for this excellent work  -  saved me hours,  no doubt.     Really appreciate people providing this class of advice.
