So maybe we need this firmware in our firmware package?
Or would it be better to continue rebuilding an older driver for use in the newer kernels?


Better to try the current 3.14.y driver. Can you provide the missing firmware? If so, I add it to firmware-rtlwifi.tcz

Rebuilt rtl8088eu driver from 3.12.9 source, wireless-3.13.6-piCore+.tcz updated in repo. All other items unchanged. Please try.

Hi bmarkus.

It seems like support for this wifi is broken again in the 3.14 versions of piCore and piCorePlayer.
I noticed that MREngmand who has been providing drivers for this wifi in the raspberry forum, stated that the new version was working, but it needed a firmware. It needs rtl8188eufw.bin which is not included in our rtlfirmware package.

General TC Talk / Things you can do with corepure64
« Last post by coreplayer2 on April 24, 2014, 08:41:58 PM »
You can accomplish many tasks with tinycore, you can probably perform these tasks just as well or better using corepure64..  As a regular desktop you can easily complete excel spreadsheets, compile source code, watch streamed movies from your media server, browse the web..




what do you do with corepure64??

Corepure64 / Re: CorePure-64 missing cfdisk and grub
« Last post by coreplayer2 on April 24, 2014, 07:30:58 PM »
Grub2 is available in the repo

It's a little like the chicken before the egg.. but there are various ways to install
one method is you can install using the coreplus iso then download corepure64.gz  (or rootfs64.gz, modules64.gz) and  vmlinuz64.   create the grub config entries and reboot

More info about the destination HDD would be advantageous to assist further.. (like is the drive empty? are there other partitions, etc etc..)



Another recommended very useful tool to use at the command line is  " tce-ab "
Code: [Select]
tce-ab - Tiny Core Extension: Application Browser

S)earch P)rovides K)eywords or Q)uit:
tc@box:~$
then enter " s " for search
Code: [Select]
Enter starting chars of desired extension, e.g. abi: grub

tce - Tiny Core Extension browser
