Boot options go on the kernel line.
Also, this is not a core issue.
General TC Talk / trying to boot to logfile
« Last post by teebolek on April 20, 2014, 02:40:55 PM »
In an effort to try to capture the boot process to the logfile I'm trying to specify the "syslog" bootcode.
My GRUB command list looks as follows:
kernel /boot/vmlinuz
initrd /boot/core.gz

but I'm getting

    Error 27: Unrecognized command

What am I doing wrong?
piCore Release Candidate Testing / piCore-5.3alpha2
« Last post by bmarkus on April 20, 2014, 09:50:05 AM »
Team Tiny Core is pleased to announce the availability of piCore-5.3alpha2:


* kernel updated to 3.14.1
* Raspberry Pi firmware updated to Apri14, 2014 version
* official BusyBox patches applied
* curaga's wget3 BusyBox patch applied, setting default timeout to 10s
* tce-load: Don't show an error when extension contains multiple modules
* tce-load: Use sudo when unmounting meta-extensions

Please note, alsa-modules-3.14.1-piCore+.tcz has no startup script to avoid conflicts with DACS, necessary modules must be loaded by user, including on-chip sound device.

Images with preinstalled SSH for headless operation and with GUI also available.

Updating previous versions on Raspberry Pi without removing SD card:

Download piCore-5.3alpha2-boot.tar.gz extract to a temporaray folder and overwrite content of /mnt/mmcblk0p1 after mounting it. It will overwrite custom boot options. If you have customied cmdline.txt on config.txt in the old system, do it again. Do not reboot if using wireless remote connection, otherwise you will loose connection due to incompatible kernel modules!

Next download kernel module tcz's from the repo matching new kernel version and reboot. You must have a new, updated system working.

Please note, there may be kernel module extensions which are not yet available in the repo.

Before modifying mmcblk01 content, it is adviced to make backup to a persistent device.

While you could edit the ISO directly, there is little opportunity to test the install first.  Probably the best way to accomplish this goal is to build tc the way you want it with all your apps loading etc etc on a HDD/USB  then use ezremaster extension to create an iso of your tested working installation.  That's how I create ISO's anyhow.

With ezremaster you you may choose to create an ISO with extension s inside the initrd or outside, there are many choices.  I normally use "inside initrd on boot" but  "outside initrd onboot" with the copy2fs flag set might work for you

We need to decide whether we should make these tcz packages as well, or continue just downloading the two different squeezelite versions (Trodes or Ralphys)?

No reason to keep 2 versions, there is not much changing right now.  I would just use Ralphy's version.   For those not resampling or wma, it does not get in the way.

I should probably get a Pi Running piCoreplayer.......so I can see all of the software versions.     I just like to do things myself.  plus I have a modded squeezelite to turn my amp off and on using GPIO......  I also have a realtime clock chip and digital clock display for an alarm clock.   Then there is push button control of the player using a python program and the LMS command line interface.   The extra modules I need means I have to stick with official piCore, or build my own kernel.

I'm running this version, and I've just noticed that not all of my extensions are working properly.

The loop device is mounted. and If I look in the directory /tmp/tcloop/,,,,,   I can see the files of the extension.   But when I look at the root file system, the files are not there. 

Never ran into this before, so I'm not sure how to troubleshoot.

Is it 5.2 or 5.2.2?

5.2 (Kernel 3.13.3)

I'm running TinyCore on a SurfacePro!

There's the bit of a hack to achieve it:

1. First, burn the "Generic x86/64 OpenElec diskimage" on a USB stick , using W32DiskImager.  I chose this img because it comes ready for GPT/EFI and it's using Syslinux instead of Grub.

2. Go to the USB drive, locate and replace the kernel/initrd ('INSTALLER') with Vmlinuz64/Core64.gz. Remember only 64bit version of your OS is currently supported on this kind of Hardware.

3. Locate the Syslinux.cfg inside the EFI/ directory and the root of the drive, and make the proper changes...

4. ???

5. Profit!

This guide should also work on a similar Hardware, like the Intel NUC, or present laptops with Windows8...
