Raspberry Pi / Re: Pi-Zero USB Ethernet doesn't work - adapter problem
« Last post by shaunm on February 18, 2018, 05:41:02 AM »
Thanks, I did manage to get there on my own which means I must be learning something.  It's great to hear your reply matches what I figured out!

So,
For future reference, to use a USB-ethernet adapter with piCore 9 on a pi zero:
Download http://repo.tinycorelinux.net/9.x/armv6/tcz/net-usb-4.9.22-piCore.tcz
Place it on the SD card: /mnt/mmcblk0p2/tce/optional/
Add "net-usb-4.9.22-piCore.tcz" to /mnt/mmcblk0p2/tce/onboot.lst

1. I think I did this last step, but how can I check?  What is the text editor in TinyCore?

2. I did sudo reboot and have ethernet (ifcongig shows eth0), so that's great.
3. I did tce-load -w TC.ycz and it downloaded everything (just like the youtube video I mentioned above)
4. I then celebrated with a cheer (prematurely at it turns out) then typed startx and get
-sh: startx: not found

After 7 hours, I feel like I'm so close!
Once I've got this working I'll write a full How-To for installing PiCore on a Pi Zero for newbies like me!  Should help open up TinyCore to more of the younger Pi generation!

Thanks in advance for help with the (hopefully) final step...

You need to download the extensions you need on another machine from:

http://www.tinycorelinux.net/9.x/armv6/tcz

and copy them into /mnt/mmcblk0p2/tce/optional.

For each extension you need:

extension_name.tcz
extension_name.tcz.dep (might not exist)
extension_name.tcz.md5.txt

..and repeat the process for each extension listed in extension_name.tcz.dep

You load extensions with "tce-load -i extension_name", "install" is used for something else entirely.

Thanks for the reply, but there is no mention in the book of how to use the "install" command mentioned above.  It's understandable as it's probably too basic for anyone who isn't completely new to linux.

I've managed to get this far now...

1. Without internet connection you can't do "tce-ab" so can't search for a driver.

2. Trying "tce -i"...
/mnt/mmcblk0p1 has no tcz files in the folder or the "overlaps" sub-folder
/mnt/mmcblk0p2 has a tce folder. sub-folder "ondemand" is empty, "optional" has tcz files but there is no

net-usb-KERNEL.tcz
or
net-usb-4.4.20-piCore+.tcz

as mentioned in the previous comments.
 
So I'm pretty much stuck.

3. There is mention in this forum post of where to download net-usb-4.9.22-piCore.tcz on an internet connected pi, but you have to be connected in the first place!
http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php?topic=21327.0

4. There is a great video for newbies like me on how to add the WIFI drivers for the Pi ZERO W to the microsd card BEFORE first boot.
I just need to do the same for the Pi Zero (NO W) with an USB ethernet driver.

Thanks in advance for your replies.

It would probably be best to read the tinycore book first.

You need to either unpack and prepare the kernel source or load the linux-kernel-sources-env extension.

Did you install the    net-usb-KERNEL.tcz  extension?
There is an  asix  module in  net-usb-4.4.20-piCore+.tcz .
for the  lsusb  command, install  usbutils.tcz .

Hello, I'm completely new to linux and not sure how to install an application on the command line.

I've tried

install net-usb-KERNEL.tcz

but the screen replies with with...

BusyBox v1.26.2 (2017-05-05 07:13:57 UTC) multi-call bninary.

Usage: install...blah, blah.


I am completely new to linux so can anyone help me with the full command to use?

Thanks in advance.

Although there are a lot of warnings, this works and the configure script starts to run:
Code: [Select]
$ tce-load -i compiletc automake libtool-dev intltool
./autoconf.sh

dCore x86 Imported Extensions / Re: Xtc and ~/.X.d/ scripts

Hi Jason W
So to prevent things like 11A and 12A from executing before 1A, one should ensure the numeric field is the same width
on all filenames.

Here is the results of the order of files you mentioned -

1/11a
1/11A
1/12
1/1a
1/1A

It is the sort command run on the ~/.X.d/ scripts
