dCore X86 / Re: Debian Jessie dCore
« Last post by netnomad on September 18, 2014, 08:31:12 AM »
The command is "blkid -lt LABEL=TC", I made a typo.
tc@box:~$ blkid -lt LABEL=TC
tc@box:~$ sudo blkid -lt LABEL=TC
tc@box:~$

there is no echo or result to this command.

Oh, and I assume you have renamed vmlinuz-jessie to vmlinuz?
yes, you're right.

One thing that may help is to start with only the tce directory being specified on the boot line, and if that works start adding each one back one at a time and see at what point it fails.

my whole bootcode works fine, only waitusb with label-mode waitusb=5:LABEL=tc makes problems:

kernel /live/dcore-testing/boot/vmlinuz waitusb=5 protect restore=LABEL=tc tce=LABEL=tc/tce lst=sceboottest.lst vga=795 psmouse.proto=imps settime tz=CET-1CEST,M3.5.0,M10.5.0/3 laptop kmap=de multivt lang=de_DE.UTF-8 mydata=dcoret blacklist=snd_usb_audio intel_rng.no_fwh_detect=-1 printk.time=1 cron desktop=fluxbox log=3 acpi_sleep=s3_bios,s3_mode showapps

What is the md5sum of your dCore-jessie.gz?
i renamed dCore-jessie.gz to dCore.gz:
tc@box:~/.MNT/sdb1/live/dcore-testing/boot$ md5sum dCore.gz
1b2e5d9ba7ff976652f48698a3a44664  dCore.gz
that md5sum should be correct.

blkid -it LABEL=tc
tc@box:~/.MNT/sdb1/live/dcore-testing/boot$ blkid -it LABEL=tc
The low-level probing mode requires a device

tc@box:~$ blkid -s LABEL /dev/sdb2
/dev/sdb2: LABEL="tc"

tc@box:~$ sudo lsblk -o name,label,mountpoint /dev/sdb
NAME   LABEL   MOUNTPOINT
sdb           
|-sdb1 MYSTICK /mnt/sdb1
`-sdb2 tc      /mnt/sdb2

i attached the photos of my two boot-versions,
first with label the failed boot process :(
second without label and a successful boot process :)

Hello,

Also, if you don't even know how to partition and format a drive, how are you going to build a wireless print server?
Who said that?

92M of ram is not much.  CUPS plus wireless might be a tight squeeze.

well that might not be the actual reason for your problem, it was just a guess - most of the extensions are compiled for i486.

You can use the fdisk command to partition and format your hard drive, but be very careful that you do not delete something useful.

Hello,
       Thanks for the reply. Does this mean TinyCore is unsuitable for my machine? Is there a command I can use in a terminal I could partition and format the hard drive with please?

Perhaps it might be freezing because an extension is being loaded that has been compiled for a higher spec cpu than yours.

All x86 extensions should be compiled for i486, but I've seen some (I don't recall which) have been compiled for i686

CorePlus / CorePlus freezes
« Last post by trustytrev on September 18, 2014, 04:15:01 AM »
Hello,
       I am trying to boot and install CorePlus iso cd onto an old low spec Compaq Armada 1598DT notebook but the load up stops at Loading /boot/core.gz.....
I can load to the command line but don't know how or if I can proceed from there. Is this issue likely to be the very low specification of the notebook.
It has a 266MHz Pentium processor and only 92MB of memory  and the FSB is 66MHz. It has a 4GB harddrive.
My intention was to use this machine as a wireless remote linux printer server. Is this likely to be possible using TinyCore please?
Thanks.

I think TC has "healthy" linux distribution and among those few distributions which try to minimimize linux. One valuable property of TC is that it is made to be expandable. There is command line core, which you can expand to grafical environment. Even xterm/xorg grafical is small and efficient.

Of course, you can do that with other distroes, but they are not meant to be like that.

GNU-linux is free code environment, so programmers have free choise to use tools they want. So they do, and many popular applications are made by "strange" tools. And lot of work is made on universities with brand new programming languages. If you like to be install all apllications, you need huge variety of different shell script languges, compilers, window mangers, grafical libraries etc.

I think, if debian system would be efficiently designed, all applications would need at least 10 times less storage/memory. You wouldn't really need 15 pieces of almost identical grafical libraries, but becouse of free code, there is no way to force coders to use same tools/libraries.

So, in practice, to minimize linux you have to choose applications, it is only way to try to limit size/complexity of the system.

One valuable issues is scalabilty, it is very convenient first to boot only with kernel and minimum set of commands and tools. Next stage you typically need xterm/vesa and then Xorg.

At the other hand, sometimes I want use those many applications which are made for unix/linux, but then I have to accept terabits of unefficient code. Practical solution is to use separate TC USB-sticks with diffrent setup.
