TCB Tips & Tricks / Re: what is grub menu entry after frugal instalation?
« Last post by marmarama on October 17, 2014, 12:31:39 AM »
i tried what you suggested
menuentry "TC-5" {
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root c24280e8-8a74-4de9-817b-fecf26dce8d6
linux /boot/vmlinuz loglevel=3
initrd /boot/core.gz
}
then update grub,  NOT working.
my uuid must be the one from sda1 where tiny core is installed?

« Last post by coreplayer2 on October 16, 2014, 10:12:17 PM »
copying verbatim wasn't exactly the intention I had here..


something like this might be a better starting point

menuentry "TC-5" {
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root c24280e8-8a74-4de9-817b-fecf26dce8d6
linux /boot/vmlinuz loglevel=3
initrd /boot/core.gz
}

(replace the above id with your hardware id if this one is not correct)

if you run into problems, you might find also this site useful

i copied from coreplayer-thanks for sharing-
menuentry "TC-5-x86 (on SSD)" {
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root 5AE6-1546
linux /boot/vmlinuz-3813 noswap tz=GMT loglevel=3 waitusb=5:UUID="5d14ddd5-7fa7-40c5-a247-07ac5e9c6a8c" tce=UUID="5d14ddd5-7fa7-40c5-a247-07ac5e9c6a8c"/x86 opt=UUID="5d14ddd5-7fa7-40c5-a247-07ac5e9c6a8c" home=UUID="5d14ddd5-7fa7-40c5-a247-07ac5e9c6a8c" lst=onboot32nvidia.lst mydata=mydata32xorg
initrd /boot/rootfs-530.gz /boot/modules-3813.gz
}

but i dont know how i should modify my entry

Is the uuid you mention above the correct one for your hardware (what are you booting tinycore from)?
Have you renamed vmlinuz, rootfs.gz and modules.gz or are you using the default names?

TCE Talk / Re: NFSd used with SymLinks?
« Last post by centralware on October 16, 2014, 08:38:53 PM »
After exhaustive research on the topic (ie: "cross-mounting" with NFS) I believe I've come up with a solid theory as to why this isn't working...  which will be tested here shortly once I've un-done the damage from experimenting.

Pieces involved:
NFS inherent security
Exports
Manual pages being a bit misleading

The excerpt is as follows:
Code: [Select]
crossmnt: This option is similar to nohide but it makes it possible for clients to move from the filesystem marked with crossmnt
to exported filesystems mounted on it. Thus when a child filesystem "B" is mounted on a parent "A", setting crossmnt on "A"
has the same effect as setting "nohide" on B.

This makes one assume that in /etc/exports, if I were to set /nfs as an exported file system and use crossmnt as an option, all "child" file systems will follow in turn.  The catch here is that /nfs itself is being bound AS a child (IMO) which is likely the cause for the permission issues.

After removing the mounted filesystem, /nfs is accessible (server AND client side) so my permissions set on /nfs itself seem to be good.
I can't see myself launching the root directory ( / ) as a PARENT, so the CHILD has "issues" so to speak of following the exportfs command.  (Again, in theory.)
My next test is to mount the hard drives in directories UNDER /nfs and see if this works.  I'm expecting the same permission errors even though crossmnt is being noted in the options.
What I expect will work is:
/nfs (empty) being set in exports with cross-mount.
/nfs/mnt1 (mount --bind or directly mounted) AND an additional export listing for /nfs/mnt1 with "nohide"
/nfs/mnt2 (mount --bind or directly mounted) AND an additional export listing for /nfs/mnt2 with "nohide"
* I'm thinking that if done in this fashion, even SymLinks "should" work as expected with NFSd

Based on the documentation, it sounds as those extra export entries are not supposed to be necessary, but based on experimentation it seems as though they're going to.  (Any other experiences out there would be appreciated!)

thanks for answering,
 here is my boot.cfg    tiny core is in sda1, lubuntu in sda2 and win7 in sda3. tiny core is core plus current pc is 32 my UUID for sda1 is UUID="c24280e8-8a74-4de9-817b-fecf26dce8d6
again thanks!

dCore Imported Extensions / gparted
« Last post by Jason W on October 16, 2014, 01:04:27 PM »
I changed the .desktop file for gparted so it starts with root privileges.   The Debian menu item does not start anything at least with small window managers.  And by starting gparted, I think it is safe to assume you are wanting to repartition and or reformat storage devices with root priviges.

hi jason,

thanks a lot, now it works fine :)

such a great, clean program, now so easy to use :)

thank you for your help and commitment.

Added a more small WM compatible .desktop entry for minitube, simply runs minitube.  Works with fluxbox.

dCore X86 / Re: ub-dCore-trusty
« Last post by Jason W on October 16, 2014, 11:20:03 AM »
Minitube for me was not showing video but was making sound.  I spent an hour or so looking into dependencies and even changed my video card, but upon a fresh import using one file list, minitube worked with sound and video.  WIth trusty like with jessie, I suggest only using one sce made from a package list file as their packges are being updated frequently which can make for breakage if combining new and old sce's.
