Sure, I will test it out and upload it.
Ok, I will look into it.
dCore X86 / Re: package name cannot be changed
« Last post by Jason W on August 16, 2014, 12:34:41 PM »
Changing the name of an sce is not supported, it will cause issues with several things including the startup scripts.    If a different package name is desired, re-import using the list file option with the desired list file name.
dCore Imported Extensions / flnotify
« Last post by jls_legalize on August 16, 2014, 12:07:49 PM »
Hi Jason and the others
I'm successfully using flnotify.tcz here, so it could be added to the dCore repo.

dCore X86 / package name cannot be changed
« Last post by jls_legalize on August 16, 2014, 12:05:33 PM »
If I change the name of an sce I get errors on /usr/local/sce/package name md5sum when importing a package base on the one I changed the name
On the same machine (eepc 901) I've also elive installed, where pulse works, I attach also the pulse log of elive.
But few days ago I managed to get pulse working on dCore but I couldn't reproduce the success, maybe some libs are missing?

PS. pulse makes sound working also on terminology
Raspberry Pi / Creating PiCore SD Card on a Mac, and first steps on the Pi
« Last post by carld on August 16, 2014, 08:15:21 AM »
Because of a few issues I ran into, here the step by step instructions so you can get started faster:

- Download the .img of your choice from http://tinycorelinux.net/ports.html
- Partition your sd card in Disk Utility into 3 partitions (50MB (Boot), XXX MB (TCE), 250 MB (swap partition))
- Doubleclick the .img file so it gets mounted in disk utility
- Click on restore. Use PiCore as source, the Boot partition on your sd card as target. In 5.3.x, only about 23MB were used. Ignore the free space.
- Eject the sd card, put it in your Pi, start the Pi. No X yet - that part Disk Utility won't do right.
- Create the Linux/TCE partition - see http://tinycorelinux.net/5.x/armv6/releases/5.3/README steps starting with 1). Use the option "u" to see what you are doing. Ignore the little bit of free room OS X left between the partitions.
- Create the Swap partition using mkswap /dev/mmcblk0p3 (you might want to make it a swap partition first with fdisk)
- Install X - see http://distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux/4.x/armv6/README.txt steps 3ff. It starts automatically when rebooting (sudo reboot), or by typing startx.
- In X, you can check out available extensions in "Apps". Quit X and use tce as shown above to install what you like. I installed XFE and Netsurf today. Unluckily, installing and uninstalling from X doesn't work for me so far...
- You can set your resolution in X with the Editor. Click open, double click the first item until you are in root, open opt, then bootlocal.sh. See http://distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux/faq.html F3 boot time options for codes to put into the line vga=7xx.

There might be easier ways to get going, and I'm probably wrong about some of this, but that's what worked for me...

Edit: Found out it's pure chance whether PiCore recognises my Monitor or not after a reboot. Needed a few more reboots to make it work correctly again. My boot options get completely ignored when the system thinks my monitor doesn't support higher resolutions...
Raspberry Pi / boot screen ?
« Last post by imaad on August 16, 2014, 05:49:16 AM »

It's possible to use a background (image) when piCore boot instead of text ?
If yes what I must change?

I tried bkg=image.png  (the image.png file is place in /opt/backgrounds) but this don't work.

Many thanks, err, another dumb question... When gnuplot compiles it puts the executable in /usr/local/bin but when I reboot, its gone!! Can I make it persistent?? Struggling a bit on that one.
