Hi Markus,
I'm new at this.
I followed your instructions but achieved nothing. The monitor remains black. I edited the config.txt file but I can not results.
to energize, and LNK LEDs flash OK, so I'll keep trying.
Greetings and thank you for the effort.

Do you see boot messages ot nothing at all?

Is it analog or digital (HDMI ot DVI) monitor? Did you try Raspbian, does it work?

My SD card is 8GB
My system ubuntu 10.04 lucid - core 2.6.32-42-generic
monitor: analog

gaston@gaston-nb:~$ sudo dd if=/media/G2J-PEN001/piCore-X-beta121119a.img of=/dev/mmcblk0 bs=1M

At boot in RPI, the display is black all time.
what is wrong?

Yes 38M is correct. Check config.txt settings and compare with settings of you working other distro.

BTW, is it a 256 or 512M RAM Pi?

Hello Markus,

Sorry I'm absolutely newbie to linux   :-[
I have successfully installed squeezelite to the Raspbian distro.
I also succeeded in installing piCore-X beta
My wish is to make a very minimalist squeezelite only system.
That is why I would like to install squeezelite in piCore.

Trying to do so, I'm facing different problems.
1/ I don't know should I install different directory and don't know how to proceed.
2/ I don't know how to create disk partition if necessary (as my disk looks like not fully partitioned)
3/ don't know how to load french keyboard and save the option
4/ don't know anything :'(

best regards,
Jean

Another thing that is not working for me : sudo apt-get

You'll find the howto for squeezelite installation on the Raspberry pi forum at the "Installing Squeezelite" topic

Best regards,
Jean

It is not Raspbian nor a Debian clone. It has its own package management.

It is too early for your application, e.g. Alsa is not yet available. Check back later. Till you can read core concept and play with core on x86 platform to get familiar with it.

New version of piCore-X beta available:

http://www.hasix.org/tc/piCore-X-beta130114a.img.xz

Identical to the previous version except boot loader which now identifies both 256M and 512M RAM board variants properly.

Hi, just a quick question as you appreciate I am still learning..

Why is there two versions of piCore ?

I use the standard version and added the Desktop Environment manually, or should I just the the X version ?

piCore is the base version and let's say the only version.

piCore-X is piCore + preloaded extensions, an example use of piCore and extensions

Installing the necessary extensions on stock piCore you get piCore-X except the preloaded extensions in piCore-X are in a cde directory of mmcblk0p1 instead of a tce directory in another partion, which makes image distribution smaller and easier.
