I would like to make extensions
« on: January 22, 2013, 01:43:48 AM »
Hello, I am looking to remaster tinycore liveCD so
1) it loads specific drivers for specific hardware not found at: distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux/3.x/tcz/ ; and
2) executes certain commands at boottime, such as "modprobe pciehp pciehp_force=1", to make my ExpressCard slot work.

I have done a reasonable amount of looking around to find my answer.  I certainly have not read every post here, but I have searched for messages and looked at http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,7495.0.html

At the present time, I can successfully remaster tinycore by decompressing everything and recompressing it.

However, I have been unsuccessful in finding a comprehensive, easy-to-follow tutorial on how to create extensions.  I need to be able to compile a variety of hardware drivers and include them on the remaster CD I intend to make.  If someone would please point me in the right direction so I can find a good tutorial, I would be quite grateful.  Thank you my friends.

To start, should I install coreplus to a partition, instead of using a live CD? Then try to make an extension from coreplus installed on my computer?  I am having a difficult time learning where to begin.  Thank you friends.

The boot medium shouldn't really make a difference.

Before making an extension I advice to get familiar with the core concept of the system. You do not have to install it on a HDD at all. Boot from USB or CD and store only downloaded extensions and your backup in a directory on partion with compatible file sytem, ext2/ext3/ext4 or in worst case FAT/FAT32.

No need fore CorePlus, TC is a good starting point.
