New to Micro core, some help on an automated install?
« on: April 03, 2013, 02:17:39 PM »
So, what I'd like to do is add two binaries (And their dependencies). The binaries of transmission, and a program I'm creating. I'm going to use it as a rapid-deployment cd that's small, fast, and automated. However, I don't exactly know how to do this, nor do I know how to use the package system. All I need Microcore to do is boot from USB/DVD, load the two binaries, and be done with it, and I don't need any boot prompts either. Any tips on how to do this? Thanks in advance..

I would suggest you try downloading the CorePlus version of tinycore this has a remaster app that you can use to take the core iso for tinycore and modify it. Wiki pages about remastering are here: http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/wiki:start#remastering

As for the additional software you want to add there is a wiki page about creating extensions here: http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/wiki:creating_extensions. If you follow the guide you can download your applications source code to a tinycore machine and then compile it on the machine and build it into a tcz format. Once you have done that and tested it works on the machine you can then copy the tcz file and include it when doing the remastering of the core iso.
