Confirmed, tinycore.iso needs the additional extensions included.

Tinycore iso removed for the time being

On Hyper-V (Windows 8 ) the attached virtual disks are not visible to Core client when booting Core-5.0.alpha4.iso .

fdisk -l yields no output. Used to work with Core-4.7.7.iso .


edit:
problem solved.  hv_storvsc driver needs to be loaded separately from scsi-3.8.10-tinycore.tcz . Can we please have that driver included in core.gz ?

Does anyone have the egilbc build script from the 4.x series? RPC support has been removed from glibc as of 2.14. The headers are still there, which causes problems, and TI-RPC isn't a drop in replacement.

I should ask, going forward has TC switched from eglibc to glibc?

A little off-topic for tc-5.x, but see:

http://www.tinycorelinux.net/4.x/x86/release/src/toolchain/

Note that eglibc was rebuilt after the original toolchain was built as there were some difficulties with making it i486 compatible

May I know how to find tc-install or somewhat similar; or does the alpha version not come with that package?

Hi coreplayer2!

Do you just substitute the actual files to test TC-5.0-Alfa4 after installing TC 4.7.7?

Kind regards,
meo

You would need to substitute core.gz and vmlinuz

..or rename them to core5.gz/vmlinuz5 and create a new boot loader menu entry

Thanks Juanito!

Trying TC 5.0 alfa 4 as I am typing, will just pass on some error messages given during this tryout,

Trying to start chromium,

usr/local/chromium-browser/chromium-browser: error while loading shared libraries: libXss.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory  :(

Trying to start JTR,

fopen: john.ini: No such file or directory  :(

Another obvious thing is that there is no minimize button ( - ) in neither of the extensions and the only web browser with a gui I could make work (using now) is Opera.

Hope this can be of some help and thanks for all the hard work you guys are putting in,
meo

PS  Forgot to mention that I was making my tryout using a live cd  DS

I suggest you read through the alpha testing threads

Xlibs and flwm have changed/been recompiled and Xorg-7.6{,-lib} has become Xorg-7.7{,-lib} - you basically need to be sure you start with a clean set of extensions from the tce-5.x repo.

Well as I mentioned post scriptum (PS) I was using a cd with only the iso-file of the reposted TC 5.0 Alfa 4 (about 12 MB in size) burned on it. Diskless in other words, so the environment must have been as pristine as possible when I made this trial of the latest Alfa cut. Nevertheless I got the error messages mentioned above. Hope there are no misunderstandings left.

Have fun improving TC,
meo
