Hi,

I am trying to make GIT, but it complains that it can't find openssl. But I cannot find openssl in the tce repository?

Greetings,

I am looking for the kernel header files (I think..), so I can compile the Ralink drivers.
I am getting this message when executing make on the ralink drivers:

Code: [Select]
make: *** /lib/modules/3.10.10-piCore/build: No such file or directory.  Stop.
make: *** [LINUX] Error 2

Hi bmarkus

Thanks for the update (alpha2). I have been trying to get my scripts for piCorePlayer to "run" on the piCore5 image.
The good thing is that the sound is fine both the analog out as well as via a USB_DAC.

But I have two issues:
1. In version 4.7.7 I could use a command like:  cat /mnt/mmcblk0p1/config.txt  to show and then manipulate the config.txt file. However in piCore5 somehow the boot files can't be found, and the command does not show the content of config.txt. I can't even see the boot files in mnt/mmcblk0p1 via winscp anymore (they can bee seen via winscp in 4.7.7)

2. I can't figure out how to mount an external USB-stick in version 5.   In version 4.7.7. I would use "mount /dev/sda1" but that won't work in version5.
Also fdisk -l does not show the USB-stick in version 5 anymore.

Probably it is not mounted. Try

Code: [Select]
sudo mount /mnt/mmcblk0p1

Please check with lsusb thar USB stick is seen or not. If yes, execute

Code: [Select]
sudo rebuildfstab
and check it appears in /mnt

Yep - now it is visible.

But this is a different behaviour compared to 4.7.7. So is it something that you will change, or is it as it should be now in version 5?

I can see it in lsusb
Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ lsusb

Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

Bus 001 Device 005: ID 0930:6545 Toshiba Corp. Kingston DataTraveler 102 Flash Drive / HEMA Flash Drive 2 GB / PNY Attache 4GB Stick

But even after sudo rebuildfstab it can't be seen:
Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ sudo fdisk -l

Disk /dev/mmcblk0: 1023 MB, 1023934464 bytes
11 heads, 8 sectors/track, 22725 cylinders

/dev/mmcblk0p2             373         817       19564  83 Linux

or

Code: [Select]
tc@box:/mnt$ ls

tc@box:/mnt$
