My TP-LINK TL-WN721N adapter with Atheros AR9271 chip works fine.

Hi bmarkus.

Do you need to load any special firmware to use this wifi adaptor?

Hi Steen

thanks for trying it. Freezed rc3, no more kernel changes before release.

Hi bmarkus

Just checked the repro:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux/4.x/armv6/tcz/ .... which is the link obtained from the front page.
or
http://tinycorelinux.net/4.x/armv6/tcz/ ... Which is the link obtained from the top of the forum page marked Download

I can only find:
Code: [Select]
firmware-ralinkwifi.tcz

But not 
Code: [Select]
firmware-rtlwifi.tcz
which previously was available

Also where is the firmware for your TP-Link firmware?

firmware-atheros.tcz

Maybe you need to delete cached repo data and recheck (/tmp/md5.db /tmp/tags.db)

Thanks a lot for this great ARM port!! It works flawlessly. Next weekend I will maybe compile some extensions: fluxbox, wmctrl, volumeicon. xpdf, roxfiler, midori, (and maybe mplayer but I'm not sure if I will be able to achieve that with hardware acceleration) and commit them.

According to feedback and my own experience using rc3 intensively it is ready for final release. I'm preparing 5.1 release now.

Hi bmarkus

To follow up on the wifi issue - I just received a new wifi dongle "Edimax EW-7811UN 150Mbps Wireless Nano USB Adapter" it is working perfectly with piCore 5.1rc3

Using the 8192cu module just as my now retired comfast wifi dongle

Finally got around to testing these.   I could not get my keyboard to work with this image.    The image would boot to the command prompt, just no keyboard......of course with no keyboard, I could not get any diagnostics.

Never had this problem with any Picore image or Rasbian.

What is the keybord make/model?

Is it connected directly to Pi or via USB hub?
