After failing miserably getting Arch loaded on my Cubieboard 1, I was happy to discover that Tiny or rather Micro or dCore or whatever it is, loaded just fine. Many thanks to roberts.
Have had a challenging day or 2 or 3 figuring out the peculiarities of the Allwinner version of Micro/dCore having never run Tiny Core but I'm getting there. Will probably write up my experience later because there isn't a lot of help out there for a newbie jumping into Micro/dCore without fiddling with Tiny Core before.
After finally getting some semblance of persistence working - whew! - I'd like to phase out the "tc" user for security reasons and establish an alternate primary user. That requires setting up the "sudoers" file to give that user root privileges. That, in turn, requires "visudo" which evidently doesn't exist.
Surely this is an oversight. Or have I overlooked something yet again?
Thanks again for a fine little distro. I love the "build what you want from scratch" philosophy of Tiny Core. It's the same philosophy that drew me to Arch several years ago. Except Tiny Core is even smaller. Very nice!
