Looks like latest pcre update broke apache. I will fix it, but for the mean time please try the following, execute commands below as root in terminal:

Code: [Select]
cd /usr/local/lib
ln -s lbpcre.so.1 libpcre.so.0
ldconfig

It may work or not .

Hi Belá!

Now I've discovered what it is that changes the keyboard layout when I'm continually running the piCore X distro. I've had piCore running 24/7 simultaneously with the latest Raspbian on 2 B+ RPi's. Since I only have one wireless keyboard and mouse dedicated to the RPi's I swap the USB receivers from one to another depending on which one I use. When I connect them to the RPi running piCore the keyboard layout changes from Swedish to the default US. I don't know why. Maybe that's the way it should be. I just thought I should mention it.

Keep up the good work,
Mats

Hi meo
What's probably happening is when you unplug the USB devices it removes them from the system. When you plug them back in, it senses
that and adds them back in as new devices. You could probably add a rule to udev to run  setxkbmap -model pc105 -layout se -option ""
when it detects the keyboard got plugged in, though I don't know what the syntax would be.

Hi Rich!

Usually I just issue this command from LXterminal: setxkbmap -model pc105 -layout se -option "" and that gives me the Swedish keyboard layout back again.

Have fun,
meo

Hi Belá!

How will the development of piCore proceed? Switch to Arm7 or parallell development for older RPi's and the RPi 2?

Hi Mats

RPi 2 needs a different kernel which means different initd, at least different set of kernel modules. To keep size low and avoid unused files, it results two versions, one for armv6, and another for armv7. As it was discussed already, for armv7 we can reuse armv6 extensions and change them to armv7 where it gives significant benefits, but it means two different repos, similar to x86 and x86_64

Hi Belá!

So piCore will come in two versions. One optimized for the RPi 2 and another optimized for RPi 1. Sounds good! I was just curious since the RPi 2 is faster than my laptop (an old Asus netbook) and I think it would be wise to try to get the best out of it also in piCore. Thanks!

Greetings,
Mats

I'm having an issue. I just downloaded the image. tce directory is already set to partition 02 of the sd card, and I can't permanently change it. When I do change it with tce-setdrive, it reverts to p02 after boot. Any help is appreciated thank you.

What do you mean 'permanentléy change'? Provide details what is your goal.

Hi.  piCore newbie here, so apologies if I'm asking in the wrong place.

I'd like to use dnsmasq with piCore 6.0, but I don't see it in the repo.  Is it something that can be added or do I need to investigate bind, dhcp etc?

It is not in the repo yet, but I will add it in the next days.

Hi Bela'

Nice job  :)...

When do you think, the kernel will freeze with this release?
Or is it 3.12.36, which will be used further on now?

I am asking, because i will build a bunch of special app. (Lirc etc.. Which uses some kernel modules)
I am just waiting for the kernel to settle  :)

Regards / Jesper

Hi Jesper,

did you already have success building lirc on piCore 6.0? I greatly failed as it told me the gcc is not able to compile any file...

Regards
