wifi and dCore...
« on: March 26, 2015, 08:25:55 AM »
Hi all,

just a question.
I'm really excited about dCore and I would like to give it a try. I have already downloaded all the needed files for jessie, but I see in the sce list that there is no wifi package as there is for wheezy. So my question is: the wifi package has been merged with one of the existing packages or I will not be able to use the simple connecting script I know from standard Tiny Core Plus?

Thanks in advance

Hi sbaguz,
I will add a wifi.sce package for the other dCore ports.  I did not realize it was missing.  I will aim for that today, but definitely by the weekend.

Wifi is part of the wireless.sce mega extension.  So the wifi.sce in the dCore-wheezy area is deprecated and will be removed.

Just load the wireless.sce and you will have the wifi tool.

Thanks.
Now I think I'm ready to test dCore.

Wow!!!  :o
Everything has been easier than expected: I love dCore!!!  :-*
Even if I still have some doubts/feature requests (i.e: how to uninstall a package? how to update a package?), I think/hope one day dCore will be the default Tiny Core distro: the magic of Tiny Core + the Debian package repositories=the best possible distro!

But trying to connect (with usual cliorx sudo wifi.sh) gave me an unexpected problem: I got an error saying

Code: [Select]
locale not supported by C library, locale unchanged
and I wasn't able to connect. But I did nothing to locale, I left default settings.
I simply installed fluxbox, aterm, geany, midnight commander, p7zipfull, feh, mplayer (onboot) and links, xpdf (ondemand).

Can you help me?

I think I found were the problem was...
I restarted dCore with a base option, then I loaded one-by-one my sce packages.
The problem arose with Links2.
Then I realized that I did not directly change locale, but in Links2 settings I chose my language (Italian): in some way this messed up the terminal configuration, breaking wifi script.

I hope this can help.

Ok, I don't use locales or other languages so would be hard for me to test.  Was it the same terminal session as links was run in that saw the issue?

Not only that one: from that moment on, even rebooting, I haven't been able to use wifi script anymore in any terminal session...
To solve this issue I basically had to make a new install and to avoid changing language in Links2.
I suppose it would have been the same simply deleting .links folder in my home/tc.

Ok.  It seems to be how the programs are interacting and not something I can control from my end.  Probably the same behavior between links and wifi is seen in Core.
