piCore-6.1 released
« on: June 24, 2015, 06:30:20 AM »
Team Tiny Core is pleased to announce the immediate availability of piCore-6.1.

Changes:

* Kernel updated to 3.18.10
* e2fsprogs updated to 1.42.13
* util-linux updated to 2.26.2
* BusyBox updated to v1.23.2
* tcz repository updated intensively

Images with preinstalled SSH for headless operation and with GUI also available.

Please note there are separate images for boards with armv6 and armv7 processors, choose one fits to your board. Download locations:

armv6: http://tinycorelinux.net/6.x/armv6/releases/images/
armv7: http://tinycorelinux.net/6.x/armv7/releases/RPi2/images/

Updating previous versions on Raspberry Pi without removing SD card:

Download piCore-6.1-boot.tar.gz or piCore-6.1_v7-boot.tar.gz  depending on your board, extract to a temporary folder and overwrite content of /mnt/mmcblk0p1 after mounting it. It will overwrite custom boot options. If you have customised cmdline.txt on config.txt in the old system, do it again. Do not reboot if using wireless remote connection, otherwise you will loose connection due to incompatible kernel modules!

Next download kernel module tcz's from the repo matching new kernel version and reboot. You must have a new, updated system working.

Please note, there may be kernel module extensions which are not yet available in the repo.

Before modifying mmcblk01 content, it is adviced to make backup to a persistent device.

Isn't it a small typo (copy & paste)?

Do not post extension requests nor extension bugs here, there are relevant topics.

Keep this for piCore base related related discussion.
