Use of tce folder
« on: August 05, 2015, 01:06:43 AM »
Hi,

i have installed (frugal) tc on my laptop and have a on sda1 the tce folder. Now i want to play with a version booting from a usb-stick (which also contains a tce folder)....but any time the tce-folder on sda1 is used. How can i change the settings on the stick to use always and only the tce folder on that stick?

Use the uid of the partition on the usb stick containing the tce folder in the tce boot code

For example: tce=UUID="c875b907-75c7-470a-b16d-98e76d69dec7"/tce64

google is your friend and consulting the tinycore wiki also works:

the UUID method is exactly how I boot with various specific tce directories named appropriately for the booted system (as in Juanito's example)..

Good luck

How did your extlinux.conf looks to boot with different tce-folders ?
