piCore-7.0alpha5
« on: September 15, 2015, 09:46:43 PM »
Team Tiny Core is pleased to announce the availability of piCore-7.0alpha5, the Raspberry Pi port of Tiny Core Linux (TC) for RPi2; RPi armv6 version will follow soon.. Changes in this release:


piCore-7.0alpha5:

* kernel updated to 4.1.7
* new USB sound cards enabled

From now openssl-1.0.1.tcz replaced with openssl.tcz which is the latest 1.0.2d upstream with SSLv2/SSLv3 disabled. Packages using openssl are partly rebuilt remaining will be rebuilt.

python3.tcz renamed to python3.4.tcz and python3.5.tcz added to repo.


piCore-7.0alpha4:

* util-linux updated to 2.7
* BusyBox mount/umount replaced with util-linux
* new, faster startup tcz loader (copy to RAM is not yet supported)


piCore-7.0alpha3:

* kernel updated to 4.1.6
* must have kernel modules moved to kernel
* HDMI audio patched to support 192kbs audio
* ext4 file system encryption enabled
* Mediatek WiFi adapters supported
* New audio DAC added
* default CPU speed governor changed to performance
* Core scripts updated to TC 6.4 level


piCore-7.0alpha2:

* Core scripts updated to latest common script base
* significantly reduced startup time
* new motd/penguin
* MicroPython updated, heap size increased to 1M from 128k


piCore-7.0alpha1:

* kernel 4.1.4
* glibc 2.22
* BusyBox 1.23.2
* gcc 5.2.0
* e2fsprog 1.42.13
* util-linux 2.26.2

This version supports the RPi CM (Compute Module).

As a new feature Micro Python added to base. It is a small footprint version of Python 3.4 developed for embedded systems, ideal for scripting tools replacing shell.


Download links:

http://tinycorelinux.net/7.x/armv7/test_releases/ - for RPi2
http://tinycorelinux.net/7.x/armv6/test_releases/ - for all other boards

Only the SSH version is offered. If you want GUI, install TC.tcz from the repo. To get the base system with cloud mode, no persistent storage just delete the second partition, /dev/mmcblk0p2 on the SD card.


Notes:

To enable special devices and interfaces check config.txt file and read https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware/blob/master/boot/overlays/README

The final notice, don't forget to expand /dev/mmcblk0p2 before adding extensions, as described in README.

Anyone have luck mounting an NFS share?

mounts worked fine in picore 6.1,

This is the only error message in dmesg or messages with syslog enabled
Code: [Select]
NFS: server address does not match proto= option

The error printed when I try to mount is
Code: [Select]
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on 192.168.0.140:/volume1/Linux,
       missing codepage or helper program, or other error
       (for several filesystems (e.g. nfs, cifs) you might
       need a /sbin/mount.<type> helper program)

       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail or so.

something is still not right.  I still get the same error.    nfsd.ko did not automatically load either.   I did manually modprobe it, but no luck yet.
