piCore-7.1beta1 released
« on: March 07, 2016, 01:57:41 AM »
piCore-7.1beta1 released. It is built on 4.1.18 kernel end expected to support the new RPi3 board. Otherwise it is the same as piCore-7.0

alsa, bluetooth and wireless extensions are added to repo. Others will come depending on test result.

Download link: www.tinycorelinux.net/7.x/armv6/test_releases

Please note, it is a unified SD card image for all RPi boards.

The image is OK on Pi2 . On Pi3, even after 3 minutes, only the rainbow screen is visible ( on a Sony TV ) along with blinking green LED.

Thanks, I was afraid of this result :)

We are using filters in config.txt to load the proper kernel and initrd for armv6/armv7 boards. Can you edit config.txt and change [PI2] to [PI3] ?

Thanks, it is all working, as expected, on Pi3 after the change. :D

Thanks. As it is expected it looks like an armv7 processor in this mode. You do net get better performance than RPi2, but you can save the external WiFi and Bluetooth sticks. To have a real 64-bit kernel will take time and to have a Raspbian repo rebuilt for 64-bit even more. Just switching to 64-bit you will not see a performance boot. So I do not see strong arguments to switch to RPi3 now.

Yeah, AFAIK on ARM there is no such difference as on x86 where 64-bit mode has more registers. I'd wait for the Phoronix benches at least before doing anything.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

:) What I did in fact updated armv6/armv7 from 4.1.13 to 4.1.18 kernel and changed configuration to enable RPi3, but nothing RPi3 specific. You can interpret it just as a regular update :)

I don't know if it is of importance but the camera-issue from another post I wrote about is also happening here:

Code: newbielink:javascript:void(0); [nonactive]
tc@box:~$ raspistill -t 5000
mmal: mmal_vc_component_create: failed to create component 'vc.ril.camera' (1:ENOMEM)
mmal: mmal_component_create_core: could not create component 'vc.ril.camera' (1)
mmal: Failed to create camera component
mmal: main: Failed to create camera component
mmal: Camera is not detected. Please check carefully the camera module is installed correctly

The rest seems to work nicely.
