I noticed a bug in syslinux -booting code which prevents making reusable bootable USB-stick. I tried to fix it but syslinux real-mode code is extremely difficult to understand and fix (despite pretty good documentation as linux-code).

Is that working now?

Hi Yleisajattelija. Are you referring to a specific wiki document or should this have been posted as a new dCore help request? Specifically, is what working now? Are you referring to dCore-usbinstall? Personally i am not very familiar with Syslinux so someone else will need to address, sorry.

Recent wiki updates:

dCore sce-ppa-add Command:
http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/dcore:ppa-add_command
-ppa-add command changed to sce-ppa-add.
-Minor --help and wiki changes, same functionality.
-This update just sent to Jason for upload, should be available in Ubuntu-based dCores soon.

dCore SCE Management Commands
http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/dcore:extensions#dcore_sce_management_commands
-Should now include all official, extra and 3rd party related SCE management commands.
-dCore-google-chrome-stable-installer needs updating if a kind soul is inclined.
-getFlash11 not fully tested on my old hardware, install script appeared to work fine.
-Last check dCore-java-installer and user submitted dCore Flash 10 SCE Creation Script worked well.

dCore SCE Overview
http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/dcore:handling_extensions?&#additional_repositories
-Additional Repositories section updated regarding commenting out /debextra/ entries as desired.

dCore Contributing

dCore Desktop Applications:
http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/dcore:desktop_applications?&#dcore_desktop_applications
Numerous browsers tested and added. So far i think every browser tested has worked in dCore without much issue. Jason recently added ca-certificates to those requiring. Some WebKit based browsers (Midori and QupZilla) require a workaround to run JavaScript on older SSE only (non-SSE2) hardware, will start new thread about best way to set this up in dCore.
  Elinks
  Links2
  Lynx
  NetSurf
  QupZilla
  SeaMonkey
  Surf

dCore SeaMonkey Guide
http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/dcore:dcore_seamonkey_guide
Manual Seamonkey install guide added, as it's not in the regular repositories. Ubuntuzilla PPA linked and mentioned but not tested. Manual install works well in dCore-jessie.

dCore Desktop Applications -> Browsers
http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/dcore:desktop_applications?&#browsers
Section updated, more browsers added, last of the browser marathon:
Arora
Dooble
Otter Browser
xombrero

Would be nice to add home grown fifth but i don't see an easy way without custom compile. No PPA, webkitfltk does not appear available in Debian/Ubuntu repo. If anyone wants to custom compile and submit to Jason for the dCore prebuilt repository that might be really nice...or it just stays Tiny Core exclusive...nice too.

Request somebody package it for Debian/Ubuntu via their respective channels, or create a PPA. Several people have requested a PPA, but that needs both time and someone familiar with Ubuntu packaging, I have neither.

You can also use the prebuilt package from sourceforge, if you're on 64-bit.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Also if anyone can share configuration notes and a brief how to for boot loaders other than Grub legacy and Grub2 let me know. Personally would like to learn yet another boot loader but really also to help round out the dCore installation wiki. Please post to wiki or give me your notes and i will upload and format, thanks.

In the wiki I have some bits about Syslinux:
http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/dcore:usb_installation_test-drive
They are mostly complete but need to be put together the right way.

On my USB-installation the following works:
Code: [Select]
ui menu.c32
default dCore
timeout 45

label dCore
        menu label dCore on a stick
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-trusty
        append initrd=/boot/ub-dCore-trusty.gz waitusb=15 blacklist=pcspkr tce=LABEL="dCORE-USB" home=LABEL="dCORE-USB" opt=LABEL="dCORE-USB" host=dCstick lang="de_CH.UTF-8" desktop=openbox tz=CET-1CEST,M3.5.0,M10.5.0/3 multivt syslog showapps pause
Obviously, 'ldlinux.sys' and 'menu.c32' must be available under '/boot/'.

IMHO Syslinux is a great boot-loader for its simplicity and modularity, quite similar to Grub Legacy. So it would fit in very well.


I mean this message, is istallation from USB-stick stable?

Edit: Syslinux ver. 6.03 bugfix-release seems to have some USB-related issues solved, I will test...

As for the armv7 port, I right now am lacking hardware to update it.  I do plan to  back into supporting it when I can get the hardware.   After all, dCore's original purpose was an Allwinner A10 offering of Tinycore.

Advanced dCore SCE Strategies -> Creating Personal Extensions
http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/dcore:extension_strategies#creating_personal_extensions
-new Creating Personal Extensions section

The Advanced dCore SCE Strategies page is messy and under construction, hopefully future revision. The new Creating Personal Extensions section based on response to http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,20496.msg127872.html#msg127872. As noted in the wiki entry, if converting a Tiny Core *.tcz extension to an *.sce, ensure any necessary dependencies are loaded. Although not much manual interaction is typically needed in the TCE directory, *Core begs to be hacked...at user's own risk.

dCore Desktop Applications
http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/dcore:desktop_applications
-Modifed PCManFM, run full featured in minimal install
-Added Project: Starfighter
-Renamed Text Editors, now Text Editors & Office Suites
-Added StarOffice legacy office suite and manual installation steps
-Added OpenOffice office suite

dCore OpenOffice Installation Guide
http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/dcore:dcore_openoffice_guide
-new dCore OpenOffice Installation Guide

Careful Starfighter is addictive. Although not tested, anticipate StarOffice legacy and OpenOffice would also run well in Tiny Core. There are now 3 major office suites that work in dCore. The only other major office suite i know is Kingsoft WPS Office for Linux, they provide a .deb file download if anyone's interested: http://wps-community.org/downloads. Probably not my thing but if it's important to someone i could try to help get it running, just let me know. Thanks.
