piCore-8.0beta2
« on: June 17, 2016, 03:17:20 AM »
Team Tiny Core is proud to announce immediate availability of the second beta release of the piCore-8.0 edition.


8.0beta2

- kernel updated to 4.4.13
- e2fsprogs updated to 1.43.1
- MicroPython updated
- RPi firmware updated to 20160613


8.0beta1

- kernel 4.4.11
- glibc 2.23
- BusyBox 1.24.2
- util-linux 2.28
- e2fsprogs 1.43
- MicroPython 1.8
- Perl 5.24
- GCC 6.1

TC scripts also updated to latest common base. Except ncurses which doesn't build properly all packages in the repo updated and rebuilt using the new toolchain, not just copied over from 6.x/7.x repos. Dependencies revised, may be different to previous versions. It means limited number of packages in the repo, e.g. Xorg and graphical stuff are missing.

Only one SD card image available, it works on all RPi boards. Download location:

http://tinycorelinux.net/8.x/armv6/test_releases/

Please try it and share your experience, bugs found, etc.

 :) worked, tested on pi 3b. Nothing graphical because not yet compiled? It will be available, right?

Thanks for the feedback. Xorg will come next.

Hi Béla

  Just been testing WiFi on latest beta and there is a missing dependency; wireless_tools.tcz is missing from wpa_supplicant.tcz.dep, and wpa_supplicant fails to load due to this.

Cheers

Bela,

Great Progress, did you pull this kernel on Monday after the DMA backport was merged?

Has the rpi3 internal wifi firmware been updated as well?      Updated brcmfmac43430-sdio.bin - version 7.45.41.26 https://github.com/RPi-Distro/firmware-nonfree/commit/a7491de4c4b2f1ceb5d0dfa5350b95e5c6fb9bd4

It was cloned on June 15, around 20:00 UTC

Nothing done with firmware.

That does include the kernel Dma code, supposedly, that is a good improvement.

Thanks Belá.

We will stat testing and using piCore 8.0 as basis for piCorePlayer.
Where can I find the sources so we can stat building the extra packages we need?

Regards

Hi Béla,

I´ve installed squeezelite using my tutorial, and everything seems to work fine. I had to do the same Alsa modification as with beta1.
Installing bash produced the same error as with beta1.

Another thing I noticed, the on board soundcard is switched on, instead of default switched off as in beta1 and the 7 versions.
Did you do this on purpose?

Those are the first one's spawned children, they're supposed to be there.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Yes, it was no yet touched, only the core.

Yes I enabled it by default in config.txt for those using only onboard sound, not external. It is just one line in config.txt to comment if one do not like it.

What exactly do you put in config or what to do to prevent it from loading into ram, I want to make changes but none of them save and I really mean changes not just to install applications but to change something in etc or var or tmp and keep those changes. I am so sorry but I reall didn't understand the readme, just that there's mounting mode but everything I did still didn't keep any changes ...
