Hi Juanito,

Are you saying that it was added, or that will be added at a later date? Because I can't find it here:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux/9.x/armv6/tcz/
nor
http://distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux/9.x/armv6/tcz/updates/updatelist.txt
which is where it should be located, yes? (as of this posting)

Thanks, guys!

For future reference, to use a USB-ethernet adapter with piCore 9 on a pi zero:

Sorry to revive such an old thread, but I'm having this problem today.

I'm just trying to plug my Raspberry Pi Zero using PiCore on USB as a network device, so I can just SSH into it.

I've tried already the last post's procedure (putting "http://repo.tinycorelinux.net/9.x/armv6/tcz/net-usb-4.9.22-piCore.tcz" on "/mnt/mmcblk0p2/tce/optional/" and adding the "net-usb-4.9.22-piCore.tcz" line to the end of the "/mnt/mmcblk0p2/tce/onboot.lst" file.
After reboot, nothing happened.
Tried the regular "Raspbian" procedure as well after the above procedure (add "dtoverlay=dwc2" on "config.txt" and "modules-load=dwc2,g_ether" after "rootwait" on "cmdline.txt" file), but obviously with that the keyboard attached to Pi stops working after reboot (because of gadget mode) and still no network device.

What am I missing? Thank you very much in advance.

Hi,

I also tried to get this running, but I had the same problem as juliannojungle.

But I recognized in some other thread, that "net-usb-KERNEL.tcz" has to be loaded and installed.
If I manually try to do "tce-load -i net-usb-KERNEL.tcz" eth0 appears and the module r8152 is loaded.
After a reboot, eth0 is gone again.

So I added the line "net-usb-KERNEL.tcz" in "/mnt/mmcblk0p2/tce/onboot.lst" instead of "net-usb-4.9.22-piCore.tcz".
After a reboot, it works!

Maybe you could try this also.
Best regards
Gerhard

I think I did not make myself clear. Sorry for that.
What I meant wasn't to connect an USB network adapter to the Pi, but just plug the Pi on computer's USB and SSH it.

I've tried the "tce-load -i net-usb-KERNEL.tcz" and still didn't get the usb0 on ifconfig.

Tried the following as well: https://gist.github.com/chr15m/84d7f4b0eba45102848a76ac6b47b449
That is:
Code: [Select]
tce-load -wi net-usb-4.9.22-piCore-v7
modprobe cdc_ether
modprobe usbnet
ifconfig -a
ifconfig usb0 up
sudo /sbin/udhcpc -b -i usb0 -x hostname:$HOSTNAME -p /var/run/udhcpc.usb0.pid
but got stuck on "modprobe usbnet", with message: "modprobe: module usbnet not found in modules.dep"

Really have no idea on what to do. :/

I see. Completely different story. Sorry.

There is an answer in the thread, that you mentioned:
Quote
For rpi zero use net-usb-4.9.22-piCore from http://repo.tinycorelinux.net/9.x/armv6/tcz/, as it's armv6, not armv7.

Does this help?
