That's a "-w" not a "-i"

Hi  Might be helpful to show the output of the command "tce-status -i" so we can see what's actually loaded..  if you hadn't done that already..

coreplayer2 :: Thanks. Will cull through the info shortly. After reading several posts, I came across the recommendation for core2usb. I followed the instructions at https://sourceforge.net/p/core2usb/wiki/Home/

Usage

Its usage is easy and straight forward.
..

Yes but it's also not the Official installer (which is provided in tinycoreplus.iso), while core2usb should work there are sometimes fatal issues when reading a blank USB when used in Windows (still to be resolved I guess).   Therefore the Official installer is Highly recommended and is the only supported installer and it's also simple to use..  Just follow the instructions in the Core Book.


Unfortunately the most complicated and difficult methods that almost always fail are the ones folks seem to come up with on their own..

coreplayer2: thanks for your 2 replies
#1 I did post the output of Juanito's command. Want to finish up with Juanito before I try anything else.
#2 I did a quick cull of Chap 2 in the book, which I have yet to read. As I do not have a cd/dvd drive on any of my laptops, it looks like I will have to download the "official installer" from the command line and manually build a usb from the USB-HDD option. Is that how you see things?


With that said, it may help me get an instance of tinycore up and operational. However, I have no idea how to troubleshoot when things go South. Perhaps, that will come with time ...

Again, thanks for your help.

tce-load -w Xvesa Xprogs flwm aterm wbar
   this command worked

Good - "tce-load -w" downloads the extensions

Next you need "tce-load -i" to install them...

Also, please use a supported installer. Third-party installers may not work.

curaga: just finished, successfully, Juanito' recommendations. core2usb, cited in the book, did not work. Going to try the "official method" shortly.

Juanito : your recommendations worked. thanks!

    tce-load -i Xvesa Xprogs flwm aterm wbar
    tce-load -w Xvesa Xprogs flwm aterm wbar
    xsetup.sh
    startx

With this behind me, I am going to try the "official installer" and, a recommendation by patrikg.
Need to figure out (1) the proper mouse selection (xsetup.sh) and how to save the system changes or write a .sh for every boot.
Thank you again.
