piCore-8.1 released
« on: January 01, 2017, 04:20:06 AM »
Team Tiny Core is pleased to announce the immediate availability of piCore-8.1 Changes compared to version 8.0:

* kernel 4.4.39
* gcc 6.3.0
* util-linux 2.29
* BusyBox  1.25.1
* RPi firmware 2016.12.15

Preinstalled extensions synced to repository. Changes:

* openssl now using ca-certificates.tcz with latest root certificates
* openssh startup fixed, keys are not regenerated if they are in backup

Download location:

http://tinycorelinux.net/8.x/armv6/releases/RPi/

There is only one SD card image, it supports all armv6 and armv7 RPi boards!

Please read README and don't forget to expand mmcblk0p2 partition according to your needs to make room for persistent data and installed applications.

If you need the basic TC GUI, install TC.tcz from the repository.

Well, this has gone without much fanfare.   I updated my dev rpi2 to 8.1 and it seems just fine.

You might want to make a note that the 8.1 image is required for the new RPI2B rev 1.2 board that was release in Q4 of 2016.

Paul,

not really, the Rev1.2 RPi2B requires only firmware update, it works with piCore 7.x too.

I said image.   Most users wouldn't know how to upgrade firmware on an image that they had.

I am getting following when trying to install compile.tcz

Downloading: gcc_libs.tcz
Connecting to repo.tinycorelinux.net (89.22.99.37:80)
wget: server returned error: HTTP/1.1 416 Requested Range Not Satisfiable
gcc_libs.tcz: FAILED
md5sum: WARNING: 1 of 1 computed checksums did NOT match
Error on gcc_libs.tcz
 compiletc.tcz

What might be the problem?

How much free space you have on mmcblk0p2?

Have seen this before Bela. :)
I think you need to add some run once script to ask if the user want's to expand and reboot.
Or maybe to run once cat readme

Why the Hell is it so difficult to read README?

Because we are male in gender.   lol.

I thought that current versions of busybox wget would say no space left on target drive if it is out of space.   Can't say I've ever seen a HTTP 416 error.

Problem was not related to the not partition size. I was trying to update from 8.0 by replacing files on mmcblk0p1, and probably there was some wrong md5 file left in tce folder on mmcblk0p2. After removing it I loaded compile.tzc succesfully.
Sorry for causing havoc.

Testing now SD card with fresh 8.1 and there are some issues.
When I run

 sudo fdisk -u /dev/mmcblk0

 I am getting message

        Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks  Id System
/dev/mmcblk0p1            8192       69631       30720   c Win95 FAT32 (LBA)
Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary
/dev/mmcblk0p2           69648      102399       16376  83 Linux
Partition 2 does not end on cylinder boundary

I am using MacOSX and for some reason second Linux partition is not visible (I have ext2/3/4 driver installed on my system). All other SD images (up to 8.0) when created have second partition visible. The error above might be causing this problem.

Other diffrence from 8.0 and all others is that now filetool.sh require sudo permissions. If I execute just filetool.sh -b I am getting errors:

filetool.sh -b
/usr/bin/filetool.sh: line 149: can't create /etc/sysconfig/backup_device: Permission denied
Backing up files to /mnt/mmcblk0p2/tce/mydata.tgz/
Done.
/usr/bin/filetool.sh: line 188: can't create /etc/sysconfig/backup_device: Permission denied

Have to use
sudo filetool.sh -b
