Thank you!

I'm still blown away by piCore and how much fun (and learning) I'm getting out of it.

Hi!

Thank you for this release.
I cannot find kernel sources and modules under http://tinycorelinux.net/9.x/armv7/releases/RPi/src/kernel/ (the directory is empty). Could you please fix that?
Thank you

Thomas

Hi

piCore looks like a nice project.

I would like to contribute or help. i am used to linuxfromscratch so i could run a compiler. Now i am new to raspberrypi. Maybe i could do something useful to the project.

Is there a build stack or some kind of build enviroment or something like that, someone could use to contribute?

I would like to learn a bit more about the source code and how to compile the OS.
Is there a place I can download the whole source code in a container?

Is there any special reason why there is no usb-serial package/support in for that kernel?
