Also, I cannot seem to even create an smb.conf.  Even using "sudo" I get "-sh: can't create sbm.conf: Permission denied"

Please post the command-line you're trying.

I tried to create a file with the editor application in the GUI and that failed so I also tried the following (to create the first line of the file) and it failed with "-sh: can't create sbm.conf: Permission denied"

sudo echo [global] > sbm.conf

sudo echo [global] > sbm.conf

Redirections don't work that way
You should do it this way:
Code: [Select]
sudo sh -c 'echo [global] > sbm.conf'
Or switching to superuser:
Code: [Select]
$ sudo su
# echo [global] > sbm.conf

Thanks. I clearly have a kindergarten level working knowledge of Linux! I'm just trying to set up a platform so I can focus on developing my actual application but its a real barrier at every turn.

Now once I create this .conf file do I also need to go through the filetool process as well so I don't lose it?

If it's not in /home or /opt; then yes, you'll have to add it to /opt/.filetool.lst for backup.  ;)

By the way, probably just a typo in your post but you want filename smb.conf, not sbm.conf.

Do you need to use PiCore during development, rather than one of the "standard" Pi OSes such as Raspbian?

PiCore has some unique features - for my projects, it is the ability to load everything required from SD card into RAM, to make it more resilient to unexpected loss of power.  But that characteristic comes at a cost, such as having to remember to persist changes, package management being completely different, and the filesystem layout being a bit different to Raspbian.

I don't know what your app is, but could you develop it in Raspbian, then switch to PiCore at the deployment stage?

My app is a wireless IoT wildlife camera. It is actually already mostly developed on Raspian / DietPi, although I have a backlog of refinements to make.  As far as the OS I am trying to optimize boot time (DietPi is nearly 30 sec) and increase reliability (i've seen unexplained SD corruption once already with DietPi).

I need to get python set up with multiple packages that are not available as existing TC extensions and I want to setup Samba share for convenience during development (e.g. editing python script from my Windows PC, etc.)

I'm using a Pi Zero W, and I haven't timed the bootup time, but I don't think it's significantly quicker than that.  Possibly slower.  The package system makes the system flexible but slows down the boot time.

I need to get python set up with multiple packages that are not available as existing TC extensions and I want to setup Samba share for convenience during development (e.g. editing python script from my Windows PC, etc.)

TC extensions are fairly easy to build if a standard package doesn't provide what you need, but if you have to build your own then you take on the maintenance of those packages as well (e.g. they may need updating to work with a newer version of PiCore).

If the samba share does work out, you could edit files on your PC and then scp or rsync updates onto the Pi (via ssh, so it doesn't need anything special on the Pi).

I got samba working thanks to your awesome instructions.

I am also using pi zero and my boot time is in the 15-20 sec range per dmesg...

I am also using pi zero and my boot time is in the 15-20 sec range per dmesg...

I have /mnt/mmcblk0p2/tce/copy2fs.flg so that all extensions are loaded into RAM at boot, and then the SD card partition gets unmounted.  Seems safer, but that adds to boot up time.  onboot.lst contains:

Code: [Select]

mc.tcz
openssh.tcz

which receives recordings from a networked audio recorder installed in the sound desk at the church I attend, processes them and uploads the results to an FTP site for linking into the church website.  This is the one I needed Samba for, as the network recorder only knows how to upload to a Windows share.

You don't need openssl.tcz in the lists below as it is a recursive dep of one or more of the other extensions.

Which list are you referring to?  I can't see openssl.tcz in any of them...

Loading extensions for Python + all the modules my app needs will undoubtedly add a lot more time to boot, but I should be able to speed things back up by this technique: http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,20711.msg129294/topicseen.html#msg129294 to load wifi, ssh, samba etc. after my app is up and running

In another thread (http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,20709.msg129945.html#msg129945), someone brought my attention to a script that can build a single extension file from all the extensions you're using, which loads quicker and uses less memory.  I haven't tried it yet, but I think it may be of use to you too.
