You mean the upstream modules are buggy?

Could we add LZMA support to busybox? I've come across a number of RPM's that rpm2cpio can't process.

I'll look at enabling lzma in busybox for the next rc release - it's not certain that this will enable it in busybox rpm2cpio...

subject to the answer to curaga's question, I'd go for updating the wireless modules.

Loading any of the RTLWIFI modules caused the machine to reboot immediately..    This error was fixed in a recent submission (6 to 8 months ago) and applies to all RTLWIFI modules. 

Fixed RTLWIFI modules can be found in:
rtlwifi-4.8.17-tinycore.tcz &
rtlwifi-4.8.17-tinycore64.tcz

Sources from git  https://github.com/lwfinger/rtlwifi_new

The above extensions were a temporary resolution and provide a standalone replacement for wireless-4.8.17-tinycore extensions which were removed from wireless-tools dep file during running of rtlwifi-4.8.17-tinycore.tcz startup script.

Ideally, the rtlwifi modules within wireless-4.8.17-tinycore need replacing with modules from rtlwifi-4.8.17-tinycore, how would you like to proceed?

If they're that buggy, sure, replace them.
