coreplus 8.2
« on: September 22, 2017, 07:14:58 PM »
 
   hi tinycore team and everyone

   i am trying out coreplus 8.2 on an acer aspire E 17 laptop 

   most stuff works great 
   
   i notice when you download tcc
   only the deps are loaded not tcc itself

   i have an odd problem with the sound
   some videos will play  ( the one that will is an flv )
   most will not 
 
   i have a problem with the laptop mouse pad 
   it only has 1 button
   no left or right buttons
   but a usb mouse is recognized correctly
   
   will keep playing
   and report my experiences

   thanks everyone for this great distro
   tinycore is by far the best designed linux distro

there was an error in the tcc dep file - it has been corrected now - thanks for reporting this.

I see 3.4gb ram out of 4gb on a 16gb machine, which sounds about right...

   thanks tcc download works now

   as to sound
   i loaded latest firefox
   and all the alsa stuff
   and pulseaudio

   and alsa mixer
   turned on alsa master which helped

   still doesn't play sound for all the videos in the browser
   no youtube or news videos
   but plays a lot of them

   i will keep playing and post

PulseAudio should work, however I simply use apulse which avoids pulseaudio completely, you will of course need alsa working and possibly flash installed to listen to Youtube.
a script to download and install apulse extension can be obtained from
http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,21268.msg132892.html#msg132892

PS. I haven't yet tested this script with the recent busybox update..

Usually I'd do:
Code: [Select]
tce-load -i alsa-config
tce-load -i alsa
alsactrl init
aplay /usr/local/share/sounds/alsa/Noise.wav

It's recommended to load alsa-config before alsa.  :)

thanks for all the help

coreplayer2
used your script
seemed to compile fine
but no change
does it place a binary in firefox
i couldn't find anything to load in apps

loaded alsa-config
then alsa
then alsamixergui and unmuted the master
vlc will play the downloaded files with sound
and some files have sound in firefox
but not all sites or youtube 

when i type in alsactrl init
it says alsactrl not found 

anyway i will chug along
since videos play with sound in vlc and some in the browser
it must be some browser plug in missing
i guess

this is the first time i put tinycore on this computer
looks beautiful
awesome

Oops!
Typo.

Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ alsactl init
Found hardware: "HDA-Intel" "VIA VT1708S" "HDA:11060397,10438346,00100000" "0x1043" "0x8346"

The script creates an " apulse.tcz " extension which requires loading onboot and you should rfind it in APPS > Maintenance > Onboot,  load only
alsa-config.tcz (if required)
alsa.tcz
apulse
flash.tcz
firefox.tcz

Apulse does not replace any firefox component.   Temporarily (due AIUI to a lack of Mozilla developers familiar with alsa) Firefox requires a pulseaudio input to pipe audio through to alsa.   Apulse provides compatible PulseAudio libraries (with many less features and overhead of pulseaudio) between applications like Firefox and ALSA.  This extension is created with firefox in mind, but may work with other apps..?  If you need pulseaudio for other audio applications I'd advise the full pulseaudio extension instead.

In practice I often find the use of "YouTube Flash-HTML" plugin to switch between flash or HTML5 players resolves sound redirection with youtube in firefox.
I use all of the above in all TC-7 & TC-8 versions daily, but occasionally I find a reboot is required to achieve sound
good luck

Yay, found a missing ".tcz" (apulse). I'm watching you. :p

Nah, I just don't wont people to get confused. Even though that's a typo the finder might keep; better save than sorry.
Every Tinycore extension (currently) has the  .tcz  file name extension.
Download a copy and keep it handy: Core book ;)
