Latest 10Beta4a, kernel 4.14.41 seems to work on all the Pi's I have tried so far, B+, 2B, 3B, 3B+.

Wanted to stress test it further by sticking a Desktop on it but no TC in tcz list yet.

Midnight Commander still has the mouse left/middle button clicks generating escape codes issues.

Sorry Bela, I missed you saying zswap.  We only use zram.  I've not used zswap with piCore in a long time.

Hi Paul,

no problem. I just put beta5a to the server with 4.14.42 kernel. Changed to lz4/zfold3 and made test compiling large applications. Do not get swap write error when using swap file, only randomly with a swap partition but much elss now than before. It looks like a local issue, so this setup and kernel is the final one.

Any estimate on when this new version that works on Pi 3B+ will be officially released and available?

Is the latest beta version publicly available from somewhere?

Thanks,
Kim

After some searching I hound it here http://tinycorelinux.net/10.x/  (sorry I can't see how to make that a link).

I have been using it extensively for the last few weeks on a RPi3 and 3+. By default it has USB FIQ turned off that apparently can give USB problems, - Can anyone comment on what the problems are?. I never seen any, but I have not stress it, only using a keyboard, memory stick and wired network for ssh.

If FIQ is turned on it makes USB reliable but crashes on boot if an HDMI monitor is attached. As I run headless I have now turned it on.

There are not many extensions available, any copied from PiCore9 that use encryption will not run due to an updated library, so expect to spend some time building extensions. I now have the WiFi and everything I need running.

I can't comment on timescales but I expect that Bela is waiting for a fix to the underlying Raspbian problem.

Tim.

@Tim Main reason is lack of time at the moment due to job load.
