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.

Hi Tim,

I've tried to get WiFi to work on Pi 3B+ with Beta5a but I can't get wlan0 interface to show up (apart from eth0 and lo).  I've loaded firmware-rpi3-wireless.tcz and wifi.tcz (+ dependencies) from 9.x branch but perhaps they are incompatible as you mentioned earlier.

Any tips on which particular extensions need recompiling or would you be willing to share the extension that work?

Thanks,
Kim

I will uploaded to google drive all the tcz you need.
Forum rules apparently forbid publicly sharing tcz so I will send you a PM with the link.

It contains theses tczI have listed the source as far as I remember - I don't guarantee it as correct
I am not an expert at producing tcz so they are probably not as small as could be but for me they work.
Code: [Select]
firmware-rpi3b-plus-wireless.tcz                  files copied from raspbian
libiw.tcz                                                        copied from 9.0.3
libnl.tcz                                                        copied from 9.0.3
wifi.tcz                                                         copied from 9.0.3
wireless-4.14.42-piCore-v7.tcz                   modules built from source on ubuntu laptop
wireless_tools.tcz                                        copied from 9.0.3
wpa_supplicant.tcz                                      built from source PM if you want my build directory

To install
Untar
copy all files to tce/optional
add to onboot.lst
    wireless-4.14.42-piCore-v7.tcz   
   wifi.tcz
install readline.tcz in the usual way
reboot
keep fingers crossed
run wifi.sh

post back if it works

Bela,

Do you still have the new rpi firmware packages I submitted a while back?

Has anyone built tcz packages for ntfs-3g and its dependencies (NTFS filesystem support) compatible with 10beta5a?

I presume ntfs-3g and fuse might work straight from 9.x branch but filesystems-KERNEL and raid-dm-KERNEL needs rebuilding with matching kernel version.

So I'm looking for atleast these two:

raid-dm-4.14.42-piCore-v7.tcz
filesystems-4.14.42-piCore-v7.tcz

Thanks for the beta it works well on my Pi 3B+ with the latest version.

I couldn't find the compiletc extension available for 10.x which I need for the make command. I have installed gcc already.

thanks for testing. I see these random boot issues also, need some more investigation.

This commit appears to fix the boot problem when the FIQ is enabled.

https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/commit/e0d2b2b6df54f175dc73eb294976e756fa68d57d

We have tested it in our builds, and have over 5000 reboots with no kernel panics.
