Need help with finding Tiny Core script
« on: August 10, 2018, 03:15:39 PM »
Hi all!

I'm looking for a way to find the TinyCore script for my operating system. I am not great at programming, so I need a source to get me started.

Thanks!  ;D

(P.S, please notify me if i'm not allowed to copy the script. im new to the website.)

Hi Coffeebean12
Are you looking for the startup script? That would be  /etc/init.d/tc-config.  That script also relies on functions supplied
by  /etc/init.d/tc-functions.

Hi Coffeebean12
It's still not clear what you want. Bootable ISOs can be found here:
http://tinycorelinux.net/9.x/x86/release/
If you want the individual pieces they can be found here:
http://tinycorelinux.net/9.x/x86/release/distribution_files/
vmlinuz is the kernel, core.gz is base file system, and modules.gz are drivers.

Please check the Core concepts and the wiki pages to get an idea of the same, from http://tinycorelinux.net/

Hi Coffeebean12
It's still not clear what you are trying to achieve. Tinycore is slightly different in operation from other Linux distros. Maybe this
book will be of some help:

If I am not wrong, OP may be looking for Linux-From-Scratch type of code related to Tinycore part,
 ... or may be all those scripts which constitures boot process, creating file-system and partitions etc tasks !  :)

Rich is really good at deciphering the point from obscure questions and  if he can't figure out what the OP is asking then there's not much chance of being able to help..

I'm guessing the OP is referring to the boot process, so maybe he can start here http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/wiki:the_boot_process

There used to be a chart that might help the OP by Brian Smith, but I'm unable to find it at present.
ok I found it  http://tinycorelinux.net/architecture.html

That's because I majored in gibberish with a minor in gobbledygook. ;D

I do'nt think , OP will be happy with only the boot process. Linux boot processes are readily available on net. He has specifically said : ..
