Why is there no CorePlus 64?
« on: September 05, 2018, 10:20:25 AM »
I'm trying to get a 64bit thing going like CorePlus, which is what I want (Install, boot into X). but there doesn't seem to be any simple way to do this on a 64Bit system?

I've installed TinyCorePure64... Then what to get X working?

I'm guessing, but it's likely the same packages that are in the tce directory of a CorePlus.

So I'd take a look at them, & then download the same packages from the 64bit repos.

Edit: Maybe the onboot.lst is a better option to see which .tcz are needed.

AMD, ARM, & Intel.

Well for your average package, that is probably pretty easy. But X seems rather complicated. There's Xorg and XFree86, all the various extensions, etc.

I tried installing xfbdev & ran startx, it bombed in waitforX
I tried installing xorg-server & ran startx, it bombed in waitforX also.

You need to install Xorg using tce-ab > search > Xorg or tce-load -w -i Xorg-7.7.tcz commands to install correctly all dependencies, then startx command

Coreplus  is only an installer version with various boot options for x86, what you really need is tinycore-current
First install x86 version of tinycore. After setting up as desired adapt the the installed system to x86_64

Moving ahead with a working corepure64 system which boots to the command line only.. you’ll first need to edit the onboot.lst file to remove any Xfbdev, Xvesa entries

Then from the command line use tce-ab command (as above) to search and install the current version of Xorg

Then load Xorg
tce-load -I Xorg-7.7
startx

I should point out that this is just one of many ways to accomplish same result, it’s my recommended method with the minimal of extensions installed.

Or you can use TinyCorePure64-current.iso as the source and install with tc-install/tc-install-GUI.
The installer will copy the extensions from the iso.

tc-install.sh:
Code: [Select]
sudo tc-install.sh
i --> iso
/path/to/TinyCorePure64-current.iso
... follow the remaining instructions

tc-install-GUI:
Code: [Select]
mkdir -p /mnt/sr0
sudo mount /path/to/TinyCorePure64-current.iso /mnt/sr0
run the GUI program.
