New to Tiny Core
« on: November 06, 2018, 02:34:49 AM »
I recently learned about Tiny Core and it looks great for my well kinda ancient laptop, ASUS X56T. However after making a bootable USB with the Tiny core 9.0 iso (x86 version) I get the command line, while I thought it's supposed to have a graphical interface. Did I choose the wrong version? Or do you always start with a command line? And if so how do I get to the graphical interface.

How did you create the bootable usb stick?

With the Yumi-2.0.5.8 multiboot UUI https://www.pendrivelinux.com/yumi-multiboot-usb-creator/ and the TinyCore-9.0 iso file

Third-party installers often cause that. If you don't want to burn a cd, you could attach the stick to a VM, boot the CorePlus CD in that VM, and install to the stick there. There's also many ways to edit the install the third-party installer made, if you search the forum.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

I have found that Yumi doesn’t work as expected with TinyCore

However, the Option 2 guide using Rufus portable works great

Thanks, Rufus works... now to figure out the rest. Thank you. Like how to install it to my HDD, I can't seem to find any install options at all.

If you've created a bootable usb stick, you can use the tc-install extension to install to a hard disk.

As you can tell I'm such a noob at this, but learning thankfully in this field is fun. So for web browsers....Not liking Firefox with them getting into political stuff. So what others would be usable? Brave, Palemoon, Waterfox(ubuntu 18.04 on my main rig hates it),  Qupzilla?

If you use the apps gui "tags" function and enter "browser", you'll get a list of the available web browser extensions.

The fifth browser was made with tinycore in mind.

I only got a list of three, but I found both Palemoon and Opera, that will work just fine. Is it possible to install Discord? Then it would be complete.

I'm not sure how you got a list of three:
Code: [Select]
tce - Tiny Core Extension browser

         1. chromium-browser.tcz
         2. elinks-doc.tcz
         3. elinks-locale.tcz
         4. elinks.tcz
         5. epiphany.tcz
         6. fifth.tcz
         7. firefox-ESR.tcz
         8. firefox-nightly.tcz
         9. links.tcz
        10. midori.tcz
        11. opera-12.tcz
        12. otter-browser.tcz
        13. palemoon.tcz
        14. webkit-dev.tcz
        15. webkit-gir.tcz

Enter selection ( 1 - 18 ) or (q)uit, (n)ext, (p)revious: :
..I make that about ten  ;)

Anyway, the beauty of tinycore is that it is very hard to break anything that cannot be cured with a reboot - so go ahead and try discord and see what happens

Thanks, though I can't find discord in the app list, is it OK to get it from the website?
