Code: [Select]
$ sudo ln -s /lib/modules/4.14.10-tinycore/build /path-to-source/linux-4.14.10
..note that you will also have to prepare the kernel source:
Code: [Select]
$ cd linux-4.14.10

$ make mrproper
$ cp config-4.14.10-tinycore .config
$ make oldconfig
$ make prepare
$ make modules_prepare

$ gunzip Module.symvers-4.14.10-tinycore.gz
$ cp Module.symvers-4.14.10-tinycore Module.symvers
$ make SUBDIRS=scripts/mod

I am working on compiling the new rtl driver from git. I have submitted my problem with the make command in my previous post. Please help me pass that point.

 I think I am getting advise regarding two different routes to solving my problem and because I am not expert I can't tell the difference well between the two strategies. Please stick to my git approach first and let me untangle it.

Juanito has already compiled the driver for the repo.  Simply install the firmware extension first then driver extension then WiFi extension, all to OnBoot.lst. Not OnDemand!! 
Then run Sudo WiFi.sh  or select the WiFi icon

Thank you for clarifying. From your post:

1) Simply install the firmware extension (how?...)
2) then driver extension (how?...)
3) WiFi extension, (how?...)
4) all to OnBoot.lst (how?...)

Hi h2sammo
I'm having trouble loading firmware-rtlwifi. I found it in the apps/ondemand maintenance menu and added it to the ondemand list. However, it doesn't show in apps/load locally list.
Go to the the  apps/ondemand maintenance menu  and click on  firmware-rtlwifi.  Then click on  Delete Item from list.

Now go to  apps/onboot maintenance menu  and click on  firmware-rtlwifi.  Then click on  Add Item.

Next go to  apps/cloud/browse.
In the  search  field enter  wireless  and hit enter. Select  wireless-rtl8822be-4.14.10-tinycore.tcz  and click go.
In the  search  field enter  wifi  and hit enter. Select  wifi.tcz  and click go.

Now open your  onboot.lst  file. You can find it under  /etc/sysconfig/tcedir.
Find the following 3 lines and move them to the top of the file in this order:
Code: [Select]
firmware-rtlwifi.tcz
wireless-rtl8822be-4.14.10-tinycore.tcz
wifi.tcz

Save the file and reboot the machine.

kernel modules need to be compiled for the specific kernel version in use

btw, from coreplus base install there is no wireless-4.19.10-tinycore.tcz extension available so wifi.tcz and ndiswrapper.tcz cannot load since they depend on it. Is there a way i can search for these extensions and download them with an internet browser instead of the apps app? Since i cannot connect to wifi when i boot core10. maybe i can search and download what I am missing when i boot core9.0 and cp the extensions into the ondemand folder in tce10.0.
Thank you for your help!

The required extension should be available in the coreplus CD/ISO, no?

Sure, directly using a browser from the download section of this website

or use wget command and the address from the above download section

cp the extensions into the ondemand folder in tce10.0.
Please NOTE:  extensions are installed into the “..tce/optional” directory not “ondemand”

I just checked the CorePlus-10.0.iso and found /cde/optional/wireless-4.19.10-tinycore.tcz is present..
