tce-load failing
« on: January 11, 2019, 08:13:39 AM »
I am developing a custom boot stick based on TC so I am rebooting it A LOT.

It seems like every time I boot into TC and want to run tce-load it fails silently. Then I begin poking around and pinging different servers and eventually I do something that convinces tce-load to work.

But I have not found a consistent trick that makes this happen. Does any one have any suggestions?

Here is ifconfig:

Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ ifconfig
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:0D:B9:49:55:84
          inet addr:192.168.140.103  Bcast:192.168.140.255  Mask:255.255.255.0
          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:21275 errors:0 dropped:1649 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:127 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
          RX bytes:2565383 (2.4 MiB)  TX bytes:9548 (9.3 KiB)
          Memory:fe500000-fe51ffff

and here are my current ping results:

Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ ping repo.tinycorelinux.net
PING repo.tinycorelinux.net (89.22.99.37): 56 data bytes
^C

round-trip min/avg/max = 32.965/34.013/35.273 ms
tc@box:~$

I have replaced http://repo.tinycorelinux.net in my /opt/tcemirror file with http://distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux/ because today repo.tinycorelinux.net appears to be down.

Oops - I forgot that I had had to wipe and reformat my USB stick, so it's UUID changed...  :-[

The main repo blocks pings as part of the port scanning protection. It likely marked you as an intruder and blocked your connections for a minute or two.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.
