Hi Paul.

It seems I'm an idiot enabled by alphanumeric sorting :)

In the browser 12b is a lower value than 5a!

I'll update now :)

If so, where would i find the actual files?

http://tinycorelinux.net/9.x/armv7/tcz/ appears to be a list

using a mirror with ftp access @ distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux its easy to see the dir layout !

Code: [Select]
lftp -e "ls;exit" ftp://distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux/9.x/x86/tcz/
eg
Code: [Select]
$ svr_lst=$( lftp -e "ls;exit" ftp://distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux/9.x/x86/tcz/ )#cd ok, cwd=/tinycorelinux/9.x/x86/tcz
Code: [Select]
$ echo "$svr_lst" | grep -e "lftp"

I think I'm getting there!

hostapd from 9.x expects usr/local/lib/libssl.so.1.0.0
but I have installed OpenSSL from 10.x which provides usr/local/lib/libssl.so.1.1

will symlinking these cause very bad things to happen (expect so!)

if so, how do I uninstall OpenSSL (10.x) so I can install (9.x), is it as simple as writing the 9.x file over tce/optional/openssl.tcz?

To upgrade (or downgrade) extensions with the same name:

* create a folder named tce/optional/upgrade
* copy extension_name.tcz{,.dep,.md5.txt} to that folder
* reboot

Cool. Unfortunatly i seems I need 1.1 as well as 1.0 because wpa_passphrase and ssh needs it

I'm a bad man.

I've put both old and new in onboot.lst

This appears to work, but they both provide some files with the same name, I assume that the later of the two overlays the earlier?

You asked in your OP about Beta Software.   And this is what you are facing.  I would recommend against trying to keep openssl 1.1 and 1.0 on your system, you are going to run into problems.

Either wait for hostapd that I submitted to get on the repo, or build it yourself.

Thanks Paul.

I'm finding Tinycore Linux equally frustrating and refreshing, and I get that is partially because I'm using a beta version because I am forced to by using current PI hardware.

Getting the system to do what I want is far easier without the hundreds of scripts "helping" out that you get with thicker distributions - my terrible experience with rasprian UDEV rules, and trying to switch between AP and normal mode works like a dream on TCL.

But while i am no newbie to linux and programming, i'm still trying to get my head round how to put things together - I'm not sure where I'd even start on building missing pieces.
