I want to set up wifi
« on: March 08, 2019, 11:07:39 PM »
Hello
I'm using tinycore64, but I don't have a wired network, I read "setting up wifi"http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/wiki:setting_up_wifi
And decided to install wicd-1.7.4.tar.gz(https://launchpad.net/wicd/+download) via usb, successfully extracted it
Code: [Select]
cd directory
tar -xvf wicd-1.7.4.tar.gz
But when I ran the command line:
Code: [Select]
sudo wicd-startThe "no found wicd" notification system.
I think it is not the "wicd.tcz" format or something else that I haven't insstalled
Please help me or guide me to use another tool.

There is a wicd extension in the CorePure64 repo, but wicd is quite old.

You might be better off using the tinycore wifi extension.

If you do not have access to a wired network, you will need to use a different machine to download the required extensions and copy them to your machine using a usb stick or similar.

You will need all of the extensions listed in:

http://repo.tinycorelinux.net/10.x/x86_64/tcz/wifi.tcz.tree

Note that you will need the files ending in tcz, tcz.dep and tcz.md5.txt, i.e.

http://repo.tinycorelinux.net/10.x/x86_64/tcz/wifi.tcz
http://repo.tinycorelinux.net/10.x/x86_64/tcz/wifi.tcz.dep
http://repo.tinycorelinux.net/10.x/x86_64/tcz/wifi.tcz.md5.txt
