  So TC64 boots & runs OK, but I need to install Wifi.
First trace the firmware via: dmesg | grep <keyWord>

Are you asking what word to grep for?

Please show output of this instead
Code: [Select]
dmesg | tail -10
We're looking for the name of the firmware file the wireless driver is failing to load


You may have shown this before but I couldn't find it easily so, please show output of
(you may need to load pciutils.tcz first, but then)
Code: [Select]
lspci -v | grep -A 8 'Network'

While you there, please show ouput of
Code: [Select]
showbootcodes

This is not a REPLY. Like all "web-based" apps this is crap!
2019 Aug 24. I'm writing this from the problematic:WinTelLockoutUEFI
laptop, which has been running for several days..
AFAIR I got core booted OK [which is 32 bit with no GUI ?] and this
is TC64, which I hacked [possibly using some of my *.tcz of Ver7.2].
It still needs to be cleaned up to proper V10.0

opera-12 is better than on Vers7.2, without the font-tearing.
BTW I didn't D/L ver10's opera-12.
 # version == 10.0
 # uname -a == Linux box 4.19.10-tinycore64 #1999 SMP \
                Tue Dec 18 15:18:54 UTC 2018 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Until I get wifi working here, I must manually transfer <wgotS>
from the TC7.2 laptop.
A major problem is that TC's *CORE ASSUMPTION*: that we all have
ethernet, is not valid.

OK: Wifi installation - new laptop.
