Paul Your comments are very much appreciated, it is a massive help.

 If you could sent your busybox config , that would be great. I will grab a few things from the github link. I have already grabbed all the tcz from your repo, I will include the ones that are appropriate.

One recent development, on single core boards, I've was running into issues with loop mount failures during tce-load....mainly loading large dependency chains like compiletc.  I never saw this on multicore boards.

Adding max_loop=100 to the command line solved the problem( I only needed 75 loop devices).....but the loop devices are supposed to be created dynamically.  I updated libmount on the initrd, and that also solved the problem.

Is this release suitable for Pi 4B ?
Just tried 'piCore-9.0.3.img' on Pi4B  and it didn't boot up. The  1GB sd (!) boots up without problem on Pi 3B.

If you only have 2 kernels on your card, it won't, the RPi4B needs a different kernel, with an added 'l' in its name.

I'm not sure if they have compiled one yet, but they were talking about it a few posts back.
AMD, ARM, & Intel.

No it was released before the Pi4B was available.

Both myself and Paul_123 have piCore booting on a pi4B, but a release is a few weeks away.

It should work on all Pi up to the Pi3B+. I am not sure about the 3A+ but I would expect it to be OK.

I have tested it on
Pi Model B
Pi 2 Model B
Pi 3 model B
Pi 3 Model B Plus
Compute Module 3

I have updated the Repo and copied all extensions needed to get the GUI working from (.x to 10.x

So to get the GUI working

Install PiCore10.1Beta1a from here http://timjanes.uk/piCore/10.x/armv7/test_releases/RPi/

tce-load -wi TC.tcz

startx or reboot.

OK thanks...

i made a post about playing videos and playing streaming videos on the Raspberry pi.

It is the Pi section.  Hope it works (even on Pi ZERO W and that people can enjoy multimedia
easily.

Vivaldi browser.

maybe by using..... deb2tcz....tool....?

I have given Vivaldi a try. I used this technique

https://help.vivaldi.com/article/installing-linux-snapshots-on-non-deb-rpm-distributions/

Then added the needed shared libraries to get it to run. And it basically works, but I cannot select the top bar or border and I have found no way to resize or move the window. There are also various error messages in the console window.

I have no idea how to proceed to get this window resize working, sot Anybody got any suggestions?

I can post instructions to get as far as I have, all needed tcz are in the 10.1beata1a repo.

Tim,

Thanks so much for trying Vivaldi on an RPi......because i don't really know what other
modern browsers the TCL ARM repo offers for pi?.....

(the TCL x86 repo only has FF modern browser which isn't great.....although corepure x86_64 bit..... has Chromium 66)

I mean there is a chance that Vivaldi ARM could run on Pi Zero.....then?

As for window resizing....i have no idea...... but it wouldn't bother me that much......(as such)

i was also wondering if Https video streams work for you on Arm Pi using "FFPLAY" tool?.......streams from say invidio.us....?

>ffplay -i https://The video stream

thanks Tim.......maybe Vivaldi modern browser will appear in the ARM Rpi repo at some point?


Vince

Ps.....yes Tim, the instructions (if not too involved) would be useful for installing ARM Vivaldi on picore Rpi.

I suppose if you shared those error messages, someone might be able to help you out.

Here is how to try vivaldi. In my view it is not really usable as  it cannot be resized or even maximized. The console gives errors about html5, flash, missing fonts and various other warnings. I suspect that most of these can be fixed, but I am stumped with the resize issue.

Install 10.1beta1a ( Link at the start of this thread), install the following tcz

Code: [Select]
tce-load -wi TC.tcz
tce-load -wi libmount.tcz
tce-load -wi libXcomposite.tcz
tce-load -wi libXi.tcz
tce-load -wi libXtst.tcz
tce-load -wi nss.tcz
tce-load -wi libcups.tcz
tce-load -wi libXScrnSaver.tcz
tce-load -wi libXrandr.tcz
tce-load -wi alsa.tcz
tce-load -wi atk.tcz
tce-load -wi at-spi2-atk.tcz
tce-load -wi pango.tcz
tce-load -wi gtk3.tcz
tce-load -wi p11-kit.tcz
tce-load -wi wget.tcz
tce-load -wi bash.tcz


start dbus and add to bootlocal.sh - this script came from a very old post somewhere on this site.
Code: [Select]
#!/bin/sh

if [ ! -d /var/lib/dbus ]; then
    mkdir -p /var/lib/dbus
fi

dbus-uuidgen --ensure

if [ ! -d /etc/dbus-1/system.d ]; then
    mkdir -p /etc/dbus-1/system.d
fi

if [ ! -d /etc/dbus-1/session.d ]; then
    mkdir -p /etc/dbus-1/session.d
fi

if [ ! -d /var/run/dbus ]; then
    mkdir -p /var/run/dbus
fi

dbus-daemon --system

Set the time/date and then install vivaldi
Code: [Select]
wget https://downloads.vivaldi.com/snapshot/install-vivaldi.sh
sudo sh install-vivaldi.sh --final

The install is not persistent so the last 2 lines need repeating after each boot. If this can be made usable I can make it into an extension.

Tim.
