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.
