Here’s a misfit, i keep noticing “wl” module being loaded which is the wrong wifi module.  I realize this may be Bluetooth related but still something not right here..

Maybe you could post the contents of onboot.lst ?

When troubleshooting it is better not to set any extensions "onboot", then:

* load the relevent wifi firmware extension(s)
* load the wifi extension
* switch wifi on with the f12 key
* check dmesg

Hi mnemonic76
I noticed this in your last  dmesg  post:
Code: [Select]
Kernel command line: BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz quiet  tce=sda1 waitusb=5:UUID="7bfa788c-cd5b-4ec7-9da0-123d192e6d6d" tce=UUID="7bfa788c-cd5b-4ec7-9da0-123d192e6d6d"  initrd=/boot/core.gz
Remove the  tce=sda1  entry from your bootloaders config file. I don't know if it's causing a problem but it certainly does not
belong there.

Coreplayer: that machine is at my office. Will try that Monday.

Juanito: I can do that except the F12 key LED does nit change states when I push it like in Lubuntu... It stays amber.

Rich: when I installed to USB I put the tce=sda1 option in for persistence... How does tinycore know where to look?
Thanks,

Hi mnemonic76
... Rich: when I installed to USB I put the tce=sda1 option in for persistence... How does tinycore know where to look?
This part of it tells it where to look:
Code: [Select]
tce=UUID="7bfa788c-cd5b-4ec7-9da0-123d192e6d6d"It says that the  tce  directory will be found by the disks  UUID  which is  "7bfa788c-cd5b-4ec7-9da0-123d192e6d6d".  UUID is
unique to that disk. Due to the asynchronous nature of device detection there is no guarantee  sda1  will always be assigned
to the same device when multiple disks are involved.

Though it is easy to use WiFi in TC, but for those who are setting up RaLink adapter for the first time and experienced to setup wifi thru TC or linux , here is the simple way thru Windoz :

1) Dnload Coreplus and YUMI software to a Windoz dire.  Put USB stick or Pendrive in USB port
2) start YUMI .. Follow the instructions. A YUMI tutorial is already available on YUMI site. Coreplus will be installed on USB stick.
 3) Adjust PCs or laptops BIOS setting to boot from USB.
4) Reboot. If successful , TC boot menu will be available with diff flavours.
5) From menu options , Select Tinycore with WiFi and Firmware.
6) A nice TC screen with diff icons at bottom appears. Click on WiFi icon.
7) Wait a minute. A prompt will ask to select wifi from available numbered wifi networks. Select your network.
8) Then when prompted, Enter wifi passkey.

 If all is OK , you will get a working Wifi.

 ... Enjoy net or dnload install diff TC application from Apps . :)

It's worth trying anyway..

Also, where can I remove the sda1 reference from the bootloader config file. I have searched the TinyCore docs and I am not finding it.

Thanks,

EDIT: I found it under
Code: [Select]
/mnt/sda1/boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf
Finally found it here: https://distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux/install.html

Used vi to modify it.
Only after finding instructions here: https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360001084114-How-to-edit-file-using-vi-utility-on-Linux-

Here's onboot.lst
...

Ok, to start..   
connect via Ethernet and download and install wifi.tcz extension using APPS or one of the commandline extension managers

then change your onboot.lst to this

Code: [Select]
Xvesa.tcz
aterm.tcz
wbar.tcz
pci-utils.tcz
dillo.tcz
flwm_topside.tcz
firmware-ralinkwifi.tcz
wifi.tcz

Then reboot and select the wifi icon
Check dmesg for errors

EDIT: I found it under
Code: [Select]
/mnt/sda1/boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf ...

VI might be fun & challenging but if you have a graphical desktop  why not use graphic tools

Code: [Select]
sudo editor
Then using editors file > open menu
navigate to  /mnt/sdx1/boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf  for editing.

Please read the core book, I think you’ll find it quite interesting

Sorry, I remembered we already figured out the firmware extension so I modified the onboot.lst accordingly

Good luck

Code: [Select]
Xvesa.tcz
aterm.tcz
wbar.tcz
pci-utils.tcz
dillo.tcz
flwm_topside.tcz
firmware-ralinkwifi.tcz
wifi.tcz

Then reboot and select the wifi icon
Check dmesg for errors


Ok here goes:

Code: [Select]
Here's onboot.lst
Xvesa.tcz
aterm.tcz
wbar.tcz
flwm_topside.tcz
wl-modules-4.19.10-tinycore.tcz
iw.tcz
pci-utils.tcz
opera9.tcz
rfkill.tcz
wifi.tcz

Rebooted,

See attachment: dmesg.txt

Then clicked wifi icon, got a blank terminal window then it timed out and went away. So I did:
Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ sudo wifi.sh
No wifi devices found!

I really want to make TInyCore work... I think there is still something to be learned by booting into Lubuntu since the hardware is made to work by Lubuntu somehow... I would be willing to do other experiments if you can think of them!

It would be better for troubleshooting to have only the following in onboot.lst:

Xvesa
flwm
wbar
aterm

Once booted and in the gui, then:
Code: [Select]
$ tce-load -i firmware-ralinkwifi
$ tce-load -i wifi
$ dmesg | tail -20

..and paste the dmesg results

wl-modules-4.19.10-tinycore.tcz

opera9.tcz
rfkill.tcz
wifi.tcz
OK, I think I see the problem. Try getting rid of that  wl-modules-4.19.10-tinycore.tcz  entry from your onboot.lst  file. Those are
Broadcom drivers but I don't see any Broadcom hardware listed.
