will there ever be a released Pi-core for PI 3 b+ ?
« on: September 12, 2019, 02:51:40 AM »
I desperately need a version of TinyCore that can run on a PI 3 b+ 
with most of  the TZE's ported as well

the betas of PiCore -10 are old and dysfunctional
I have read though a lot of posts and it seems like Pi-Core for Raspberry is halted, and nobody is working on it
Does any body have any news, at all?

I also needed piCore for the Pi3B+ so a few months ago I put together a release and tczs that met my needs, they are available as piCorw 10.1beta1a and is available here timjanes.uk.

I believe it is functional, has all the tcz needed to support the hardware on the pi3B+ ie WiFi, Bluetooth etc and compiletc so that it can be used as a command line development system.

I also added commands tce-load9 and tce-ab9 that can be used to load extension from piCore9, in general if they don't link with ssl or ncurses there is a good chance that they will work on this release.

It is a major amount of work to rebuild a significant number of tcz so I have only done those I need and I don't use X so I have not done anything but command line. There are reports that the basic X server from 9 do work.

I am self employed so my work load varies drastically and I have been fully occupied the last couple of months so I have not had any time to devote to piCore.

I see the priority would be to get a release that supports the Pi4 as well as other Pi and that may help to get some momentum going. I ill see if I can put a release together, I have had piCore running on the Pi4.

What are your requirements?
