Phone USB tethering with tiny core linux
« on: February 18, 2020, 06:16:44 PM »
Sorry if this is the wrong section, I wasn't sure. I'd like to try tiny core 16mb, that requires a LAN connection. In other linux distros hooking my phone to the PC via USB tethering shows up as LAN connection. So does anyone know if it will work the same way?

It depends, and you may need to install various things on the TC side (specific to your phone) to get such a connection. So not a quick way to get internet to a bare TC.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.
