I'm trying to follow the original topic's instructions, but it seems several extensions and the kernel config are missing for the arm6 release:

ncursesw-dev
elfutils-dev

and the kernel config at newbielink:http://tinycorelinux.net/11.x/armv6/releases/RPi/src/ [nonactive]

Is it possible to compile wireguard for tinycore arm6?

Hi ramblurr
Welcome to the forum.

...  the kernel config are missing for the arm6  ...

Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe configs
zcat /proc/config.gz > <path to kernel source>/.config

... ncursesw-dev ...
The static libraries listed here and the shared objects in ncurses.tcz.list all have a  w  suffix:

AFAIK, Wireguard did not make it into the official kernel until 5.9.y (Maybe not until 5.10.y).  And has not been officially backported.   I realize there are wireguard supported backports, but I'm not willing to deal with those.

If someone wants to take on creating the kernel modules and utils, we would gladly accept the contribution.

ncursesw-dev
elfutils-dev

The piCore equivalents are ncurses-dev and libelf-dev
