Hi Aladin
... my problem is how to install or copie all my python script (folder) in the SD card and visualize it in PiCore (i mean in Raspbian i use git clone) ... 
If you want  git, you can install it:
Code: [Select]
tce-load -iw git
Quote
then i want to make the program run for the first boot of Raspberry ...
Only the very first time it was ever booted? Create a script called  RunOnce.sh  in /opt containing:
Code: [Select]
#!/bin/sh

# Test if  /opt/FirstBoot  exists. Exit the script if it does.
[ -e "/opt/FirstBoot" ] && exit

# /opt/FirstBoot  didn't exist, so create it.
touch /opt/FirstBoot

Place the command to run your program here

Make the script executable:
Code: [Select]
chmod 775 /opt/RunOnce.sh
If you are running X, you can create a file (name doesn't matter) in  ~/.X.d  containing the following line:
Code: [Select]
/opt/RunOnce.shThis will launch the script once X is running.

If you are not running X, you can add the  /opt/RunOnce.sh  line to  ~/.profile.

You may also want to take an hour to read this fine book:
http://tinycorelinux.net/corebook.pdf
It will teach you some concepts that are unique to Tinycore Linux.

Hi Aladin
Create a directory for your code in the second partition of your SD card and copy your code there. Then when you have your
Pi up and running, you can decide where you want to store your code and move it there.

Hi Aladin
Have you installed piCore to a SD card?
Did you read:
http://tinycorelinux.net/10.x/armv7/test_relases/RPi/README
and:
http://tinycorelinux.net/10.x/armv7/test_relases/RPi/IMPORTANT

Sorry sir, but how can I know the second partition ...
Under piCore it shows up as  mmcblk0p2.

OS = operating system ie. Raspbian, piCore, Windows, Andriod, iOS, some other Linux.

What is the computer you are creating your SD card on?

Where are your python programs located?

Is your git repository on a local computer/server or is it GitLab, GitHub etc.

By default Windows (10?) only sees the first partition of the SD card. Depending on the size of your python files you can copy them to the first (boot) partition then transfer the SD card to the RPi. By default, piCore does have the first partition mounted after it finishes booting, so you will need to mount it to move the files to their final location.

If ssh is running on your RPi, you can use a program like WinSCP (or FileZilla?) to transfer files back on forth between your laptop and RPi - that's what I do. I use WinSCP's synchronize to keep files up-to-date.

By default, piCore only has microPython installed with very few libraries. You will probably have to install full version of python to run your scripts.
