Bela has been mia for a while.   The biggest thing when building extensions is to follow the standard  build criteria.   Unfortunately, it looks like the wiki is down. To link.

You may be able to find the compile info in the package source.

Yes, there is a build script associated with the sources, thanks for point this out. Which bring up another question :(. All the build scripts that I have found in the 10.x/armv7 tcz source tree have compiler flags set for a v6 build. Is this on purpose or just an historical artifact?

On purpose.  That way it runs on all boards.  I've done many side by side tests, there is not much to be gained in board specific optimizations.(And many times the maintenance headaches)

I ran the build script run against inetutils-1.9.4.tar.xz. I compiled on a RPi Model 3 B+ using a virgin piCore 10.0 installation. The resulting files are too large to attach even after compressing with bzip2 (322K).

All I've tested is inetd and ftpd - both work.

Interestingly, when I run ldd against the list of executables, ncursors is not in the list.

You are not allowed to attach extensions to your posts. See the section on submitting extensions in the Wiki:

Did you load the readline-dev and/or ncurses-dev extensions before compiling?

Re: piCore-11.0 released - missing wifi deps
« Reply #22 on: July 07, 2020, 09:45:40 AM »
Hi there,

This is my first time posting/replying here, but I've been using piCore 9.x for a little while to run a minimal appliance-style app on an RPi Zero W, and am delighted that there's a new piCore release.

I've had a look in the RPi boards and don't see any threads mentioning this, but it looks like some wifi packages aren't in the 11.x repo yet, which makes it tricky to get started. It wasn't clear whether I should make a new thread for this, or PM a maintainer (no idea which one, though).

To wit, I'm looking in newbielink:http://repo.tinycorelinux.net/11.x/armv6/tcz/ [nonactive] and:

* libnl is missing
* wifi is missing
* wireless_tools is missing, and the version in the 10.x repo incorrectly lists libiw as a dependency

After manually pulling those into my local tce/optional/ directory I was able to tce-load them as normal and everything is good. As best I can tell these extensions worked properly as-is, so I think it'd be fine to just copy them forwards into the 11.x repo tree, though I did have a go at building a newer version of libnl just for the exercise.

Thanks, hope this is clear and descriptive enough.

Missing extensions copied to piCore-11.x armv6 repo - thanks for reporting this.
