Normally an sd card appears as /mnt/mmcblk0p1 or similar - what is your sd card called by tinycore?

Hi xor,

I suggest checking your drives as there are 4 drives in total (sda2,3; sdb1; sdc1; sr0(CD-ROM)).

I write to run from iso to usb

I want the applications to be added to (cde >> optional) directory.

but this writes the downloaded files to (tce >> optional) directory. ! :(

this is not intervened here.

Hi xor,

Until you get a better reply, try this :
mount your drive
Code: [Select]
sudo rm -rf /etc/sysconfig/tcedir
sudo ln -s (path to folder where you want the downloads) /etc/sysconfig/tcedir
Note that you should not include the ending "/" in the above path

I don't know if it works but this is what I do when I use the base bootcode and load tcz in my tce32 folder (it actually defaults to tce directory which is non existent).

the issue here is not a personal folder selection!

  A shortcoming within the TCL distribution's own application installer

Failure to redirect as desired

in other words, a thoughtlessness error that can be regarded as a bug in the technical sense

In this respect, APPs application needs to be updated.

Hi xor,

Well that is called personal folder selection. I also remember hearing in forums that "cde directory is not writable". Try changing the folder name "cde -> tce".

The apps program doesn't have a manual path entry thing. The apps doesn't scan for any tce folder. It just creates one if it is not there. I hope it would be implemented soon.

Tinycore assumes cde/optional = cd/dvd = read only - this is why you cannot add extensions to cde/optional

Tinycore also assumes iso = read only - this is why you should remaster if you wish to add extensions to it

You are, of course, welcome to try whatever you like, but it will not be supported officially.

As already suggested, why not install tinycore to your sd card and boot directly from it rather than from an iso?

Hi xor,
Do this and don't click on "Set". You will see your path.

I seem to recall that you can use "sudo tce-setup" if you want to return to a normal boot after booting with "base"

 Hi xor,

I still can't understand what you are asking for  :-\. Do you want to make apps to download your TCZs to a custom directory ?
