[Solved] Wifi on TinyCore64 is not working properly
« on: July 22, 2020, 05:52:29 AM »
Hello friends!

As title said.I have installed the corresponding TCE, such as Firmware -iwlwifi.TCZ, Firewire-5.4.3-Tinycore64.TCZ, Firewire-5.4.3-Tinycore64.TCZ, Wire-5.4.3-Tinycore64.TCZ, Wl-Modules-5.4.3-Tinycore64.TCZ,Wifi.TCZ and added these to onboot.lst.

When I execute wifi.sh, it printout the "Devices not found".  At the same time, I found that usr/local/sbin/iw, iwconfig... cannot executed m(using root),  it report "the xxxfiie not found"...

I'm using tinycoreX86 and everything is fine!
WIFI: Intel Link 5100
CPU: Intel P8700

Sorry!My English is not good! I beg for your understanding! Thank you for your help!

First you need to confirm what wifi hardware you have using the "lspci"  command from the pciutils extension.

Assuming you have intel wifi hardware, you need to reboot without any firmware or wifi extensions "onboot" and then use the following commands:
Code: [Select]
$ tce-load -i firmware-iwlwifi wifi
$ sudo wifi.sh

If things do not work, copy and paste the results of this command:
Code: [Select]
$ dmesg | tail -20

I'm a little confused - are you using CorePlus or CorePure64?

When you say "I'm using tinycoreX86 and everything is fine", do you mean wifi is working now?

I'm using corepure64 now.
tc32 is ok, but cp64 is no.

Hi Juanito
I've read the original post about a dozen times. Here are my observations:
... As title said.I have installed the corresponding TCE, such as Firmware -iwlwifi.TCZ, Firewire-5.4.3-Tinycore64.TCZ, Firewire-5.4.3-Tinycore64.TCZ, Wire-5.4.3-Tinycore64.TCZ, Wl-Modules-5.4.3-Tinycore64.TCZ,Wifi.TCZ ...
I don't recall  firewire  being included in the ISOs which leads me to believe the OP is manually downloading extensions.

... and added these to onboot.lst. ...
It's on persistent storage.

Quote
... At the same time, I found that usr/local/sbin/iw, iwconfig... cannot executed m(using root),  it report "the xxxfiie not found"...
I'm not sure what to make of this.

He did succeed in a 32 bit install.

Wifi can work properly on CorePlus32, but not on corepure64.
But I'm using corepure64 now, so I want wifi to be ok, too.

You need these extensions for CorePure64

firmware-iwlwifi.tcz wifi.tcz wpa_supplicant-dbus.tcz libnl.tcz dbus.tcz expat2.tcz elogind.tcz acl.tcz attr.tcz libcap.tcz openssl-1.1.1.tcz readline.tcz ncursesw.tcz wireless_tools.tcz wireless-5.4.3-tinycore64.tcz libiw.tcz

For each extension download *tcz, *tcz.dep (where it exists) and *tcz.md5.txt

Ok.Do I need to reinstall the system before that? My corepure64 is installed via tc-install-GUI. Is this any different from using corepure64.ISO?

Yes, I forgot 64 bit kernel modules could be accessed from a 32 bit system. You then moved them to the tce directory where you
are installing the 64 bit version, right? 32 and 64 bit can not share a  tce  directory.

em...What does that mean?
During the installation of corepure64, I chosed "/mnt/sdb4/tce/cde"(Since the default download path for apps) as "insall extension from TCE/CDE" directory

Hi minux
It means if you want to install 32 and 64 bit on the same machine, you can either:
Install them on separate partitions.

Or:
Give the  tce  directories unique names, such as  tce32  and  tce64  for example.

Thank you for your second suggestion.
I installed corepure64 through coreplus. I don't need both, I just need one.
