   the vlc3 in tinycore 10 will not load in tinycore 11
   because a kernel specific dependency could not be found

Hi ulfr
I'd like to demonstrate the value of providing exact error messages reported by the operating system.

In your original post, you reported:
...    vlc will not start with errors   
 
    failed to intialise XRander
    and others ...
Which suggested the problem was you needed to be running Xorg.

6 posts later, you provided the actual error messages produced:
here are the errors
the same if xorg is loaded or not 

Code: [Select]
[08539290] main libvlc: Running vlc with the default interface. Use 'cvlc' to use vlc without interface.
 ----- Snip -----

Illegal instruction
This showed the actual problem was your processor did not support some instruction that the program was trying to execute.

Hi Juanito
Except for  original-modules-KERNEL , I don't see any  .dep  files that contain a specific kernel version in the TC10 or TC11 repos.

thanks - I see the 10.x vlc3 depends on libavdevice3, whereas the 11.x vlc3 depends on libavdevice4, so the two are not interchangeable.

     hi guys

     just wanted to update this thread 

     my goal is to build a basic system with tinycore 11
     the only apps that need to be updated are firefox and vlc
     the rest are various utility programs that i have never had any problems with
     since firefox will play you tube with sound
     i am half the way there
     i note that vlc 3 in tinycore 10 will work with sound
     and that dcore stretch will download a working vlc 3 from debian and make it into an sce
     ( i have not tried setting up sound in dcore yet but will  )
     so i have hope that i will be able to bundle binaries together to make a working vlc for tinycore 11
     anyway that is what i am working on now 
     any words of wisdom to speed me on my quest will be appreciated
     
     thanks for making this great system and for all the help

    ulfr

     hi rich and juanito

     just to update things 

     i have been trying to find a vlc that will work in tinycore 11
     but so far no luck

     i dont have the ability to compile so complex a program
     so i am just looking for binaries

     most have run but stopped with missing dependencies 
     i then slowly added them
     until eventually with one the glibc was too old

     anyway will keep trying

     thanks for making such a great system

     at the risk of boring everyone to death
     i just put tinycore 11 on another computer
     and vlc3 works fine on this one
     of course verifying what you guys said about it being the chip

     well i can use tinycore 11 on this computer

     but will still look to see what vlc3 binaries i can find that will run on the other computer
     its been a lot of fun
