piCore-12.0beta1
« on: September 23, 2020, 01:33:38 AM »
Team Tiny Core is proud to announce the first beta release of piCore-12.0

For RPi0 and RPi1:
http://tinycorelinux.net/12.x/armv6/test_releases/RPi/piCore-12.0-beta1.zip

For RPi2, RPi3 and RPi4:
http://tinycorelinux.net/12.x/armv7/test_releases/RPi/piCore-12.0-beta1.zip

..and for the first time a 64-bit release for RPi3 and RPi4:
http://tinycorelinux.net/12.x/aarch64/test_releases/RPi/piCore64-12.0-beta1.zip

Note that the 64-bit extension support is limited as everything has to be built from scratch.

Core components

- kernel 5.4.51
- glibc-2.31
- busybox-1.31.1
- gcc-10.1.0
- util-linux-2.35.2
- e2fsprogs-1.45.6

Changes since alpha release:

* init: Avoid awk rounding
* tc-config: Similar awk rounding
* 32-bit kernels rebuilt to fix certificates error
* libstdc++ recompiled for missing futex functions

Please try it out and share your experience, bugs found, etc.

Hi

Does it contain Rich's wbar changes?
on the older beta I do not recall seeing a Apps update for wbar.

Not that I'm aware of, but perhaps @Rich would be kind enough to do them?

Hi Juanito
I'll take care of it. I'll also update the  $WM_menu_common  scripts in flwm, flwm_topside, and jwm.

Is there a way of mounting the image to replace the core and changed files?
(from the alpha release)

Yes:
Code: [Select]
$ tce-load -i util-linux
$ cd /tmp
$ mkdir test image
$ sudo /usr/local/bin/mount -o loop,offset=$((8192*512)) /tmp/test/piCore-12.0-beta1.img /tmp/image

If the offset is not correct, check it with:
Code: [Select]
$ /usr/local/sbin/fdisk -l piCore-12.0-beta1.img

xf86-video-dummy added for piCore64 - this will allow remote connections with x11vnc without a screen connected.

The driver does not seem necessary for piCore as the xf86-video-fbturbo driver (which will not compile for piCore64) starts without a screen connected.

only trying out aarch64 at this stage, after slight mod of above command I think, because I did not run a script for diff....which may be a mistake, the only file in partition 1 that changes is the rootfs-piCore64-12.0.gz.
on reboot I have
Code: [Select]
version
12.0_beta1

but now when I check apps, it does not report I am on beta. And now I can't remember if it ever reported alpha. Do we agree only one file changed?

As far as I know on piCore64, only one file changed, but @paul_123 will be able to confirm.

Oh, wow !
New arch "aarch64"  :D

Please port these extensions to the repo, they're working properly.
(I copied them from 11.x/x86)
Code: [Select]
mirrors.tcz
getlocale.tcz
unifont.tcz
submitqc.tcz

P.S. I'm working on openbox for aarch64.
Is there a different location for 'libexec' files ?
IIRC, I've seen some build scripts that specify a different directory.

Many thanks

Welcome back  :)

Please use /usr/local/lib/appname for libexec so we know where the files came from.
