Can i install this app and run a python program?
« on: April 02, 2021, 08:29:54 PM »
Hello.
I am thinking of installing tiny core on a raspberry pi zero w.
Can I install this application? (or there is some other that do the same)
https://github.com/davesteele/comitup

On the other hand, my intention is to run a python program. Will I have a problem?
Excuse the ignorance.
Thanks a lot.

With a little preparation you can install various existing piCore wifi extensions on an RPi0 so that it will connect on boot - there are several threads on the subject.

You can install and run python programs using piCore - I haven't tried the one you mention, but it should work.

While installing python programs is trivial, what they do is completely different.

That program requires networkmanager and systemd.   Tinycore does not use systemd, so I would bet that it will not work as you want.

Perhaps the systemd functionality can be disabled or elogind used in its place.

Ouch.
Thanks. What is elogind??

In the other hand if this app dont work. How can i do "the same"?
This app make an access point if when rpi start dont find his saved wifi (or if is first start). You connect to that access point and there a page with options for select the wifi you want to connect.

That's relatively lot of work, and probably no other implementations exist. You can do it yourself, of course, if you're willing to go the way.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

networkmanager is present in the piCore repo, but it will probably run slowly on an RPi0

elogind is a work-around for systemd
