New version, 1.5 is available at https://sourceforge.net/projects/core2usb/ for download. It supports jls_legalize's ISO's and of course works with latest TC 4.6

    It doesn't install the On Demand files for jls_legalize's ISO. That is one thing i have noticed with your latest version. All i see when i click on the desktop for the pop up menu is the basics, just like the bottom shelf "Toolbar" (Apps Browser, Scm Browser, Control Panel, etc...) and not all the other applications that come with the Enlightenment Desktop Manager that jls_legalize customized in for On Demand.

Hi,

it is good to hear that it works in general (on WINDOWS ?).

You are right, it was not expected to have an ondemand directory in the ISO. Will check latest version.

Yes, i was using Core2USB 1.5 on a laptop running Vista 64BIT. Well, on Unetbootin all of the files copy over just fine, only on your latest version of Core2USB the On Demand files doesn't copy over. Other than that, the On Boot and Optional files copy over just fine.

Try core2usb-1.6 and let me know the result:

Hi, bmarkus.

Folks in another thread in this forum (TCL on a pendrive to run an Asus EeePC 1000HA?) have suggested I use core2usb.exe to install CorePlus onto my pendrive to run my Asus EeePC 1000HA netbook. I have downloaded core2usb-1.6.exe from sourceforge.net and read the wiki there. I've got a few questions, and I'm hoping this post gets to you and that you will be kind enough to help me out.

-- Is core2usb-1.6.exe still the latest stable version?

-- Will core2usb-1.6.exe work with all CorePlus distros, past and present, including the current one?

-- I have a 4Gb empty pendrive re-formatted FAT32. What do you suggest as partitions before using core2usb-1.6.exe? Or should I leave it one whole partition?

-- I plan to run my netbook from this pendrive and not do a hard disk installation. Are there any special usage details I should know beforehand for the core2usb-1.6.exe installation onto the pendrive? (I am new to TCL.)

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Cheers!

Mike

Yes. As you see at the project WEB and download area.

As written in the WiKi, compatible with 4.x Give it a try and let me know if doesn't work.

Create a relatively small FAT or FAT32 partition (256M) as first partition for. Use remaining part as EXT and SWAP LINUX partitions later created with TC when it is up and running.

No. What you need ia a PC which can boot from USB.

When I use Core2USB on a remastered ISO I created with one of the automated scripts... I'm booting directly into an application I created, which works just fine, but when exiting from that application, it boots the TinyCore GUI which I don't want it to do...  but if I boot it in a Virtual PC with just the ISO (without using Core2USB) it exits to the command prompt as I expect it to.

hi :)

with Windows XP Pro SP3, I tried core2usb 1.6 with TC current version (x86 4.7.7) but it only made empty directories on my USB stick.

there is an error log file :

Quote
Exception in Tkinter callback
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "Tkinter.pyo", line 1410, in __call__
  File "core2usb-16.py", line 150, in callback1

  File "subprocess.pyo", line 679, in __init__
  File "subprocess.pyo", line 896, in _execute_child
UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\xe9' in position 59: ordinal not in range(128)

any idea ? thank you :)

What is locale for XP?

Can you provide a screen capture just before starting installation when all selections made?

I had an idea when you asked me to take a screenshot : I moved the iso and the installer to C:\ and it worked ! before, the iso and the installer were in my documents\downloads, maybe the path was too long ?

thank you :)

Looks like there was a special national character in a directory name.
