piCore repository moved away from ibiblio
« on: November 30, 2012, 03:11:40 AM »
piCore's armv6 repository is moved away from ibiblio to my home CentOS server. I have a 3 Mbit/s upload bandwidth, so it must be OK for testers and to sync repos (if there will be any). Good point is I have all logs to see usage and bandwidth stats.

Also it speeds up development as no waiting time to get repo updated on the regular way.

Look for new extensions, updates there, ibiblio is not updated.

To activate, edit /opt/tcemirror file and replace link with

http://repo.picorelinux.org/

Please note, it is still beta and a bit messy, expect missing deps, etc. Work in progress.

Reports are welcome.

Hello!
I'm trying to setup wifi on RaspberryPi model B in piCore 4.7.1. When I installed wifi.tcz with tce-load -i it says: wireless-3.2.27.tcz not found or not ok. Where can I find wireless-3.2.27.tcz for armv6? I have a Netgear N300 wifi usb adapter because it was among the supported hardware in the wiki list. Whats the easiest way to set up wireless network in piCore? I read about wicd.tcz but couldn't find it in the repository.
Thank you all in the Tiny Core Linux development team! I think you do a fantastic work with the smallest and best linux distro ever.  :)
Yours Magnus Falk in Oslo, Norway

OK thanks! Sounds good.

My first projekt with RaspberryPi and piCore is a small, quiet and low power wireless webserver. I dont have access to wired lan, thats why the need for wifi. Because RPi is a minimalistic computer and piCore likewise very small os I thought they would be perfect together.

First mirror added, hosted in the Netherlands by GoDaddy. Install or update mirrors.tcz to have up to date mirror list.

BTW, mirrors welcome. :)
