Yes, that version is final unless something comes up; and no, no timeframe other than "when it's ready".

Seem not to apply, as we don't enable user namespaces (a still experimental feature).

It might be too late or not possible, but given that touch screens are becoming increasingly popular, it would be appreciated if modules

  • EVDEV
  • UINPUT
  • HIDRAW ( USB Interface )
  • HID_MULTITOUCH

could be enabled in the TinyCore kernel by default. These modules are required by the eGalax touch driver http://home.eeti.com.tw/LinuxDriverDownload.html.

@Martin Heller

Please check the config first ;)

Quote
egrep 'EVDEV|UINPUT|HIDRAW|HID_MULTI' config-3.8.10-tinycore
CONFIG_INPUT_EVDEV=y
CONFIG_INPUT_UINPUT=m
CONFIG_USB_VIDEO_CLASS_INPUT_EVDEV=y
CONFIG_USB_PWC_INPUT_EVDEV=y
CONFIG_HIDRAW=y
CONFIG_HID_MULTITOUCH=m

Perfect! Sorry for the noise, and thanks for all the work everybody is putting into TinyCore.

NX requires PAE. Any chance of getting these enabled?

It's far too late for 5.x. PAE is a bad hack, any PAE-capable computers should run the 64-bit kernel; see elsewhere on this forum.

Will the 64-bit version implement multilib to run 32-bit binaries?

Yes and no. Multilib would bring far too much complexity for the benefit.

However we offer three x86 editions:
32-bit
32-bit with the 64-bit kernel
64-bit (corepure64)

Running the 64-bit kernel with the 32-bit repo is fully supported.

How would a dev system work, if I need to compile 64-bit modules and 32-bit programs?

Maybe it's too late, but I want CONFIG_DEBUG_FS=y to be set for muxless video card switch. Though CONFIG_VGA_SWITCHEROO=y in the config file, I cannot find it in /sys.

You can compile and use a kernel with your own settings.
