CorePure-64 missing cfdisk and grub
« on: April 24, 2014, 06:46:09 PM »
How do I install CorePure-64 onto a Hard drive?  I tried getting cfdisk and grub using tce-load and no go (404). Is there a step I'm missing?

Grub2 is available in the repo

It's a little like the chicken before the egg.. but there are various ways to install
one method is you can install using the coreplus iso then download corepure64.gz  (or rootfs64.gz, modules64.gz) and  vmlinuz64.   create the grub config entries and reboot

More info about the destination HDD would be advantageous to assist further.. (like is the drive empty? are there other partitions, etc etc..)

Another recommended very useful tool to use at the command line is  " tce-ab "
Code: [Select]
tce-ab - Tiny Core Extension: Application Browser

S)earch P)rovides K)eywords or Q)uit:
then enter " s " for search
Code: [Select]
Enter starting chars of desired extension, e.g. abi: grub

tce - Tiny Core Extension browser

         1. graphics-3.8.10-tinycore64.tcz
         2. graphics-3.8.13-tinycore64.tcz
         3. grep.tcz
         4. grilo-dev.tcz
         5. grilo-gir.tcz
         6. grilo-plugins-dev.tcz
         7. grilo-plugins.tcz
         8. grilo.tcz
         9. grub2-efi.tcz

Enter selection ( 1 - 9 ) or (q)uit:
