This post says http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,18967.msg116397.html#msg116397 that version 7 will:

- virtio_scsi to =y in 64-bit

Is there any chance this can be included in the next point release of version 6?  It would be really great if it was built into the release version so TinyCore can run on cloud hosts.

thanks!

We generally don't change kernels mid-release, barring serious bugs.

It's fairly easy to remaster that driver into the initrd, or you can add them in an additional initrd. Instructions are in the wiki.

Edit: this also isn't needed on the 32-bit edition of 6.x.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

It was already =y on 32-bit, missing it on 64-bit was an oversight.
