rng-tools.tcz is another source.  I've shaved the extras out of rng-tools to only use the /dev/hwrng of the arm processor, so the dependencies are much less now.

haveged - software entropy
rng-tools - hardare entropy

Following Juanito's instructions to try to get wifi running on a RasPi 3B+ (much appreciated btw, no ethernet available) but after running tce-load -i wifi command, I get the error:

wireless-5.10-16-piCore-v7.tcz not found!

I'm guessing the wifi module jut refers to a newer version of the wireless-5.4.51-piCore.tcz file that I downloaded. Can you tell me where I can find the one that the wifi is calling for?

Thank you!

Hi seedsigner
It sounds like you may be running piCore 13, not 12.

wireless-5.10-16-piCore-v7.tcz  can be found here:

Alright, super dumb question, but when I click on that link, it is just a list of text files. Can't figure out how to download any of the files.

Hi seedsigner
To download it, just append the extension name to the repositories URL:
http://tinycorelinux.net/13.x/armv7/tcz/wireless-5.10-16-piCore-v7.tcz

Thanks so much, was trying to ftp and couldn't connect for whatever reason. The appending worked for me, appreciate the quick response and with the rest of Juanito's instructions I am now connected via WiFi. Thanks again.
