cfdisk and grub packages not found in repository
« on: January 23, 2024, 04:01:39 AM »
Trying to work my way through the installation process. Tested my network connectivity, but I am unable to pull cfdisk and grub-splash. Is there some issue that is ongoing that prevents me from doing that?

I have tried tce-load for wget just to check and it has worked. However cfdisk and grub-splash are giving 404 errors on the repo.

The select fastest mirror option works OK as well. However in the GUI these packages are also not available in the list.

Hi SemiQuasi
Welcome to the forum.

You need to supply proper information when asking a question:
1. Which version of Tinycore (13, 14, 15, ... ?). Post the result of this command:
Code: [Select]
version
2. Which architecture is this for? Post the result of this command:
Code: [Select]
uname -r

Hi SemiQuasi
You can find  cfdisk  in  util-linux.tcz.

If you want  grub-0.97-splash.tcz , you would need to fetch it from TC10.
Place the following in your  tce/optional/  directory:
http://tinycorelinux.net/10.x/x86/tcz/grub-0.97-splash.tcz
http://tinycorelinux.net/10.x/x86/tcz/grub-0.97-splash.tcz.dep
http://tinycorelinux.net/10.x/x86/tcz/ncurses5.tcz
Then:
Code: [Select]
tce-load -i grub-0.97-splashSee if it works.

Or, you can try  grub2-multi.tcz.
