General TC Talk / Re: news on Robert Shingledecker?

Hi curaga
I found one of Roberts posts:
http://damnsmalllinux.org/static/act-ST/f-1/t-20203/st-15.html
The  link listed there (https://www.shingledecker.org/) leads to
a  Prof. Dr. Christopher N. Shingledecker  in Kansas.

The link http://tinycorelinux.net/Team_TC.html shows "Last Updated, March 3, 2013". If this is still fully correctly then is a great achievement (to keep the same VOLUNTARY team for 11 years). In these days even the employer is changed every few years.

His personal site had some info, but I think it's offline now. You might find it in archive.org, and the links to it on the old DSL forums. It was something like shingledecker.net.

I haven't noted anything in the forums from roberts in a while - I hope he's doing ok.

For those interested, I found this article from the previous century...

wrt
>my wifi.

---> if it is a router you can access , perhaps *you* can skip some hoop jumping and use a lan cable ? <---

>the only tool that works in creating this bootable usb is etcher

what else did you try ?

because ... afaik (apart from some boot loader/manager eg grub2 ,ect) no "tool" is required ...

Corepure64 / issues with inital setup
« Last post by pixel on July 23, 2024, 11:33:55 PM »
hello all. i am using an x64 uefi-only laptop and am trying to install tiny core linux in any way possible with my wifi. i've tried every iso file offered and only tinycorepure64 works, which leaves me stuck considering the install guide assumes im already connected to the internet, which i am not. the only tool that works in creating this bootable usb is etcher, which makes the usb read-only (i'm trying this on a mac), stopping me from adding the tcz files for the wifi extension i need. this whole thing sounds like a massive xy problem; all i want is an installation of tinycore, i don't care how. i'd appreciate anyone pointing me in the right direction :)

TCB Bugs / Re: Pick fastest mirror hang
« Last post by CentralWare on July 23, 2024, 11:19:40 PM »
@neonix: The UCE mirror "answers" so to speak (which is why even in your browser it waits a LOT longer than usual before timing out) however they're seemingly having technical issues with their server(s) or their network itself which wget would never be able to predict.  This could be a routing problem (where a visitor is being routed to network A, then network B and then C - but then gets redirected back to A because "D" says there's a problem - all of which wget has no clue about) from the way it's acting...  I didn't dig too deeply to investigate.

Suggestion: Take the above script and COPY the contents into a file called mymirrors and place it into /opt; then run it from the shell/terminal:
Code: [Select]
cd /opt
sh mymirrors
The UCE mirror will likely act in the same fashion as it's doing right now and get skipped after the five second time-out in the script (not wget's timeout, that's ignored by our method.)
When the above script is completed, it will show you the "fastest" mirror to your location and update /opt/tcemirror to reflect the changes.
Once that's done, try a fresh download (ie: try installing MC again)

NOTES:
  • If you're on a slow internet/network you may need to increase the script's time-out to compensate
  • The script does not test/detect an active internet connection; it's assumed you're already online
  • The script doesn't know how your persistence is set up; when you reboot, if /opt isn't persistent, the changes and "mymirrors" will be lost.

Hi Rich
i change to install dosfstools x86_64 version has fix  my problem, thank you very much!! ;D ;D

Hi yimding
i have installed dosfstools in corepure14, ...
That's a 64 bit operating system.

Quote
... the dosfstools.tcz i download from http://tinycorelinux.net/14.x/x86/tcz/ ...
That's a 32 bit extension.

64 bit extensions are here:
http://tinycorelinux.net/14.x/x86_64/tcz/

You should be using  tce-load  to install extensions.

My Corepure 14 shows this:
Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ ls -al /tmp/tcloop/dosfstools/usr/local/sbin/
