Hello, wanderer and all,

recently i found an interesting tinycore iso which can be booted "frugal" from hardisk without burning CD.

Download location link:
http://pub.nicereader.net/tinycore_nr_wifi_firefox.iso

I just copy the two folders in the iso file, that is "tcb" and "tce", to my root directory of (hd0,1)partition,
and then place the iso file also to my root directory of (hd0,1)partition, and then add the entry to menu.lst

title BOOT test
map --mem (hd0,1)/tinycore_nr_wifi_firefox.iso (0xff)
map --hook
chainloader (0xff)

And it boots straight away.
(The menu.lst within the iso is too complicated for me to understand, as my linux knowledge is very very limited)


Firefox is only version24 and a little bit old, wifi works ok. Seems this distro is created by an Asian.
Keyboard on laptop seems to give strange result, "0" is displayed when you press "m". Other apps seem running ok.

Enjoy.

hi all

to those who may be building corepup/tinycore systems
please be aware that there is a tcz accessed through the apps utility
that will download and package into a tcz
any version of firefox that you choose
the default is the lastest
but you can choose any version
the last firefox that uses alsa is 51.0.1
so that is an option for those who want to stay with alsa
after that it requires pulseaudio
but instructions on how to set this up are on the tinycore website

so if you are using corepup or a relatively new tinycore
you can have an up to date firefox

hi all

i have uploaded the corepup-6.iso

to the smokey01 site

and have deleted the corepup-5.iso

this is the latest iso and a bugfix
it contains the new corepup-jwm and the corepup-jwmrc file

this new corepup-jwm only looks for the corepup-jwmrc file
not the old .jwmrc file
so it will not interfere with other jwm setups

hi all

this is just a question for any guru who may read this

in the spirit of unix and corepup
many discrete pieces that can be combined in infinite ways

is it possible to write a busybox ash script
that uses dd to make a live usb that is writeable

i can make a live usb but i cannot make it writeable

any info would be appreciated

Hi wanderer,

I don't think it's possible, when using dd it becomes read-only by default, that's the consequence (just like a CD is read-only).
(but that's only what I experienced, anyone correct me if I'm wrong)

Who you mean with "they"?
Anyway, to have it writable, it's just by copying the required files and folders to the usb and install a bootloader (e.g. grub4dos or syslinux,if I remember well you wrote that you have USB with syslinux as bootloader ?)
For grub4dos setup, I wrote about it here:

Ah, I see, but did you try the grub4dos setup I wrote about and did it work for you or not ?

thanks fredx181

unfortunately the system im working on in corepup
requires syslinux or isolinux

I may try to read the source for puppy live usb
if its in ash or bash I may be able to understand it eventually
tonight I'll try to find it on my 217 and 215 discs

hi all

i have uploaded

corepup-jwm-1.tar.gz

and

corepup-mods-2.tar.gz

to the smokey01 site

these are just naming changes
to keep things organized as we go along

corepup.iso
syslinux and isolinux
tc-config and
corepup.tcz
are complete for the time being

so now all mods will be in the corepup-mods directory

i will add things one at a time

the first is an example of copying to directories to add an app

this will be followed with an example of
a linked directory
a tcz
etc

remember the process is
download corepup-mods.tar.gz
into the home directory
untar it
cd into it
and run setup-mods.sh
to set things up

over the course of time
the goal is to merge the virtues of tinycore and puppy
and to provide a method to make a puppy/tinycore system
that even a non guru can use and understand

LABEL TinyCore 9 JWM
KERNEL /TinyCore-9/vmlinuz
INITRD /TinyCore-9/core.gz
APPEND loglevel=3 waitusb=10 nozswap tce=sdb1/TinyCore-9/tce vga=788 multivt desktop=jwm

Label Slitaz Xvesa
