I am new to raspberry pi, I would like to set up a tinycore os. I do not have a keyboard nor a monitor that I can connect through HDMI. So I'm trying to autoconnect to the wifi so that I can ssh. But it never connects on the network. I have put the following files on /opt/

ca_certificates.tcz
firmware-rpi3-wireless.tcz
libiw.tcz
libnl.tcz
ncurses.tcz
openssl.tcz
readline.tcz
wifi.tcz
wireless_tools.tcz
wireless-4.9.22-piCore.tcz
wpa_supplicant.tcz

plus the corresponding .md5.txt and .dep files

Here is my tce/onboot.lst

mc.tcz
openssh.tcz
firmare-rpi3-wireless.tcz
wireless_tools.tcz
wireless-4.9.22-piCore.tcz
wpa_supplicant.tcz
wifi.tcz

Here is my bootlocal.sh

#!/bin/sh
wpa_supplicant -iwlan0 -Dwext -c/opt/wpa_configure.conf -B &

I have set my wpa_credentials.conf as it should

ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
network={
         ssid=MyBox
         psk=MyPassword
         proto=WPA
         pairwise=TKIP
         group=TKIP
         key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
}

Besides, I cannot read any log file of the boot. I tried to copy the log files in bootlocal.sh by adding a line cp /var/log/messages /opt/messages, but without success.

Could anyone help me ?

  • Sure! But before I even can try that, i need to be able to get an ip adress. – dyulf_rikk Jul 12 '18 at 23:27
  • Most of us use Raspbian. I'm afraid it's not easy to get support from here for piCore (but may be). Have you considered to start with Raspbian instead? – Ingo Jul 13 '18 at 9:20
  • Yes I have ! However I cant grab an sd card with 8go of memory, and the application for my raspberry pi is quite minimilastic. I succesfully installed dietpi on my 2go sd card though. – dyulf_rikk Jul 13 '18 at 9:23
