Modified sources

Modified sources are maintained in the version branch:

Un-published sources

The following configuration files may be modified in our binary distributions, but we've opted not to publish them publicly, for obvious reasons:

  • /etc/passwd
  • /etc/shadow
  • /etc/fstab
  • /etc/group
  • /etc/issue
  • /etc/motd
  • /etc/sudoers
  • /opt/
  • /opt/onboot.lst
  • /opt/.filetool.lst
  • /opt/.xfiletool.lst

Private files un-related to the original TinyCore Linux are covered by a separate license, and may or may not be published publicly, according to their individual license.


TinyCore Linux is licensed under GPL v2, and all custom code developed by Robert Shingledecker is therefore also covered by the same GPL v2 License. Any other software contained within, if not specifically stated would also fall under the same such license.


We want to thank the TinyCore Linux community for their support and hard work on this OS.

We also want to thank all Open Source software developers for contributing valuable source code for everyone to use freely.
