-The kernel used by a dCore port is based on the most recent Tiny Core Linux kernel available when the port is prepared for release, not the Debian or Ubuntu release kernel. It is, however, rebuilt specifically for the dCore port with any custom configuration that may be required, such as systemd-related issues. The kernel config, patched source and READMEs can be found at http://tinycorelinux.net/dCore/x86/import/src/. As kernels provided by dCore have specifically been created to work with the applicable dCore port, ''sce-import'' should not be used for kernel related packages.+The kernel used by a dCore port is based on the most recent Tiny Core Linux kernel available when the port is prepared for release, not the Debian or Ubuntu release kernel.

 To keep the kernel compact, numerous kernel modules are prepared and provided separately, such as alsa-modules, bluetooth, graphics, touchscreen, netfilter, scsi, usb-serial, virtualbox, wireless, etc. To view available kernel modules run  [[http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/dcore:sce-searchprebuilt_command|sce-searchprebuilt]] or perform an [[http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/dcore:sce-import_command|sce-import]] search using the -c (contains option) with the kernel version in use and the keyword 'tinycore', example, ''sce-import -cb 4.2.9-tinycore''. The -b option used in the example ensures any imported kernel modules are loaded at boot, which is recommended to enable the required functionality. If uncertain run ''uname -a'' or ''uname -r'' and confirm the dCore system's kernel version to ensure compatibility before importing modules. To keep the kernel compact, numerous kernel modules are prepared and provided separately, such as alsa-modules, bluetooth, graphics, touchscreen, netfilter, scsi, usb-serial, virtualbox, wireless, etc. To view available kernel modules run  [[http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/dcore:sce-searchprebuilt_command|sce-searchprebuilt]] or perform an [[http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/dcore:sce-import_command|sce-import]] search using the -c (contains option) with the kernel version in use and the keyword 'tinycore', example, ''sce-import -cb 4.2.9-tinycore''.
