getflash11 does not generate flash11.tcz
« on: December 21, 2011, 02:29:11 AM »
I use core 4.2rc2 on a fresh partition. getflash11 does indeed install flash11, because I can use it and I see it in /tmp/tcloop/flash11. opera-next and firefox8 run OK.

my comment is about flash11.tcz : it is not generated, it is not in /tce/optional
but if I modfy the script genflash11.sh, to remove the -noappend
"sudo mksquashfs pkg/ "$DOWNLOAD_DIR"/flash"$VER".tcz -noappend > /dev/null 2>&1 || exit_red"

this new line works
sudo mksquashfs pkg/ "$DOWNLOAD_DIR"/flash"$VER".tcz || exit_red
but the resulting files are in /optional not in /mnt/sda6/tc4/optional/

btw: /tc4/optional has read and write permisions for tc:staff and AppBrowser works ok.
the /optional/flash11.tcz is root:root for user:group, but .dep and .md5.txt are tc:staff owner.

I can manage to build myself flash11.tcz, but maybe the extension owner wish to correct the script ;)
Anyway, thank you for the script and your effort to maintain it.

thanks Jason, flash11.tcz  was created OK, together with dep and md5.txt
One more request, please:
flash11.tcz has root:root owner, but should be tc:staff maybe, to show in appbrowser list for ondemand (and onboot)?

Edit: sorry, I tested with a random selected extension, root:root permissions set, reboot again, and appbrowser seems to know /list that extension anyway for ondemand or onboot. which is good to know.

 :D Hi new tinycore user here... Sorry if this has been addressed elsewhere. I did a fresh install of tinycore but am having a difficult time installing Flash 11.

I have downloaded GetFlash11 through the app browser and run it from the desktop. However, I seem to be missing the flash11.tcz file and do not know where to proceed.

Strangely, I am able to watch youtube videos but any other flash application brings up the adobe download link.

Am I missing something obvious? i do not see flash11 in the tmp/tcloop/ folder as stated earlier in this post.

Same here. Run getflash11 and there is a terminal window that flashes then goes away....

Hi flyinghamster
GetfFlash only gets and packages the flash extension, it does not load it. Check your  tce/optional  directory to see if
it's there. If not, open a terminal and enter   sudo find / -iname *flash*.tcz to find it, then copy the tcz, md5, and dep
files to  tce/optional. Now open   AppsAudit   and add the flash extension to onboot. Reboot and flash should now
work.

After downloading and running GetFlash11, there still seems to be no resultant output. Just like teraflopb, terminal window flash and then nothing. The expected folder /optional does not contain anything additional, and using the search query you gave me comes up only with the result for the GetFlash11.tcz

Unfortunately I believe the retrieval and packaging of the extension may be the problem.

Is it worth trying to use GetFlash11? Is there a good method to manually install Flash from the Adobe tarball?

Hi flyinghamster
It's possible that Adobe put out a new version of flashplayer. I think Jason W once mentioned that every time that
happens it breaks the  GetFlash  extension. At any rate, I suggest waiting for Jason to weigh in on this topic, he
knows a lot more about it than I do,

If Jason doesn't respond to this thread in a couple of days, PM him with a link to this thread.

Hello flyinghamster,

The present version of "getFlash11.sh" seems to work if you run it in a terminal window.  At least it did update Flash on my system.  If I ran it from the desktop, I got  the results that you indicated above, & Flash wasn't updated.  You probably understand about loading getFlash11.sh & running it in a terminal window.  If not, please send me a personal message, & I'll give you what works for me.

Take care.

I see the issue, the startup script calls on /opt/.tce_dir for the tce directory.

Since robc has done the latest update and hopefully would like to maintain it, I will give him a chance first before I correct it though it is a simple correction.

For a temporary fix:
echo "/etc/sysconfig/tcedir" > /opt/.tce_dir
