That is why I said "run tce-update" instead of saying "run AppsAudit."

Thanks, I just thought that making things explicit could help others.
By the way, is it possible, as it is with appsaudit, to pick up just a subset of the extensions to be updated, using only text cli?
I'm asking because I had to update all the extensions, which I didn't really feel the need of.

Until now I have utilized tc4.1+openbox+bmpanel, now updated with core4.2+Xorg+Xprogs+openbox+wbar+bmpanel I don't have the ondemand menu entry, and the System tools menu entry is empty. Is because openbox is not updated? or I have missing something?

* Updated interface files for supported window manager extensions:
   flwm_topside.tcz, flwm.tcz, fluxbox.tcz, hackedbox.tcz, icewm.tcz, icewm-full.tcz, jwm-snapshot.tcz, jwm.tcz
Having similar issues with Openbox. No love for Openbox in the updates to all the window managers? Is another WM significantly better? I am used to and totally love the XML style config for Openbox menu entries.

I don't see any interface files in the openbox extension. Use appbrowser Files tab on selected openbox.tcz.
Therefore I would not expect such functionality and therefore not a Core 4.2 issue but an extension issue.

my pleasure :)

still have two questions about CorePlus-4.2.iso

ndiswrapper.tcz and wpa_supplicant.tcz
in the iso and in the repo it have different dates and sizes
ndiswrapper.tcz
iso: 102400  2011/11/24
repo: 24576 2011/12/19
wpa_supplicant.tcz
iso: 172032  2011/11/24
repo: 212992 2011/12/08
where the last version, in the iso or in the repo
if look at dates, it means that iso contains non latest version

wl.tcz removed from the repo
4.2 was like the chicken versus the egg with so many new "extensions" not in the repository. Thus those that were were frozen and thus a little dated. Going forward should be much easier. Although the extensions on any CD will be dated snapshots and the repository will always be the best choice to ensure the latest version.

You will see a 4.2.1 with the minor adjustments reported so far.

wl.tcz removed from the repo

This one was also renamed since it only contains a module - wl-modules-3.0.3-tinycore{64}.tcz

Out of curiosity I ran tce-update today.  the update script proceeded to download
"xf86-video-all.tcz"  ok but did I need it is a question?

Later I ran tce-update again, this time update proceeded to download all 34 video dependents of "xf86-video-all.tcz" ??
Did I need these too is another question?  I mean I didn't need them before right?  none of these extensions have been loaded on subsequent reboots.

Core (from CorePlus) with flwm_topside +Xvesa + Xprogs + wbar


UPDATE**   I found that "Xorg-7.6.tcz" lists "xf86-video-all.tcz" as a dependency??

appsaudit does not report any missing deps, only tce-update indicates the missing deps. and downloads them all.

As the xf86-video-all info file says, it's a meta-extension for all of the video drivers.

Once you've figured out which driver you need, you could edit the xf86-video-all dep file to only list your particular video driver and mark the rest for deletion with apps audit.

Ah ha!  ok thx, well I did already delete them all and no app when run from the terminal are complaining..  neither are there any relevant dmesg errors.  so I guess i'll continue without them.

dmesg | grep -n -i -C 3 video   returns only "Boot Video Device"  (no errors)  :)

I wasted some time to understand that fluxbox.tcz.zsync is wrong on the internet repo, so that any attempt to update fluxbox failed.
I had to force tce-update not to use zsync, and it worked.
I regard this as a disrupting problem, maybe tce-update could be modified so to handle these situations more wisely: it should not rely on the repository inner consistency.

Is possible to change openbox.tcz in the repository with one with this changes?
(Perhaps are only necessary this two changes)

Will take a look in next days.

Corrected version sent.
Thank you sir, will test shortly. Perhaps openbox can be added to CorePlus in the next go-around? Just a suggestion, I was wondering if there is any reason it's not already in there.

Please keep extension posts out of this topic area and in the proper extension area. Thank you.

When Xprogs and Xlibs is loaded the owner of /usr (and some subdirs) changes from root:root to tc:staff. This is causing Virtualbox to give errors.

Ok, I switched to 4.2 and for now I seem to have no problems.
I have only a couple of questions:

Sometimes I edit the contents of / opt / .tce_dir to download the packages to another directory, how i might do now? (change the simlink in etc?)

This is my actual content of /opt/ and /etc/, it is all ok?
http://pastebin.com/DAfG9gZ4
something is missing and / or is there something too?
