May not be related, but I had a problem with the home/tc/.setbackground script being empty (as I discovered later) after I supposedly copied it from etc/skel/ (using fluff). TCL kept coming up with just the wbar on a black background. After I recopied the script from etc/skel the setbackground (and wallpaper) function started to work again.

if tce directory is on a disk with vfat, then permissions changes using the key -R in /usr/bin/tce-setup
Code: [Select]
setupExtnDirs() {
[ -d "$MOUNTPOINT"/"$TCE_DIR"/optional ] || mkdir -p "$MOUNTPOINT"/"$TCE_DIR"/optional
[ -d "$MOUNTPOINT"/"$TCE_DIR"/ondemand ] || mkdir -p "$MOUNTPOINT"/"$TCE_DIR"/ondemand
touch "$MOUNTPOINT"/"$TCE_DIR"/onboot.lst
touch "$MOUNTPOINT"/"$TCE_DIR"/xwbar.lst
chown -R "$USER".staff "$MOUNTPOINT"/"$TCE_DIR"
chmod -R g+w "$MOUNTPOINT"/"$TCE_DIR"
}
when booting leads to mass error output for each file in the tce dir and subdirs: "Operation not permitted"

Hmm, same here. Aside from that, perfect! :D

theoretically, it could be cured by the key -Rf
but in fact, all crap should be sent to /dev/null
Code: [Select]
setupExtnDirs() {
[ -d "$MOUNTPOINT"/"$TCE_DIR"/optional ] || mkdir -p "$MOUNTPOINT"/"$TCE_DIR"/optional
[ -d "$MOUNTPOINT"/"$TCE_DIR"/ondemand ] || mkdir -p "$MOUNTPOINT"/"$TCE_DIR"/ondemand
touch "$MOUNTPOINT"/"$TCE_DIR"/onboot.lst
touch "$MOUNTPOINT"/"$TCE_DIR"/xwbar.lst
chown -R "$USER".staff "$MOUNTPOINT"/"$TCE_DIR" 2>/dev/null
chmod -R g+w "$MOUNTPOINT"/"$TCE_DIR" 2>/dev/null
}
do working core.gz pack and wait for version 4.2.1 8)

I would rather wait a few days than to issue a 4.2.1 just to hide the fat!
Likely many do not use fat anyway and it is only an annoyance.

sorry, i did not mean that you should immediately new release :o
i mean that this can fix locally and wait for corrected version
and more likely that the new version with all fixes will be 4.2.1

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

The ndiswrapper kernel module was recently separated out from the original extension, the contents of the two extensions are the same as the original single extension though..

Code: [Select]
~ # version
4.2
~ # egrep -rn "[.]tce_dir" /tmp/tcloop/
/tmp/tcloop/fluxbox/usr/local/bin/fluxbox_ondemand:6:TCEDIR="$(cat /opt/.tce_dir)"
Binary file /tmp/tcloop/Xprogs/usr/bin/appbrowser matches
Binary file /tmp/tcloop/Xprogs/usr/bin/appsaudit matches
Binary file /tmp/tcloop/Xprogs/usr/bin/exittc matches
~ #

This is probably to be fixed in fluxbox.tcz (didn't try any other wm), since now the local tcz repo is linked by /etc/system/tcedir.
I wonder why the occurence in binaries?

You need to run tce-update, as you are running the old Xprogs and Xlibs.

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?

Ok, the issues reported on my posts in this thread seem to be related.
I investigated a bit, and this is my hypothesis: I upgraded from microcore 4.1 to core 4.2, and appsaudit (gui) returned no extension needed to be updated.
This turned out to be wrong: manually downloading Xlibs, Xprogs, fluxbox, I checked they did need to be updated.
Probably (the old version of) appsaudit returns the message
Code: [Select]
Please standby... Now checking for your extensions.
Scan for updates completed.
only because the error given by the deprecation of /opt/.tce_dir is mishandled.
The problem is that one thus is caught in a vicious circle, which can be broken by either manually downloading Xlibs, Xprogs and fltk, or either by booting text base norestore, manually setting up a internet connection, and using tce-update /path/, which I did.
Anyway, I did not find a clear statement of this problem, which appears a bit subtle until one stumbles on it.
All this matter boils down to using tce-update instead of appsaudit, as Gerald hinted.

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