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?

also in getlocale.tcz
/tmp/tcloop/getlocale/usr/local/bin/getlocale.sh:64:TCEDIR=`cat /opt/.tce_dir`

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.

thanks, understand it now
thank you for a great job!!! :)
look forward for new version in this year
happy new year!!! best wishes!!!  8)

Please post extensions that need adjustments for 4.2 to the extension area and/or contact the listed extension maintainer.

I just updated all my TCL to version 4.2 (and I'm sticking to Xvesa and flwm_topside) from 4.1. The problem I'm having is that every time it boots,  I'm reminded that

cat: can't open /opt/.tce_dir
Well, I tried to touch /opt/.tce_dir and next time I boot the system, I get the same complaint.
Am I missing something here?

Sounds like an extension needs updating. Please boot with "showapps pause" and tell us which in the TCE bugs area.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

I got that because the .X.d directory had a wbar entry.
This is no longer needed and should be removed.

I have

  • Xprogs
  • Xvesa
  • flwm_topside
  • dropbear
  • kmaps
  • expad2
  • fontconfig
  • opera-11
  • fireflysung
loaded at start-up. Are you suggesting that one or several of the extension is causing the problem?

Thank you Gerald. I checked /home/tc/.X.d and it's empty.

You cannot mix 4.1 with 4,2. Please update these as they have been updated as mentioned in the 4.2 announcement.

Thank you Robert. I deleted
  • .profile
  • .xsession
  • .setbackground
; after restarting TCL, the problem is now solved.

BTW, what shall we call TC now? Tiny Core has become an example of typical usages of Core. Shall we now call the distribution Core Linux?  ;)

Good point. I hade the same problem writing core2usb WIKI pages and this is why named it to core2usb instead of tc2usb. I used Core in general and (Tiny) Core to make it familiar for visitors.

Even I've been thinking in latest day and I concluded that the "core" is a perfect name. Coincidentally, the logo remains coherent (with a shining reminder of the past, as the directory tce).

Perhaps the structure of the forum must be readapted

Does Core Linux use eglibc as the C library?
