AppsAudit / OnBoot / Maintenance sort order is case sensitive while AppsAudit /Dependencies and AppBrowser are not. Causing some extra work to find ImageMagick, LXDE, etc. :)

BTW, I'm not a native English speaker; why 's' is in AppsAudit and not in AppBrowser?

Haha, good question. I guess it is because one is auditing all one's applications (plural) but one is browsing for an application (singular).

Imagine "AppsBrowser" or "AppsStore", sounds either like a hiccup or like a snake ;-)

AppsAudit OnBoot, OnDemand, and Md5Check master list is now consistent with that of Dependencies and AppBrowser, i.e., case insensitive.

Yes. Both label and uuid. Label is easier to use than uuid.

Hi Roberts,
Thanks for your reply,

One more question is there a iso of x86_64 version?
I only found here : http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/tinycorelinux/4.x/x86/release/distribution_files/

Thanks,

I have mc 4.81 installed, repo version is 4.8.2 but AppsAudit / Check for Updates doesn't list it.

There is no iso for 64 version as no minimal X setup available as for TinyCore & CorePlus. You need full Xorg. Also there is no 64 based repo.

dear roberts
upgrades cycle of tinycore releases took frantic pace
but faq and wiki doesn't have time to update behind it
questions like how to use iso bootcode will appear periodically
until add to faq the iso bootcode item and section with this manual
until add tags feature explain to wiki .tcz.info example
will occur errors like no tags records in some info-files
do you plan documentation updates on the website?

Hi,

The 4.4 release doesn't work for me. X refuses to start and complains for a missing  /etc/sysconfig/xsession => Back to 4.3

My boot from Tiny Core System Stats :

BOOT_IMAGE=/tce/boot/vmlinuz
quiet
console=tty12
logo.nologo
tce=sda5
home=sda7
restore=sda7
nozswap
nodhcp
lang=fr
kmap=fr
host=HOC
settime
tz=GMT+2
laptop

My onboot.lst :

cifs-utils.tcz
Xlibs.tcz
Xprogs.tcz
OSS.tcz
kmaps.tcz
flash11.tcz
getlocale.tcz
filesystems-3.0.3-tinycore.tcz
Xorg-7.5-3d.tcz
compiz-base.tcz
wbar.tcz

Another strange thing I've noticed in the "installed" tab of Tiny Core System Stats is the presence of a Xorg-7.6.lib whereas I've specified Xorg-7.5-3d.tcz in onboot.lst. But it works well, so I can't complain ;-)

Xorg-7.5
Xorg-7.5-3d
Xorg-7.5-bin
Xorg-7.6-lib

It's my first post and I want to thank all the developers of TC for their work. It's really a different GNU/ linux distribution with LOTS of simple and good ideas (I love Tiny core System Stats). Haven't seen such clever thing since the Thinstation project.

Hi ibaloo
Xorg-7.6-lib is correct, it's used by both 7.5 and 7.6.
Did you follow all the upgrade instructions?
Quote
Update instructions, from the release distribution files area:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux/4.x/x86/release/distribution_files/
1. Copy over new vmlinuz
2. Copy over new core.gz
3. boot into new system

if You have/use X then
AppsAduit -> Dependencies -> Build Reporting Database -> Fetch Missing

or if you only use Core (no X) or Xorg did not start and only have a system prompt use:
tce-audit builddb
tce-audit fetchmissing

Note: Xprogs.tcz has been updated and is now in the repository.
