Core v4.6.1
« on: September 05, 2012, 10:18:54 PM »
Core 4.6.1 a minor bug fix and adjustments release is now available at
http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/tinycorelinux/4.x/x86/release

Change log:
* Updated ondemand. Added hash -r to generated ondemand scripts to better support CLI and non-menu extensions.
* Updated filetool.sh. Added encryption key integrity check before restore.
* Updated rebuildfstab. Added support for network block devices.
* Updated tc-config. Added nortc (no real time clock) boot code for arm devices.
* Updated tce-ab. Cosmetic title change to reflect new name.

Note: You should regenerate ondemand items for any cli or other non-menu ondemand items. This will ensure that they are accessible from the command prompt.

AFAIK, userspace is still i486 with core64 anyway.

I have the 4.5.6 but I do not think these things have been updated in 4.6.1:
scm-load -h returns error while tce-load -h has a list of parameters, scm-load without parameters show his list.
would also be possible describe each parameter in addition to the list?
Thanks

Both were updated in 4.6.1
Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ scm-load
Version 4.6.1
Usage scm-load [-b, -i, -w, -r] name{.scm}
  -i   Loads local extension
  -wi  Download and install extension
  -w   Download extension only
  -r   Unmount extension

Example usage:
 Load local extension:
   scm-load -i /mnt/hda1/tce/optional/tar.scm
 Download into tce/optional directory, updates OnBoot and installs:
   scm-load -w -i tar.scm
 Download only into tce/optional directory:
   scm-load -w tar.scm
 Unmount extension:
   scm-load -r tar.scm

Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ tce-load
Version 4.6.1
Usage: tce-load [ -i -w -wi -wo -wil -ic -wic -wicl]{s} extensions
  -i   Loads local extension
  -wi  Download and install extension
  -w   Download extension only
  Adding -c to any of the -i options will force a one time copy to file system
  Adding -s to any of the options will suppress OK message used by appbrowser

Example usage:
 Load local extension:
   tce-load -i /mnt/hda1/tce/optional/nano.tcz
 Download into tce/optional directory, updates OnBoot and installs:
   tce-load -w -i nano.tcz

excellent but seems that in the scm-load  parameter -b is not described and in tce-load -o and -l are not.

is also  changed the default behavior of tce-load -wi puts the application onboot?

I guess it is good sign that we are down to only documentation / help.
It is not like that these are compiled and therefore inaccessible programs that the script cannot be referenced. Don't you know programmers hate doing docs.

I understand roberts, though you may not know if the person who will use your script also knows how to read and understand them:

scm-load:
-b is to put extension to boot?

tce-load:
-l need to does not put the program in the bootlist?
-o neet to put app to ondeman?

You are now referencing internal use only flags, e.g., the system is booting, etc.
