Core v4.7.4
« on: January 23, 2013, 09:57:26 AM »

Greetings to the TinyCore Team,
actually I did not find a TinyCore/CorePlus iso-image with Version 4.7.4 in the filename.
Instead I found   core.gz   and   vmlinuz   under 'Release Candidates'.

I have a pendrive, bootably prepared with Version 4.7.3 and some extensions and data.
Within its   Boot/   directory I first deleted the old   core.gz
Then I added the downloaded   core.gz   
and also replaced vmlinuz in the same two-step way.

Then I checked it on a laptop: it works fine.

This is a fast way to also update the core of a pendrive installation, if the AppBrowser indicates a newer core version, no need to repeat the whole installation procedure every times.

Great thanks for this tiny system!

Release Candidates are not the current release.
Please use: http://tinycorelinux.net/4.x/x86/release/
Which is available on the Downloads page.

If you look in http://tinycorelinux.net/4.x/x86/release/distribution_files/
 to get core.gz and vmlinuz then you will have the lastest release.

I'd suggest you run md5sum on your cd device (e.g. /dev/sr0) and compare with the provided md5sum as in repo.

Hi Tiny Core Team!

Have a feeling that something big is cooking. Could it be that preparations for version 5.0 is in the works?  ;)  Whatever is going on thanks for all your hard work!!!  :)

Have fun keeping up the good work,
