« on: November 09, 2013, 06:23:06 PM »
Team Tinycore is pleased to announce the release of dCore-5.13.11.06.  Changes since dCore-5.13.10.22:

  • tc-functions: getbootparam to properly match a parameter that is a substring, via Gerald Clark.
  • tc-config: Added missing write to /sys/block/zram0/disksize.
  • profile: Adjust to auto start X when specific xorg servers are specified.
  • loadsce: Clean up spurious messages when used from CLI.
  • 90-permission.rules: Added missing rules. 
  • group: Added Debian groups with dCore specifics.
  • .profile: Cosmetic cleanup of root/.profile upon boot.
  • etc/skel/.profile: Using check for /usr/bin/Xorg for automatic X starting
  • loadsce: Adding /opt to paths linked to system during extension loading. 
  • loadsce: Adding sudo to the find commands to find files not readable by non-privileged user.

Getbootparam() is still not working.

result="${CMDLINE##*$1=}"
should be
result="${CMDLINE##* $1=}"

There is a missing space.

My bad, I overlooked that file.  Reposted corrected dCore.gz and dCore-5.13.11.06.iso.

As we use Core's kernel, when Core releases a kernel update we will follow.

hi jason w,

during the boot i get still the swap-error message and no swap-device is installed:
Unable to find swap-space signature
swap-on: /dev/zram0: Invalid argument

my desktop is not loaded automatically, although i included the boot-parameter desktop=fluxbox in my syslinux.cfg. perhaps my .xsession is not confirm anymore, cause it has many individual configurations from former tinycore-environments...

thank you for your help.

The zram fix is another file I overlooked.  Reposted with fix.  Thanks for reporting!

With the differences in the X environment in dCore as opposed to Core, so starting with a fresh .xinitrc and similar files would be a good starting point.

hi jason w,

swap is created fine :-) !

now i used the .xinitrc from /etc/skel and copied it in my home-dir,
but nevertheless fluxbox doesn't start automatically.
usually i'm used to configure a .xsession-file!?
actually i had no luck with both alternatives...

thank you for every hint and help.

Are you using a backup of your ~/.profile file?

I downloaded the new dCore .gz file and re-imported the desktop sce's. Now when I do a shutdown I get an error message about xserver still running. FWIW I copied over the /etc/skel/.profile to /home/tc/.profile, with no apparent effect.

hi jason w,

yeah, you've got it :)
fluxbox starts fine with the .profile, i found in /etc/skel/.

thank you for your help.

using the kernel inside the iso the system hangs during loading extensions, booting with base norestore and tryng to loadsce an extension, hags. Also eth0 doesn't exists.
I've attached dmesg.
Using the older kernel I've no problem.

What older kernel?
That could be the sync problem.  Just let it sit for about 15 minutes and see if it finishes.
