The md5 summs for modules.gz and modules64.gz don't seem to match?

Code: [Select]
tc@apollo:/mnt/sda1/boot/core7.0$ for X in *.txt ; do md5sum -c $X ; done
core.gz: OK
modules.gz: FAILED
md5sum: WARNING: 1 computed checksum did NOT match
modules64.gz: FAILED
md5sum: WARNING: 1 computed checksum did NOT match
rootfs.gz: OK

Also, I've always wondered - why no md5 sums for vmlinuz and vmliunz64 ?

The Linux Mint thing makes me more conscious of these things than I used to be.
32 bit core4.7.7, Xprogs, Xorg-7.6, wbar, jwm
PPR, data persistence through filetool.sh
USB Flash drive, one partition, ext2, grub4dos

on welcome page, maybe a small corection?
for "v7.0 Core v7.0 updates the linux kernel version to 4.2.9
There are no major changes to the base, but Xorg-7.7 and alsa have been refactored/updated.
See System Announcement in the support forum for detailed change log and update notes. "

The Welcome page still shows the latest version as 6.4.1.

Hello

This message mentions that the 64-bit config will have scsi_virtio in version 7 but I can't see that in the release notes.

http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,19035.msg116911.html#msg116911

Do you know if scsi_virtio is enabled in V7.0?

thanks

Yes:
Code: [Select]
$ grep SCSI_VIRTIO config-4.2.9-tinycore*
config-4.2.9-tinycore:CONFIG_SCSI_VIRTIO=y
config-4.2.9-tinycore64:CONFIG_SCSI_VIRTIO=y
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Note that the corepure64 files have been reposted to fix an issue with /usr/bin/locale.
