Tiny Core v11.0
« on: February 09, 2020, 04:22:53 AM »
Team Tiny Core is proud to announce the release of Core v11.0
http://www.tinycorelinux.net/11.x/x86/release
http://www.tinycorelinux.net/11.x/x86_64/release

Changelog for 11.0:
* kernel updated to 5.4.3
* glibc updated to 2.30
* gcc updated to 9.2.0
* e2fsprogs base libs/apps updated to 1.45.4
* util-linux base libs/apps updated to 2.34
* busybox updated to 1.31.1
* .ashrc removed #alias d='dmenu_run &'

Note:

* we discovered a bug on the 32-bit version, in Intel IOMMU, preventing boot. If you have a high-end Intel system with IOMMU and VT-D, you may need intel_iommu=off to boot the 32-bit version
* the nouveau kernel module is now enabled, but it is in a separate extension and not in graphics-KERNEL. The nvidia binary driver is still recommended.
* Intel compute sticks, etc should now detect their embedded mmc flash
* for 64 bit version only: task_xacct and ipmi are enabled
* we will move extensions from linking to openssl-1.0.2 -> 1.1.1 as 1.0.2 is at end of life
* Xorg-7.7 will move from using the depreciated xf86-input-evdev to xf86-input-libinput, it is still possible to use xf86-input-evdev if required

Note also:

* There has been an attempt to remove old and/or depreciated versions of giflib, gstreamer, icu, ncurses, openssl, qt-4.x, readline, webkit, etc from the repos and hence extensions that depend on them may not be present. If you are missing an extension, please highlight this here: http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,23440.0.html

When I boot the CorePlus 11.0 iso, it says Booting Core 10.1

Hi thane
The version is listed in 2 files (that I'm aware of):
Code: [Select]
/etc/os-release
/usr/share/doc/tc/release.txt
I'm guessing 1 or both of those files wasn't updated. Probably  /etc/os-release  since that was a recent addition.

CorePlus-current.iso shows the version as 10.1 in both files. However CorePlus-11.0.iso does show 11.0 when it boots, although the timestamp and file size are the same for both iso's. Hmmm

Hi thane
I think you are mistaken. I downloaded both versions and a  diff  shows them to be the same. I also checked the  release  files in
both directories and they showed  11.0.  Since all versions contain a  CorePlus-current.iso  I suspect you mixed them up and
inadvertently used a  10.1  ISO.

The link on newbielink:http://www.tinycorelinux.net/downloads.html [nonactive] still directs to 10.x, this is probably the reason for the confusion.

Hi FreeFull
Welcome to the forum.

Yes it does, nice catch. In fact, all 3 links (Core, TinyCore, and CorePlus) still point to the 10.1 release directory.

thane must have downloaded his initial ISO from there.

Yes, think I did, then went to the Release Files page for 11.0.iso, and saw the .current.iso version there was the same size and timestamp. Didn't investigate any further :/ Anyway, so far so good with 11.0.

I didn't notice some changes. Are they documented somewhere? Please let me know, where to look.

Flwm_topside is no longer the default windows managers. Is this an intentional change?

With going to openssl-1.1.1.tcz there is no more wpa_supplicant extension, only the one with the suffix -dbus.  Isn't that the x86_64 variant (=download&s[]=tcz]http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/wiki:setting_up_wifi?s[]=download&s[]=tcz)? They seem to have at least different dependencies.

as far as I know, flwm_topside is a modified version of the default flwm

this was done to avoid having to compile wpa_supplicant twice - the dbus daemon does not need to be running for it to work.

In general TC 11.0 is working fine for me.

In Apps/Maintenance/Check for Updates I do see the message "Warning: You are running version 11.0. The latest release is 10.1"

Also, a couple apps I use (audacious, flpicsee) apparently have not been migrated to the 11.0 repo. I retained the 10.1 versions when I updated and they appear to work fine in 11.0.

The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

A compile-time variant. The 10.1 ISO and previous ones contain only flwm_topside. The 11.0 ISO only contains flwm. A matter of packaging. I'm just curious why this was changed and if this was/is intended.

It only confused me, when reading the wiki entry. No big deal.

Curaga - see http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,23523.0.html

I think you updated it to 11 - when 11.0 was more appropriate...
