3. Update the info file for package wireless_tools.tcz so it keeps up with the current kernel version. Right now the info file mentions 2.6.29.1, but the dep file cites wireless-KERNEL.tcz.

Done

bug:
in the 64bit kernel the Xserver starts it does vm86  panic unknown execution codes.. when i install xorgs 7.4 it works but with 7.4 i can't change the display resolution.
at the begining the xsetup not works because of the same reason

bug:
also in 32bit and 64bit  the gcc  include path doesn't work properly.
i have downlodeded nginx and the configure script cant compalie a simple code  
it says cant find sys/types.h

complaint:
on 32 and 64 the default resolution is 800x600 and it is too small
the resolution as in tinycore2 is good.

bad ideas:
i dont like the gray. i like the windows 7 color scheme.
or the bumptop default color scheme.
i was play around  with a cmyk color, suppose the y is heat of color I set it to 50%, m is warning-ness of color I set it to 0, C is life or comness I set it to 100%,  k is brightness I set it to somthing pleasent not too bright not too dark, maybe Golden ratio 38/62 may do the work.
how about thouse bg colors: #005b72(C100 M0 Y13 K60) or #00766d(C100 M0 Y50 K38 ) or #006991 or #03493a or #00aab0  ... (limited liability warning: this color theory i developed today on the spot so it might be totaly wrong and there is no replacment for trained eyes of a professional designer).

tinycore64.gz has been withdrawn due to the fact that Xvesa does not work. Xorg is required.
Please test microre64.gz together with Xlibs.gz, Xprogs.gz, ...

Likely you installed only gcc, without the rest; try compiletc.tcz.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

there is no xprogs package

tinycore64.gz was built from microcore64.gz plus the other gzipped cpio'ed initramfs files as found here:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/tinycorelinux/3.x/release_candidates/microcore/

It is where you will find Xlibs.gz, Xprogs.gz, ...

It's not multilib.  64-bit applies to kernel related stuff only afaik.

Well unfortunately that didn't work so well. Mounted the extension, modded xorg.conf. 2-finger scrolling now works but tapping is totally disabled. No amount of fiddling with parameters that looked likely, had any effect.

How about trying to use that which was in the previous kernel? I notice from dmesg that previously the input devices were shown a bit differently. I suppose that is due to the new kernel?

psmouse.proto should be your option; see kernel-parameters.txt for what protocols it takes.
Right. I finally got to proper experimentation with this, and found the boot option psmouse.proto=imps seems to get all functions working as before. Thanks!

True.

The 64-bit cross-toolchain can be found in the toolchain64.tcz extension.
