I'm running this with Xorg and the new tcz core components. Everything is working as expected.

It was reported that Xterm was not transparent when using Xprogs.tcz on a base norestore microcore boot after running tce-setup.

Issue fixed and Xprogs.tcz reposted:

Easy to get...
1. in .Xdefaults set "Aterm*transparent: " to "false"
or
2. set depth for X to max. 15bits   ;)

1. is why I didn't notice :)

An other thing about aterm makes me angry a lot: copy'n'paste over multiple lines copies the whole width's white spaces at the end of the line instead of just the new line char.

Personally I use:
in .Xdefaults set "Aterm*transparent: " to "false"

But the point is that microcore + repacked core components should result in tinycore.
Therefore the change was implemented.

As a follow-up, I took the liberty to open a new thread here:

as this is a subject which is not particular to the release candidate.

I've the copy2fs flag
I've this command in /opt/bootsync.sh:
su `cat /etc/sysconfig/tcuser` -c "tce-load -i Xorg-7.5-3d wireless_tools"
Xorg is loaded in ram but wireless_tools and wireless-2.6.33.3-tinycore are loop mounted
