Using microcore + X*.tcz..

When using the apps audit gui, I see four extension to be updated gtk2, gtk2-dev, libwnck and libwnck-dev. Selecting just one of the extensions, libwnck and clicking on "update selected", libwnck is downloaded (deps openssl-0.9.8, gtk2) and glibc_apps, which does not appear to be a recursive dep?

--- Code: ---$ cat /tmp/apps_upd.lst
Updating libwnck.tcz OK
Checking dependencies:
Fetching required dependency: glibc_apps.tcz OK
Fetching required dependency: gcc.tcz
--- End code ---

Could not reproduce. Worked as expected:

--- Code: ---tc@dev:~$ cat /tmp/apps_upd.lst
Updating libwnck.tcz OK
Checking dependencies:
tc@dev:~$ ls -l  /mnt/sdb1/testing/optional/upgrade/
total 124

-rw-r--r--    1 tc       staff           45 Apr  9 05:44 libwnck.tcz.md5.txt

--- End code ---

Hmm - perhaps my lousy internet connection, I'll try again tomorrow

if I start HD / USB install from control panel, appears and disappears quickly a black terminal window.
From what i understand is a command line installer and tc-install is a gui version, but i can find this second command on tinycore but not in microcore.
