Add an option (checkbox) to FLRun to run program in a terminal box. Now you have to use 'aterm -e <command>' for non-gui applications.
Added to my todo list.

How would you know whether it is a GUI or CLI application?

AppsAudit: 'check for updates' litters ~ with info files. Should these be in /tmp instead?
Good catch. Thanks! Will be done for next cut of 3.7.

Minor cosmetics: in AppsAudit/Updates move 'Check for Updates' to the top of menu and put 'Select Mirror' to second.
OK for next cut.

In case of doubt it could not harm to run a GUI app from an terminal emulator  ;)

It was moved from base to an extension.

For more info, search the forum for "fluff".

I have been testing the install.gz starter pack.  Nice job!

Starter packs work really well with PXE boot.
Just point nfsmount in the PXE config file to a directory that contains the boot files and the starter packs.
"Load Starter Pack" and "tc-install" both work when browsing /mnt/nfs.
