Alpha Releases / Re: Tiny Core 14.0 Alpha 1 Testing
« Last post by Rich on Today at 05:48:45 AM »
Hi FlyingDutchman
Perl extensions are version specific and were not copied over because perl was recompiled.
gst-plugins-good-dev.tcz and gst-plugins-ugly-dev.tcz were both last seen in TC10-x86_64.
enchant-dev.tcz likely needs to be changed to enchant2-dev.tcz.
icu67-dev.tcz is listed in js52-dev.tcz.dep and js78-dev.tcz.dep.
python-olefile.tcz was last seen in TC11-x86_64.
linux-5.10_api_headers.tcz should now be linux-6.1_api_headers.tcz. FIXED
xtables-addons-5.10.3-tinycore64.tcz was last seen in TC12-x86_64.

Thank you for reporting this.

Oups, yes, sorry : it's TC 13.1, x86 version (32bits).

It's a stock install, I didn't modify anything so the environment is unchanged in term of GUI.

Hi,

Congrats on the new release. I tested TCL pure64 release 14 on my installation and it works fine. I also did a quick check on the dependency files and found some files listed as dependency, that do not exist in the package folder (http://tinycorelinux.net/14.x/x86_64/tcz/). I don't use these packages, so no issue for me, but maybe someone else may benefit if these issues are resolved. Please note that these issues are in the x86_64 packages. I didn't check the x86 packages.
Code: [Select]
dependency perl_archive_zip.tcz in file auto-multiple-choice.tcz.dep not found
dependency gst-plugins-good-dev.tcz in file gstreamer-editing-services-dev.tcz.dep not found
dependency enchant-dev.tcz in file gtkhtml-dev.tcz.dep not found
dependency perl_xml_simple.tcz in file icon-naming-utils.tcz.dep not found
dependency perl_xml_simple.tcz in file icontool.tcz.dep not found
dependency icu65-dev.tcz in file js68-dev.tcz.dep not found
dependency python-olefile.tcz in file python-pillow.tcz.dep not found
dependency linux-5.10_api_headers.tcz in file tcc.tcz.dep not found
dependency xtables-addons-6.1.2-tinycore64.tcz in file xt_geoip_LE_IPv4.tcz.dep not found

Cheers.

Extension requests / Re: I guess i'm just looking for the easy way out, lol
« Last post by CNK on February 03, 2023, 05:34:46 PM »
The easy way out might be dCore, where missing extensions can be created from Debian packages, as described on the Wiki. Debian packages most software that people want (although TC actually has extensions for some old software that Debian has abandoned).

Oh, I forgot an important trick: If you are compiling something with the intention of creating an extension, build the .tcz file by creating an empty "rootdir" directory and, instead of the usual sudo make install step, do make DESTDIR=/path/to/rootdir install

P.S. I think another reason why such a web interface doesn't exist is that it would make extension creation more complicated, not less.

Hi, mocallins. It's not complicated and shouldn't take 2 pages to describe:

If extension is for your use only:
1. Create a directory that represents system's root directory and call it anything you want--"rootdir" for example
2. In rootdir, put whatever directories and files you want to include in your extension
3. Open a terminal, cd to rootdir's parent directory, then: $ mksquashfs rootdir/ niftyapp.tcz

If you are going to submit the extension:
1. Create a working directory (call it niftyapp_project, for example) and inside of it put the following:
  a. niftyapp.tcz (create as above)
  b. niftyapp.tcz.dep (if applicable)
  c. niftyapp.tcz.info
  d. source code tarball and text file with compilation instructions (if applicable)
2. Open a terminal, cd to niftyapp_project, then:
  a. $ submitqc
  b. $ cd ..
  c. $ tar -cvzf niftyapp.tar.gz niftyapp_project/
  d. $ bcrypt niftyapp.tar.gz (when asked for an encryption password, use tinycore)
3. Email the resulting niftyapp.tar.gz.bfe as an attachment to tcesubmit@gmail.com (if no .dep file exists, mention it in the body of the email)

Don't hold your breath for a web interface. TCL is a self-help distro, like Arch Linux but even more so. You are expected to roll up your sleeves.

Hi mocallins
It sounds like you did not install a proper toolchain. Install  compiletc  and
try again.  compiletc  pulls in  binutils  which includes the full version of  ar.

Wouldn't it be possible for you guys to have a web interace to be able to create extensions for us couple times users.

I don't really have any desire to become an extension creating expert, nor do i bet lots of others.

Anyway someone posted the steps to accomplish and it was like 2 pages long, and referend reading the book.

Isn't this 2023, can't we have  simpler mechnism ?

Just my 2 cents.

Is it that the "ar" included it to new, or to old ?

I've had an error trying to compile a few extentions on multiple versions of TinyCore.

Hi destroyedlolo
Well, you did not state which version of TC and which architecture
you are running.

I tried this under TC13 x86:
Installed dillo onboot.
Marked dillo for removal.
    Apps listed it would remove:
                 ca-certificates, dejavu-fonts-ttf, dillo-beta, and wget
rebooted, desktop came up, fltk-1.3 was still present.

I could see this happening if all of the following were true:
  You are running Xvesa
  You are missing the  .dep  file for your window manager
  And fltk-1.3.tcz was included onboot
