TCB Talk / Re: Linux on new hardware?
« Last post by coreplayer2 on Today at 02:57:58 PM »
Mostly the latest gear..  A recent edition to my systems is an ASUS Gaming Notebook, Core i7 (7th gen), 16 GB Ram, SSD, Nvidia GTX 1070.  & a 4k monitor via HDMI, UEFI multi boot & Secure Boot disabled to run Tinycore and Corepure64.  I think hardware manufacturers would be shooting themselves in the foot without providing a means to overide features designed for the corporate world.

I found the existing tce scripts give you all the tools to maintain extensions.

Incomplete list of tinycore command line tools.

Code: [Select]
Command          Function
ab                     browse local and remote applications
tce                    browse local and remote applications
tce-ab                 browse local and remote applications
tce-audit
tce-fetch.sh
tce-load               load local applications
tce-remove             allow removal of uninstalled (OnDemand) extensions via tce-audit
tce-run                download and run applications
tce-setdrive
tce-setup
tce-size               show total size of extension and dependencies
tce-update
tcemirror.sh

There's a helper script, tce-fetch.sh, that can be used. "tce-fetch.sh nano.tcz.info" will download that to the current dir.

Right now I'm using Tinycore Pure64 on an Acer AXC-704G-UW61 desktop with UEFI enabled.  Got it as a clean refurb with Win10 installed.

I was easily able to disable secure-boot.  It was also easy to disable UEFI and enable the CSM legacy bios compatability mode.  From what I understand, all the Acer bios' of the XC range are easily changed.  (except perhaps for the very lowest end model).

However, I actually re-enabled UEFI for use with TC Pure64, since it seems to be just *slightly* faster  in graphics than the older legacy bios mode.

Many thanks to the devs for making TC64 a hybrid!  Boots nicely no matter what mode I'm in, and right now I'm running solely from cd/dvd with a persistent usb store.  Later I'll make the usb-stick bootable.

Other EFI capable distros boot no problem, even from stick, but of course TC64 is my favorite.

I thought I was going to have to fight Acer, but in fact it was very easy to choose what mode you want to run.

General TC Talk / Re: Font improvements in ~/.Xdefaults
« Last post by PDP-8 on December 11, 2017, 06:16:48 PM »
Update:  found a solution with scaled fonts instead.

Even though my go-to quickies of using

aterm -fn 10x20
or
aterm -fn 12x24

got me up and running, I wanted even larger grandpa-sized fonts. :)  Sacrificing just a little bit of size vs scaling jaggies, the font line in .Xdefaults now looks like this:

Code: [Select]
aterm*font:*-*-fixed-medium-r-normal--*-280-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1
This is adjusting the font's via the point size option.  Alternatively one could use the pixel-size specificity order something like this:

Code: [Select]
aterm*font:*-*-fixed-medium-r-normal--42-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1
For me, with a default stock install of TC64, using the 280 point size option is pleasant enough to use for me.  Need to eat more carrots. :)

Perhaps an option in tce-load to download the list and info files for an extension, just as a starting point?  I used to do that with a script but it turned out I pretty much never used those files anyhow... I had thought to write some additional utility scripts but it's still on my ever growing to-do list.

Run "tce-audit builddb", that's a necessary step for most of the other functions. You don't need to pass the directory if using the default, like you are.

Code: [Select]
root@TCL:~# tce-audit notrequired /etc/sysconfig/tcedir/
/usr/bin/tce-audit: line 282: can't open tce.lst: no such file
The following are NOT required by any other extensions:

for any action tce-audit says that can not find tce.lst. For what is this file?

Did you try APPS ?

Quote
tce can not show list of extensions on local storage, list of dependencies. It can not delete extension, can't even show TCZ info

APPS is the Tinycore Extension Manager, it performs all the above and more...
