TCB Talk / Re: black screen after x starts
« Last post by cast-fish on September 19, 2014, 08:56:17 PM »
right Misalf,

uh.....it's clearly some Xorg incompatability.  trying to download them two extensions again can sometimes work.

tried it here a few times. ......"xorg  7.4"   and graphics add on extension called  "graphics 3.0.3"    from the appBrowser

uh, just out of interest.....on win32.....if using very old hardware, again you can right click and select compatability mode of any app and check 640  by 480.....when i max screen Youtube doing this it yields a good movie experience at several resolutions......

I use the REDITT list of "full youtube movies free"    .   Againk, i think this is down to cpu horsepower
and the embeded generic win32 graphic driver for all GPU chipsets in existence.   (win XP i am talking about here)


yes

thx


Vince.

Of course, linux-like workstation/server level multiprocessing environment is very complex.

Even command-line environment is very complex, but typically at X-term/grafical environment complexity explodes.

There are several API-layers, window manager libraries, many inter-process signaling systems and whatever-have-ever-invented qizmos.

And there are thousands of coders scattered over word using his/her favorite editor, compiler, language, programming style etc..

And I'm sure, there is still native C-code from -70:ies unix, (at least on sendmail source code...)

So, is there applications on "/lib" "/usr/lib"? Nobody knows, I think ...

I cannot think of any case where an extension needs to have libraries in /usr or /usr/lib - some, like hplip, are more difficult than others, but usually no problems are encountered.

Perhaps you could give an example?

Sorry, i have very little experience with compiling linux applications, so I cannot give proper answer to that. I have compiled SANE source, and found that there is standard makefile/config system and libraries can be installed at desired installation point. That anyway requires some coding discipline and "hardcoding" is always possible.

I have few year professional experience with C/asm embedded coding, and I have build large programs and C-libraries, so I have some experience with problems in C-library maintenance.

But it is anyway up to linux community rules, technically it can be whatever wanted. And if 97% of applications are well coded and 3%  (flashplayer) is not, it is still problem.

Kernel itself is probably statically linked, so this "distro-problem".

I don't have found dCore documentation, but it it said to be "mountable extension system" whatever that means, is one possible way to solve this problem.

From the Installation page:
The older instructions for <a href="install_manual.html">a manual install</a> are still available, but using the installer is recommended.

when googling for "tinycore frugal install" the second hit I get is a link to an outdated page: http://tinycorelinux.net/install_manual.html. Apparently this page is unreachable through links on the main site; I think it would be better, if the page is deleted completely or at least adjusted to reflect the changes done with the move to 4.2, i.e. the modular refactoring and the separate installer.

I have found that there seems to be an issue when using an ext2 formatted usb drive.

I will look into it.

Tinycore main principal to reserve "/lib" and "usr/lib" directories for TC system is nice and clean but it is not possible becouse of bad application code.

It has some time when I tried to compile SANE, so situation may be better nowdays.

Tinycore main principal to reserve "/lib" and "usr/lib" directories for TC system is nice and clean but it is not possible becouse of bad application code. If is not possible to isolate .tcz packakes to "/usr/local" directory. If "lib", "usr/lib", "/etc" directories have to be opened to application stuff it must be controlled somehow.

Using subdirectories is not good idea (tried several times), library directories must be linear (dynamic linking problems).

Good solution this problem is obviously very difficult to find.

Is dCore The Solution for this problem?
