No, actually it has no dependencies.
Update your dep files.

The updated ncurses.tcz has a number of .dev dependencies. Is that usual?

Thanks Greg.  I managed to boot to the piCore-6.1beta1_v7-X version on the pi2.  Not quite sure what to expect, only a minimalist console, startx not found.  I will watch for later editions

Strange?

No.
VNC require that you run X on the remote system.
ssh -X with a local X server allows you to display the remote GUI app locally.

Those MIPS routers really are memory and CPU deficient.
I would not try running X apps on them.
Even my ASUS running Tomato has trouble running  slimserver with reasonable response time.

Right Gerald.

The reason i ask is that there are some spare Router boxes here with
300mhz dual core cpu and 64 meg ram and 2 meg SSD and a USB slot.

There is a version of a particular Distro which i am sure you know about
as the industry standard embedded distro. There is a version specific to the chip
inside these routers and it is the correct firmare.

I intend to flash the chip with this embedded distro firmware so the router then runs
Linux for me.


The reason for this is to just get usage out of the routers....one project i want
to do is a WI FI internet radio. This is real easy and uses the USB port on the
router for a USB soundcard. It makes a lovely WI FI internet radio system. (see below)


The embedded Linux in question does not have many GUI apps in the repo
but there are 3.5k of apps in there....mainly command line apps ....but there
are things like music daemons....music deamon clients.....web browsers like
"elinks" and many many more terminal apps "sceen" for example.

The cpu is a MIPS archicteture and i have already found many other apps compiled for
this Linux distro under MIPS , included "mplayer" and "Links" browser and many
more.

I realize i can compile ANY gui app for this Distro but i never tried it....such as
say "Abiword" or "Leadpad".

But as far as i see it, with your desctiption about VNC then i should "see" movie
playback on my client machine coming from the work done by Mplayer on
the router machine's CPU.  since "mplayer" will be run in framebuffer and
also "Links" browser.

To me, that's reason enough to stop cobwebs on a router and actually use it.
There are infact 4 routers here that have the Distro available for thier chip
and they have good specs with a USB port.

The routers are "Bt home hub 3" and "Orange Livebox 92be" and a Huwai router
and also a "Brightbox".

i listen to a lot of internet radio and using a router means no power wasted
driving a laptop...so

Yes, the X server writes to the frame buffer on the headless server.  The VNC viewer just mirrors the servers frame buffer on its display.

Another option is to run X on your display machine and connect to the headless server with "ssh -X".
Then you run the X applications on the headless machine, and they display on your display machine.
This does not require VNC, but it does require that the display machine run X.  There are X servers for Windows as well as Linux/Unix.

Remember, the X server is the display.  The X client is the program sending its output to the X server.
This terminology is somewhat backwards from what you might think.

dCore X86 / Re: few service questions

debGetDeps:
Code: [Select]
elif grep "^$PKG:" /tmp/PKGPREBUILTDEP > /dev/null 2>&1; then
DEPLIST="$DEPLIST `grep "^$PKG:" /tmp/PKGPREBUILTDEP | cut -f2 -d:`"
else
DEPLIST is appended with its previous value?
if previous DEPLIST value is dirty, dont we risk to load wrong PKGs?

also

2 same greps are done here, since getDeps is recursive, might be better optimized for speed?
e.g. load the first grep result in a variable, and use it down in replace of the second grep?

=================
sce-import , the -l option.
if given a wrong list file name, it drops down the cp usage... might appropriate to trap this exception?
