@Mike

Prepare to be initiated into darkest C secret #4587, the automatic concat of strings ;)

Quote
#define TERM "xterm"

system(TERM " -e nano");

This would preprocess to

Quote
system("xterm" " -e nano");

Which would then compile as

Quote
system("xterm -e nano")

Hi curaga.  I know that one!  I use it.  I don't think it's too helpful here... I'd like to make things flexible for users, so the terminal to use should probably be something configurable in the .conf file.  That way, if the user has installed an alternate terminal emulator and prefers using it, she/he can configure Fluff to use it too.  Maybe need a way to pass the local directory to start in to the configurable terminal command too.  I make no promise on when I might implement this kind of configurability.  :P

To compile fluff_1.0.7  in TC-5.0 Alpha, a minor change to the makefile and an additional dependency is needed.

First, " fltk-1.1.10-dev.tcz " is required to compile

additionally the following change to the makefile.  Seems like a change to the linker in g++ ??

linking libstdc++.so.0.6 to the command line in fluff's makefile

from this

Code: [Select]
all: ${PROG}.cpp
g++ ${CXXFLAGS} `fltk-config --cxxflags` -Wall -c ${PROG}.cpp
gcc `fltk-config --use-images --ldflags` -lfltk_images -lm ${PROG}.o -o ${PROG}
strip ${PROG}
echo `ls -l fluff`


to this

Code: [Select]
all: ${PROG}.cpp
g++ ${CXXFLAGS} `fltk-config --cxxflags` -Wall -c ${PROG}.cpp
gcc `fltk-config --use-images --ldflags` -lfltk_images -lstdc++ -lm ${PROG}.o -o ${PROG}
strip ${PROG}
echo `ls -l fluff`

fluff now compiles in TC-5.0-Alpha  and runs great (despite a couple of additional minor warnings)

You shouldn't use gcc to link c++. It will crash and burn.

Thank you for the heads up, that is as I understand also.   but that was the resolution recommended by the compiler error message.   So have pm'd MikeLockmoore

Thanks coreplayer2 for the build suggestions.  I would like to set up an installation of TC 5.0 Alpha on a USB stick and do some tests and at least minor updates to my FLTK app packages including Fluff over the next several weeks.  I won't have much time in the next week or so however.  :(

My new main Linux laptop is a < 1 year-old Sandy-Bridge-class dual core Pentium machine from ASUS, which came with Windows 7 and I think uses UEFI  for the boot loader.  Any advice on how to set up a bootable TC 5.0 USB stick to work with this?  Or anybody?  :)  I've hesitated because TC 4.7 has been out so long and now TC 5.0 is coming and I was not sure how well UEFI is supported.

Currently, I have Xubuntu 12.04 installed on the hard drive along with a boot option for Windows 7 (which I only use to grab pictures from an SD memory card because that drive is completely dead in Xubuntu).  But if I get back to using TC again regularly, I would do a better job of keeping the apps maintained, maybe even improved.  Later, after TC 5.0 is officially released, I would like to do a full frugal or similar install on my hard drive.

There's a whole thread on the efi/uefi saga:

http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,13445.msg89096.html#msg89096

In short tc-5.x (and tc-4.x with a recompiled kernel) will boot from a usb stick on both mac (efi) and pc (uefi) and I've tested tc-5.x on both.

BTW - a couple of your fltk apps need recompiling for the updated libpng in tc-5.x  ;)

Thanks Juanito.  I think I've read some of that thread before, but I need to do so more carefully so I can get a good working installation.  I want to make sure my stuff compiles and runs properly with the new TC series.

That's a bug in fluff's Makefile, already been mentioned. It tries to use a C compiler for C++ code.

Yeah, I guess gcc would link the C++ stuff in my earlier Tiny Core installations.  Just change gcc to g++ for the link step in the makefile, if you have not yet.

I've tried again to get TC 5.0 running on my current laptop without success, probably because this laptop has UEFI boot firmware (but not SecureBoot, thank goodness). 

I have tried a few different ways to do a USB stick installation and a frugal hard disk installation and so far nothing works.  Perhaps I will post the specifics of some of my recent attempts to see if anyone can offer some suggestions.

Just to get tc booting, have you tried setting legacy mode (or legacy USB, or...) within the BIOS.  All UEFI BIOS capable pc's should come with a legacy option.
Once booted, you should be able to install grub v2 to your USB drive using the appropriate tc-5.x extension.

As a precautionary measure, AIUI it's not advisable to boot to your existing install while in legacy mode.  At least make a backup

Good luck,

I'm still using the re-compiled latest version from this thread in tc-5.x, maybe I'll take a look at the makefile..
