Core v4.6rc1
« on: August 02, 2012, 06:56:45 PM »
The first release candidate of Core 4.6 is ready for public testing:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/tinycorelinux/4.x/x86/release_candidates

Change Log:
* New mirrorpicker GUI - Select fastest mirror.
* Updated Apps GUI to add first run and menu option for mirrorpicker GUI.
* Updated ScmApps GUI to add first run and menu option for mirrorpicker GUI.
* Updated tce-status added -o option for orphan file checking.
* Updated Apps GUI to add Orphan file check.
* Updated tc-config improved PRETCE raid disk support.
* Renamed ab to tcb to avoid Apache name conflict and allow to start without specifying a search target.

Note: Requires new Xprogs.tcz also in the rc testing area until final release.

Hi AbNoRMiS
I'm guessing it stands for  Tiny Core Browser.

Orphan file check does not work with ftp mirrors.
Mirror picker hangs on non responding mirrors like ftp.sh.cvut.cz.

Mirror picker hangs on non responding mirrors like ftp.sh.cvut.cz.

wget's default timeout is used currently, maybe it should be shortened a bit.

But the main issue was unresponsive mirrors, so mirrors.tcz is updated with the Czech and Poland mirrors removed (Czech unresponsive, Poland didn't carry Core any more).
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Orphan file check does not work with ftp mirrors.

Code: [Select]
BusyBox v1.20.1 (2012-05-31 03:26:11 UTC) multi-call binary.

Usage: wget [-c|--continue] [-s|--spider] [-q|--quiet] [-O|--output-document FILE]
        [--header 'header: value'] [-Y|--proxy on/off] [-P DIR]
        [--no-check-certificate] [-U|--user-agent AGENT] [-T SEC] URL...

Retrieve files via HTTP or FTP

        -s      Spider mode - only check file existence
        -c      Continue retrieval of aborted transfer
        -q      Quiet
        -P DIR  Save to DIR (default .)
        -T SEC  Network read timeout is SEC seconds
        -O FILE Save to FILE ('-' for stdout)
        -U STR  Use STR for User-Agent header
        -Y      Use proxy ('on' or 'off')

I am using the -s option.  From above it would seem a busybox issue. I will disable orphan file checking if current mirror is an ftp site.

Craze, really?
How about you asking the Apache group not to name Apache Benchmark ab?
Such change was prompted because I am trying to improve Core's CLI usage.
Loading the apache extension supplants ab in search path.

Hi roberts
One small suggestion. Maybe  tce-ab , this way the naming convention will be in line with other scripts of this
nature. Leaving the  ab  in the name might serve as a reminder of what the command used to be called.

While so far typing "ab" was extremely convenient when frequently used, IMHO "tce-ab" is not - as "tce-" could not be uniquely tab-completed (and after having to type "tce-a" tab-completion is not of any benefit anymore).
Plus the "-" key is somehow remote on kb in relation to the others.

Just my $0.02  ;)

Regardless of what it is called, one could always create a link to it with a name of their choice if they wish.
