Core v4.7rc2
« on: October 14, 2012, 04:58:43 PM »
The second release candidate of Core 4.7 is ready for public testing:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/tinycorelinux/4.x/x86/release_candidates

Change Log: RC1

    Updated filetool - New GUI access to ,filetool.lst, .xfiletool.lst, and backup options.
    Updated filetool.sh to interface to updated filetool GUI.
    Updated ondemand to suport scm extensions.
    Updated scmapps GUI for new ondemand maintenace.
    Updated scm to interface to updated scmaps GUI
    Updated apps GUI - New Check Onboot Unneeded and changes required by ondemand scm support.
    New chkonboot.sh for cli Core only use.
    Updated tce-setup for consistency in handling onboot.lst and scmlist.lst, dropped .scm from scmlist.lst items.

Note: Requires new Xprogs.tcz (apps, scmapps, filetool) also in the rc testing area until final release.

Change Log RC2:
  • Updated loadcpufreq to allow blacklisting
  • Fixed reported issues with OnBoot checking
  • Fixed reported issues with OnDemand scm launching
  • Updated apps and scmaps GUI to support relative path.
  • Updated wbar as required for new OnDemand structure

Note: Requires new wbar.tcz and Xprogs.tcz (apps, scmapps, filetool) also in the rc testing area until final release.

Note:
Having both scm and tcz in ondemand means changes to tcz ondemand. Specifically, icons would only be
displayed when extensions are loaded. All ondemand items both scm and tcz would be available in the ondemand menu.
From the ondemand menu, item will be loaded and if specified by a freedesktop item will also be launched.
Then the regular menu item and icon, if any, will be updated and displayed. Subsequent launching of the item
will be via the regular menu or displayed icon. Subsequent ondemand menu selection for an scm item will
unmount it and remove the regular menu item and associated icon if any. Subsequent ondemand menu selection
for a tcz will produce no action.

All ondemand items need to be re-created for the new format.

one more negative result of new ondemand format
became impossible to bind registered file mime types
with programs which is installed ondemand
to be able by using file manager such as pcmanfm
open any file types in programs which process them

i already wrote here http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,14171.msg79844.html#msg79844
that md5 check is excessive when loading scm and only leads to slower system booting on usb slow media
edited: and also on old computers

p.s.
if it is possible please make plastic surgery for system boot face screen
in order to tcz and scm loading look similar each other in new version

hi roberts,

now libreoffice.scm starts in the the ondemand-menue at the first time flawless, too.
to unload the ondemand-scm-item works as expected, fine.
thank you for that great feature that scms are included in the ondemand-menue!

Quote
BTW in the ondemand gui i could not delete the ondemand item,
so i deleted it manually.
in the scm-gui the option for deleting a ondemand-scm-item still doesn't work for me.

i was suprised that my two most important programs (browser and mail),
are not shown in wbar anymore... cause i load them ondemand.
i enjoy to boot a very lean environment and almost everything is loaded ondemand.
it's no problem to load them when they are needed, because i use shortcuts, the wbar oder i start even the fluxbox-menue with shortcuts...
i would be happy to include also ondemand, not loaded programs in wbar further..
i don't mind to edit files or to solve it in a config-file manually :)

again 4.7rc2 is a good, stable piece of work.

displayed when extensions are loaded.
I see the need with scm, but unfortunately it makes for a lack of convenience for on-demand tcz users  ;)

I recreated them and noticed that loading emelfm/opera9 from the on-demand menu item brought up the icons, whereas loading beaver brought up the icon and started the app - so far I didn't manage to spot why this should be...

i found some curious issues in new backup interface
1. there is possible add files but impossible add folders to green and yellow lists
2. 'Select Item to Add' button deactivated when item was marked and activated if juggle tabs
3. honestly i don't guessed that 'Clear' button beside 'Delete' does not remove all items
    but only activates 'Select Item to Add' button again
    because was bit scary to press it :)

maybe if don't disable 'Select Item to Add' button in general
then this strange 'Clear' button also will be unneeded ;)

p.s.
it seems to me that title 'Select Item to Add' may be reduced to 'Add Item'
or even just 'Add' because 'Delete' and 'Add' seems quite understandable

and also it would be nice to clarify tabs titles for newbies for example
Code: [Select]
Items to include (.filetool.lst)
Items to exclude (.filetool.lst)
i think you can agree that enough space for this and it is much clearer

hi coreplayer,

for me the "Check Onboot Unneeded" feature works still fine.
perhaps your onboot.lst is just perfect and there is nothing anymore that is unneeded in your onboot.lst?
it would be nice to get a message that everything is fine with the onboot.lst?
you could propose that to roberts.

have fun and keep on digging.

[...]Subsequent ondemand menu selection
for a tcz will produce no action.[...]

I have a suggestion:
To remove ondemand menu item when tcz are loaded. It does not make sense to keep them if they have not a function and extensions must be launched from Applications menu.

i apologize for fuss :-[
but i thought how can explain this tabs clearer
Code: [Select]
Included for Backup (.filetool.lst)
Excluded from Backup (.xfiletool.lst)
maybe this will be better

I will answer all here and not individually.

1. OnBoot Unneeded list was missing the "Scan Completed"  message - fixed.
2. Filetool directory selection capability - added and tab labels suggestion accepted.

and finally....
drum roll please

3. Ondemand icons for both scm and tcz - added.

I will test some more tomorrow and if seems OK will post rc3 sooner than later.

Thanks for testing and feedback. I hear you.
