as testers conform the tc-4.x extensions work, they can be copied over to the tc-5.x repo

we ask that only experienced users test

and http://repo.tinycorelinux.net/5.x/x86/tcz/

good to know that you don't need to be an expert to do that part of the testing.
I think anyone can run the executable in a terminal to see what is missing or borking or have I misunderstood (again)?

SpaceFM works but will need a extra dependency of
raid-dm-3.8.10-tinycore.tcz

OFFTOPIC I have submitted firefox v 21 and it loads without any error
On the old alpha thread mention was made of libpng and animation.

I am assuming you mean animated gif?
if so, firefox 21 runs such test site was
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Rotating_earth_%28large%29.gif

More tests later.

Is it appropriate to talk about grub menu using core and rootfs here?

inxi loads ok

inxi -F

What do you use for your grub menu lines, if you use it?

Looking at google--- slitaz uses 4 rootfs...and based on that info initrd line might read
EDIT
initrd /boot/grub/core.gz /boot/grub/rootfs.gz

I just tried the reverse line to above and got a kernel message
"modprobe chdir (3.8.10-tinycore) No such file or directory

Can your remember having in rootfs that I could easily verify has loaded?

I await your advice Sir

EDIT 2
leafpad runs fine for me

Juanito
Forgive any rudeness, but for the alpha repo, are you in charge of it?
That is, do you have the power to edit across 4.x repo dep files to fix them up for 5.x?
I am thinking of my precious SpaceFm

I have submitted firefox and seamonkey. I have a forum post in the news area asking for feedback on minefield.
I have not had a chance to look at icecat or Shiretoko but am aware of them. I looked at chromium-browser but AFAIK I would need to download 2G of source which I baulk at ATM.

Thanks for the heads up on the mc icon.

EDIT
initrd /boot/grub/core.gz /boot/grub/rootfs.gz

core.gz = rootfs.gz + modules.gz
core64.gz = rootfs.gz + modules64.gz

so, using syslinux to boot:
Code: [Select]
label rootfs
kernel /boot/vmlinuz
initrd /boot/rootfs.gz,/boot/modules.gz
append quiet yada-yada

or grub2:
Code: [Select]
menuentry "rootfs64" {
  linux /boot/vmlinuz64 quiet yada-yada
  initrd /boot/rootfs.gz /boot/modules64.gz
}

or, if your boot loader does not support multiple initrd, you can use core.gz or make your own with:
Code: [Select]
$ cat rootfs.gz modules.gz > core.gz

1) caps LED works when pressed but
numlock LED fails to light

Do you need a dmeg or can you verify on your snazzy 64 bit computer?

2) Silly me, I was trying to append rootfs when it was already included!

since this is a bunch of deps, could you confirm that everything works in spacefm in tc-5.x?

Re wget on TC-5.x

Have tested wget from the 4.x repo using an http request to a 100MB file on a data center on the other side of the galaxy;  success, downloaded file in just a few seconds.  ftp checks good also.

 speedtest.dallas.linode.com/speedtest/100MB-dallas.bin

https://www.linode.com/speedtest/

hope posting the link to a reliable speedtest is ok


looks like I was wrong to be skeptical on this app

Code: [Select]
tce-load -i raid-dm-3.8.10-tinycore.tcz SpaceFM

/etc/sysconfig/tcedir/optional/raid-dm-3.8.10-tinycore.tcz: OK
touch: /usr/local/tce.installed/libattr: Permission denied

..not sure why you would get that error message when neither raid-dm-3.8.10-tinycore nor libattr have a start-up script...
