mc is acting wierd.
This was tested both GUI and booting without GUI.
A minimal install with mc installed.

Disable internal editor.
Press F4 to edit a file.
Vi starts.
Exit vi and we are told that there is another file to edit.
The file name is '+1'.

e2fsprogs - updated to match base tc-5.x
submitqc4 - I'll leave this for now

Copied the rest over - I'll get round to updating coreutils at some point...

Apps states during 'Check for Updates' that the latest release is 4.7.7.

Yes, the check is for the latest stable release.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Chromium running here.  Extensions from 4.X needed:
chromium-browser
dbus
dbus-glib
nss
nspr

--- Edit ---
It browses ok, but locks up if you try to print anything.
To be honest, it is flakey on 4.7.7 too, and frequently crashes, and will not restart without a reboot.

tk.tcz.dep is incorrect.
It contains Xorg-7.6-libs.tcz instead of Xorg-7.6-lib.tcz.

Cups with hplip-2.7 works and prints from command line and the Opera-next that I am typing this on.
4.X packages used:

hplip-2.7
dbus-python-2.7
net-snmp
libssl-0.9.8
ghostscript
libgs
libpaper
ghostscript_common
libcaps
cups-filters
libcap-filters
graphics-libs-1
cups
qpdf
Linux-PAM
bsddb
cracklib
libavahi

There is a dep for acl.tcz that is not resolved from the packages.

I can not recall that ever happening to me, but I use LXDE2 on 4.7.7

ghostscript will only load if I provide a missing depend------libidn.tcz

to all good looking Moderators

When you next build the iso, pls review your *.lst contents----aterm is duplicated  :D
and xbase.lst is showing as an executable.

Also the boot up says tinycorelinux.com rather than dot net

This post has been editted as dumbo as only just realized that grub-legacy does not support isohybrids, but has still posted script somewhere.

if you guys are having any issues with libpng, I just found this while researching web browsers
http://links.twibright.com/download.php
section 1 mentions

Libpng 1.2.18 is buggy and causes Links to crash with "png_do_rgb_to_gray found nongray pixel". PATCH-libpng-1.2.18 inside links-*.tar.* allows fixing this and using 1.2.18.

...

I think I need to have a look at updating hplip with the new python and also cups may need recompiling to work with the new libs created out of the factorised graphics-libs-1

Note that currently there is no Opera-next newer than stable (wrt Linux) and predictions are that it may take a while, related to Opera changing from Presto to Blink as rendering engine.
