Sorry - I misunderstood...

Could you confirm the *iso file name you downloaded and the contents of the cde folder on the cd you burnt from it please?

Another obvious thing is that there is no minimize button ( - ) in neither of the extensions and the only web browser with a gui I could make work (using now) is Opera.

I find the minimize button has been relocated to the top left of each window (to the left of the title)

And have grown fond of chromium-browser with "Lightning-newtab" google extension in tc-5.0

It looks to me like chromium-browser is missing a dep on Xorg-7.7-lib

Could you try with this loaded and see if things work?

Hi again Juanito!

I seems you were right. Chromium works now. Just posting this from it.  ;)

Thanks for your good work with TC,
meo

Why the switch from eglibc to glibc?

Maybe these two suggestions about unicode are weird, but I still want to put forward. First is the modification of /etc/profile. Maybe the variable G_FILENAME_ENCODING=UTF-8 will be better. It doesn't affect western file names and can resolve the problems of displaying east Asian file names. The other suggestion is updating fltk to 1.3.x to support unicode, and re-build flwm_topside and Xprogs. At present, the display of ControlPanel will be a mess after I loaded base-locale and set LANG=zh_CN.utf8.

When I use the xf86-video-vmware driver in Xorg 7.7 I don't see a mouse cursor. There is still a mouse, because I can roll over the wbar and select windows, but no cursor. I didn't see this problem with 7.6 in TC4, or with the xvesa driver in 7.7. It doesn't seem to make a difference if I use the vmmouse input driver or not. Any ideas?

Sorry, but I've never used vmware anything so I can't help there...

Apparently for now DRI for VMware on TC5 isn't really optional, which means that I have to load even more extensions that I normally wouldn't bother with. I did finally manage to get open-vm-tools working again. But I have to ask, why are so many of the X libraries unbundled? Can they really be used for something other than X, and don't they all get loaded by default anyway when the Xorg extension gets loaded? The only application that I have loaded is open-vm-tools and that's mounted on loop 88. Doesn't that seem like a lot, especially when so many of the extensions are under 40kb?

Yes, it'd be more efficient to have them together, but the other end is maintenance: it's much easier to update one lib if it's in its own extension.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Now that Linux 3.10 has LTS status, any chance of upgrading while we're still in the alpha stage?
