I allege that on reboot, "IT" whatever it is, remembers a screen artifact or gremlin
so that before your final flwm_topside/fltk desktop appears
---you see your previous aterm, open with (according to my eyesight), the correct number of prompt lines down.

Completely normal, linux does not zero out VRAM, so when displaying uninitialized memory, the old contents may be seen.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

I had been scratching my head over that one too and was thinking a result of previously stored data in the video card buffers, it's only noticeable during a warm boot.   Thanks curaga for solving that puzzle  8)

it appears that altho they run for you, you do not wish to accept them.

No, I was saying that they do not run for me unless I symlink /usr/local/lib/libxul.so -> /tmp/tcloop/firefox/usr/local/firefox/libxul.so - i.e. they do not run on my tc-5.x setup

First time ever, my old macbook boots with wireless connectivity using TC-5.0 + wl driver and usual bmca,ssb,b43 Blacklisted boot codes.  This wireless setup never worked with tc-4.x and had all but given up on it when I noticed lspci indicated the device was using the wl driver.  Out of curiosity I removed my usb wireless adapter and rebooted with wireless support, imagine

Only weird thing, Ethernet device is listed as eth0 whilst built-in broadcom wireless adapter is listed as eth1,  odd but it works great  ;D

All wifi devices using the wl driver get called eth1 - debian has a patch somewhere to change this to wlan0...

Ah ha!    a patch sounds good,   I vaguely remember this coming up before, just couldn't remember where or which device it was related to

..could you do me a favour and reveal your onboot list, your WM/DE and where relevant,
if you are running this natively or in a virtual machine.

Code: [Select]
$ cat onboot.lst
Xprogs.tcz
wbar.tcz
aterm.tcz
flwm.tcz
Xorg-7.7.tcz

running on a real machine

aterm.....highlight copy via ctrl+c
open editor....ctrl + v fails to paste
open second aterm....ctrl +v fails to paste
open third aterm.... press L+R buttons down....fails to paste
Using Xvesa and flwm - highlight and 3rd mouse button copies and pastes

I didn't think <ctrl-c> and <ctrl-v> were meant to work with aterm...

I am suggesting we may still have a missing dependency for gtk2?
apps/maintenance confirms I am up-to-date

Using Xvesa:
Code: [Select]
$ tce-load -i gtk2
liblzma.tcz: OK
libxml2.tcz: OK
libffi.tcz: OK
glib2.tcz: OK
shared-mime-info.tcz: OK
libtiff.tcz: OK
gdk-pixbuf2.tcz: OK
libxkbfile.tcz: OK
libpciaccess.tcz: OK
libdmx.tcz: OK
libXxf86vm.tcz: OK

I double-checked again - with either Xorg-7.7 or Xvesa onboot, gtk2 loads without errors.

pango dep file http://www.tinycorelinux.net/5.x/x86/tcz/pango.tcz.dep reads:
Code: [Select]
harfbuzz.tcz
Xorg-7.7-lib.tcz

hi gordonselfish

H'mmmm,  maybe I'm missed something but whats up with the paths to tcedir/optional  ?  those are symlinks

Am just wondering if the minimize button jumped out yet ??  (it's on the left side)


You know, for a while there I was experiencing weird things during the transition to the new dep list/files .  I ended up emptying the contents of the optional directory and downloading fresh all the tcz's, since then I've never looked back.  I wonder if that might help?


firefox errors when launched from the command line appear to be a common occurrence it seams, check this (same bug right)?
https: //bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=672671


Ok my pango was last modified  Friday, July 12th  did i win the loto ?
I guess i need to update huh?

hope that helps

hover mouse in editor and
rotate thumb wheel downwards

Pressing the rotating wheel (as opposed to rotating it) usually acts as the third (middle) mouse button in terms of pasting in linux, but a simultaneous left/right click should also act as the middle mouse button and doesn't seem to work with aterm in tc-5.x

several gnome-3/gtk3 extensions posted - evince, gedit, file-roller, gnome-calculator, gnome-terminal, nautilus, rhythmbox - in case anybody is interested to test.

Not all functionality was compiled in, but the idea was to use dconf (instead of gconf) and libsecret (instead of gnome-keyring) for gtk3 (as opposed to gtk2) apps
