So is your wireless working? With CorePlus, selecting TAB will allow additional boot codes thus entry of the backlist boot codes.

CorePlus wired networking works fine in Qemu too.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

I wasn't able to download Opera the other day (Tiny Core installed to USB, wired connection) -- maybe a mirror issue? I'll try again.

edit: Still couldn't download Opera; was able to download mirrors.tcz. However trying to select various mirrors failed.

edit: Was able to select mirrors after I put mirrors.tcz in onboot list (which is what I specified in the download but apparently didn't happen).

edit: Ok, here I am on CorePlus TC 5 (booting from CD) posting from Opera 9. Tiny Core installed to USB stick boots OK but has download issues. So maybe there's a problem with tc-install, or my USB install of Tiny Core has a glitch?

edit: Re-installed Tiny Core on USB stick from CorePlus CD -- same issues.

Note that I no longer have an x86 machine with wireless and no x86 machine that can boot from usb drive.
Today, I visited a friend who does. The only issue that I can see is that tc-install does not provide an xterm.
Since aterm was removed from the base, it is imperative that an xterm be available.

The failure that is being reported is caused by the fact that an xterm (aterm) is used by the GUI when downloading apps.
It is used as the visual progress meter. Without such apps gui fails immediately.

The simple work around is to exit from X desktop to prompt then:

$ tce-load -iw aterm.tcz

After OK then type

$ startx

System functions as expected including wireless, wired, and 915 resolution all tested OK.

xterm (aterm) was the only issue that I could find.

This is easily fixed for the next rc.

Confirmed that roberts' fix works for apps! Loaded aterm.tcz as he recommended and after that was able to download Opera 9 via apps, which I'm now posting from.

Thank you roberts!

Hello!

Installing CorePlus with openbox gave me a "window manager less" desktop after reboot.

It requests libXinerama.so.1 if I try to open it from terminal (and yes, had to install aterm manualy). Installed it then it required libXcursor.so.1... Then it required libXft... and then it worked!

As it works while in the liveCD, maybe the problem is that not all of the required extensions where copied during the install?

Hi

in the first post of this RC series the link is to
http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/tinycorelinux/5.x/x86/release_candidates

I thought we were going to use tinycorelinux.net domain?

thanks for reading

I've noticed that Xorg-7.7-dev doesn't have a dependency on Xorg-7.7-lib, either directly or through Xorg-7.7. Is this intentional?

Reported missing dependencies via install from CorePlus are being addressed by updates to tc-install.tcz.
Thanks for testing and reporting.

In my case I have to explicitly load Xorg-7.7-lib along with Xorg-7.7-dev because it doesn't load the base extension like every other dev extension I've used. I'm saying that I think Xorg-7.7-lib (or Xorg-7.7.tcz) should be in Xorg-7.7-dev.tcz.dep.

No, but my hardware will not work with Xvesa so it wasn't picked up...

I found it while working on a script to build open-vm-tools. libXinerma and libXtst weren't loaded by anything Xorg-7.7-dev depends on.

I saw this too. The tce.installed script it should also make sure that /var/lib/asound is in /opt/.filelist to preserve settings.
