Now we reached an important milestone. Xorg-7.7 is added to the repo, all base components required by TC are updated, rebuilt. Just install TC.tcz from the repo

Code: [Select]
tce-load -iw TC
and type

Code: [Select]
to start the graphical environment. If you have a persistent tce directory, TC will start automatically during next boot.

4.x repo converted to 5.x environment and updated to current upstream in many cases, including GTK2. You can use nearly all extensions with 5.0.alpha2, there are no reason to copy them over from 4.x

At the moment I aware only two bugs:

1) USB mass storage partition recognition
2) LTO plugin not found by GCC

Xorg 7.7 and many components built native in 5.0.alpha2, without any issues.

Try it and share your findings with us.
