libncurses  maybe missing.

It's in the x86 version:
http://www.tinycorelinux.net/5.x/x86/tcz/

but it appears to be missing from the arm port:
http://www.tinycorelinux.net/5.x/armv6/tcz/


Code: [Select]
tce-load -wi libncurses.tcz
Downloading: libncurses.tcz
Connecting to repo.tinycorelinux.net (89.22.99.37:80)
wget: server returned error: HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found
md5sum: libncurses.tcz.md5.txt: No such file or directory
Error on libncurses.tcz

There are no libncurses.tcz in the 5.x x86 repo. Same for armv6. Install ncurses.tcz

Use 'Provides' function of Apps or tce to find which tcz package provides a specific file.

Thanks but perhaps you can hold my hand here as I have no experience.

Output from nano below

Code: [Select]
tc@piCorePlayer:~$ nano
nano: error while loading shared libraries: libncursesw.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
tc@piCorePlayer:~$

Could you give me a script that I need to paste into terminal.

Many thanks
Tony

assuming you're using tc-5.x x86, you need to load the ncursesw extension.

You can find which extension contains a certain file by using the "provides" function of the apps gui

Edit: please confirm which version of nano you're using so the dep file can be modified.

Hi Bemused
Using the  Apps  utility, click on the button labeled  Search  and change the drop down to  Provides. Then enter the file you are looking
for in the field just to the right.
In this case you need  ncursesw.tcz  though I don't see it listed in the Arm link you posted.

I searched for ncursesw.tcz, not found so tried ncurses.tcz, In desperation I hit option 1 through 4 from within the tce interface.

Code: [Select]
tce - Tiny Core Extension browser

1. ncurses-dev.tcz
2. ncurses-doc.tcz
3. ncurses.tcz
4. ncurses-utils.tcz

Enter selection ( 1 - 4 ) or (q)uit:

Thanks, but still unsure of things, piCore 6.0beta1 is the OS not piCoreplayer which is the image I made on the flash card?

You do not need ncursesw.tcz only ncurses.tcz Also normally you do not need to install ncurses manually as it is a dependency of other apps and system takes care of it.

OK so I believe I have ncurses

Code: [Select]
tc@piCorePlayer:~$ tce-load -wi ncurses.tcz
ncurses is already installed!
tc@piCorePlayer:~$

But

Code: [Select]
tc@piCorePlayer:~$ nano
nano: error while loading shared libraries: libncursesw.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
tc@piCorePlayer:~$

nano works fine here as expected.

Start with a clean install of piCore-6.0beta1
