Hi Team TinyCore!

Have just tried it out some and it seems to work just fine. A very good OS that you should be proud of! Thanks a lot for your effort!

Have fun making TC progress further,
meo

Hello!

The update procedure from 5.4 is just a replace of core.gz and vmlinuz?

Thanks

Correct - you should also use the apps gui to check for extension updates after rebooting in tc-6.0

Just tested to see if the iso is ok and found a problem:

Openbox on the CorePlus.iso is not working - error while loading shred libraries:libcairo.so.2

Anyone having the same issue?

That sounds like the cairo extension is not loaded.

The tree file for openbox does not contain cairo, which suggests one of its recursive deps is missing cairo - I'd guess that pango should have cairo as a dep

Hi again!

Compiled GO from source on Tiny Core v6.0 today and it went just fine and pretty fast even though I did it using an old netbook. Including GO in my backup added more than 30 MB and that was more than I had expected but it works just fine. Thanks again for a good work!  :)

Kind greetings,
meo

Saw some error messages (possibly related to extensions/desktop) when booting from CorePlus 6.0 ISO CD to default FLWM.

Booted from 5.x USB, downloaded online 6.0 core.gz and vmlinuz files, and rebooted. Initial boot to 6.0 was OK. Updated extensions via apps but on rebooting only got command line. Rebooted from CD and mounted the USB to check extensions. Apps showed dependencies for getFlash11, java-installer, wget, and xorg-server were missing. It turned out the dep files for these apps were referencing old 5.x extensions that had been updated in 6.0. After I manually updated the dep files and downloaded the updated extensions (also removing old ones) the boot to the FLWM desktop was successful.

Posting this from 6.0!

cairo added to pango/pango-dev deps and CorePlus iso updated - thanks for reporting this.

Hello,
just running my first test of tc6.0 on an iMac2000 with a frugal installation (copy) that had worked fine with tc5.4

- kmaps detected, correctly built in, works fine
- alsa sound not detected/not working
- script within .X.d/ behaves in a different way
  eg. textfile auto-opened with editor cause systems restart when closed.
- editor colours quoted text, links and remark lines (fine) but has problems with UTF8
- fluff can be installed with Apps but can not be started.
- emelfm2 can be installed but first can not be started either.
- firefox-official can be installed and works fine,
  and after first start of firefox also emelfm works (fluff does not)
- some programs of my frugal installation that work fine are:
  abiword3.0.0, firefox-official, flburn, gimp2, Gnumeric, KeePassX, PuTTY, Viewnior,
- some programs of my frugal installation that do not work:
  fluff, gpa, XChatIRC

Thank you
TinyCore, SliTaz, LinuxMint, Tails, Mac ...

perhaps fltk-1.1.10.tcz is not listed in the dep list of fluff  ?

YAY   (note; you will soon be able to update firefox-official.tcz with firefox-latest  )

Starting with a fresh download of CorePlus, ezremaster will not run due to fltk-1.1.10.tcz missing also.

I make some improvements for local_recursive_scan and remote_recursive_scan in tce-load, by using awk.
It's faster, uses fewer resources, read a dep file only once, and gives some tips on circular dependency.
In tce-audit can also use recursive_scan_dep to replace local_recursive_scan.
This is my patch:
