- 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

I tested these two, both work for me.

.X.d/editor:
Code: [Select]
editor ~/.xsession &
Closing the editor stayed on the desktop.

Then I wrote an utf-8 file with "hello åäö", it was displayed correctly.

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.

Thanks. I like it, didn't test extensively yet though, just read through. Some points:
- please always use unified diffs (diff -u)
- SUPPRESS is not implemented
- working in a different directory is broken ($PWD /tmp, extension in /tmp/foo, tce-load -i foo/myext.tcz)

In a local load test, it's four times faster than the current solution.

Tried upgrading from 5.4 to 6.0 (coreplus with added extra tcz extensions), by replacing core.gz & vmlinuz, last night, & have hit a problem regarding wifi - it doesn't get loaded on boot up because 6.0 has later kernel number in the tcz names, other tcz's load & display OK.
Otherwise, looks good.  8)

You just need to download and load the wireless-3.16.6-tinycore extension

Thanks, but without wifi, no connection.  ;)

What I have just done, which appears to work OK, is boot from a live CorePlus6.0 with opt & home added to the startup line, then downloaded only, the 2 necessary extensions into my tce directory & rebooted.  8)

- alsa sound not detected/not working
What happens when you load alsa-conf and "speaker-test -c2 -t wav -l1"

Quote
- fluff can be installed with Apps but can not be started.
fluff did not have a dep file (it requires fltk-1.10), fixed now

Quote
- some programs of my frugal installation that do not work:
  gpa, XChatIRC

gpa fails with "calling the crypto engine program failed fatal error in gpgme library", I will pm the maintainer. Are you referring to the xchat extension (which works for me)?

Starting with a fresh download of CorePlus, ezremaster will not run due to fltk-1.1.10.tcz missing also.
deps adjusted and CorePlus iso reposted - thanks

Had problems with/after updating extensions, just got the background, & an X curser, (no menu or wbar).

I have done a new installation of CorePlus6.0.

Trying to use mplayer (on demand), I have no sound, (sound is working OK with xmms)
Trying to run vlc (on demand), nothing happens when I try running it from the menu or wbar.

Edit: mplayer will not go full screen either.

mplayer just gives me the help screen, (even when I give it a .flv movie to play or a .mp3).

vlc gives
tc@box:~$ vlc
vlc: error while loading shared libraries: libiconv.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I don't see libiconv in the apps browser.

Edit: According to the apps browser dependencies, all dependencies are present, yet I can't find libiconv.

We've been trying to get rid of libiconv for sometime now - the iconv functions have been provided by glibc since at least tc-5.x if not before.

$ viewnior: error while loading shared libraries: libffi.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

You can download the libffi5 extension and modify the viewnior dep file locally to suit until the extension maintainer updates things
