Seems to be a few problems with tce extensions for 6.0 - a shame considering the release itself seems to be so good.

TinyCore isn't my main distro at the moment, I still have lots of things to learn about the way it works before it can take over that spot.
(Hopefully these & any other tce extensions not working properly will get updated soon.)  8)

Just found viewnior is not starting either, neither from wbar or menu.
tc@box:~$ viewnior &
tc@box:~$ viewnior: error while loading shared libraries: libffi.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Report this and other extension related bugs in TCE Bugs section.

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.

I have updated the patch file, it's here:

Thanks! It passed my testing, applied. Look for it in the next release.

Please report these extension issues in the extensions section of the forum.

I'll take a look at gparted.

In the meantime you can load the libffi5 extension to make things work until the maintainers recompile their extensions.

Thanks for reporting.

Hi, i made serval patchs again, please see if they can be used.
1. tce-audit: faster builddb.
2. tce-load: change "wget" to "busybox wget".
3. search.sh: matching dont start only from the first charactor.if the value of seach field is null, display all extensions.
4. apps.fl/apps.cxx: add quotes to args of command.still search if the value of seach field is null and pressed enter.

suggestions about apps:
1. default to list local extensions, and can search locally.
2. right-button menu or double-click to load/download/list?

thanks.

With my G3 connection I sometimes have better results using GNU wget instead of busybox'.

suggestions about apps:
1. default to list local extensions, and can search locally.
2. right-button menu or double-click to load/download/list?

Also might come in handy to download and view *.tcz.info files from within Apps gui.

I've applied parts of the tce-load and apps patches (the unused depi variable, quoting search.sh arguments), thanks. I agree that an empty search should do the same as reloading the list with the "remote" menu item, but it should be done directly, passing nothing to search.sh and parsing tags.db for nothing is pointless extra work.

The tce-audit patch requires more testing than I can do right now, will take a look later. For wget, was there some issue with GNU wget?

If server is unavailable, GNU wget will wait for a long time, and retry 3 times in case of default.

You are right.Just because it is easier to implement that way for me.
In addition, I think the keyword can be matched at the begining, the end, or anywhere in target string, but the original way didn't.
