thanks for the new RC. Started CorePlus and loaded firefox on boot. W-Bar disappeared after download and install. Was able to recover it by changing the icon size in control panel. (tcWbarConf)
Installed FF version 21. How to get the latest version.
How to use the firefox-latest.tcz ?
t(w)o be(ers) or not t(w)o be(ers) that is the question

Hi guys!

Gave this rc a run for it's money today. Compiling the go language and wrapping together firefox in my own wild mothertung (Swedish) by means of a hacked old script. Seems to work very good! Thanks for all your effort, TEAM TINY CORE!  :)

Regards,
meo

PS As alway I forget to mention which TC I'm using. It's the 32 bit X version. DS

Features and improvements for tce-load, please see if they are useful:
1.mix load.While loading extensions outside "optional", look for dependencies in "optional" too.
2.scan dep files at centralized location. Boot time will decrease 3 seconds(tinycore,coreplus).
3.better memory usage and performance.

Thanks - for development purposes, I'd rather it didn't do that.

Thanks, I've applied the performance patch 3 (with some necessary parts from earlier ones). However, I agree with Juanito, the mixed dir behavior is not desired.

Regarding patch 2, the idea in general is good - save on forks by looping inside tce-load. I see one possible issue with the current form, if (in an interactive shell, not on boot) the user has a spurious TCEDIR env var, that would cause tce-load to fail completely where it before wouldn't.

This can be worked around by only accepting TCEDIR when the booting flag is given, or perhaps by adding a new getopt option for the dir. I also think the other reorganization and error changes in the patch are not needed, or if perf impact can be shown for the reorganization, it should be a separate patch.

I've recently experienced an issue with wbar disappearing on closing of the latest brasero extension, as has been reported earlier
 On restart of wbar from the terminal there was an error message relating to libpng  something to the tune of should set color type to RGB,   you would think libpng would be calling for RGB alpha...  but I'm just guessing
(I'll get the exact message if it reoccurs )

currently using
tc-6.2rc1

It seems not very useful :)

or perhaps by adding a new getopt option for the dir.

That's good.

@aswjh

Applied, thanks!

@coreplayer2

That warning is not relevant, the new libpng prints it for almost every png file. Try running wbar in one terminal to see why it would exit upon brasero exit.

Hi Tiny Core Team!

I just want to express my appreciation for your work. Thanks for TC OS that makes my c:a 8 year old netbook function like a "lean and mean 'INFORMATION'(e.g. HACKING; OBS HACKING NOT CRACKING)] MACHINE"!!!  :)  I've seen the development from the dawn of DSL to the high performance peak of TC today. I've learned a lot thanks to the assistance of the community and you guys. Thanks a lot!!!

Kind Regards,
meo

PS Edited running Rasbpian; I'm a 'distro junkie' so I've tried like half a dozen new distros the last 24 hours. DS
