Team Tiny Core is proud to announce the release of Core v6.2:

Changelog for 6.2:

* tc-config: nfs4 mount changes from gerald_clark
* tce-load: 2% speedup from aswjh
* tce-size: apply patch from Greg Erskine for no-deps files
* tce-remove, rc.shutdown: update copy2fs name
* tce-ab: convert to a symlink
* tce-load: awk recursion changes changed to a subshell, so exit status needs to be passed

Thanks to team tiny core :)

@curaga
about patch4,5:
1.values of FROMWHERE can be various, and need to be passed, so output of recursive_scan should be with path.
("-i path1/ext1  path2/ext2" is supported by tce-load in the original)
2."$D" instead of "cd $FROMWHERE", it does avoid to frequently switch between directories.

That is certainly not intentional, even if it may work in the current one.

tce-audit fetchmissing is not working.
I updated the vlc extension.
I updated deps.
I rebuilt the database
deps clearly show x264.tcz but fetchmissing does not fetch the missing x264.tce.
I had to manually tce-load -w x254.

tce-load patch, please see if it is useful.

Sorry for the bug.
Performance may be better if like this:
{print $1 >> tce_lst; recursive_scan(...
END {
   close(tce_lst)

I'll take a look at the patch later, busy week for now. On that tce-audit change, do you measure much difference?

I'll need a bit more context, how many extensions do you have?

I just "Download + Load" mtpaint, which was posted a few minutes ago for TC6.x x86, on Tiny Core 6.2 with Openbox via Apps GUI.
Like it was reported in the 6.2RC thread, WBar disappears after loading some extensions.

Also there is no Openbox menu entry created for mtpaint. Instead this file is left in /tmp.
/tmp/menu.tmp
Code: [Select]
  <item label="mtpaint" icon="/usr/local/share/pixmaps/mtpaint.png"> <action name="Execute"> <command>mtpaint</command> </action> </item>

Hmm - it works fine for me - both icon and menu item - with flwm "classic".

Maybe you could try with flwm?

Retried with Openbox. Seems to be consistent for me.
Tried with FLWM. WBar disappears as well but menu item is created correctly.

Well, I hacked the Openbox scripts to include icons in the menu. So the menu part could be my fault.

I'm using a 1.6GHz netbook. Kinda slow maybe?

EDIT:
Choosing "Reconfigure Openbox" from the openbox menu makes the menu item for mtpaint appear.

Hi Misalf
I just ran across this myself with an extension I'm working on under TC4. The reason was that wbar could not find the icon file
listed by the .desktop file.
