Finally the final releases of 2.0
« on: June 07, 2009, 12:05:30 PM »
Hi Robert!

I have briefly tested both the final 2.0 of microcore and tinycore and everything looks OK so far. Thanks for a very nice job (goes for the rest of the team also). It will be exciting to explore them further.

Have fun working with MC and TC,

A couple of questions:

Is jwm the default windows manager? An earlier version booted into flwm but it looks like the final release is jwm.

I got a couple of error messages when booting, something about squashfs not found on hda or sda. However the extensions were read OK from the tce directory (on sda1, a USB stick). Is this something I can just ignore?

Yes

Yes, the filesystem on hda is probably windows/dos?

Thanks for the reply.

Yes, the hard drive has Windows 2000 on it and will still boot to that if I don't use TCL on CD. I don't plan to ever use the Windows and at some point may install TCL there.

When shutting down TCL 2, there's a umount message about (I think) not being able to remount read-only /dev/sda1. Is this anything significant?

Hi thane!

That just means that you have a filesystem that usually is not used by linux (like fat32 etc.). The linux OS therefore can't remount it read-only. If you use a linux native filesystem like ext2 then you wouldn't get this message. So it is not significant during the circumstance mentioned above.

Thanks.

I'm booting TCL 2 off a CD and have the mydata and TCE directories on a USB stick. This seemed to work fine in TCL 1.x with no messages, so I wasn't 100% sure that TCL 2 didn't need something additional. It doesn't seem to affect persistency though so no problem.

Hi again thane!

No need to be worried!

Have fun with Tiny Core or if you prefer Micro Core,

Thanks meo.

I'm posting this from TCL 2.0. I've downloaded microcore but haven't tried it yet.

I'd also like to express my thanks to Robert et al.
