Hi: Please post when you think we can start testing the GUI. While I was playing with the command line I discovered the following:
1. was not able to make files in /opt persistant over boot.
2. data in /home/tc could only be saved by using the:
$ filetool.sh -b
command
3. could not make password change permanent.

t(w)o be(ers) or not t(w)o be(ers) that is the question

I put " filetool.sh -b" into /opt/shutdown.sh and expected to have the backup done automatically. But it did not. Changes inside the  file  disappeared after reboot.

Try to add filetool.sh with full path.

Is /opt/shutdown.sh file in the /opt/.filetool.lst ??

And did you start filetool.sh -bv, to include your change ??

yes I put the command: " filetool.sh -b"  into the shutdown configuration file named: /opt/shutdown.sh because I wanted to have this file to execute that command every time I shut down. I was able to do it manually from the cli,
I will try to give the full path, but I have to find the path first. I will post back.
Thanx for your help

congratulations! Thank you guys I love your work. Today I was able to install the mini GUI, Xorg.tcz is now in the repo and tce-load -iw TC.tcz did the job. After installing TC.tcz I needed to do xsetup. An immediate startx brought the error message "failed in waitforx"
On the RASPI 3 this piCore is lightning fast. I discovered that a lot of extensions are still missing.
Questions:
1. Is there a tutorial on how to bring over extensions from piCore 7.2 and install them on piCore 8.0 ?
is it possible to modify the app browser from the gui to access the previous repo?

2. I discovered that the screen resolution changed from the first "startx" to the second boot with backup.
How can I get back to the previous resolution. I am using  a small 7" HDMI monitor and I would prefer to stay with the lower resolution.

1) Usage of 7.2 extensions specially depending on X and GTK not adviced, there were many changes in the environment. However you can try it on your own risk.

2) Change resolution config.txt

hi bmarkus: I tried to install dillo3.tcz ftom the 7.x repo in piCore8.0
I downloaded the dillo3.tcz plus the dillo3.tcz.dep into /tce/optional, then I did a
$ tce-load -i dillo3.tcz
it did not install and came back with an error message:
$ ipv6-4..4.20-piCore_v7+.tcz not found

the dependency file of dillo3.tcz lists besides fltk-1.3.tcz and openssl.tcz an ipv6-Kernel.tcz

Is there an easy way to fix that and get dillo running so I can test?

I also tried to bring the tigervnc-viewer over from the piCore7 repo. Install worked without an error message, but
when I try to start it I am getting the following error message:
tc@box:/usr/local/bin$ vncviewer
vncviewer: error while loading shared libraries: libXinerama.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Is there an easy fix too?

The mpg123 in the 8.0 repo was built with default -C, means with the command line interface and can't be put in background than. The older version in 7.0 repo works well.

The alsa-utils.tcz.dep have missing alsa.tcz.

Other point found. The extraction of the 8.0 extensions at boot takes much longer time than the 7.0 ones which works well too.
