Has any user installed TC64:mc?
« on: November 24, 2016, 03:25:28 AM »
...by downloading via a non-TC device ?

The dependency-tree that I manually traced,
starting from:
http://tinycorelinux.net/7.x/x86_64/tcz/mc.tcz.dep
was only these that I fetched:--
glib2.tcz                 libgpg-error.tcz          pcre.tcz
glib2.tcz.md5.txt         libgpg-error.tcz.md5.txt  pcre.tcz.md5.txt
libffi.tcz                libssh2.tcz               slang.tcz
libffi.tcz.md5.txt        libssh2.tcz.md5.txt       slang.tcz.md5.txt
libgcrypt.tcz             mc.tcz
libgcrypt.tcz.md5.txt     mc.tcz.md5.txt
 !! PLUS the missing: libslang.so.2

From the extract of the alphabetically ordered listing:--
libsigc++-dev.tcz
libsigc++.tcz
libSM-dev.tcz
...it's seen to be MISSING from http:<TC extentions list>

IMO the 1st utility to be installed on a minimal system is gpm,
and mc is the 2nd.

? No! My non-volatile file, with *.tcz, *tcz.md5.txt
for each installed to RAM is called: \cde\optional

==> L:\cde\optional <-- contains MANY *.tcz, *tcz.md5.txt

NB!! Some of the dependencies of mc are ALREADY in L:\cde\optional !!
eg. pcre.tcz 311296

TRY: tce-load -i <dirOfExtnsns>/<ExtnToBeLoaded>
-> tce-load -i /mnt/sdb1/cde/optional/mc.tcz == mc.tcz: OK
tc@box:~$ which mc  == /usr/local/bin/mc
->  mc ==
mc: error while loading shared libraries: libslang.so.2:
  cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

libgcrypt.tcz             mc.tcz
libgcrypt.tcz.md5.txt     mc.tcz.md5.txt
As already mentioned, you need to download extension_name.tcz.dep when it exists (glib2.tcz.dep, libssh2.tcz.dep, libgcrypt.tcz.dep, mc.tcz.dep).

Quote
!! PLUS the missing: libslang.so.2
This file is in the slang extension, which would have been loaded via mc.tcz.dep

? No! My non-volatile file, with *.tcz, *tcz.md5.txt
for each installed to RAM is called: \cde\optional
It is only called /cde/optional when booting from cd/dvd/iso. If you copied the iso to hd or a usb stick, you need to rename cde/optional to tce/optional

When installing from a minimalist system, first, even before an editor,
I want gpm; often chroot-ed from another partition.
TC's X-mousing is of course good.

But the next essential tool for me is mc.
I can't make any progress with <TC64> without mc, and a recursive
d/l of the dependencies is not an option, also because I need to
switch to M$ to use the WiFi.
I can't re-boot to M$ for every leaf of the dependency tree,
when the clerical work of listing the leaves not already in the
basic system should already exist. mc is not a rare/exotic app.

Getting WiFi to run on TC64 seems to be near impossible:
 the hardware is:
Realtek RTL8723BE Wireless LAN 802.11n PCI-E NIC
 Driver version : 2023.10.415.2015
 Physical Address: AC-E0-10-DF-8D-91
and I traced that it needs to install:
>] • Wifi problems with rtl8723be in Ubuntu 14.04 3 answers
>] • How do I get a Realtek 8723BE wireless card to work? 6
>]                   answers
...another BIG problem.

Doesn't anybody else use mc for TC64 ?
Here's my lame/skeleton version:---------------------------------------

echo "mymc"

Most everybody else connects to a hard line temporarily while downloading deps   

Or boot windows and install virtualbox also temporarily then install TC to a VDI and download to your hearts content.  Then simply transfer your install to a USB thumdrive,  then later to your main installation.

Or compile the wifi driver,  easy peasy, Lots of options ;P

See http://www.tinycorelinux.net/7.x/x86_64/tcz/mc.tcz.tree

..you need to download eight extensions, including mc

Surprising that no-one else seems to have installed this ESSENTIAL
utility: 3 of the 7 <libraries> are already in the
 minimal ISO installation.

It could be a problem/dangerous that the USBstik is a FAT:FS
so that all files have execute permission.
Especially with mc, where <enter> on any file name does execute.

Let me try one now ?
Yes it sees:
-rwxrwxrwx    1 root     root            42 Dec 25 20:27 mcMd5
as a script, and reports:
$ ./mcMd5
./mcMd5: line 1: 2d1d2ba9b834c7c77903cffe66f814c2: not found

All further actions are now much easier; like reinstalling mc
without RE-reading the proper way to do it; like:
mcReInstall ==
tce-load -i /mnt/sdb1/tce/optional/libgpg-error.tcz
tce-load -i /mnt/sdb1/tce/optional/libgcrypt.tcz
tce-load -i /mnt/sdb1/tce/optional/libssh2.tcz
tce-load -i /mnt/sdb1/tce/optional/slang.tcz
tce-load -i /mnt/sdb1/tce/optional/mc.tcz

What about mc's settings like: Sort order.
I can find where these are installed and add to `Setup`:
cp <USBstik/mcSettings> </mcSettings>

Thanks for mc.
Now installing WiFi and all further tasks will be mush easier.
Imagine when `wily` is installed!! But that needs gcc for x64.

First let's get `gpm` -- for VT-mode usage.

So format the usb stick with a linux filesystem - there has been a windows ext2/3/4 driver available for at least ten years now  ;)

This is my 1st post via links: a prime example of a EUROPEAN designed MINIMALIST utility;
where the essential info is ALWAYS visible at the TOP; not like gmail or this crap-forum.

No! I've come to rely on the TCstik. Imagine how much I've invested?! I must:
make a second 2nd proper partition & carefully migrate the work to it,
and importamtly, find out how did the absurdity of installing linux on a FAT happen.
Why whould I want a "windows ext2/3/4 driver" ? TC64 is getting more capabile every day?
I only need to switch to M$ to do my Gmail. And then I'll need some help with an extra
entry in the booter, to be able to boot a 500GB Toshiba USB-drive which has got some good
old 32-bit work, and which I use the <chroot gpm> for TC, until installed.
I can't understand how several 32bit binaries work?
== Thanks for TC.
PS. this 1st links-sent post will likely have bad line-len formatting. Let's see?
