Can I remove tinycore gui elements from my microcore system ?
« on: January 10, 2017, 08:51:26 PM »
Hi all

I've downloaded a few apps with a tinycore system running in a virtual box, and once I had it all setup the way I wanted, I copied the tce folder to a actual computer and booted with a microcore boot cd.

I've continued setting up the server as needed, and noticed a bunch of libX11 warnings at boot up

I've had a look at my tce/optional and it's got a lot of new stuff in there to do with tinycore's gui

Is there any easy way to get rid of the tinycore gui tcz elements and leave everything else ? used tinycore 5.4.

Is your question:

How do I remove extensions from a console prompt?

or

How do I decide which extensions containing X libs I can remove?

Can you give an example of one of the "bunch of libX11 warnings at boot up"?

I've attached an image of the error messages as they appear boot up.
Most error's end in skipping, no such directory.

It looks like the microcore boot cd is trying to load tinycore gui extensions.

I've noticed a lot of extra extensions in my tce/optional folder that I believe came in from when I stupidly setup this up in tinycore.
I could just start again, but I've done a lot of server customization to conf files since booting from microcore.

If tinycore related gui extensions are sitting in the tce/optional folder, are they booted by default without being referenced in the onboot.lst file ?

Any advice welcome.
Live long and prosper.

Hi remus
Just a guess on my part, but I think  fontconfig  may be responsible for those messages.

Those are messages from the fontconfig startup script and can be ignored.

loading the python extension causes several libX* extensions to be loaded (recursive dependency on tk)

No need to start again, just use tce-audit to remove the extensions you don't need - for example the *-dev extensions.

No, only extensions and their recursive dependencies are loaded from onboot.lst
