Sorry, bmarkus. You've misread my post. I said  Xorg-big  as in "not small", not  Xorg-bin  as in "binary".
With "-big" I wanted to imply that it's bigger than  Xorg.tcz , because it contains  Xorg.tcz  plus all its deps..

OK, I see. My fault, it was late ninght :)

Unfortunately, I haven't yet been able to upload my custom extension using a reliable internet connection.
Every time I try to upload it using my current internet connection the upload fails, which just eats my bandwidth data plan.

In the meantime, I hope the attached script will help you to create such an extension as I am using.
It extracts the extension (and its deps) specified by the  -i  option from /etc/sysconfig/tcedir/optional into the current working directory and creates an extension with a name specified by the  -o  option.
Code: [Select]
deps-merge.sh -i Xorg.tcz -o Xorg-all-deps.tcz

I found a bug or two while doing some more work on the script.
Shouldn't matter as my example to execute the script worked but just in case.

Great script Misalf!

I used it yesterday on a TinyCore (x86) to merge everything on the onboot.lst.

Doing so makes the boot process faster as well as memory consumption seems to drop (likely due to only one loopback device instead of >100)

Thanks again!!
Let me know if you have any updates to the script.

Any idea how to get the Pi Zero W wifi working?  The latest does not activate the wifi on the Zero W.

ZeroW is not supported until 9.x   (unless you feel like hacking the boot partition)

Is there a way to update a running system remotely within 8.x version range?

Just replace every files in /mnt/mmcblk0p1/ except {config.txt, cmdline.txt, cmdline3.txt} and reboot
