Just tried to install Xorg-7.7-3d.tcz and could not get Xorg to load required modules.  Turns out ....when I compared to an earlier version where Xorg-3d was working correctly, graphics-KERNEL-tinycore.tcz was not being loaded.  When I manually added graphics-4.8.17.tcz to onboot.lst, everything worked fine.  I think in earlier versions, the graphics-KERNEL-tinycore.tcz extension was listed in the Xorg-3d dep file and got downloaded and installed automatically.  Now it seems you have to know it has to be added independantly.  Was this an intentional change?

Yes, it was an intentional change - for the last two or three tc versions/kernel versions, loading the graphics-KERNEL extension fills dmesg with a whole bunch of error messages on my hardware..

...so I only load it when really needed.

Would it be better to keep the dep, but blacklist the module on your system?
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

The extension xf86-video-intel.tcz includes graphics-KERNEL-tinycore.tcz as a dependency.  I use xf86-video-ati.tcz, but graphics-KERNEL-tinycore.tcz is not listed as a dependency, nor is it as far as I can see, listed as a dependence of the other xf86-video-*.tcz's.
(In some earlier versions I believe graphics-KERNEL-tinycore.tcz was listed as a dependency for xf86-video-ati.tcz.)

 In any case, I think a note in either Xorg-7.7.tcz, Xorg-7-7-3d.tcz, or in the individual xf86-video-*.tcz's , INFO file regarding the possible need to load graphics-KERNEL-tinycore.tcz, would be most helpful.

/8.x/armv7/releases/RPi/src/kernel/ seems to contain modules for 4.4, not for 4.8 (or even 4.9?)

or am I missing something ?

This is the thread for tc-8.x x86 and x86_64, not piCore...

Broken scp in dropbear extension.
It requires links for scp and dbclient in /usr/bin to work properly.

how did you generate the error and what was the error message?

[note that this thread is for tc-8.x x86/x86_64 base issues, dropbear is not part of the base]

Oh, sorry for that...
To generate the error just try to copy something from different host to tinycore:
Code: (bash) newbielink:# [nonactive]
scp test_file tc@172.16.1.69:/tmp
sh: scp: not found
lost connection
And another one, while coping from tinycore to host:
Code: (bash) newbielink:# [nonactive]
tc@box:~$ scp /tmp/test_file user@host:/tmp
/usr/bin/dbclient: No such file or directory
lost connection
tc@box:~$
