I noticed that latest busybox in Core 8.1 rc2 has changed some wget options.  "wget -s ..."  is no longer valid but requires the complete option spelled out, eg: wget --spider   
This change broke Firefox_getLatest extension, I'll fix it asap

LZMA for rpm2cpio isn't doing the trick for some reason:

rpm2cpio: no gzip/bzip2/xz magic

"wget: there is no -s option in GNU Wget 1.18, we should be compatible" in Oct 2016.

@andyj: That's because busybox rpm2cpio doesn't pass the filename onwards and has to guess from the magic bytes, and LZMA has no magic bytes - it cannot be detected without external help. Please open a busybox bug, attach such a lzma rpm there.

The bug I filed with busybox about the tar exclude option not working right is still unassigned after a year and a half. But first, when I look at the busybox config file from here http://tinycorelinux.net/8.x/x86_64/release/src/busybox/busybox-1.27.1_config_nosuid LZMA doesn't look configured to me.

The config file date stamp shows it's the rc1 file. I confirmed it won't work by looking at the source; tell them rpm2cpio can't handle lzma rpms at all and upload a sample.

From now on can we call it buggybox? I'm sure when I file another bug it will get the same tireless attention as the last one.

Well, they're understaffed like many projects. Patches are certainly welcome, almost all of mine were applied. RPM is also something not many people use, they might not even know lzma rpms exist.

I'd neglected to upload the latest config - done now.

I guess that "CONFIG_FEATURE_SEAMLESS_LZMA=y" means that it is meant to work in rpm2cpio, etc?

If I thought I was any good at C I might give it a try myself, but it's not a language I use often enough to claim proficiency at this sort of level. At this point I use so many I don't use any one enough to code without having to look up commands and functions all the time.

Well, they're understaffed like many projects. Patches are certainly welcome, almost all of mine were applied.

It sounds like telling them isn't all that helpful then. Maybe someone who has had a lot of their patches applied would be a better person to work with them.  ;)

Maybe making xarchiver for 64-bit match (i.e. have) rpm2cpio like 32-bit would be a more expedient solution, assuming it is built with LZMA support. Remember this came up way back when: http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,21251.msg132834.html#msg132834

busybox have come up with a patch series for the rpm2cpio lzma bug, which seems to fix the problem.

@andyj - if you could post your network patch, it can be added to rc3 along with the rpm2cpio fix.
