I copy/pasted an old list from a dcore-stretch install, changed the "-tinycore" lines to "-tinycore64", imported it, and everything worked.

The only oddity was that when I did the import, a few packages prompted me to make choices that I didn't have to do the last time I imported them on the x86 version (which was a couple months ago).

I don't know enough about packaging to know if these prompts were an importing issue, a quirk with packaging, meta-packages, etc., but I thought I'd list them in case it was helpful.

The package "xserver-xorg-legacy_1.19.2-1+deb9u1_amd64.deb" made me choose between "deb9u2" versions for the different architectures.

The package "xserver-common_1.19.2-1+deb9u1_all.deb" made me choose between deb7u7, deb8u2, and deb9u2 versions.

The package "xserver-xorg-core_1.19.2-1+deb9u1_amd64.deb" made me choose from a list of the 3 different debian versions and all of the different architectures for each version (it says there are 65 choices).


I apologize if this is noise, but in the end everything did import correctly and worked. Good job and thanks for working on a 64 bit release!  :D

Hi zerophnx.  Are you using a mirror for the Tinycore repo?  What you are seeing usually is probably the result of a stale debinx file that has been updated on the Debian server but not yet synced to the Tinycore mirror being used.  Our server runs the script to sync the debinx data every hour, so sce-import using the main Tinycore mirror should not have that selection list come up unless it is an error in Debian's files.

But glad to hear that otherwise things are working for you.

I didn't touch the repo settings, so it's whatever the default was. 

Basically, I booted in, copied the list from the other drive, and ran the import (it was mate-desktop and a handful of partitioning, rescue, and assorted useful programs).

Ok, hopefully it was a one time thing.  There is an hour window at any time that Debian can make changes to their Packages files before it is reflected in the debinx data on our server.  If it happens again, let me know.  Thanks for testing.

Now updating gdk pixbuf loaders if the script exists in the system on each 'sce-load' loading of an SCE.  The same with gtk2 and gtk3 immodules.

dCore-stretch64 has been updated to support both existing and current versions of busybox.  Busybox wget has dropped the '-s' option, but '--spider' is supported by all versions.

dCore-stretch64 has been updated to fix a bug in recognizing entries in /opt/debmirror and /opt/securitymirror.  Those are the two files to specify Debian/Ubuntu repos.  /opt/tcemirror is the location for Tinycore mirrors.

Sce-update and sce-ppa-add are now available as extensions.  To install them use the below commands:

sce-import sce-update

sce-import sce-ppa-add



Files removed from base:

usr/bin/sce-update

New release candidate is uploaded.  Now if a package is not available in the correct architecture for a dCore port in an extra repo, sce-import will exit with an error message before any action is taken to create the SCE.  For example, if an extra repo only offers 64 bit packages and one is using an x86 dCore.

dCore-stretch has been updated with updates to the base Debian related binaries and libraries as well as dCorePlus-stretch now has by default the boot code net.ifnames=0 added so wireless devices are recognized as the wlan0, wlan1, etc, instead of the Predictable Network Interface Names that is now the default in udev after version 197.
