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.

Uploaded a new RC, replacing /usr/bin/locale with a proper 64 bit version.

Changed files:
