how can i create provides.db or updating provides.db
« on: December 28, 2017, 09:41:44 PM »
Hey, i have cloned the tinycore8.x repo to an local home server, and id like to put my own created extension to the local repo. it seems tce-ab uses the provides.db file for finding extensions. If i upload my created extension to the repo, my extension is missing inside the provides.db file and tce-ab is not able to find the extension also .. so how can i easily announce the new added extension to the repo to the provides.db or how can i create a fresh provides.db with the new uploaded extension inclusive ?

Thanks
1 + 2 = 6  cause  10 - 6 = 78 ;-) lol

It's the info.lst you want to update for the normal search, provides.db is only for the "provides" file search. It's a simple file listing.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Just for completeness of the original question. (cli not GUI)

$tce-audit builddb

This is required before deleting an extension ie. $tce-audit delete xxxx.tcz
