Problems with file system in dcore
« on: January 21, 2018, 04:12:55 PM »
Been using the xenial release of dcore.

Been having trouble getting to a directory in a partition on my hard drive.

Using puppy linux, no problem going in the directory.

I also have had a directory disappear in /home/tc/icewm/themes/

I guess dcore is not ready for prime time.

That's not much to go on ......

I think puppy runs as root, suggesting as user  tc  you don't have permission to access the directory in question.

I could see that happening with a non-persistent home directory. Create a directory, don't do a backup, reboot, and the
directory is gone.

I think it's a little premature to come to that conclusion.

Thanks Rich, your answer to the mentioned issues is complete and needs no addition to it.

But, if I may add..

Lassar - What you are seeing is not dCore specific but is the Tinycore way and is so by design.  I suggest getting familiar with Tinycore documentation before testing and troubleshooting.  Thank you.

Copied the icewm directory and files over to dcore home/tc.

On the vista directory that disappeared.

It disappeared during the same session that  I had copied the icewm directory and files over.

I looked in the icewm/themes directory, and the vista directory has disappeared.

I quickly copied the opt , and home directoy to ext4 partition on my hard drive.

Funny thing using puppy linux, I checked the that icewm directory, that I had copied
over, and the vista directory was in there.

Yes the problem was user ownership and permissions.

Hi Lassar
Glad to hear you got it sorted out. Incorrect ownership and permissions can cause confusion. I started learning Linux using
Debian. If I tried executing a command I didn't have permission to run, it would return a  command not found  message.
Drove me a little crazy until I figured out what was going on.

That is why I preferred xenialpup64.

But I am trying to make the lightest kodi system there is, and dcore seems like it might do the job.
