HOW2 D/L 32bit <gpm.tcz>
« on: December 15, 2018, 05:53:05 PM »
I've lost my WiFi [in this Trump-shithole-location].
So the unfamiliar EXPENSIVE dialup non-TC installation makes it difficult
to find & follow my TCforumThread: "tinycore => mulinux => android ?"

AFAIR the next step in my complex task, was to install gpm to the MINIMALIST
32bit - ash-based TCcore. For this I need:
1. The URL of the relevant <gpm.tcz> ; the URL where I D/L-ed <core.iso>
   gives no lead to individual *.tcz
2. The name of the command/script to install the fetched <gpm.tcz>

NB. I must fetch 32bit<gpm.tcz> by a NON-TC system which does not know
the required URL.

Please !

Code: [Select]
$ wget http://repo.tinycorelinux.net/9.x/x86/tcz/gpm.tcz
$ wget http://repo.tinycorelinux.net/9.x/x86/tcz/gpm.tcz.dep
$ wget http://repo.tinycorelinux.net/9.x/x86/tcz/gpm.tcz.md5.txt

..and repeat for the contents of the dep file

Good, thanks.
IMO gpm is the most essential tool; after the Terminal.
The eventual aim of porting Mulinux to android, via the intermediate
 cofirmation that it runs on a minimalist ash/busybox-based TC, seems
 remote. Too many old library conflicts with 1999 Mulinux.
Executables without dependencies are no problem; as these novel-coded
 unix2dos, dos2unix scripts prove:--------
#!/bin/ash
# \r\n -> \n, (C) 1998 by M. Andreoli
# [ use sed+tr ] oh, awk!
                                           
                                           
cat | ( sed "s/%/#perc#/g; s/@/#amp#/g" |\
tr '\012' '%'|\
tr '\015' '@'|\
sed 's/@%/%/g' |\
tr '%' '\012' |\
tr '@' '\015' |\
sed "s/#perc#/%/g; s/#amp#/@/g")
-------------------------------------
