Core v11.0beta1
« on: January 14, 2020, 04:15:48 AM »
Team Tiny Core is pleased to announce that Tiny Core 11.0 Beta1 is available for public testing:

http://repo.tinycorelinux.net/11.x/x86/release_candidates/
http://repo.tinycorelinux.net/11.x/x86_64/release_candidates/

This is an beta level cut. If you decide to help test, then please test carefully. We don't want anyone to lose data.

Extensions are in the process of being copied over from the 10.x repo.

We appreciate testing and feedback.

If you use distribution files note that you need a new vmlinuz and core.gz (or rootfs.gz + modules.gz)

Changelog for 11.0 beta1:
* kernel updated to 5.4.3
* glibc updated to 2.30
* gcc updated to 9.2.0
* e2fsprogs base libs/apps updated to 1.45.4
* util-linux base libs/apps updated to 2.34
* busybox updated to 1.31.1
* .ashrc removed #alias d='dmenu_run &'

Note:

* we discovered a bug on the 32-bit version, in Intel IOMMU, preventing boot. If you have a high-end Intel system with IOMMU and VT-D, you may need intel_iommu=off to boot the 32-bit version
* the nouveau kernel module is now enabled, but it is in a separate extension and not in graphics-KERNEL. The nvidia binary driver is still recommended.
* Intel compute sticks, etc should now detect their embedded mmc flash
* for 64 bit version only: task_xacct and ipmi are enabled
* we will move extensions from linking to openssl-1.0.2 -> 1.1.1 as 1.0.2 is at end of life
* Xorg-7.7 will move from using the depreciated xf86-input-evdev to xf86-input-libinput, it is still possible to use xf86-input-evdev if required

Thanks, juanito. Everything that I've tested in the 64-bit version is working:

- flwm.tcz with Xfbdev.tcz
- fluxbox.tcz (from 10.1) with Xfbdev.tcz
- connecting to WiFi using wpa_supplicant-dbus.tcz and its dependencies

I will test flwm and fluxbox with Xorg-7.7 once xf86-video-intel.tcz is available (Xorg-7.7.tcz doesn't work for me without xf86-video-intel.tcz).

I saw an old post or wiki entry somewhere saying there's a place for users to report extensions from prior TCL versions that work as-is in new TCL version (e.g., fluxbox from Pure64 10.1 works in Pure64 11). Is it still helpful to provide this kind of information? If so, where to report?

Please report extensions from tc-10.x that work with tc-11.x here:

http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,23440.0.html

fluxbox and xf86-video-intel copied over.

The fluxbox.tcz that was in the Pure64 11-beta repo before (version 1.3.5, last updated 2013/11/10) was working fine with Xorg-7.7.

The fluxbox.tcz that showed up in Pure64 11-beta repo today (version 1.3.5, last updated 2014/11/30) is badly broken for me: Neither the panel nor the pointer appear.

Another small thing:

The sshpass.tcz extension in the Pure64 11.x repo has an actual md5sum of ...ffaa8 but sshpass.tcz.md5.txt says it should be ...6c795
This causes an error when installing the extension.

iptables.tcz lists netfilter-KERNEL.tcz as a dependency but there is no such extension. Maybe what was meant was ipv6-netfilter-KERNEL.tcz

Hi GNUser
There was talk about combining  ipv6-KERNEL.tcz  and  netfilter-KERNEL.tcz  due to a dependency issue. Based on the description
in the  .info file it looks like that happened.

Hi Juanito
It looks like  ipset.tcz.dep  is the only other .dep file with this issue in the 32 and 64 bit repositories.

I see ipset.tcz.dep, iptables.tcz.dep, l2tp-5.4.3-tinycore.tcz.dep, net-bridging-5.4.3-tinycore.tcz.dep, net-sched-5.4.3-tinycore.tcz.dep and sctp-5.4.3-tinycore.tcz.dep contain netfilter-KERNEL.tcz

Also, frr-dev.tcz.dep, quagga-dev.tcz.dep and strongswan-dev.tcz.dep contain ipv6-KERNEL.tcz.

Maybe @curaga could confirm the intent?

Hi Juanito

But only  ipv6-KERNEL.tcz  and  netfilter-KERNEL.tcz  had incorrect  .dep files in my search. The others appear to have been corrected.

Missed those in my search. I typed  ipv5  instead of  ipv6. :-[

    [EDIT]: Correction  "ipset.tcz  and  iptables.tcz".  Rich

The dep files I have in my 5.4.3 build folder all have the combined extension.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Seems the TinyCore* isos are missing libfontenc, X doesn't start.
