Hi bjorn
putty doesn't work in version 11
Maybe you could share what error messages you get when you enter the  putty  command?

putty ran on every version up to 10.1 on 64-bit tinycore. There are no error messages, just a blank screen.

Hi bjorn
If you open a terminal, and enter the command  putty , you don't see any error messages in the terminal?

If you'd like to do a bisect and report the RAM regression to the kernel bugzilla, please do. I think it's quite possible nobody has noticed it yet.
Never looked at bisect before. And a bit rusty on compiling a 'custom' kernel, so not sure if I manage to get into this. I did put this on my todo list.

edit: And the 64-bit kernel is available on the 32-bit edition, for running with large RAM machines, etc.
Thanks for explaining! Wondered already before why sometimes 64bit extensions where present in the 32bit repo.

putty works for me in tc-11.x x86 and x86_64

Tried a few times more to start a 11.0 VM with just 64MB. First time it failed again, second time the VM booted normally with 64MB.

On 64-bit hplip needs to be recompiled against openssl-1.1.1, as it's looking for 1.0 now. This may also be true for 32-bit, but I haven't checked.

Having recompiled hplip, it looks like the problem is with ghostscript  :(

hplip and ghostscript posted to tc-11.x x86_64 repo

My hp network printer is found automatically and the test page prints , but most of the hp-* commands cannot find the printer..

Hi Juanito and Rich,

I use findutils and after upgrading to TC11 I noticed there is an error building the locate database with 'sudo updatedb'  because the sort utility is not found.  I see in the updatedb script on lines 111 and 115 a command to /bin/sort    The error is fixed with changing these two lines to /usr/bin/sort

thx
Billy

Hi Rudock1
Looks like a regression from the last update. The info file shows this in the  change-log:
Code: [Select]
                2019/02/20 corrected sort path in updatedb
Current:        2019/11/29 updated 4.6.0 -> 4.7.0
:

I don't understand why  /bin/sort  is not linked to  busybox  like all the other commands.

You didn't specify which architecture, but I suspect x86 and x86_64 are affected since their change-logs both indicate a recent update.

<sigh> at least this time I remembered the script needed fixing, I just fixed it to the wrong place - I'll fix the extensions tomorrow.

Thanks for the quick replies.  Sorry I forgot to say I use Corepure64 , x86_64

Also, I use coreutils.tcz which gives me the GNU sort

thx and good health to all,
Billy

Hi Juanito
Since the script comes from an outside source, and will likely continue to point to  /bin/sort  in the future, would it make sense to
add a link command in the  tce.installed  file instead of always modifying the script?

It actually points to /usr/local/bin/sort because coreutils is present at compile time.
