install firefox-esr failed
« on: April 12, 2020, 09:03:44 PM »
I have 14 laptops running tiny core, and on 13 of them, I have firefox installed with no problem.

I have 1 laptop though, that keeps giving me "failed".  I have, however, recently installed other apps (chromium and space.fm), so not all apps are failing.

How I try to install:  click "app", select "cloud/remote", select "browse", search for "firefox", select firefox-ESR.tcz.  At the bottom it says "OnBoot".  I click "Go".

The tce-load window pops up and I see:
firefox-ESR.tcz.dep OK
Downloading:  gtk3.tcz

Then a couple of things flash by too quickly to see and the "status" window says "tce-load -wi firefox-ESR.tcz Failed."

If it help:
showbootcodes says:
BOOT_IMAGE=/tce/boot/vmlinuz quiet waitusb=5:UUID="9f64a8c1-e43e-49f2-b0c1-3b28444b3713" tce=UUID"9f64a8c1-e43e-49f2-b0c1-3b28444b3713" initrd=/tce/boot/core.gz

Hi kirin-rex
To see the errors, open a terminal and enter:
Code: [Select]
tce-load -wi firefox-ESR

I checked the gtk3 md5sums on the server and they are OK.

Maybe you have a corrupted download - could you delete gtk3.tcz and gtk3.tcz.md5.txt locally and try again.

Thank you!  That worked perfectly!  I deleted gtk3.tcz and gtk3.tcz.md5.txt and was then able to download and use firefox.  Thank you for your awesome advice and help.
