piCore-11beta GUI desktop install
« on: April 13, 2020, 01:20:54 AM »
Hi
I wanted to install GUI desktop on piCore.
When I executed "tce-load -iw TC.tcz"
I got the following error:
Downloading: xf86-input-evdev.tcz
Connecting to repo.tinycorelinux.net (89.22.99.37:80)
wget: server returned error: HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found
md5sum: xf86-input-evdev.tcz.md5.txt: No such file or directory
Error on xf86-input-evdev.tcz

Thanks.

It looks like there’s an error in Xorg.tcz.dep, I’ll fix it as soon as I can access the server.

Thanks for your reply.
It only happened on piCore 11.
On piCore 10, it could be installed without this error.

That’s correct, xf86-input-evdev was used in piCore-10.x, but xf86-input-libinput is used in piCore-11.x and the dep file was not updated.

The dep file has been adjusted, could you try again?

Thank you Juanito.
I have installed GUI desktop successfully.
Could I install browser on piCore 11.x?
How to do it?

piCore-9.x has the epiphany and fifth browsers, but I don't think they would work in piCore-11.x due to the change in openssl.

For the moment I think you would need to find a pre-compiled browser (firefox?), compile one yourself (dillo?) or wait until another user compiles one.

dillo added to the piCore-11.x repos - the source code has not been updated for some time and it cannot open many web sites.

Is it support Chromium browser on piCore 11.x?
How about Xorg.tcz?

Thanks :)

The aim is to have the mini browser from webkitgtk working on piCore-11.x (it works on piCore-9.x), but it might take a while.

I believe so - you would just need to choose the correct pre-built version.
