Can someone ELI5 me how to create tcz extensions?
« on: July 19, 2020, 02:23:04 AM »
Hello,

I need to install several apps such as keepassxc https://github.com/keepassxreboot/keepassxc/, lbry.tv https://github.com/lbryio/lbrytv and so many other applications that aren't present in the repos.

I tried to google how to create tcz extensions, but I couldn't understand a damn thing, to be honest, the documentations seemed to skip a lot of steps and It seemed to be aimed towards experimented users...

So, I'm kindly asking for a nice and gentle soul to be able to Eli5 me and provides me step by step instructions on how to install an app that isn't present in the official repo  :)

Thank you a lot for your help

Hi john110,

First do `tce-load -i squashfs-tools findutils` then do this after you unpack the source and the ./configure or make or cmake steps :
You need to make squashfs extensions out of the installed apps:
Code: [Select]
...
$ touch mymarker
$ sudo make install
$ sudo find / -not -type 'd' -cnewer mymarker | grep -v "\/proc\/" | grep -v "^\/sys\/" | tee files
$ vi files [edit unneeded files]
$ sudo tar -T files --numeric-owner -zcvf extension.tce
$ mkdir /tmp/pkg
$ cp extension.tce /tmp/pkg
$ cd /tmp/pkg
$ sudo tar xf extension.tce
$ rm extension.tce
$ cd ..
$ sudo mksquashfs pkg/ extension.tcz

This is enough to create personal tcz. You can move it to your tce/optional directory and add it to your onboot.lst so that it can be loaded on every boot instead of typing tce-load every time.

After sudo make install, I get an error:

Have you seen:

https://www.linuxsecrets.com/tinycorelinux-wiki/wiki:creating_extensions.html

http://tinycorelinux.net/11.x/x86_64/tcz/src/keepassx/

Yes, I already read both and they don't help me much...

Using: http://tinycorelinux.net/11.x/x86_64/tcz/src/keepassx/

You need to do this first:
Code: [Select]
$ tce-load -i compiletc cmake libgcrypt-dev qt-5.x-dev zlib_base-dev

$ cd keepassx*

$ mkdir build
$ cd build

$ cmake -DCMAKE_C_FLAGS_RELEASE="-flto -fuse-linker-plugin -march=i486 -mtune=i686 -Os -pipe" -DCMAKE_CXX_FLAGS_RELEASE="-flto -fuse-linker-plugin -march=i486 -mtune=i686 -Os -pipe -fno-exceptions -fno-rtti" -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DCMAKE_VERBOSE_MAKEFILE=TRUE -DWITH_GUI_TESTS=ON -DWITH_CXX11=ON ../

$ make

Code: [Select]
$ wget https://github.com/keepassxreboot/keepassxc/releases/download/2.6.0/keepassxc-2.6.0-src.tar.xz

$ cd keepassxc*

I can't send all terminal logs unfortunately, because I don't know how to copy them (ctrl + c doesn't work and I can't drag and drop them).

I got errors:

From CMakeLists.txt:
Code: [Select]
find_package(LibGPGError REQUIRED)
find_package(Gcrypt 1.7.0 REQUIRED)
find_package(Argon2 REQUIRED)
find_package(ZLIB REQUIRED)
find_package(QREncode REQUIRED)
find_package(sodium 1.0.12 REQUIRED)
..so it seems you'll need argon, qrencode and sodium.

You could also try an older version, which might not need those additional deps.

How can I get these, I can't find any of them in the repo...?

Unzip it, cd into it, then use the same instructions.

What's up next? (I have a folder, but still no tcz extension)
