At the end of marking wine for deletion the apps gui states which extensions will be removed.

I just made a test, marking wine for deletion and rebooting - only wine was deleted.

What exact error do you get with the following:
Code: [Select]
$ tce-load -w Xorg-7.7-3d

2) What some desire is to "free" TinyCore from the TCZ format.  Not because of anything technical, but because of the submission/approval process of those in charge of the project.
Hi, PDP-8. Interesting observation. I, for one, have never had any problems with the submission/approval process. The rare time a tcz contribution of mine was rejected was when I had done shoddy work and I knew it. If some folks want to "free" TCL from its caretakers' sensible QA, it must be because their work is not very good.

Being built on FOSS, TCL is amenable to being forked. Anyone can fork it into a distro without QA or with more lax QA if they want. I wish them luck--they'll need it :D

We're splitting the thread into two directions, so I'll say this and drop out of thread.

Of course I agree.  One could fork.  But it's quite another to support that fork by building and supporting that community, otherwise it's just a flash in the pan.

.. outta' the thread ...

mtdev.tcz.md5.txt is OK on the server, so maybe you have a corrupted download - perhaps you could delete mtdev.tcz* and try again?

I did this before, but it still didn't work. I guessed later that it might be due to missing mtdev.tcz.md5.txt, but it was too late. I did something impulsive: I had deleted all of md5.txt. The solution I've come up with now is to use WGET to download md5.txt from the repository for all the extensions, but I don't know exactly how to write the command because I'm really new. My friend, can you tell me exactly how to write this command? Or do you have any other way? If not, I won't bother you, I have to reinstall the system.

For example:
Code: [Select]
$ wget http://tinycorelinux.net/11.x/x86_64/tcz/mtdev.tcz.md5.txt

@Juanito
I know. But I'd be suffocated.
Because I'm going to repeat this command for a hundred variations.

@Juanito
Is there a way or command to simplify this duplication of work´╝č
 I knew I could probably do it through shell programming, but I really didn't know anything about these things.

Something like:
Code: [Select]
$ cd /etc/sysconfig/tcedir/optional
$ ls *.tcz > files
$ for file in `cat files`; do wget http://tinycorelinux.net/11.x/x86_64/tcz/"$file".md5.txt ; done
$ rm files

Q5: How do I install Flash in Firefox or Chromium?
I followed the official Firefox approach, which doesn't seem to work because there isn't a ".mozilla/Firefox /plugins" directory, and it doesn't work if I put the libflashPlayer.so file in each lib directory listed in the PATH variable.

What happens when you create /home/tc/.mozilla/firefox/plugins and put the file in there?

@Juanito
I also created it by hand like you before, but it still doesn't work.  :(

A side note: Although H5 is now the mainstream, a large part of the website still uses Flash. I feel the same frustration as Adobe!!! >:(

Does this give an error:
Code: [Select]
$ ldd /home/tc/.mozilla/firefox/plugins/*.so
