Hi
Thanks to Bela, you and contributors for RPi TC development. README is on first partition.
Snippets from bmarkus' README....First partition..... is unmounted during operation.

Please consider putting a copy of README under tce dir to minimise dummies like me, from not seeing it, not researching it etc etc

In final release post  either say please read the README under tce dir and/or publish the user password

thanks for reading

Just a suggestion even tho its only minor. In 6 series if I restart the openssh daemon I get messages that:
file /var/empty already exists
addgroup group sshd in use
adduser user sshd in use.

I did a small mod to change the contents of /usr/local/etc/init.d/openssh so that line reads
[ -d /var/empty ] || mkdir /var/empty  in lieu of -f and that seems to remove that issue.

Yes I do know that every dir is also a file in Linux but forgive my weirdness.

Maybe at the same time the init.d can be converted to use group staff like x86/x86_64?

also, there seems to be differences between at least one dep file TC64 versus Arm 6
eg
http://tinycorelinux.net/11.x/armv6/tcz/fltk-1.3.tcz.dep
libjpeg-turbo.tcz
libpng.tcz
libXinerama.tcz
libXft.tcz
libXcursor.tcz


http://tinycorelinux.net/11.x/x86_64/tcz/fltk-1.3.tcz.dep
libXext.tcz
libjpeg-turbo.tcz
libpng.tcz

I have no clue why that is.

I think that is because originally fltk had been compiled against libXinerama, libXft and libXcursor, unlike x86/x86_64, but then the deps belong with ftlk-1.3.

Can't wait to install this (64 bit) on the pi 4B  xD Where can I find the nodejs source to compile? Do I just clone it from nodejs github?

It's better to use releases: https://github.com/nodejs/node/releases

That's where I was going to get it from ... what package contains gcc/g++ ? I need those to do compilation

Btw, it works great on the 4b :)

I would guess he did not expand the 2nd partition, and ran out of space downloading.

aarch64....I have a working image of it with flwm success desktop with ethernet. Yet to test anything wl or bt etc

One thing I noticed, the key generation is so much  faster than for my arm 6 11x.
I noticed you and Paul have been busy beavers populating the Apps list.
