tinycore_1.0rc6
« on: December 15, 2008, 08:35:33 AM »
Release Candidate 6 is now posted.
This RC should be better in supporting netcards via dhcp.

* Moved dhcp to background from tc-config allows slower netcards to become configured.
* Terminal Server mod to accomodate new busybox.
* Added link to improve extension module support in PPI environment.

I forgot colors from dhcp.sh:

This release allowed the network to be configured automatically in one of my setups. Nice.

In addition, the change of making the output on one line might be better, so that the output during boot doesn't get messed up:
Code: [Select]

+    echo "${GREEN}Network device ${MAGENTA}$DEVICE${GREEN} detected, DHCP broadcasting for IP. ${BLUE}(Backgrounding)${NORMAL}"

Probably could get rid of the trap statements as well since it's backgrounded... but can't hurt to leave them in, I guess.

Colors & Typo  ;D
I have already cut down the text to prevent intermixing.

What? ;)

Ain't it usually a good sign when fixes start to be cosmetic?
