tinycore_2.2rc3
« on: July 26, 2009, 11:02:58 AM »
The Third Release Candidate of v2.2 (tinycore_2.2rc3.iso), is now posted and ready for testing.
http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/tinycorelinux/2.x/release_candidates/

Change log for v2.2 Release Candidate 3
* Updated F2 & F3 boot screens to reflect new boot codes bkg and thm.
* Updated tc-config to prevent possible race condition with additional calls to wait $fstab_pid.
* New flwget an FLTK wget progress meter GUI.
* Updated tce-load to improve interface to appbrowser and call to flwget.
* Updated appbrowser for much improved error message reporting.

There are no files in your home directory that have changed and need to be updated when moving from rc2 to rc3.

For prior requirements see the appropriate announcement.

Thanks to the community for bug reports and suggestions.
Special thanks to Mike Lockmoore and ^thehatsrule^ for their contributions of flwget

The F2 boot screen says "tinycore kmap=us -> US only unless kamp.tce is installed"
but in the TCE repository the keymaps package is called kmaps.tce
Thanks

But why can't I see my qucs.tce in the appbrowser list while it appears properly in the web repository list "Version 2.x TCE Repository"?

Robert,

appsbrowser works great in rc3! Installed both Xfce4.tce and Xfce4.tcz few times on a stock 2.2rc3 All files were downloaded corrected in all cases and got a correctly working Xfce4 after reboot. Download was never stopped, broken or freezed, just worked as expected.

A really nice improvement, thanks.

Thanks for the heads up on kmaps.tce.

qucs.tce shows up in appbrowser for me. Perhaps you tried too early,
Scripts are run on ibiblio to generate HTML tables and list and searching for appbrowser.
Not all run at the same time.

There was always this nagging feeling that the interaction of hosted aterm wget progress was involved and it is nice to no longer depend on several programs to display a progress bar. During the discussion of these issues it brought to other light issues with regard to the repository.

So thanks to ^thehatsrule^ & Mike Lockmoore for there interest in flwget GUI, and thanks to Jason for maintaining the hundereds of submitted extensions.

While implementing flwget in appbrowser, it gave me the opportunity to revisit and really improve error reporting. But, lets hope that the error reporting will be much less encountered.

It was the efforts of many which results in your observation and compliment.

the download button in the appbrowser always gives an md5 sum error message.

Would you believe that I just wanted you to see how extensive the new error reporting is?  :-[  No.  Didn't think so. My bad. I got tripped by the new syntax of flwget. Anyways, easy fix to tce-load line 112 flwget;  replace "$DOWNLOAD_DIR" with "." same for line 132. Thanks for testing and reporting. Thank goodness for RC cycles.
