Tiny Core 13.0 Alpha 1 Testing
« on: December 27, 2021, 05:23:32 AM »
Team Tiny Core is pleased to announce that Tiny Core 13.0 Alpha1 is available for public testing:

http://repo.tinycorelinux.net/13.x/x86/release_candidates/distribution_files
http://repo.tinycorelinux.net/13.x/x86_64/release_candidates/distribution_files

This is an alpha level cut. If you decide to help test, then please test carefully. We don't want anyone to lose data.

Since this is an alpha cut, we ask that only experienced users test. This cut is not for general use. The features in any alpha are not fixed and may change before a public release candidate is available.

We appreciate testing and feedback.

Changelog for 13.0 alpha1:
* kernel updated to 5.15.10
* glibc updated to 2.34
* gcc updated to 11.2.0
* binutils updated to 2.37
* e2fsprogs base libs/apps updated to 1.46.4
* util-linux base libs/apps updated to 2.37.2
* busybox updated to 1.34.1
* 50-udev-default.rules: add media permissions
* select: require that "break" used in awk scripts
* filetool.sh: prevent gratuitous change to .filetool.lst's timestamp from bdantas
* tce-update: if no directory specified for "list" or "query", default from bdantas

Note:

* some versions of firefox will not start with 13.0alpha1

I'm abusing Tiny Core 13.0 Alpha1 x86_64 as much as possible and have not managed to break anything yet. If I do find breakage, I'll report here (hopefully with a fix).

I'd like to test this on my router as well, but because the  rt2800usb  kernel module inside  wireless-KERNEL.tcz  still does not support my antennas out of the box (they use the RT5370 chipset), I have to recompile said kernel module before I can do any testing.

curaga:
Where can I find the 5.15.10 kernel source code with TCL patches? I cannot find it at  http://tinycorelinux.net/13.x/x86_64/release/src/  or  http://tinycorelinux.net/13.x/x86_64/release_candidates/

Juanito:
In the last day or two I sent TCL12 x86_64 updates and/or corrections for eiwd, wireguard-tools, and nftables. Had I known you were cooking up TCL13 alphas, I would have held off. I'm sorry for the bad timing.

No problem - posted  :)

Thanks, Juanito :)

I've only found two problems so far:

1. I am able to reproduce the firefox issue. I'm using an AppImage of firefox 72.0.1 and tabs immediately crash with "Gah. Your tab just crashed." Terminal says "Channel error: cannot send/recv"

2. These two items in the changelog are not actually present in rootfs64.gz:
   * filetool.sh: prevent gratuitous change to .filetool.lst's timestamp from bdantas
   * tce-update: if no directory specified for "list" or "query", default from bdantas

P.S. This is the most polished TCL pre-release that I've used to date. Except for firefox, every GUI and CLI I've tried is working perfectly. Hats off to you guys.

Hmm - it appears I built rootfs{,64}.gz, but didn't post them - posted now.

Copied the kernel sources. May take a day or two for mirrors to sync.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Hi Core people,

Thank You for the next release of the best OS in the Solar system!
It would be nice to make tiny corrections to mplayer-cli.tcz.dep, now it misses
Code: [Select]
libXv
libXinerama
libXxf86dga

TinyCore 13.0 x86

Best regards and Happy New Year!

Hi jazzbiker
Those dependencies were pulled in by  Xorg-7.7-bin  and  Xorg-7.7-lib  in the TC10 x86 version. It seems Xorg-7.7 was
pulled in through this dependency chain:
Code: [Select]
   libswscale3.tcz
      libavutil3.tcz
         libva.tcz
            Xorg-7.7-3d.tcz
               Xorg-7.7.tcz

As of TC11 it changed to:
Code: [Select]
   libswscale4.tcz
      libavutil4.tcz
         libva2.tcz
which no longer pulls in  Xorg-7.7-bin  and  Xorg-7.7-lib.

Hi Rich,

Sometimes I use mplayer outside X, for audio or even for video with fbdev as output video device. I didn't want to say that it is an issue, just tiny inconsistency, nothing more, corner case for freaks like me :) Can be omitted easily.

tcc.tcz works fine with linux-5.15_api_headers.tcz, but tcc.tcz.dep still recalls linux-5.10_api_headers.tcz...

Thanks, Rich!

Am I right posting extensions questions in this thread? I expect the repo content is being tested too.

Regards!

Hi jazzbiker
