trivial (and not so trivial) issues:

The opt//sed permission errors have returned again (eg, while backing up).  
New: While booting, getting lots of complaints from extensions attempting cat /etc/sysconfig/icons.    
Maybe my imagination, but boot seems to be taking longer (haven't actually timed differences).  

edit: booting is taking about 1.5x  that of ver_2.3  (58 sec vs 38 sec).  
Fast booting was my favorite feature.

Not sure why extensions need to care about /etc/sysconfig/icons. Extensions should only care about  /usr/local/tce.icons.  /etc/sysconfig/icons is a temporary holder for the environment variable to be read and set and should not be a concern of extensions.

Don't fret over speed, it is still be worked on. Release Candidates are a testing ground.

I see one error of the form:

cat /etc/sysconfig/icons file not found

..when booting with *core*, wbar, flwm, flit, gtk1, glib1, emelfm, gtkfind, beaver in /tce

gtk1, glib1, emelfm, gtkfind and beaver don't attempt to do anything with /etc/sysconfig/icons

I see the issue with /etc/sysconfig/icons and will fix it.
Also will be testing an improved load to ram procedure.
Should make things much better.

..must be comforting to know users are booting the rc's with stop watches  :D

It is actually great that the community adds extra eyeballs on early testing releases.
It will surely make 2.4 a solid release when it is final. I have made many internal changes in response to community and team requests. 2.4 is more modular and a better fit with microcore. Although, this is, one of the more challenging release cycles. I now have an alpha of rc3 for team QA.

some extensions doesn't go 2 ram even they're listed in tcz2ram.lst, for example:
graphic-libs-1, libxml2, fontconfig, gtk2, pango, pixman, nss-nspr.

Dang, you guys are good. RC's just keep pouring out with big improvements, and every day the forums show little bugs getting squashed and newbie users being set right with astonishing speed. Thank you!

usbinstall error messages can't be read when script started in the right click menu as script terminates immediately.
I have updated usbinstall for rc3.
