The theme for v2.7 is make TC/MC simplier by promoting the 'mount install' method.

Change log for v2.7rc1:

* Updated tce-load - dropped l,m,lm,ml testing, ldconfig always called, depmod based on /usr/local/lib/modules, dropped -r option
* Renamed tcz2ram.flg, tcz2ram.lst to copy2fs.flg and copy2fs.lst
* New cache-clear script.
* Removed mbchk and libpopt* as unneeded in base.
* Stripped more libs for smaller size.
* Updated exitcheck.sh to call /opt/shutdown.sh for user shutdown time commands.
* New 'ab' a tiny appbrowser in shell
* Updated tce-update and tce-setup to implement an 'easy mode' to update extensions in your tce folder

Note:
Updated extensions for v2.7

rsync.tcz
OSS.tcz
flwm.tcz
flwm_topside.tcz

Note to use OnDemand for flwm, you need to update your /opt/.xfiletool.lst and change:
home/tc/.wmx  to  home/tc/.wmx/Applications

If I remaster Micro Core to place the extensions rsync.tcz and popt.tczl in /opt/tce and to place the names of those extensions in the file /opt/tce/copy2fs, then those extensions are mounted, not copied into RAM as I expected.

That should be copy2fs.lst.

That was a typo; I have verified that I did place the names of those extensions in the file /opt/tce/copy2fs.lst.
