Regarding tce-load usage:

Code: [Select]
# Example usage:
# tce-load -i /mnt/hda1/tce/optional/nano.tcz   Loads local extension
# tce-load -w -i nano.tcz                       Download into tce/optional directory, links for OnBoot and installs
# tce-load -w nano.tcz                          Download only into tce/optional directory

I'm a little confused just what options cause the "boot link" to be created in /tce ? Are both -w and -i required?

Could a little more explanation be provided.

Operationally the same combination of flags.
-w only  = download only
-i  only = loads local from specified path
-w -i = downloads and sets up link for on boot.

I noticed there's still an ftp indicator in the tool panel. Is this correct? I thought ftp was dropped from the base.

Also, any progress on the dropbear extension?

ftp was dropped. Where is ftp shown? AFAIK, not shown when booted base norestore. What window manager are you using?

I booted from cd iso. I'll try again with base norestore.

If you are talking about control panel tftp server, that is still available.

Could a little more explanation be provided for tce-update easy mode and inplace batch mode.

Code: [Select]
# If not interactive then check for easy mode or inplace batch update

easy mode and inplace mode are not new in this RC. Both are batch updates.

easy mode checks disk space available for update of all extensions, if so, creates an upgrade folder and updates download into upgrade folder, upon boot upgrade is completed before loading of extensions.

In place mode, is for smaller devices, e.g., a small pendrive, here each extension to be updated is downloaded into /tmp, md5 checked, then moved to replace existing extension.

Interactive mode is intended solely for calls from appsaudit.

Could a few of the more complicated usage examples be provided for the tce-audit command.

Code: [Select]
Usage tce-audit: {builddb|dependson|requiredby|nodepends|audit|auditall|delete|marked} extname

To build the database of dependices you need to specify dir, e.g.:
tce-audit builddb /mnt/hda2/tce/optional

To check for missing denpendencies on all extensions you need to specify a dir, e.g.:
tce-audit auditall /mnt/hda2/tce/optional

To display all extensions that have no dependencies you need to specify a dir, e.g.:
tce-audit nodepends /mnt/hda2/tce/optional

For all other reports use the full path, e.g.:
tce-audit requiredby /mnt/hda2/tce/optional/webkit.tcz
tce-audit dependson /mnt/hda2/tce/optional/midori.tcz

It is much easier to use appsaudit which loads up the path and makes selecting and reporting via the GUI very nice.

Of course using shell's edit capability of 'up arrorw' and 'tab completion' makes the cli easy as well.

Just out of curiosity does "tce2tcz.sh" still work?
I will remove it.

Yes, that is what I was referring to. So was the ftp that was removed only the client side ftp program or something else?

Sorry to keep pestering you guys.

I don't quite get how the Install Optional submenu item "Toggle Default Copy Install" works in the panel tool.
Could someone explain this?

This again is not new in this RC.

It toggles copy2fs.flg

If this flag is set all extension are copied to filesystem instead of mounted.

ftp client was removed.
tftpd a busybox applet is used for tc-terminal-server and it remains.

dropbear.tcz posted.

AppsAudit OnBoot does not seem to be doing anything. I moved all the extensions to /optional, rebooted, opened AppsAudit and selected OnBoot from the menu.

On the left I see all the extensions in /optional, on the right the OnBoot box which is empty.

So how do I proceed from here? Clicking on extensions in the left pane did not do anything.

On what device is your tce directory?  What is the file system hosting this directory?

I booted off the rc3 .iso, and used the USB install function to format and install tc on a usb device. I manually copied extensions to the usb device over from another partition.

So I guess the file system is whatever the USB install function creates. Can't check right now.

I noticed that OnBoot creates/removes symlinks, at least on my ext2 based tce-directory. If you are using a FAT file system on the USB that would not support symlinks, so it could be that the OnBoot functionality does not work on FAT formatted volumes. I have not explored the code so I do not know if OnBoot is supported with FAT volumes.
