The Third Release Candidate of Micro Core v2.9 (microcore_2.9rc3.iso), is now posted and ready for testing.


Change Log for Micro Core v2.9

Release Candidate 1
* Updated tce-load - added support for recursive dependencies.
* Updated tc-config - persistent home and/or opt, changed ext only support to not Microsoft file system support.
* Updated ab to use tmp work files.
* Improved language support by auto loading locale support extension(s) when both "lang=  " and the "-locale.tcz" extension(s) are available in tce/optional.
* Clean up of reported relics and empty directories.
* Updated f2 & f3 boot message screens.
* Renamed *.core.gz to simply *.gz for ISO9660 compliance.
* Fixed bug in tce-update easy mode.
* Dropped the embedded help file.


Attention extension makers, please test the new recursive dependency process, but hold in abeyance until v2.9 is final.

Release Candidate 2

* Upgraded busybox to stable 1.15.3
* Upgraded udev to 151.
* Upgraded tce-load and appsaudit to support copy2fs flag and list in the base tce directory.

* Updated support for easy mode remastering /opt/tce now uses onboot.lst
* Updated tc-config to also make, if necessary, optional directory when tce= boot code is used.
* Added cache, .logo.xpm, and stats.txt to default /opt/.xfiletool.lst
* Updated  /opt/.xfiletool.lst to persist OnDemand menu item across reboots via normal backup.

Notes: Files likely in your backup that need updating:
The following have been added to the default /opt/.xfiletool.lst:


Note also that there is a new Xprogs.gz for the changes to control panel and appsaudit.

using my usb wlan0 netgear w111 v2 which works without issues with mc 2.8.1, and getting a segfault with 2.9 rc3:

rebuiltfstab[987]: segfault at 8 ip 0806f590 sp bffbc500 error 4 in busybox[8048000+7c000]

similar to what gerald_clark mentions for tc 2.9rc3

I'm not sure it's related to any specific extension, as I have seen it happen without any extensions loaded. So far I haven't found a reliable way to reproduce.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

i only have the following extensions loaded at boot:

kmaps, mc, links, bash, nano, and their dependencies; then, i have plug my usb wlan stick and loaded the driver for it, and i get this segfault; doing the same with mc 2.8 works without issue
