'Exit to prompt' in exittc doesn't work after Xorg-7.4.tcz installed, system has to be restarted. In other situations including Xorg running it works as expected.

Yes. It exits to prompt, but startx doesn't start X. After reboot Xorg starts and works as expected.

Yes, I can do many different thing.

It was not a question but a bug report for Robert.

Hi bmarcus!

You don't think that the problem is caused by the Xorg extension? I've had similar problems before with the Xorg extension.

Have fun scrutinizing tinycore,

Maybe Xorg, do not know. I did not check it with 2.9 or 2.8.1 but it was working a while ago. In 2.10 exittc is changed, this is why I reported the observationhere.

Appbrowser status line shows '...tcz OK' with the previous downloaded extension name while downloading next. Showing '...tcz download in progress' for the current extension would be more informative; display 'OK' when all download finished only.

BTW, I like the yellow highlight at the end :)

I like the appbrowser update as well.

Wishlist:
However on larger downloads it would be nice to see a progress meter.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Next to your wish. Maybe in 2.11 :) There are some crucial new features in 2.10 so would be good to see final now.

Supporting alternate X servers have not changed recently.
The major changes occured in v1.3 and then slightly in v2.3 see the announcemets and change log.

Trying to install Xorg from within and existing X, be Xvesa or Xfbdev, means you would have to:
1. Ctrl-Alt-Bksp to exit from Xvesa or Xfbdev
2. run xsetup.sh  This will update your .xsession
3. startx

If you are lucky Xorg will run confless.
Typically, I must copy xorg.conf.vesa to xorg.conf before I can run Xorg
sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf.vesa /etc/X11/xorg.conf

- or-

As instructed in the Xorg info file, run sudo Xorg -config

Either way, running Xorg is not always seamless.

Hi y'all!

I totally agree with curaga. It would be very nice to have a progress meter in the app browser, It would benefit especially those using old computers (like me) and perhaps can't use the computer during the download. I usually do other things and take a peek now and then to see if the download is ready. So I think it would be a good feature that would be most appreciated (at least by me).

Have fun making tinycore  progress,
meo

Robert, my problem is not Xorg but exittc which doesn't exit to prompt. Simply nothing happens, system countinues to work as before. BTW, on my systems confless does the job, no configuration is need.
