Team Tiny Core is pleased to announce Tiny Core 3.1 rc2 is now available for testing and preview.

rc1
* New Size tab in Appbrowser - calls tce-size
* Updated Depends tab in Appbrowser to display dependency tree
* Updated /etc/passwd user nobody for missing "home" field.
* Updated /etc/shadow user root to remove default password.
* Added 'P)rovides' to ab  command line tiny appbrowser.
* Updated appsaudit to eliminate duplicates in onboot and ondemand lists.
* New Wbar_eXclude to exclude icons from wbar available in SystemTools. Calls wbar_exclude GUI.
* Updated wbar_update to process xwbar.lst created via wbar_exclude.
* Added Appsaudit to system menu.
* Added -s option to tce-load to suppress OK when using command line tce-load -is
* Code cleanup to appbrowser.
* New background and flwm titlebar colors.

rc2
* Updated busybox to 1.17.1
* New multivt boot code for multiple virtual terminals.
* Updated Appsaudit for ondemand moved to tce directory.
* Updated ondemand script to support move of ondemand directory.

In the base /usr/lib/libXft.so.2.1.13 depends on libfontconfig.so.1 which is provided by fontconfig.tcz, not in the base. Would be better to move it to /usr/local/lib in fontconfig.tcz

Same in TC 3.0

In addition to what bmarkus has reported: /usr/lib/libXcursor.so.1.0.2 depends on libXfixes.so.3 which is IIRC in the Xorg-7.5-lib.tcz entension.

I guess a similar question re. moving the file into the extension applies.

as the tc desktop colors are frequently changing, could i suggest trying gradients? i think tc looks better that way, like here http://wiki.tinycorelinux.com/show_image.php?id=1&scalesize=o
also, just a thought, but what about changing /usr/share/wbar/osxbarback.png to a one transparent pixel png? i tried it, looks nice, wheights less, of course, tastes differ.

I was wondering whether the new 'multivt' boot code should have an impact on '/root/.profile'. When using this boot code one can not gain a login shell for the user 'root' as the auto-login of the $TCUSER takes over in any case.

Maybe this auto-login should only happen if $TCUSER is not already logged in. I believe that could be achieved by changing the respective line to:
  who | grep -q "^${TCUSER} " || exec /bin/login -f "$TCUSER"

It's independent from noautologin, they can be used together if that is desired.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

@sandras: agreed, looks quite nice :)

@sandras,  what is your hsetroot settings, or are you using jwm specifics? And must also be able to show our logo!

well, this is not my actual hsetroot setting, but this is what i might suggest.

hsetroot -add "#6677AA" -add "#000033" -gradient 0 -center /usr/share/pixmaps/logo.png

thinking about this, though, this gradient thing brings inconsistencies with the wallpaper program. it can't set gradient, as far as i know.

Looks too purple for my taste. Gradient is not smooth as shown in your prior post.
Background and colors are so subjective and personal.

Since this setting is in one's backup, I will leave well enough alone.

I have changed from xsetroot to esetroot to now hsetroot each offering differing and/or additional options. Wallpaper has not caught up to all the options now available in hsetroot. Bottom line, I am reluctant to add bloat to something that is not operationally needed.

Done.

But please post extension issues in the "TCE Bugs" area.

Thanks.
