Hmm, I wonder whether
   chown tc:root /etc/sysconfig/bfe
in '/etc/init.d/tc-config' should rather be
   chown ${USER}:root /etc/sysconfig/bfe

The terminal window is opaque (also in rc1 i guess), whereas it was pseudo-transparent in tc-3.4 (I believe).

@Juanito: it's still transparent here on bare TC 3.5rc1 and rc2. Maybe it's a MC issue?

Might there be an issue with either wget or networking in general ?
I am running tc on a virtualbox, default settings, 512MB, booted off the tinycore iso.

doing a $ time wget http://my-local-server I see a real time consumption of 0m0.01s with tc3.4.1, as expected (it's 30k of data being fetched).

With tc3.5rc2 I see a horrible 0m6.01s.

Did a quick check with some real hardware and concluded it's rather not a mere vbox issue, but might be real. Unfortunately no time to explore any further myself...

@uli

There were only a couple changes to wget between busybox 1.17.2 and 1.18.1. If you find that is a busybox bug, please report it upstream.

Thanks. Replacing 1.18.1 by 1.17.2 did in fact solve the problem for me. Though I wouldn't know how to "report it upstream". But maybe some more senior bug hunter wishes to confirm and report the issue.

update: problem has been reported. Further tests show that issue persists in busybox 1.18.3

update_1 problem fixed in latest bugfix to 1.18.3
