Very nice work
« on: December 01, 2008, 04:06:10 PM »
I remember you talking about doing this a long time ago, roberts. Nice to see it tome to life. I'll have to remember to play with it after finals are over.

Any chance we could get a list of the included modules, or, even easier, the kernel .config, so I can see if my hardware is supported. If it's not, I'll just drop in one of my (incredibly tiny and optimized for my CPU) kernels.

Thanks.

yes,very kewl. just the thing that life is made of.  simplicity iin complexity and complexity in simplicity. there is a definition I heard many years ago.  Complex means that the components are so complex that it it makes it easy for the operator.  Complicated meas just that,  complicated for the operator.

You're forcing me to learn "real" programming with the C++ version of FLTK ...or at least to suffer to confines of fluid.

I just downloaded tiny core and haven't booted yet, so I can't comment yet, but I'd still like to thank you for doing something I'd dreamed of for the last couple of years.

Hi Mikshaw,

Yes it is true. No lua here. But I only used Fltk/Fluid and the toolchain here. My preferred mode is PPR/TCZ
For an old guy, I really did have fun to convert to Fluid/C++ for all the GUI tools.
With the right compiler options and using shared libraries, you can really get C++/Fltk down to small size. I actually feel, I have more control over the GUI using Fltk/Fluid, plus no restrictions. All the Fluid project files are available for download.

Hi nice to join here. good to see some dsl experts here.

interestingly this is the 2.6 series kernel's smallest distro i suppose.

ofcourse good to see numerous extensions out there too.

more modules such as office, etc could be added in the repo with time.

the forum theme seems cool.

also just to say while registering the forum its better to send a confirmation mail from where activation of user could be done to avoid mock registrations. hope im correct.

looking for the stable release sooner.


and thanks a lot rebert and team for this new initiative. ;D
Thanks,
Sankar.

ofcourse and surprisingly the 10 MB core itself has most of the needed cli tools in unix (with beautiful package manager for tce/tcz and xwindows/jwm also), its jus amazing. i think almost its an new era of linux transformation.....

once again many thanks hope this transformation grows like an exponential curve :)
Thanks,
Sankar.

Congrats to Robert and all Teamates involved.
Fantastic job for this first release! :D

Finally installed it on my computer. I am writing this from Tinycore with Opera. It booted really fast and I am now playing with the app browser and some existing TCZ packages, installing GTK, and few apps, etc. It feels like Christmas and I have got a new toy!

Cheers to all

I begin to dowload tcl.... and its necessary to work in Image and communication of TCL ? because st google said that TCL is "Tool Command Language" and is difficult to go to tiny Core Linux...

thanks

Tiny Core is abbreviated "tc" instead of "tcl".  My own opinion is to absolutely NOT encourage the use of "tcl"  for Tiny Core, which would help to prevent problems for the real Tcl as well.
As far as I know, all currently available information about tc is found right here....it's a spankin' new project.  There should be no need to google at this point.

EDIT: on the subject of google...i guess you probably mean typing "tcl" in the address bar of your browser, so you an ignore that last sentence.
Yeah, Tool Command Language is a very popular and respectable project, so it's likely always going to be the "tcl" that browsers use.
The first thing I did when bookmarking tinycorelinux.com in Firefox was to add the keyword "tc" to the bookmark properties, so I just type "tc" to come here.
