[SOLVED] Updating expat2.tcz failed
« on: April 24, 2014, 12:24:38 PM »
In TC 5.3, running the GUI AppBrowser and requesting
 Apps -> Maintenance -> Check for Updates
I am encouraged to update expat2.tcz, but then the operation always fails. For me, this issue has been ongoing for several weeks. Unfortunately I don't know how to diagnose the cause, or suggest a solution. Can someone else help fix this?

There are several things you can try.
Check MD5 sums.
Update Deps.
install missing deps.

I have this issue sometimes, too. I guess it's due to my rather crappy internet connection (via USB modem).

You can fetch failing extensions via wget:
Code: [Select]
ce
cd /optional
wget -c http://www.tinycorelinux.net/5.x/x86/tcz/expat2.tcz
wget -c http://www.tinycorelinux.net/5.x/x86/tcz/expat2.tcz.dep
wget -c http://www.tinycorelinux.net/5.x/x86/tcz/expat2.tcz.info
wget -c http://www.tinycorelinux.net/5.x/x86/tcz/expat2.tcz.md5.txt

Then check if there are any dependencies:
Code: [Select]
cat expat2.tcz.dep
Download a copy and keep it handy: Core book ;)

The zsync file of expat2 was out of date. Fixed.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Thanks, Curaga. Now it works for me. (Gerald, of course I had tried all those wise suggestions before posting.  ;) )
