Final Releases / Re: Tiny Core v15.0
« Last post by Dies_Irae on February 23, 2024, 08:16:36 PM »
When I read this, I think of the shell's "readline", and that are using in app links.

What precisely is the issue if I may ask? What are the 'app links' ?

As for the broken busybox 1.36.1 shell (the double prompt bug),
In cases where users can not remaster the iso (for what-ever reason, such as their vps host only allowing official distribution media, or simply because they find it complicated enough already to just dd the iso onto their usbstick), I see no way how to replace it and work around the issue.

By the time we get our first and seemingly only chance to slip something in (the httplist boot parameter), busybox shell is already in use.

IF there is no way to fix it, that it is to late to change the official iso, I fear those users will have to resort to an additional separate static busybox-ash that is not version 1.36.1 for their prompt (though a bunch of native tools and scripts are set to 'busybox ash' and thus wouldn't trigger their separate standalone busybox ash, I think. I'm just trying to think of solutions here...  (in case it is to late to fix the release/iso)).

Edit: Or learn to wait a good second before typing your next command (in case your current prompt just suddenly ends (holding the first part of what you typed) and new prompt appears).

Remasters / Remixes - Unofficial / Re: KioskCore - custom kiosk ISO generator.

Update! Now Firefox properly starts on boot and startx works. [Download newscript.sh on github] Plus optional custom version of remaster.sh: [Download on Github] With this, full ezremaster is not needed; only it's dependencies.

Did you check your local copy of gdk-pixbuf2-dev.tcz.dep?

That was it. Thanks.

General TC Talk / Re: Python Gui has white border - help?
« Last post by pomtom44 on February 23, 2024, 12:03:15 PM »
perhaps the monitor has "auto" adjustment to eliminate any misalignment?

I didn't consider that
Although it is a cheap unbranded odd resolution display, so not sure if it would have that feature?
Also it only shows when the python script runs, so im 95% sure its something to do with the "full screen" loading on the tkinter gui
I had to mess around for a while to get the maximise / minimise buttons to be hidden properly so it could still be a "border" on that window

Hi gadget42
... i had time to write it to a thumbdrive and it fails to bring up the gui and reports "failed in waitforX" ...
At that time you are at the command prompt. If you now enter:
Code: [Select]
startxDoes the GUI come up? If it does, it's a timing problem, and
here are two ways of addressing it.

You can insert a time delay as described here:
https://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,26391.msg170331.html#msg170331

Or you can set up a loop that waits for your graphics card as described here:

Instead of startx, enter the first line of .xsession to troubleshoot.

downloaded http://www.tinycorelinux.net/15.x/x86_64/release/TinyCorePure64-15.0.iso yesterday. (yes, good checksum)
today i had time to write it to a thumbdrive and it fails to bring up the gui and reports "failed in waitforX"
tried it in both a lenovo y580 and a thinkstation a20 with the same results
rewrote the stick just to double-check and had no change/improvement
rewrote the stick back to tcl14 just to prove my stick and methods

mostly i wanted to get this posted in case someone else has the same problem(so they know they aren't alone).

will investigate more as additional time becomes available.

as always, huge kudos and thanks to the whole tcl team!
