Tiny Core Linux 2.1 Is Out (Download)
« on: 29. June 2009., 15:49:02 »

Comes with improved notebook support and many updates

Robert Shingledecker, founder of the Tiny Core Linux project, announced yesterday, June 28th, the release of Tiny Core Linux 2.1, a very small Linux distribution that is only 11 MB in size. This version comes with many updates as well as important features: the new modutils will further improve space efficiency and two added modules, hwmon and rfkill, bring better support for laptops.

Highlights of Tiny Core Linux 2.1:

· The df and mount bind options are now better supported through the inclusion of tmpfs instead of initramfs;
· A new squashfs module fixes several boot crashes;
· The new Aterm application better interacts with appbrowser;
· Added WaitforX to fix WM timing problems;
· Updated Busybox to 1.13.4;
· Added usbinstall, a CLI (command line interface) tool to provide easy USB installations on different devices: pendrives, USB HDDs, USB Zips or USBext;
· Added the batch upgrade script;
· The virtual hard drive was updated and now supports persistent home;
· Extra shells were eliminated by updating the and jwm_makemenu;
· Startx now supports additional X server core elements;
· tc-config and tc-restore were updated and norestore was moved to tc-config;
· The tce-wget CLI extension fetcher was updated;
· Crond and sshd were moved after restore to better support user selected options;
· Improved mountpoint detection by adding a space to the end of searched devices in tc-functions;
· Removed memdisk and mbr.bin, already present in the extensions;
· Extra delimiters in the date section of a filename were removed;
· The system now falls back to prior lspci;
· Fixed a bug in the "nofstab" boot option.    

About Tiny Core Linux

Tiny Core Linux aims to be an extremely lightweight core desktop upon which users can install their choice of applications. It can operate in four modes: Cloud/Internet – the default boot mode where the system boots entirely in the RAM, PPR/TCE mode – the user has to specify a persistent storage partition and can use the TCE repository, PPR/TCZ mode – the same as PPR/TCE, except it uses the TCZ extension type, and the PPI/TCE mode – installs extensions on a Linux partition or a loop back file.
