Dear all,
i have just submitted picore extension packages for pd-0.48-1 to the respective repertory.
I hope i have met all the requirements, so that the package can become canonical very soon.

If you want to install them in the meantime, please grab the files from http://l.grrrr.org/puredata_tcz
The manual installation procedure is the following:


Copy the package files from your local machine to the tinycore:
scp $SOURCEDIR/puredata.tcz{,.dep,.md5.txt} tc@$TINYCOREIP:/etc/sysconfig/tcedir/optional/

then logon to the tinycore:
chown tc.staff /etc/sysconfig/tcedir/optional/puredata.tcz*
chmod 664 /etc/sysconfig/tcedir/optional/puredata.tcz*
echo puredata.tcz >> /etc/sysconfig/tcedir/onboot.lst

and reboot the tinycore


These are just the binary files needed to run pd.
The doc/help files are in the puredata-doc.tcz package, the development header m_pd.h is in puredata-dev.tcz .
To install those permanently, follow the procedure from above with changed package names.

best, Thomas

Thomas Grill
