what do I specify in the 'add a depends' dialog??

I need to add a dependancy for Lighty Web Server and ez-ipupdate.

I also can't get my service to register as anything other than an application. It's not an application, its a service. And no matter what I put for 'Category', 'Type', or 'Section', it keeps showing up in Applications in PreWare.

Any help would be appreciated.

Update:

First I want to thank you, Jason. Your app saved me hours and a few gray hairs.

Thank you thank you thank you!

I still haven't figured out what to put for dependencies.... but I have resolved all the other issues.

the ipk pkgr works wonderfully, but there is a flaw that I have been able to reproduce consistently.

Namely whatever, I put in for 'Category' or 'Type', the IPK gets built with those two flags set to MISC and Application.

I used a script I was provided with the unbuild the ipk that ipk pkgr built and inspected the CONTROL file and this was the case. I was able to reproduce it several times. So I ended up just editing the control file and using the script to rebuild the ipk after ipk pkgr designed the CONTROL file I new exactly what to put and where so it would be correctly categorized in PreWare and webOS QI!

Just thought you should know. Awesome app! Luv your work Bro!
