I was having an issue in Preware on my TP, it would not display any available packages, so I had uninstalled it and was going to reinstall from Quick Installer.

Ran webOS Quick Install, clicked on the globe icon, but the installer is showing "No packages found" for all tabs except Themes. So I can't re-install Preware (or anything) from Quick isntaller.

Trying to find out if this this a just-me issue, or if there is a general issue going on with this.

sounds like your computer is unable to access the Index of /feeds/ package feeds. Possibly a firewall or something, I dunno

looks like multiple people are have issues with the preware.org feeds in Preware too, might just be a server issue. try waiting a few hours and try again

Having the same problem. Preware errors out when I invoke it from my TP.

Guess they are having server problems.

Thanks for the responses, glad to know it's not just me, likely server issue, then.

I'm getting the same sort of error - starts with:

Unable to run command: /usr/bin/ipkg -o /media/cryptofs/apps update 2>&1
Downloading http://ipkg.preware.org/feeds/optwar...kages.gz,wget: bad address 'ipkg.preware.org'

Previous line repeated for several subdirectorys of 'feeds'

I've received the same message at work and home (with no firewall issues) on my TP and Pre+

That's Preware errors. I'm in no way connected to the development of the Preware app. You'll want to contact WebOS-Internals about that.

That goes for the rest of you who aren't able to access the http://ipkg.preware.org feeds; contact WebOS-Internals as they manage the feeds. There's literally nothing on my end that would change that situation.

I am having the same problem on my PC. Running Windows 7, installed 4.3.1. Anyone figure out the problem? When I click the globe, it goes through parsing all the feeds on the screen. Nothing shows up in any tab other than Preware though. Darn I'm frustrated!


UPDATE: I downloaded the Preware.ipk and installed it through QuickInstall. Preware can't find anything either.

PRE MINUS: Had Preware installed for years on Pre Minus and it finds no feeds either!! BOLLOCKS!!

FIXED: Remove all feeds and add back one by one. Yet another dead feed problem.

Same problem on Palm Pre 2 and Windoes 7
- Reinstalled phone with WebOS Doctor
- reinstalled Novacom driver on PC
- Installed Preware manually and no problem working from the phone with wi-fi
- Running webos quick install I only see Themes and Linux Apps

What can I do?

Thanks very much
Stefano

I had same problem on my Vista laptop - 'no package found' only themes had content. I think it's a Vista/Windows 7 problem as I installed webos quick install on my old Windows XP pc and everything was fine (except patches but I've just updated my touchpad to 3.0.5 so guessing that's why). Good old Vista!

most likely not the same problem.

wosqi needs an update due to the recent change of the Preware domain from dot org to dot net.

there's a manual work around described if you check the thread discussing the Preware issue.

i'm hoping a fix for wosqi is soon released to address it.

in the meantime, you can still download ipk's to your pc and install them with INTERNALZ PRO, IF that is installed on your device. you just can't pull them in wosqi from the feeds right now.

Sorry, it's a sticky thread at the top of the section, titled Preware, that had current entries from Rod W himself.. I figured you would check that one first.

Since you commented there, glad to see you got it resolved.
