    Turn the "Fix Unknown Types" preference on, and see if you still get the problem.

    0.9.7 has it turned off by default so the problem doesn't get tickled.

    Can you run ipkg -o /var list_installed and post the output please?

    Anyone else who has a dbus trace of a hang, please also accompany it by the output of that command.

    This is now starting to smell like a specific package is causing the problem.

    I downloaded PreWare last night. Along with it I downloaded the "Txt Manager" and the SMS Tone per contact patch and a couple of soundboards. Now my call log no longer saves my call history. I changed my Txt alert tone, message tone and notification tone. Its crap, the tone continues on a text even when I check it. It also changed the beep when I plug my Pre in to charge. now I hear my txt tone. There wasno option to get the default tone back, so I deleted TXT Manager and the SMS patch. Somebody Help Me!!!!

    With Rod's help, we seem to have found the package that is hanging up Preware during the "Fixing Unknown Packages" phase during startup. If you are seeing a hang while it performs this operation, remove com.danielfarina.prememo. Please post if that fixes the problem for you or if you don't even have that package installed and still have the problem.

    I did not have that package installed and was experiencing the problem until I upgraded to the newest service and preware on the test site.
  8. #3548  
    I was running the latest version when the error happened. Then I tried installing and unistalling package service and preware about every different way I could think. Finally I gave up and just Webos Doctored my phone. After it finished I was able to reinstall with the preware v9.5 jar file and get everything working. I then update with preware the package service and then the Preware. Still don't know what happened. I do run alot of tweaks, but who knows what happened.

    Note that there is no problem with that package itself, it just happens to trigger a bug in Preware. There may be more than one package which triggers the bug. Now that we know at least one package that triggers it, we can find the bug

    I had the tetris game from danielfarina. I deleted it and re-ran 9.8 Preware with the 'fixing' enabled.

    It ran to completion with no hangs.

    Nice detective work.

    Bingo...It is called PreTris (make that *was* called)...
    Removed and PW rocks right thru fixin.....

    Edit: I have a newer version of danielfarina's PreTris called BlockDrop still on there and that one is not causing any issues.

    It would be nice if Preware could save a profile of all the patches installed on your phone. Then after you do a Palm Update you can load your "preware profile" and re-install all the same patches easily.

    Found the problem.

    The appinfo.json file for PreMemo has invalid syntax:

    Code:
    {
            "id": "com.danielfarina.prememo",
            "version": "1.0",
            "vendor": "DanielFarina.com",
            "type": "web",
            "main": "index.html",
            "title": "PreMemo",
            "icon": "icon.png"
    }
    
    }
    
    }
    It's those extra '}' characters at the end that are causing the JSON parser to barf.

    Of course, Preware needs to be robust enough to handle anything that authors throw at it in appinfo.json files, so we should be able to fix this bug now.

    I want to express my deep gratitude to those people who have gone out of their way to help us diagnose this problem. You guys are what makes the community great!

    You guys ARE awesome. I have that same "pre-tetris" game as well. Let me delete and move along my merry way.
  18. #3558  
    Okay... so I figured out that I had the "fancy" time stamp installed. So... I uninstalled it, and installed the "builtin" time stamp... Both... have the same word wrapping issue...

    I installed the "clean" version... & wa-la... issue resolved...

    Thanks for all your help...

    An updated 0.9.8 alpha is at

    http://ipkg.preware.org/feeds/webos-..._0.9.8_all.ipk

    Same deal as before - but no need for dbus captures this time. Just tell me whether you get any hangs with Fix Unknown Types turned on.

    This fix is no longer based on guesses, but on being able to reproduce the problem locally after good diagnosis, so I'm much more confident that this one will fix all the "fix unknowns" hanging problems.

    Again, I'm looking for at least 5 positive responses from people who were getting the hang, before I push this to the public release feed.

    Thanks,

    As stated before I was getting the hang up before. I just updated to 9.8 and it went perfect! Thanks to all of you who spoil us lay-people so much. Plus, I did not delete the Pre-tetris either and all was smooth.

    on a side note: can i create a patch request in this forum or should I go to homebrew for that?
