    I downloaded preware last night and love it. I see other patches in preware but I cannot find any information on them. Example, terminal service plugin, GNU binary, optware loopback, accelerometer service, and simple timer app. Where can I find out what these patches do?

    Thanks

    Those are not patches. They are helper services and plugins.

    See the WebOS Internals wiki pages for details.

    fileCoaster is still very useful for the purpose that it's name describes - downloading files onto the Pre.

    Preware uses the Package Manager Service developed by the WebOS Internals team to be able to securely install Advanced Homebrew. Any other open source installer application is welcome to use the same service to add this capability. We do not allow closed source installers to use the service, since we need to be able to do a security review of the installer source code to make sure it is doing things properly and not compromising the security of the Pre (we had a problem previously where the closed source MyTether application was using a proof-of-concept command line service incorrectly and introduced a huge security vulnerability as a result).

    I believe that PreLoad currently uses the same installation technology as fileCoaster (and therefore cannot currently install Advanced Homebrew). However, since PreLoad is open source, it could easily be updated to use the new Package Manager Service. PreLoad already uses the standard package feeds from preware.org, so it already has access to all the homebrew applications that are available from all 4 originating sites (PreCentral, WebOS Internals, Canuck Software, PimpMyPre).

    See Towards an open, interoperable homebrew ecosystem for the reason why we created Preware and the Package Manager Service.

    Is there an alternative way to install PreWare other than through WebOS Quick Install?
    Thing is, that won't install on my Mac and apparently nobody can help me.

    I have a rooted Pre so... is there something I can run from the commandline to get it going?

    Any that don't have a page on the wiki are not ready for general use.

    The source code to all of them is available for developers to use.

    Pardon? Which part of the following is not clear?

    The official installation instructions for Preware at Application:Preware - WebOS Internals say the following:

    Installation Steps
    ===========
    * Run WebOS Quick Install
    * Press the third button on the right
    * Choose WebOS Internals Feed (all) from the dropdown list at the top.
    * Select Package Manager Service and Preware from the list.
    * Press DOWNLOAD.
    * Press INSTALL.
    If that is too hard, perhaps the instructions written by Dieter at http://www.precentral.net/screen-vir...o-mere-mortals might be of assistance? That one includes pictures with big red circles on them to show you which buttons to push, and separates it into even simpler steps:

    Now you want to download one file, install it, then download a second file, and install that. It's important do you do it in that order, so:

    1. Select "Package Manager Service"
    2. Click download, then close
    3. Click "Install" on the Main WebOS Quick Install Page
    4. Click the feeds button again
    5. Go back to the WebOS Internals (all) feed
    6. Select "Preware"
    7. Click download, then close
    8. Click "Install" on the Main WebOS Quick Install Page
    Please, tell us which parts of that are not clear ...

    We expect you to use a civil tone when posting in this thread.

    We do not appreciate being shouted at. We are volunteers who provide this software for your usage at no cost, and at great expense of time.

    Perhaps you might like to reassess your approach to requesting help in the future ... and apologise to the many developers who contributed to Preware before showing your face in here again.

    It's not an app (it's a service), it's not ready for use, and it has been removed from the feeds to avoid confusion.

    The source code is at http://git.webos-internals.org/?p=se...opService.java - lines 92 and 104 are the interesting ones.

    I did the same thing and after I restart it shows the icon, but kind of weird that the first time I tried it showed AoNet, but now when I scan for network connections it doesn't show it anymore. Any ideas?

    I guess the problem was that I had WiFi turned on and it was already connected to my wireless.

    How long does it take to load the first time --- it's been loading for what seems like hours.
