    Code:
    touch /var/etc/ipkg/webos-internals.conf
    echo "src/gz webosinternals http://ipkg.preware.org/feeds/webos-internals/all" >> /var/etc/ipkg/webos-internals.conf
    echo "src/gz webosinternals-armv7 http://ipkg.preware.org/feeds/webos-internals/armv7" >> /var/etc/ipkg/webos-internals.conf
    Very weird, ls /var/etc/ipkg showed webos-internals.conf as being there. Re-added webosinternals again anyway with the commands you posted (same as I had already run), and it went through this time. Interesting. And doing ls /var/etc/ipkg again shows exactly the same result as before.

    Oh well, don't know what the problem was, but thanks for your help.

    Also, the postinstall script as part of the packagemanager install *appeared* to hang up at one step, and for whatever reason my putty session actually ended up being aborted for some reason. Don't know what happened there either, but everything appears to be working perfectly, it must have finished correctly even if I couldn't see it happen. So it's all good.

    Preware wont load on my phone still. I've tried everything. Someone help me. I get stuck in the updating loop. It use to work. Now it doesnt. I have restarted, doctord and whatever else i could think of. It still wont work. I believe other people have this problem and it just gets ingnored.

    A feed could be down, and that would be the reason. Preware just loaded for me fine. Anyone getting the error 4 on the keyboard, is because the files are modified within the internals and you didn't delete the folder in USB mode. Use Repair utility to fix the modified files, and delete the folder from USB mode. Then try reinstall

    I would like a list everything option without the theme updates.. It gets so cluttered with all the themes and you can't find the apps..

    You went all-the-way back almost a month in posts to page 17 for those quotes? There has been at least 15 new releases of preware and the package manager since then.

    I can assure you that question has been answered. Many times. Did you bother to read a few posts after them to find a response?

    I have posted at least 3 times that in 0.9.1 if you go to "Available Applications" then select the "All" category, you could get a recently-added/updated list of apps without themes cluttering up the list.

    I see that happening on and off. Worked fine last night (with 1.2 WebOS) but this morning it just sat there saying "Updating" - waited several minutes, closed it out, tried it again and same thing.

    Rebooted the Pre, tried it again and it worked. Not sure why it does that but it's happened to me with every version of Preware that I've tried. Most of the time it works but some of the time it seems to get hosed up.

    I know that's not helpful information, but just wanted to mention that I also see this happen periodically. I usually check Preware daily, just to keep everything updated.

    Okay...I managed to get preware onto my 1.2 using webosquickinstall 2.03 and then installed the keyboard. I'm just curious...why all the pictures of the keys being stored in the photo section? If I delete them then the keyboards won't work. I really don't like having 328 pictures or so taking up space like that and cluttering the photo area. Is there any solution to this other than uninstalling?

    You're using the wrong version... remove it and install the latest. It was because 1.2 started to recognize PNG files.

    well...that was easy. Loaded up preware and saw an update hiding the photos from the photo section. Nice!

    No the USB folder has NOTHING to do with error installing. The USB folder is only theme images and configurations. It has no effect on whether the install succeeds or fails. You should only have to delete this folder if you want to clean up changes you made MANUALLY to it.

    Thanks for wasting space tho.



    Anyone else that is trying to update with Preware or Quick Install, the code is not ready for 1.2!!!!!

    For what it is worth, Preware works perfectly for me on 1.2, no issues at all. WebOSQI is another story.

    Yes I did read after them. And i went back a month cause i did a search for updating and just clicked multi-quote for a few of them. There are many more cause some just call it hanging or get stuck in the checking version. There are even a few threads that were started other places on this. I have read this entire forum and all you guys ever say is restart your phone and reload it. Or a feed must be down. Or we dont control the feeds. I have tried everything. Sometimes my phone is stuck in updating. Sometimes its stuck in checking version. What can i do to fix this?
  17. #1137  
    maybe you guys could let me try the previous package manager and see if it works?

    Preware works perfectly for me. I left it installed across the 1.1 / 1.2 upgrade and it worked fine before and after.

    We say those things because those are the reasons for problems that we have found. Once we find another reason, We just might say something else.

    Would you rather we lie? Would you rather we say nothing?

    Have you tried removing and reinstalling the package manager?

    Obviously you haven't tried everything or it would be working consistently like it seems to be for everyone but you.

    This happens sometimes. (See reasons above.)

    This happens when it gets stuck in updating, then you close and reopen preware. The service is still stuck on the previous updating request, and doesn't respond to the initial version check request.

    You say you've read the entire thread. I have nothing else to tell you that hasn't already been posted. We do ask for people with problems to send us copies of their /var/log/messages file (and a date/time when it happened.) How can we possibly know whats may be wrong without information beyond "its not working for me, its stuck on updating." Which is really all you've posted, besides a lot of whining.

    Quote Originally Posted by bigwood212 View Post

    Previous versions of the service are not compatible with current versions of preware. And I don't know why you would want to go backwards, new versions and updates are a good thing. Previous versions had a lot more bugs then the current version.
