    Why on earth would you want to do that?

    Not sure i want to, just wondering if it's possible. The only reason i might want to do this is so i can run the latest build; isn't this an example of what you mentioned in your previous post?

    It is. But unless you have a specific, understood and clear reason to run a release that is not designed for the device you have, you shouldn't. That's the in the same category as installing a package before reading the Homepage link in Preware ...

    Thanks for the clarification, was considering trying this but was kinda leary since the gsm h/w has at least different radios than the cdma h/w.

    Btw, After studying the directory structure of meta-doctor, looks like baking additional patches into the doctor should be possible by adding them to the appropriate directory in 'patches' and then adding entries for them in the makefile, yes?

    mhous...

    I do believe that "baking in additional patches" is the intent of the Geneticist.

    (1) Use the [Meta-]Doctor to get a fresh build on your Pre.
    (2) Customize the Pre to your liking with patches, apps, themes, whatever.
    (3) Use the Meta-Geneticist to build a customized Meta-Doctor in traditional Doctor format....

    This way you can always restore webOS to a previous state... so long as you saved it that way. As long as you get a good save state... you'll potentially save hours and hours and hours. That's the one reason that Palm was so well thought of.... backup on their PDAs was, literally, flawless.

    Meta-Doctor is actually developed on MacOSX Snow Leopard.

    The Meta-Doctor has some new features:

    1) AUTO_INSTALL_PREWARE

    # AUTO_INSTALL_PREWARE automatically queues the installation of
    # Preware as soon as a network connection is available after first
    # boot. This feature also installs the preware.org x509 Certification
    # Authority certificate, allowing packages signed by WebOS Internals
    # to be installed via the appInstallService installHistory database.

    2) ADD_EXT3FS_PARTITION

    # ADD_EXT3FS_PARTITION adds a spare LVM partition formatted as ext3.
    # This allows space for experimentation that requires an additional
    # ext3 filesytem. The extra space is taken away from the USB drive.


    The combination of INSTALL_WIFI_PROFILES, AUTO_INSTALL_PREWARE, and ENABLE_TESTING_FEEDS means that you can flash a new device, and never need to plug it into USB again.

    That's incredibly intense.

    The EVO was making me twitch for a minute with Android Fever... but not anymore.

    You're like a machine, Rod. I think you deserve a raise.

    Latest version does not try to download jad unless you're using a custom var partition.

    But anyone using this really needs to know how to install the host OS package for a missing command ...

    Sorry, but i don't know nothing about programing & stuff, so i don't really understand what are you trying to tell me. If you could tell me what should i do, to prevent this errors i would be very grateful!

    lu...

    Try cleaning the build directory, removing your old Makefile, and update the Meta-Doctor from scratch...

    You can do all that by copying & pasting this one line (while in your meta-doctor/ directory):

    make clobber; rm Makefile; git pull

    Edit the new, updated Makefile one more time... then try to make unpack patch pack

    What Doctor URL did you use, and what settings are in your Makefile?

    Cut and paste them here.
