    Yes please. All reports are more useful if we know whether it is repeatable or not.

    I was not able to retest before I updated to 1.4.5 last night but I will test sometime today on 1.4.5. However I think it is repeatable as I installed fstab fix using the link to the ipk that you tweeted. And I had the same result again so closed Preware. What's the best way to see if it installed or not? I will do more testing later on when I'm back home.

    Edit: Preware is reporting tha it has installed correctly. I will test and jump on the irc later.
    Edit: Pretty sure it didn't install correctly as wirc won't launch.

    I have a feeling 1.2.0's new IPKG installer feature doesn't like spaces in directory names. I have a folder in my /media/internal called "Palm Pre Tethering" where I keep the Mobile Hotspot IPKG, and when I tried installing it I got this in my log:

    Failed
    -1: Unable to run command: /usr/bin//curl --create-dirs --insecure --locaton --fail --show-error --output /media/internal/.developer/com.palm.app.mobilehotspot_1.0-1.0.11_armv7.ipk file:///media/internal/Palm Pre Tethering/com.palm.app.mobilehotspot_1.0-1.0.11_armv7.ipk 2>&1
    curl: (37) Couldn't open file /media/internal/Palm
    curl: (6) Could not resolve host: Pre (Domain name not found)
    curl: (6) Could not resolve host: Tethering (Domain name not found)
    I moved the IPKG to a folder with spaces, and the error did not occur. (It got stuck on the big spinner saying "Downloading / Installing SUCCESS", but that seems to be a separate issue.)

    Like I mentioned in my last comment, I had the same problem, but mine froze at "Downloading / Installing SUCCESS". I left it running, went into my launcher, and the program (Wireless Hotspot) was there. I ran it and it works perfectly fine, even though Preware is still spinning away as I type this. :-)

    I installed Preware 1.2 after updating to WebOS 1.4.5 (Bell).

    You know, I didn't even think to test this. Guess thats why we got the "testing feed." I may be able to fix this in the app by enclosing all the urls sent to the service in quotes, but the service may not like it (I believe it checks for "acceptable characters" which a quote is not.) So it would need to be done at the service level... Rod? I can't think of any reason not to just enclose all paths/urls in quotes.

    I have yet to see a repeatable test case for getting stuck at the spinner. Any chance you can provide one? Are there any errors in /var/log/messages pertaining to preware when this happens?

    Maybe someone will change the service so we can install patch files this way. But for the time being, I'll add a regular expression to make sure the url/path ends in .ipk and tell the user if it doesn't.

    working great! Tried from file,ftp & http! :smile Had a few problems in the beginning when downloading ipkg's from my pre but for some reason it wouldn't download the full ipkg which would cause the failed_install! Also tired the email and had no problems!(ofcourse I was limited to the size of the file I could send) also uploaded to zumo drive but I couldn't install from link but you can download then have to rename using internal after you download to your pre!

    I am getting this error in preware now.



    Anyone had this problem?

    And the space bug fix has been pushed. (Expect it in the next release.)

    Why did you have to rename it? (I have never used zumo drive.)

    I have never seen it. I don't even know what DOM Exception 11 is, haha. I can tell you it definitely has to do with the saved package list (Which I will probably be changing to be better in the near future.)

    Have you tried simply re-installing preware? Be sure you remove it with an orange+tap on the icon in the launcher, then reinstall it.

    I wish Preware had a way to store the Installed Packages lists to a text/memo file. This way if all else failed I could manually reinstall all my packages from a list.

    I wished for / suggested exactly this months ago for the *exact* reason you state. It'd be simple to write a FOR loop to plow through a flat file reinstalling it all.

    The idea was over ruled / tossed aside.

    Sorry I haven't gotten back to you on this. I'm at work without a micro-USB cable. :-P But I will see if I can get it to happen again.

    I was confused the first time it came up and I'm still confused. With save/restore able to backup and restore the saved package list and preware having the install all for the saved package list, why is a text file of the list needed?

    Here are my reasons:

    1. Peace of mind
    2. I still like paper
    3. People could post their package lists for comparison or debugging
    4. When all else fails - have read multiple posts about people fragging their saved lists

    If Save/Restore could do selective restores that would be a big help too.

    1) Open Save/Restore
    2) Select Restore Application Data
    3) Select Preware
    4) Hit Restore

    Move the zip files to and from the USB drive as you please to backup your saved data at any time and to designate which zip file should be restored.

    If you want a paper list, type the following on the command line:

    Code:
    ipkg -o /media/cryptofs/apps list_installed
    Anyone who can "write a FOR loop to plow through a flat file reinstalling it all" can type that to get the list in the first place.

    If you want that list as a text file on your USB drive:

    Code:
    ipkg -o /media/cryptofs/apps list_installed > /media/internal/luddite.txt

    Code:
    for PKG in $(cat my_packages) ; do ipkg -o/media/internal/aps install "$PKG" ; done
    That's why. No fuss. No SQL DB to go bad. One line. Easy.

At least the Palm catalog app is always there even after other things get erased. Could be very helpful.

    Also seems like it would make it easier for us noobs...
