    I dig it.
    I update my feeds manually two or three times a day.
    Obsessive? Maybe...but it also works out the phone when you are overclocking so its also good for that!

    Same here.
    Good excuse for it too... you have to work out your processor to keep it in shape.

    Does anyone know why I am getting this error when the feeds are updating?

    I rebooted, check my typing, etc, still can't get it fixed.

    Thanks!

    You have a typo in the feed name. 'webos-kernels-testing' is the feed name you need for the kernel testing feed. Nothing else will work. Incorrect CaPiTaLiSaTiOn will kill it.

    The URL is irrelevant, cause Preware automatically corrects it if you get the feed name correct.

    Rod, thanks!

    You know I went over and over and over it again and again.

    I actually had no typos, but bang! I left out the trailing '/' in each of the entries.

    I wanted to scream, because I was trying so hard not to ask for help in solving the problem.

    But after reading webosinternals over and over again, I looked at a link that were in the instructions and realized it was not showing the trailing '/' in the main page but in the mandatory reading section.

    And even there it wasn't really showing it. I had just noticed the html code and saw it in that.

    It did show up when scrolling over with my mouse on the main instruction page.

    So I'm all good now.

    But I do have a question!

    After I got it all working for some reason, the 'recovery' kernel is not showing up?

    Any reason why that is missing now, after I fixed everything?

    How about not giving me the answer, but just a hint!

    Rob

    Thanks again!

    UPDATE: Found the problem. I accidentally deleted the default kernels feed! I guess in trying to fix the testing feeds I swiped off the wrong feed and deleted it. Hey, I did it without even a hint this time!

    How this happened I have no idea. But I tried installing a theme and it looks like it worked out okay. Except for the fact that Preware doesn't detect it...

    What can I do?

    Installed through preware AND it doesn't see it?

    It half sees it.

    After it installed, the button still showed install instead of remove on the theme I had just installed. The theme category was nonexistent under installed packages. When trying to install it again, it failed saying there was already a theme installed.

    Ran an ERU and restarted and still nothing

    Just a thought, but would it be possible or worth anyone's effort to add a feature to Preware to be able to add a developer to the blacklist by swiping from the package list? Perhaps the swipe would expose an option to add either the developer's name or some other item.

    If there's a suggestion box on the wiki where I should post this, let me know.

    That is indeed on the roadmap. I expect the swipe would expose an option for the app title or app developer.

    I just had a thought the other day when wanting to install an ipk with preware and noticed when on the prompt screen to refresh feeds or not that install package is not available in the menu until the scene after refresh feeds and/or load feeds takes place. It would be more convenient to have it in the menu at the prompt scene too if one is only launching preware to install from an ipk file or url. I would add it myself but but can't because the video instructions for how to setup git I was provided is still broken (been checking almost daily for at least two weeks now) and I can't find another source to tell me how to set it up to help contribute.

    That's a good idea.

    Yep.

    Though I don't know how it will act if you try to install a package while feeds are being loaded.

    Oh I see if they choose yes and then go to install package and try to install that could be an issue if the two processes interfere. Solution disable install package menu item if yes or no is pressed and re-enable it at the end of the download and feed load process is completed. Thay way it is only usable before and after.

    Preware vs. Internalz for handling ipkg files?

    Feels like the battle between Internet Explorer and Firefox.

    Can anyone list the pros/cons in selecting a handler for ipkg files?

    Preware is a package management application developed and tested in the open. It has a single purpose, which is to install/manage packages on your webOS device. It has over a year of real-world experience doing just that.

    Internalz is a file browser that does other things.

    You make the choice.

    A closed source, hidden from peer review, file browser that only lately has has added the ability to handle the .IPK file format.

    vs.

    A built-from-the-ground-up package manager application that has been, and continues to be, developed in the open for over a year.


    Hmmm... Yeah, it's a tough choice.

    Weird issue...

    Realize that I haven't updated wife's patches and packages since 1.4.5 has downloaded to her Pre.

    Run Preware, get a failed install ipk error somewhere down the line as it's installing the 30+ patches and updates (including new Kernel/Govnah). Preware now shows three updates: including FB beta and Preware. Select and manually hit update on Preware. Close out and Preware isn't in App Launcher.

    Pull battery to do reset. When phone comes back, Preware still not in apps.

    Install Preware from WOSQI (believe its 1.2.7). Launch, and no updates detected, also the only installed package detected is set to 1, and it's preware. So though patches, etc are installed, they don't show in installed list. When hitting "saved package list" though, they do show, and I can update...

    How did I bork it up? what's best way to get Preware back to where it can see the Installed Package List?

    Run the ERU.

    I hope you shutdown fully before pulling the battery. Otherwise you risk file corruption.
