    I CANNOT get the WebOS Kernals testing feed to work in Preware....i've tried countless times.

    I add "webos-kernels-testing" into the name and then I put http://preware.is.awesome.com/ in the URL field. Once I do all that and then reset and then open up preware again i get an error

    its realllllly long so i dont wanna type the whole thing but in there is says...


    an error occured. return value: 1.,Collected errors:,ipkg_download: ERROR: Command failed with reutnr value 1:`wget --passive-ftp -q -P /tmp/ipkg-iq29h2http://preware.is.awesome.com//packages.gz'

    uhh... I don't think that's the real URL for the testing feed.

    Where did you come up with that?

    HAHA... looks like someone tricked you good. http://preware.is.awesome.com/ is definitely NOT the url for the kernal testing feed... oh man... thanks for the laugh. That made my night.

    I would be more helpful... but other posts have already answered your question.

    Actually that is a valid url and will get you all the testing feeds so long as you put the correct name in for it and follow the correct instructions. Don't follow the instructions and you get an error like this.
