    Hi there,

    When I try to install about 50% of patches, I get an IPKG error, with the common last-line (in red):

    Offline root mode: not running {$patchname}.postinst

    Does anyone know the solution to this? I have searched extensively.

    Thanks,

    -Rob

    That particular line is not actually an error (even though it is displayed in red).

    Look for another line which gives the real error. It's likely a line output from Diff about the patch not applying correctly.

    Thanks for all the help - this "offline root mode" is a red herring. I think these problems are due to my 1.1.3 webOS from o2. Will have to wait for the November 1.3 update before I can realistically start reporting problems to developers.
