    When a patch won't install it gives details of what's gone wrong (at least it seems to me), but I'm just not quick enough to read between those lines in the installing process, which is then covered by the message jpk error. Is there a way to read what's gone wrong during installation? Maybe if I could read what's gone wrong someone might help me figure out how to rectify the issue, or that's not how it works?

    When you have installed it with preware I think there is an option in sysmenu to read/save the log (can't remember exactly).

    preware when showing the ipkg error log will turn stuff that worked green and stuff that failed red, the red stuffs the important part.

    Ow, I didn't get that, so the logs report exactly that process eh? Then I'm screwed as they're apparently useless...

    If you know how to sort this out feel free to drop us a line

    A patch is manipulating (system)files.
    This log tells you, that the file, the patch wanted to manipulate, is not in its original state:

    er that would be the part your looking for near the bottom of your log, just guessing from the words Unable to Run and Saving Rejects, it states in there somewhere another patch possibly affecting the thing that patch is also trying to alter so it refuses to patch something thats already modified.

    at a guess.

    I doubt that's the case, I already tried ERP and then install that patch 1st thing, same error though.

    well what it expects to be there and what is there are still in conflict, either the patch is wrong or the file to be patched is wrong.

    which patch exactly cant you apply, and on what device, others could report a similar issue perhaps.

    I see the patch in question is one of Sconix's patches. You could post in that patch thread to see if he could provide more info on the problem. Here is the thread link.

    Sometimes running EPR a few times will kick through those issues. But basically this line:

    Code:
    1 out of 1 hunk ignored -- saving rejects to file etc/palm/db/kinds/com.palm.person.rej
    is the file that is having the problem. If you browse to that directory you'll see a .orig of the same file. You could delete the current file there, then rename/remove the .orig from that backup file and reboot. Then try to apply the patch.

    That is probably not a recommended way of working with it, but first check to see what Sconix would say about it.

    Sconix was incredibly nice and told us that this issue could well be solved later on this year, in the meantime possible solutions are correcting the file manually or doctoring.

    I am one of the few that absolutely hate doctoring (I see here a lot of doctoring enthusiasts), and would like to understand how to correct a patch manually. I've read a few posts but I'm afraid I can't understand what's required because the info is scattered here and there.
    I basically have a patch (attached) to revert to its clean state, if anyone could point me to a post where there is a step by step tutorial I'd be most grateful.
