    How do I create an IPK for a script that will execute and perform some actions, and the uninstall itself? This is similar to the AUSMT recovery scripts and the older Emergency Reconstruction/removal packages work. I know if I exit with a non-zero exit code it will be reported as an error by Preware or WOSQI, but the packages I just referenced report as successfully applying. Is there a particular exit code that does this, or another advanced IPK option?

    I think I managed to answer my own question by opening one of the self-removing packages in the Preware feed.. At the end of the postinst script (which does the work in this case) it does this:
    ipkg -o $IPKG_OFFLINE_ROOT remove $PACKAGE
    $PACKAGE is defined earlier and is just the package id. IPKG_OFFLINE_ROOT is a system variable visible to the script.
    Remy X, vgg and gizmo21 like this.

    hi, Grabber, you helped me already many times, I'm trying since 5 days to download webos doctor 3.0.5 for my tp,
    but the Hp site doesn't work anymore. I'm correct? there are other ways to download? If not, thanks anyway.
