Mirrors, not repos. Isn't there a repo help inside configure, telling you what files to look at?

An odd fix - if it works - is fine with me!

I do have a Puppy CD from which I can boot.

Here's the deal.. I suspect your petget 0setup file's corrupted. This or someone else in your petget folder. So, run this code on your system as it is, then boot your live 5.x.15 and do the same. Save it to home before returning to the system with the issue. When ya boot back, and with'm both in the same folder, run an md5sum on each, one at a time.

If they're the same- your problem's elsewhere. If they're different- compare the 0setup's..
Code:
find /usr/local/petget -type f -print0 | xargs -0 md5sum > ~/meaningful_filename.txt

As I recall adding a non-listed repository to Puppy Package Manager is a nuisance.

Is there a PET that handles this?

I don't know of a way to simply redirect PPM to a non-listed repository.

BTW: Any idea why the existing repositories would broadcast the presence of several files then fail to serve them?

edoc,

Forgive me if I'm misunderstanding the situation. Is the problem with downloading or installing? Puppy's PPM does not know much about finding needed dependencies. You are own your own to find and install them. In fact, you can bypass the PPM. Just click on a .deb package with your browser and Puppy will offer to save it or install it for you whether it is the main program that you want or a dependency library or helper program.

What do you get when you click on the .deb file?

I'm not sure I follow.

Are you saying that the problem is defective md5's for the files on the mirror sites?

That is what is causing the download failure?
