Subject description: From Montreal to Santiago, some of us have a problem!
 

Hello all.

Ok. I give up. I searched the forum a lot tonight, and there seems to be
NO thread dedicated to the Puppy Package Manager ??? Rolling Eyes
Is this possible for such a major component of Puppy?

Yesterday night I perused the package-mgr.sh code and I got lost!!!

The problem is this:
-- on the French side, we have had a number of reports about the PPM not
working or ceasing to work after a while

-- as for me, I can confirm that my PPM on my DPupStretch-7_fr has been
kaput for awhile (screen capture attached.)

-- josejp2424 -- who produces the pupjibaros, a Latino Puppy -- has
decided in favor of synaptic and dumped the PPM.

Why?

-- is it because the official Debian Stretch has been released a few days
ago and the former download addresses for the *.deb archive used for
the Stretch tests are no good anymore?

-- OR is it human language related?

--- is some character in the translation upsetting the PPM?
--- would there be something in the script code itself that makes the PPM
allergic to French or Spanish?

-- OR something else entirely?

Anyone who can shed some light on this, please step up?

Or at least direct me towards some paths to possible solutions?

TIA.

I figured out how to add PPA's to the Package manager in tahr 6.0.5
but I can not get it to work in the tahr 6.0.6. This is the PPA http://ppa.launchpad.net/iconnor/zoneminder/ubuntu. Overall the PPM works most of the time...but....it certainly is quirky. I wish there was more info on it as well....I would really like to add this PPA to the DISTRO_COMPAT_REPOS in Tahr 6.0.6

Hi musher0,

Not sure if this will help or maybe you already did this....
http://01micko.com/wdlkmpx/puppylinux/Packages-puppy-stretch-official
http://01micko.com/wdlkmpx/puppylinux/Packages-puppy-stretch-official

Might not be suitable for what you need.

Thanks much, perdido. Really appreciated.

What I don't understand now, is that your URL works and mine doesn't.
BUT THEY'RE THE SAME, aren't they? This is nuts.

Or maybe I'M going nuts. There's a psychiatric hospital about 10 kms
from here. If you don't hear from me for awhile, please enquire at
Hôpital psychiatique Pierre-Janet, Gatineau (QC), Canada, and ask for an
old guy fixated on Linux package managers??? Twisted Evil

(Little tune from the Twilight Zone playing in my head!...)

BFN.

P.S. Maybe I should give up on the PPM altogether, and try NIX or Zypper
instead.

Seems to be the correct syntax listed in DISTRO_PET_REPOS in my old Precise Puppy.

Pierre agreed with you, tallboy, but Janet said it was rather a form of
Puppy Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Laughing
