Suddenly, when I access the PupGet Manager and click to see available programs, I get a page of text: "Xdialogue, etc."
It worked fine until a few days ago.
I have Puppy 210 installed on a 4.1G ext2 partition. Pentium II.

Under /root/.packages/ there is no alienpackages.txt. The only file is livepackages.txt, which is a blank sheet.
Thanks for any help.

try to move all *.files and *.keyword to a backup-folder.
Then try again.

If it works now, you know that there is one file containing an illegal entry.
You now can try to copy them back one by one, until you found it.

I found two .files and two .keyword files, one each for freecell and mplayer. MPlayer may be the culprit, since I installed it recently.
Anyway, I moved the four files to a new folder, called Backup. It did no good, even after a reboot. I'm still without access to PupGet.

Running it from a console and posting the results here might help:

Code:
sh-3.00# pupget
RETVAL=10
/usr/sbin/pupget: line 646:  3698 Terminated              xmessage -center -bg "orange" -title "PupGet" -buttons "" "Processing, please wait..."
sh-3.00#

Maybe locale-settings or a gtktheme are the reason.

Please follow Johns advice.

Also try this:

export LANG=C
pupget

If it does not help, try to delete (rename)
/root/.gtkrc
/root/.gtkrc-2.0
/root/.gtkrc.mine

John, when I put pupget RETVAL=10 into the console, I get back just what you suggested, EXCEPT
1. the first line of the output is "cat: /root/.packages/packages.txt no such file or directory" This is not surprising, since in response to an earlier post I moved this file to a "backup" folder.
2. after line 646: I get a different number, e.g., 5257 or 4905, not the one you gave, 3678

I can't find the files you suggest deleting, neither manifest nor hidden, in my /root folder
When I put "export LANG=C [enter] pupget in the console, the response is RETVAL=19

If all else fails, I can delete Puppy 2.1.0 from my hd and try again, I guess.

ok, so it must be something else.
You could try:
rename
/root/.packages
to
/root/.packages-backup

Then boot from the CD.
Now copy the folder
/initrd/pup_ro2/root/.packages to your harddisk installion..

Then you have the original settings back for pupget.
