Re^2: What is the format of a .packlist file for a PPM repository?by LittleGreyCat (Scribe)
|on Oct 18, 2007 at 15:15 UTC||Need Help??|
I used the gear wheel button (PPM Preferences) to add a new local repository called 'Dubious' which pointed to a folder which didn't have any PPM files in it.
The diagnostic messages displayed at the botom under the Status tab were:
So the diagnostic message is complaining about a 'packlist' and the nearest I can find to this is a '.packlist' file.
Thank you for your suggestion - I will follow that up and see if it makes any difference.
Bottom line still is that the old command line 'ppm' worked fine with my repository but the new GUI 'ppm' does not.
Curse you, WIMP!
Oh, my aching head!
This is with the '.packlist' file removed from LocalD.
This means in turn that me "result" of adding a '.packlist' file and not seeing the error messages is totally meaningless.
I think I'll just go away in a corner and sob quietly.
Nothing succeeds like a budgie with no teeth.
