in thread What is the format of a .packlist file for a PPM repository?

Adding a local repository in 822 works OK for me with the GUI. Might there be some firewall, proxy, or permission issues?

    Does your local repository have the packaging summary files?

    In my current local repository all I have is a directory with 'ppd' files and below that a directory with the zipped code

    This works with the old version of command line 'ppm' but so far I haven't been able to get the new version to work with it as it stands.

    When I get back on it I plan to use your helpful information about building the packaging files and see if this solves the problem.

    Bottom line - my old repository has stopped working with the new 'ppm'. I think I see how to fix it but I am still undecided if this is a 'BUG' or a 'FEATURE' :-)

    Nothing succeeds like a budgie with no teeth.
      My local repository works with and without the summary files; if a summary file is there, it uses it, and if it's not, it downloads and parses each ppd file it finds.
        Now completely baffled

        Size Issue? I have over 7,000 local '.ppd' files

        I know it works with nearly 7,000 from a remote web site with the package files but could there be an issue with reading the files where there is no index?

        I have got the command line working:

        ppm> rep sync --force --max-ppd 8000 2 Downloading LocalD packlist...done ppm> s ldap *** no packages matching 'ldap' found *** ppm> rep Да id Да pkgs Да name Да Да 1 Да n/a Да ActiveState Package Repository Да Да 2 Да 0 Да LocalD Да Да 3 Да n/a Да Dubious Да (1 enabled repository) ppm> rep desc 2 Id: 2 Name: LocalD URL: file:///D:/ActiveState_CD/ppmrep Enabled: yes Last-Status: 200 OK Last-Access: 2 minutes and 24 seconds ago Refresh-In: 10 hours Last-Modified: 4 days ago ppm>
        The active repository with 0 packages in is the same one I used with the earlier version of ppm (as in 817) which could find all the packages.

        I now just don't know what is going on; it is probably something simple as your works.
