in reply to Re^5: What is the format of a .packlist file for a PPM repository?in thread What is the format of a .packlist file for a PPM repository?
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' :-)
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 ***
id pkgs name
1 n/a ActiveState Package Repository
2 0 LocalD
3 n/a Dubious
(1 enabled repository)
ppm> rep desc 2

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