Bug in PETget

June 27, 2009 — BarryK
When you click on a PET package in a Rox window, the 'petget' utility runs and installs the package. There was a report in alpha9 that the installation wasn't registering and couldn't be uninstalled. I tested it then and it worked for me.

Now however, I am getting the bug. It seems to have installed ok, but hasn't created the appropriate '.files' file in /root/.packages.

Okay, found the problem, fixed it.

"Hi Barry 2 things, Have you removed the code that deletes Pet packages automatically without warning if the package is in the 'root' directory? Also in 4.15 I was testing the installer and Installed XMMS, now we both know that XMMS is a gtk1 application and not supported by default in the whole 4 series, So the package manager installed it and said nothing was missing and it was ok. LOL So the I did the ldd and sure enough all the gtk1 files are missing, like they should be, so the dependency checker isn't working. ttuuxxx
