PPM repo-list fix

December 05, 2010 — BarryK
PaulBx1 reported a bug with the radiobutton list of repositories along the top of the PPM window -- the selected radiobutton did not always match the actual packages being displayed.

I fixed it, and posted it here:

...grab this if you have any recent Woof-built Puppy. It has all the latest goodies that I have reported on my blog.


mistake maybe

"I mentioned before this fix about the radiobuttons involved 4 places in the code. I noticed that I had only made the 'active="true" ' change to 3 places in my copy, apparently forgetting the one for setting COMPAT_DBS. So I changed that one too - and now I can't invoke PPM! :-( If I take it out, it works fine. So I have to conclude I am shooting in the dark here. I wish GTK was better documented so I could understand what the heck is going on. bug
