'install' choices fixed

August 13, 2011 — BarryK
I you click the 'install' icon on the desktop, a window with further choices pops up.

One button opens a web page with information on package management in Puppy, however, that was not the best page, fixed. Script /usr/sbin/dotpup.

Another button opens a window to choose SFS files to download. This is broken if the SFS file has a '_' in it's name. Fixed. Script /usr/sbin/sfsget.

Another button opens the Puppy Package Manager (PPM). One of the download URLs is '', however, this no longer mirrors Puppy PETs from I have removed it from the list. Files /root/.packages/DISTRO_COMPAT_REPOS and DISTRO_PET_REPOS.


PET repos bug
Username: Iguleder1
Barry, there's another bug related to DISTRO_PET_REPOS - take a look at the "*" case - only if a matching PET repo exists, the list of PET repos is set. Otherwise, the wooflet has no repos at all and Woof fails to download all PETs without a single error. It's problematic on dpup, because it doesn't have its own repo.
