PPM: repo checkboxes were messed up

November 29, 2012 — BarryK
In the previous post I fixed a Service Pack fault, and mentioned 4 PPM bugs. Well I have fixed one of those.

This bug has been around for awhile. It is a curious buglet that occurs just once. Also, only in some puppies -- the Upups have the bug (including Precise Puppy).

The first time that the user opens the Configuration window and clicks on the "Update" button to update the local package database, then exits the Configuration window, then restarts the PPM -- the repo checkboxes in the main window have changed, even though no change was made in the Configuration window.

This bug only happens once, the very first time that the package db update operation is performed.

I fixed it, see script /usr/local/petget/, Woof commit:
