For sometime now the install-packages script in each directory has failed to work for me.
Following is based on pkgtools-10.1.0-i486-4 and has been a problem for me for a while.
Documentation for dialog --checklist says --seperate-output option is not given, the strings will
be quoted to make it simple for scripts...
Well I guess the default has changed because there are no quotes "" seperating the names/fields
sh -x ./maketag shows the fgrep statement is trying to find "$PACKAGE" in the SeTpkgs file which
results in everything being set to "SKP" in the SeTnewtag file.
If the line in each maketag file is changed to:
if fgrep $PACKAGE $TMP/SeTpkgs 1> /dev/null 2> /dev/null ; then
results in proper creation of the SeTnewtag file.
The above message was recently sent to Mr. V and could also be the cause of your problems also as you state
It then tells me it is doing a full blown install without prompting, a fraction of a second later it tells me installation complete and to exit setup. Nothing was obviously extracted or written to my linux partition.
Still could be a fat32 issue but if your network install efforts result in same problem then try editing the maketag file as shown above.
