Wink Netpkg

Hello. The installation of Zenwalk on my PC is successful. By menu / system I don't have 'netpkg'! In a terminal if I type 'netpkg' I get the message 'bye'. What should I do ?
I am French and I use Google to translate into English !
I found a solution. I added my logon in the sudoers file. In a terminal netpkg works with the command sudo netpkg. I chose the sources (netpkg -es) then an upgrade-all and a big update was done. But I don't have a graphical netpkg through the system menu. Xdialog is well installed.

Using serviceconfig I get this message "(Xdialog: 18468): Pango-WARNING **: 19: 40: 00.812: Invalid UTF-8 string passed to pango_layout_set_text ()".
Maybe it's this error message that explains that graphical netpkg could not be found in my installation.

Hi, can't reproduce the pango thing with serviceconfig here :/

for information : there's no GUI for netpkg anymore, no animated ponies either

normally you'll find it simpler and faster in CLI...

Now, I'm curious. There were animated ponies in netpkg GUI? Something like this?
