Apparently, fixing ipkg fixes also qpkg.
By the way we can see in the log file of qpkg that it uses ipkg

indeed. i looked at the source code for qpkg and it turns out it really is just a nice GUI for ipkg written in QT 3.5

OK, I have redone the upgrade process. So far so good...
From a 5.4.7 install, I did:
- updated the kernel to 5.4.9's one
- upgraded with pdaxii13-custom
- put kk's feed in first
- ipkg update
- ipkg upgrade
ipkg upgrade stopped for the following packages: wireless and hostap because it shuts down CF services.
After ipkg upgrade was over, I downgraded:
abiword(don't like 2.4.6 bug with toolbars), perl(kk's package is bigger cause of header files), sdl, sdl-image, sdl-mixer, sdl-net(cause image was rotated by 90 degrees)
With that setup:
- the python settings app like lightnpower,py, ... were broken so I had to install manually pycairo and pygobject to have them work dispite some warnings in console.
- Gnumeric was broken so I had to install dbus-glib
- a problem with freetype not cleanly uninstalled(there were 2 freetype packages on my previous setup) so I reinstalled with kk's one
- archive 1.9.4(rox package) didn't work for me using roxlib2(I wanted to try it out) so I kept rox-lib 1.9.15

I still have the window popping when you eject a externel storage saying "You can safely remove the device now", That's cool.

Now I use mb-applet-powerctrl, it's really nice

I don't know why on my first attempt to upgrade I had so many problems, I probably meesed up with the order in ipkg.conf and with stopped installation due to wirelee and hostap package.

Great work kkazakov13. Now I still need to make pidgin and sylpheed(see new topic) work with gmail

EDIT: here is my ipkg status output

thanks for the info.

upgrading from a 5.4.9 image would be much easier also because the ipkg status file has been updated in 5.4.9 to reflect the actual package versions installed on the image so already upgraded/patched packages by the upgrade script will not be upgraded again by ipkg, ie hostap and wireless and some others...

i've hacked ipkg so now it checks /usr/lib/ipkg/ignored and if a package is listed in that file, then it will not be upgraded. the zip file contains the updated ipkg and a sample ignored file.

if you are upgrading from 5.4.7 rather than 5.4.9, then you probably want to add hostap-driver and wireless to ignored

The ignored file is a great idea.
That was exactly what I was looking for.

Is there a command that lists upgradable packages ?

found a bug with the implementation of the ignored feature and fixed it.
also added an extra option "upgrade-test" which basically simulates an upgrade but does not actually do it so you get to see which packages would had been upgraded if it were done for real...
