How to add another repository to PPM?
I want to add this repository to the puppy package manger in puppy lucid 520.
it says here file:///usr/local/petget/README-add-repo.htm how you are supposed to be able to add a repository but when I open the files that it says to edit inside puppy, they look totally different from what is described, then I have no idea how or where to add my custom repository to the files.
What would be great is if someone could add http://scxd.info/pub/ as a repository for me to the files and let me download them and replace my existing files with edited ones cause I have no idea how I could do it myself.
It's a very complex method that most probably don't understand how to accomplish even advanced user would have trouble with this method at least I think so I am barely a Linux novice.
Also I would suggest that in future versions they built into the PPM a non-manual method of adding repositories like one where the user can put the url into the program and have PPM update the files for them.
