Hi Ulrich,

Thank you for your report.
This sounds unfortunate :) 

It seems you have three different problems.

About fdisk: could you tell more about the problem? What version of fdisk works 
correctly for you?

About missing versions: could you please locate the *.lsm file of one of the 
"unknown version" packages and send it to me? (it is in %FREEDOS%\APPINFO) Are 
you testing using the latest available version of FDNPKG?
As a temporary workaround: does removing/reinstalling a package make its 
version to be displayed fine by fdnpkg?

About fdnpkg freezing: how could I reproduce this problem exactly? Should it be 
enough to just install freedos 1.1 on virtualbox, without any special 
configuration, and boot the latest version of all_cd.iso on top of it? What 
network card model are you simulating? (and what packet driver handles it?)
