Thread: ipkg update site gone missing?

  1. #1

    ipkg update site gone missing?

    i have recently had to reinstall & reconfigure my wl-hdd, i've started with a new HDD and i have been following the usual instructions here http://wlhdd.co.uk/wiki/Ipkg using oleg 1.9.2.7-9

    the problem i am having is that the nslu2 "unslung" packages seem to have gone missing http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/unslung/wl500g/ the page returns a 404 error.

    if i simply point ipkg at an alternative site (where ipkg was initially installed from) http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/op.../cross/stable/ everything seems to work fine but installed packages are unusable.

    below is the first example

    Code:
    [admin@wl-hdd root]$ ipkg update
    Downloading http://wl500g.dyndns.org/ipkg/Packages
    Updated list of available packages in /opt/lib/ipkg/lists/wl500g
    Downloading http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/unslung/wl500g/Packages
    wget: server returned error 404: HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found
    An error ocurred, return value: 1.
    Collected errors:
    ipkg_download: ERROR: Command failed with return value 1: `wget --passive-ftp    -q -P /tmp/ipkg-9ClgHX http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/unslung/wl500g/Packages'
    here is the example with the new ipkg directory


    Code:
    [admin@wl-hdd etc]$ ipkg update
    Downloading http://wl500g.dyndns.org/ipkg/Packages
    Updated list of available packages in /opt/lib/ipkg/lists/wl500g

    http://wl500g.info/showthread.php?t=10307

    explains the new setup and even though it was posted in the wl-500g part of the forum the instructions were done on a wl-hdd

    Did you ever resolve this? I don't fancy rebuilding my WL-HDD from scratch again!
