Bekijk de volledige versie : ipkg with Koppel for WL500GP V2 (different from Oleg??)

I managed to install the firmware from


making my ONDA MH600HS connecting at full speed and I have also been successful adding a USB pendrive for swap and /opt filesystems. To install new packages I use the commands:

$ ipkg.sh update
$ ipkg.sh install <pkg>

They install correctly. Too bad that after installing a package I can't run the binaries. For example that's what I get with vnstat package:

$ ipkg.sh install vnstat
$ vnstat
-sh: vnstat: not found

But the file is there in /opt/bin/vnstat. The same with any other package.

In /etc/ipkg.conf I have:

$cat /etc/ipkg.conf
src wl500g http://wl500g.dyndns.org/ipkg
src optware http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/optware/oleg/cross/stable
dest root /

I made it working changing it to:

$cat /etc/ipkg.conf
src wl500g http://wl500g.dyndns.org/ipkg
src opt500 http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/optware/wl500g/cross/stable
# src optware http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/optware/oleg/cross/stable
dest root /

Looking around I've found another repository, but it seems the same of "opt500":

src unslug http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/unslung/wl500g

Since the Oleg repository is the most updated I'd like to use that instead of the old "wl500" one. Am I doing something wrong (but /etc/ipkg.conf was the default one after installation), or the Oleg repository is not compatible with Koppel/my router? Does anyone have any idea/suggestion?

Just follow wengis howto, I've installed samba, mc and some other stuff.
Everything works without any prob.

ipkg.sh is used only to install normal ipkg, or better ipkg-opt. If you look in http://wl500g.dyndns.org/ipkg/ you will see which packages are available (and usable) for ipkg.sh
Read (again) wengi's tutorial and especially this chapter (http://wl500g.info/showpost.php?p=60932&postcount=3).
