Hi,
I've been trying to get some results with different ideas and tried to set up the ipkg package management system and have struck an error.

When I tried to run the command:

ipkg.sh update <enter>

Downloading http://wl500g.dyndns.org/ipkg/Packages ...
wget: wl500g.dyndns.org: Unknown host
ipkg_download: ERROR: Failed to retrieve http://wl500g.dyndns.org/ipkg/Packages, returning
ipkg_update: Error downloading http://wl500g.dyndns.org/ipkg/Packages to /opt/lib/ipkg/lists/wl500g

Is the download page busted?

Can I alter a configuration file to grab it from another location... like
(http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/unslung/wl500g/)

Thanks,
Chris

Have a look here : http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/FAQ/Optware-uClibcBuild

Starting from
So what do I have to do to start using this new version of the uClibc library? answers all your questions I think.

Thanks for your input on that Reo.... it was useful but the same "host unknown" error occurred... which alerted me to the fact that the host name wasn't being resolved through a DNS. Via a forum search I found another post with the same issue and it was solved by placing "nameserver xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx[ips's dns]" in /tmp/resolv.conf so I did that and it worked for me.

Funny that there is no DNS field in the LAN setup pages of the WL500gP (1.9.2.7-7f)

Cheers,

Chris
