    Install python; no success?!

    After I managed to install libstdc++ (5.0.5) on my wl500g, I'm now in the process to install python on it. I have tried the obligatory ipkg install python and this starts downloading, but actually it makes the router hang at some point (no telnet connection possible anymore, no access to the web or to the internal wl500g admin-pages). So after resetting the router several times, I decided to try to manually download the python installationfile 'python_2.4.2-3_mipsel.ipk' to the router first and try to install from that file.

    But when I open, all I find is a bz2-compressed file containing all files and directories for python, but I cannot find any python_2.4.2-3_mipsel.ipk on the net?

    How does this work?

    The ipk-file was available for download at:

    12 Mb!!?

    py-cherrytemplate py-clips py-curl py-django py-docutils py-elementtree py-formencode py-gd
    py-json py-kid py-mercurial py-moin py-mssql py-mx-base py-mysql py-nose py-paste py-pastescript
    py-pil py-protocols py-psycopg py-pygresql py-rdiff-backup py-roundup py-ruledispatch py-scgi
