Thread: Which IPKG repository for the WL-HDD?

    Which IPKG repository for the WL-HDD?

    Hi all,

    while digging around here at the forum about IPKG repositories i asked myself which ipkg-repositories are usable for the WL-HDD?
    Can i use all the packages made for the wl500g for the WL-HDD (with Oleg's firmware installed)?

    What are the differences of the repositoris that can be found at http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds?

    Very confusing

    Regards, Thorsten

    use the following:
    Code:
    [admin@blechbuechse root]$ cat /opt/etc/ipkg.conf
    src/gz optware http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/op...g/cross/stable
    dest /opt/ /
    native is empty anyway...

    Hi wengi,

    thanks for the reply.

    What is the difference between the "oleg"-tree and e.g. the "wl500g"-tree?

    If i install IPKG for the first time according to the HOW-TO at the forum, the packages are fetched from http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/unslung/wl500g/ by default. Out of this repository i installed screen, nano and openssl. Do i have to uninstall and reinstall them from the "oleg"-tree?

    Thanks in advance,

    Thorsten

    They are built with different libraries. optware/oleg is newer and has more packages. In the 8th version of the Oleg's firmware this will be the default repository. Yes, it is better to reinstall everything.

    Done successfully.

    Thanks for the explanation.

    A word @wengi and the How-To:

    Section 6 (mc):
    - /etc/profile is a volatile file at my WL-HDD (Oleg-FW 1.9.2.7-7c) which can't be saved by 'flashfs save'. My workaround (after reading linux-forums for hours and hours) was to create a file named '.profile' at root's home dir /usr/local/root with the suggested lines nescessary for running mc.
    BTW: here you can put further aliases e.g.
    Code:
    alias ll="ls -la"
    Don't forget to make this file non-volatile with
    Code:
    flashfs save && flashfs commit && flashfs enable
    as usual...

    Regards, Thorsten

    *Corrected '.profiles' to '.profile'. Thanks to al37919 for the hint...

    You probably mean /usr/local/root/.profile
    BTW, you can save also /etc/profile to flash.
    Just edit /etc/profile and afterwards do the following:
    PHP Code:
    cat >> /usr/local/.files << EOF
    /etc/profile
    EOF
    flashfs save 
    && flashfs commit && flashfs enable && reboot 
    after reboot your changes will be kept. /usr/local/.files is the list of additional files which are saved in the flashfs.

    You are right. This should have been /opt/etc/profile. I changed it.
    Thanks
