    Unhappy i can't even install bad..

    i got a wl500gp yesterday.of course,i reflashed it to oleg's firmware i wanted to add some softs.then the problem came.

    i used the guide (thanks to marcnesium).then i followed the tourists.i used a 2GB flash stick and formatted it to ext3 and linux swap successfully.

    At last,i input " update" and cannot access i looked for other web to instead for it. but its list doesn't contain i use .first the error is "cannot find //opt/tmp/ipkg..." then i edit the ipkg.conf.i modied it to "dest root /opt" and i can install ipkg.but there's a error "./bin/ipkg read only filesystem"

    I think you shouldn't try to install openwrt packages on the Oleg's fw. They are incompatible fws. The correct content of ipkg.conf for Oleg's is:

    src/gz optware
    dest /opt/ /

    Then install ipkg-opt and uclibc-opt . The rest should be OK.
