Thread: i can't even install ipkg....so bad..

  1. #1

    Unhappy i can't even install ipkg....so bad..

    i got a wl500gp yesterday.of course,i reflashed it to oleg's firmware 1.9.2.7-7g.then i wanted to add some softs.then the problem came.

    i used the guide http://www.wl500g.info/showthread.php?t=5909 (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 "ipkg.sh update" and cannot access wl500g.dyndns.org.then i looked for other web to instead for it.http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/unslung/wl500g/ but its list doesn't contain ipkg.so i use http://downloads.openwrt.org/whiterussian/packages/ .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 http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/op...g/cross/stable
    dest /opt/ /

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