@Christoph-Zembrowski Yes, I believe that is one of the repositories that opkg consults.
Along with two others it is listed in the opkg configuration file /etc/opkg/distfeeds.conf
Once you have done a opkg update the command opkg list will list all packages available from all known feeds
Additionally, if you have obtained a ???.ipk file for a package and copied it to your Omega, you can install it using:
opkg install <path to .ipk file>
though you may possibly need to take care yourself of any other packages it may depend on
@Christoph-Zembrowski Thank you. Guess I just got unlucky using the Logitech livestream which doesn't work. There have been some mentioned herein that it may be due to the power it draws. And some promises to add more drivers. Without knowing for sure will now see about picking up one of the two you mention. Again Thank you.
Like Vinicius said, if you have no real reason to use something like C and can get away with python, if it is not crucial to have a fast initialization time, I would go with Python. Also, the difference between python 2 and 3 is minimal. Really 3 is just making things a little more consistent. Mostly if you change your print "ok" to print("ok") that should do it. I would go with python 2.
One suggestion. I have found that it is faster to use os.system() for some things rather than their python equivalents. Perhaps you could look into that?
Just read carefully, it says wait till the Omega led stops blinking. After downloading the Firmware it will be copied on the right place and the Omega is starting again. The led will switch of and switch on again and blink till firmware is ready in the Memory.
It could be that the Omega not gets online automatically after update. But in this case you can connect it with USB over serial. A how to, you find in omega.io/getstarted
With wifi you start the wifi Adapter and with wifisetup you can choose the right wifi network again. As you can store more than one wifi-network, it will be probably deactivated after update.
@Kit-Bishop After installing/configuring the SDK I now have the following problem:
(put it here for future reference)
vagrant@ubuntu-xenial64-server:~/openwrt/custom/luv$ WITH_LUA_ENGINE=Lua LUA_BUILD_TYPE=System WITH_SHARED_LIBUV=ON BUILD_MODULE=OFF BUILD_SHARED_LIBS=ON STAGING_DIR=/home/vagrant/openwrt/sdk/OpenWrt-SDK-ar71xx-generic_gcc-4.8-linaro_uClibc-0.9.33.2.Linux-x86_64/staging_dir make

CMake Error: The following variables are used in this project, but they are set to NOTFOUND.
Please set them or make sure they are set and tested correctly in the CMake files:
linked by target "luv" in directory /home/vagrant/openwrt/custom/luv

Makefile:37: recipe for target 'build/Makefile' failed
make: *** [build/Makefile] Error 1
I am sure it is just setting those missing variables, but I have no clue where to find them from.
I changed the cmake file into:
# this one is important
#this one not so much
# specify the cross compiler
# where is the target environment
# search for programs in the build host directories
# for libraries and headers in the target directories
First of all, check if your Omega is sitting correct in the expansion-dock. The pins should not be visible anymore if you press the omega on the Dock?!

After a few failed attempts to connect and update, I cant see the wifi any more and the led on the onion omega is not flashing.
To be able to help and give you advice we need more specific information. You have to look that you can connect over USB-serial cable and get more information from the boot process of the Omega. How to do so you find in onion.io/getstarted
