0.1.9 b149 is pretty old. I am one behind at b156, but it has been stable with some bugs worked out. Maybe download and install it, as a number of other packages have been upgraded since the release of b149. Or even to b157. Just a thought.
@Chuck-Malloch There is no apt-get, you use opkg. Specifically, you need to enable the LEDE-repos in /etc/opkg/distfeeds.conf, then call opkg update and opkg install subversion or whatever -- subversion is only available in the LEDE-repos for now.
@patrick-gunderson I am trying to build a simple IoT project - and got stuck because the SerialPort module does NOT have a MIPS version. I am trying to get setup to attempt building it BUT it won't compile/build - get to the same stage as you are. Any instructions on how to get gcc / node-gyp installed on the Omega2?
There is a package called "node" instead of "nodejs" in LEDE's official package-repos. The nodejs-package in Onion-repos is version 4.3, whereas node-package in LEDE-repos is 4.4.5, and the package in LEDE-repos does seem to include npm.
@Guest In the ping command, "ping -c 1 -W 1 downloads.openwrt.org" there are the two parameters - c1 and W1. The number after the "c" is the amount of pings sent and the number after the "W" is the timeout in seconds.
In this case, I have asked for one ping and to wait 1 second for the reply.
