using opkg



  • I tried updating opkg.
    This is the ouput. What does that error mean?

    root@Omega-08ED:/# opkg update
    Downloading http://downloads.openwrt.org/chaos_calmer/15.05/ar71xx/generic/packages/base/Packages.gz.

  • From the wget man page exit status 8 is

    Server issued an error response.

    EDIT: You repo string is wrong there is no /generic/packages/onion path on downloads.openwrt.org. it is just generic/packages/packages.

    Good luck.

    @Luis-Johannes-Schubert @T-NT There seems to be some issue with OpenWRT's repos. We'll have our own repo soon, so this problem should be fixed. But for now, just do the following:

    vi /etc/opkg.conf
    

    Remove the last line because there is an issue with checking the signatures, and save the file.

    opkg update
    


  • I'm still getting this error!

    Collected errors: * opkg_download: Failed to download http://downloads.openwrt.org/chaos_calmer/15.05/ar71xx/generic/packages/onion/Packages.gz, wget returned 8.

    any fixes yet? I'd like to start playing with my new "toy" :)



  • Turns out mine shipped with old firmware and an update is what I needed.

    Hopefully you guys get on top of creating more detailed tutorials and getting started guides.

    @Marc-R Whoops, looks like we left out the steps to update the firmware in the Get Started guide when we migrated it to the wiki.

    Sorry bout that, It's updated now!



  • @Boken-Lin after 'vi /etc/opkg.conf' I get '-ash: /bin/vi: Exec format error'
