Fun checking the openwrt download repository
The repository seems to be down at the moment and if you do an update, it can wait forever to come back on its own.... So, I wrote a fun script to check first:
root@Omega-1F15:/usr/brian# cat ping_opkg
ping -c 1 -W 1 downloads.openwrt.org > /dev/null
Save the file as ping_opkg, and make it executable with:
chmod 777 ping_opkg
run like this:
It will either do the update or say, "Noooo!" if it can't and doesn't gang the system :-)
@TheLion How would you have it test via time limit? Thanks for the code.
@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.
