Python install not working

  • Hi,

    I am having problems with the openwrt opkg site where bad checksums are appearing. This makes installs very flakey. is anybody else experiencing problems with opkg?

    I haven't in the past and I have used two different Omega's..

    Does anybody have the same problem? How can this be fixed? Is there a mirror site?

    The error is right at the bottom of this post and you can see that I have issued an opkg update at the start.

    Another odd thing is that I had to install PHP to get over a dependency problem. Python stopped when it was looking for libbz2...

  • OK - I have fixed this...

    Odd though this may seem, I had someone else do a sanity check on my install (thanks..) and they did not have any problems at all..!

    This led me to believe that the problem was local, but I had used two different Omega's. The problem was local. I happened to notice that my PC was constantly downloading at about 1 or 2 mb/s so I disabled the photo sync in the ICloud settings on the PC. Now it works.

    Strange but true - wifi interference. But I thought TCP was an end to end connection...

    Curiouser and curiouser.. šŸ˜•

  • With other unrelated hardware, I think I experienced WiFi failures once or twice when a cellular phone (it's WiFi off) was in use. They are not on the same frequencies, but I suspect a bad WiFi frequency filter on the WiFi equipment as the culprit. Would that make any sense?
