Python install not working
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..
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?
