USB Setup Issues

  • Good day,
    I am having issues with setting up my Omega2+. I plugged in a USB drive and am trying to set it up for booting from external storage (https://docs.onion.io/omega2-docs/boot-from-external-storage.html).

    Here is what I am seeing:

    • opkg update failed to download any of the packages
    • e2fsprogs is an unknown package

    I posted the above in a ticket with freshdesk and Kyle Xu replied stating that the above package is not in the repo and to try posting in the community for assistance.

    My end game is to set up a web server. I know I need to set up a USB drive and install Apache, MySQL and PSP (https://wiki.onion.io/Tutorials/How-To-Install-LAMP-Stack-on-the-Omega).

    Can anyone out there help me with setting this rig up? I have the latest firmware.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Are you sure you have an internet connection?
    What does your /etc/opkg/distfeeds.conf show?

    I have mine set up like the following, making it easy for me to swap between the Onion packages and the existing LEDE packages.

    # LEDE Project Packages - has lots of extras.
    # src/gz reboot_base http://downloads.lede-project.org/snapshots/packages/mipsel_24kc/base
    # src/gz reboot_luci http://downloads.lede-project.org/snapshots/packages/mipsel_24kc/luci
    # src/gz reboot_packages http://downloads.lede-project.org/snapshots/packages/mipsel_24kc/packages
    # src/gz reboot_routing http://downloads.lede-project.org/snapshots/packages/mipsel_24kc/routing
    ## src/gz reboot_telephony http://downloads.lede-project.org/snapshots/packages/mipsel_24kc/telephony
    # Official Onion Omega 2+ Packages.
    src/gz omega2_core http://repo.onion.io/omega2/packages/core
    src/gz omega2_base http://repo.onion.io/omega2/packages/base
    src/gz omega2_packages http://repo.onion.io/omega2/packages/packages
    src/gz omega2_onion http://repo.onion.io/omega2/packages/onion

    Do the update with the only the Onion packages uncommented and then run the following and make sure you can see the result. It should come back with the following:

    opkg list | grep e2fsprogs
    e2fsprogs - 1.43.3-2 - This package contains essential ext2 filesystem utilities which consists of e2fsck, mke2fs and most of the other core ext2 filesystem utilities.
