Can't install any packages at all using opkg install on Onion Omega2 Pro [RESOLVED]
@Yvan-Gagnon Edit the '/etc/opkg/distfeeds.conf' file with vi and enable (uncommment) the
'... openwrt.org/releases/18.06-SNAPSHOT/packages/mipsel_24kc/packages' line.
opkg list | grep -i <some_keyword>
Unfortunately I didn't find anything about that blink-library.
Actually -- the correct spelling is "blynk-library", and I wasn't able to locate the package either. So I guess these articles must be completely wrong or outdated then?
Thank you by the way. I has already figured out how to uncomment those lines in my distfeeds.conf file and to install nano. But I just now learned that the npm package is named "node-npm" and I'm installing it as we speak.
To chime in: see our updated Installing and Using NodeJS documentation article for instructions on installing Node and npm v8.10
@Yvan-Gagnon can you please add [resolved] to the post title?
for anybody looking for the solution to installing
blynk-library, the instructions in the blog post have been updated.
as per this other post on the subject.
In a nutshell,
blynk-librarycan now be installed using npm.
@Lazar-Demin I just tried installing node following the same (updated) directions on a brand new onion 2+ and got the same error,
root@Omega-63D5:~# opkg install node
Unknown package 'node'.
- opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package node.
Would you try this?
opkg install nodejs
opkg install npm
@davidsi I get the same error
New to the forum and encountered the same. I was trying to install NodeJS. Thanks to @György-Farkas, got it going with:
opkg install node-npm
A helpful tip: you can use
opkgto list out all of the packages available to install. Then you can use
grepto search the list for packages you're interested in.
More on this under the Finding packages to install heading here: http://docs.onion.io/omega2-docs/using-opkg.html#how-to-use-the-package-manager

3 easy steps to find if your package is available :
- Edit /etc/opkg/distfeeds.conf and uncomment line 2 and 5
- opkg update
- opkg list | grep -i <package name>
Where <package name> is the minimum string to identify the package, for instance to find sqlite packages use opkg list | grep -i sqlite results are:
libsqlite3 - 3310100-1
sqlite3-cli - 3310100-1
