Preamble for Unslung

If you are using Unslung, before attempting to run ipkg, install or use a package, or update the list of packages, make sure that you have installed a hard drive or memory stick and "unslung" to it. Failure to do so may fill your NSLU2's internal Flash RAM with too much data and not allow it to reboot. To recover, follow the Recover From A Bad Flash process.

Changed lines 13-32 from:

In general, packages are commonly-available software programs that we have simply ported to the NSLU2. The effort to do this work is provided by the volunteer NSLU2 Linux community.

If you have a question on how to use a particular package, please use Google or something to search for the general documentation about the package before asking questions that are not specific to the NSLU2 port of the package. For example, Google "man tar" for information on how to use the "tar" application.

When using Unslung, look under /opt for the corresponding files for a particular package.

First Steps

  1. Make sure you've unslung to an external hard drive or USB memory stick.
  2. Make sure you have setup a gateway and a DNS server for the NSLU2 under Administration/LAN/.
  3. ipkg update
  4. ipkg install unslung-feeds
  5. ipkg update

If you're having problems at this stage connecting with ipkg, see this troubleshooting FAQ.

If you have a question on how to use a particular package, please use Google or something to search for the general documentation about the package before asking questions that are not specific to the platform's port of the package. For example, Google "man tar" for information on how to use the "tar" application.

Preamble for OptWare

The OptWare package system was originally created to accompany the Unslung firmware for the NSLU2 (originally the packages were also called Unslung packages). It has since been expanded to cover a variety of other platforms, however much of the documentation hasn't been updated so you may still see references to Unslung and the NSLU2 when the information also applies to other platforms.

to:

Optware Introduction

For a detailed description of Optware's history and current state, see the Optware Home Page.

For information on installing Optware on the NSLU2, see the Slug Install page.

Note about the OptWare documentation

Much of the documentation hasn't been updated to remove NSLU2 references, so you may still see references to Unslung and the NSLU2 when the information also applies to other platforms. Don't panic.

What are Packages?

In general, packages are commonly-available software programs that we have simply ported to the NSLU2. The effort to do this work is provided by the volunteer NSLU2 Linux community.

If you have a question on how to use a particular package, please use Google or something to search for the general documentation about the package before asking questions that are not specific to the NSLU2 port of the package. For example, Google "man tar" for information on how to use the "tar" application.

When using Unslung, look under /opt for the corresponding files for a particular package.

Found A Bug?

Please search the wiki? to see if your problem is a known problem with a workaround.

In the chance that the problem might be fixed with the help of the package maintainer, come to the IRC channel and politely ask for help. You can also Browse the IRC Logs.

The easiest way to find a maintainer is to look at the cvs log - "cvs log make/foo.mk" - for package foo. This will tell you who originally checked in the package and who has modified it since. The usernames in the cvs log are @users.sourceforge.net addresses.
