NSLU2-Linux
view · edit · print · history

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.

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.
