Describe ManualPuppyInstall here.

to:

These are instructions for getting extra software and Puppy installed on your NSLU2 when it doesn't have an internet connection.

Manually getting the packages

On a machine that has net access. ie. your normal net connected home machine.

goto the http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/ipkg/ Ipkg Package site and get the following.

 openssl_0.9.7d-1_armeb.ipk 
 zlib_1.2.1-1_armeb.ipk 
 openssh_3.8p1-1_armeb.ipk
 puppy_1.2-1_armeb.ipk
 bash_2.05b-1_armeb.ipk

FTP Transfer to nlsu2.

Now from the nslu2 ftp to my local pc that i've downloaded the packages to. ie. ftp 192.168.1.100 (pc). You'll need to have some type of ftp package installed to serve the files. I was running the free alex small ftp package from my windows machine.

  • add properly formatted example of ftp transfer*

Or you can transfer the files directly from a windows pc.

First:

  In the webinterface, on the administration -system page, check the server name and workgroup of your slug. Change the workgroup to the same workgroup as your PC, and the server name to ie Slug.

Then:

  Open a windows explorer window
  Go to network environment - complete network - microsoft windows network - work group - server name (ie Slug) - DISK1?
  Copy the ipk files to DISK1?

Finally:

  Telnet to the slug
  type: cd /share/hdd/data/public
  type: ls, and you should see the transfered files

You can now continue with the manual install of the packages

Manual install of packages.

Now cut and paste each of in the following commands to install each of the packages.

 ipkg install openssl_0.9.7d-1_armeb.ipk
 ipkg install zlib_1.2.1-1_armeb.ipk
 ipkg install openssh_3.8p1-1_armeb.ipk     <- This command will take a while as it generates the keys.
 ipkg install puppy_1.2-1_armeb.ipk
 ipkg install bash_2.05b-1_armeb.ipk

If you'd like to run some perl scripts you can optionally install perl.

 ipkg install perl_5.6.1-1_armeb.ipk
