See SlugOS5 for an outline of the major new features and changes for SlugOS 5.

Finding Wiki Information

Note the heading at the top of this page; this color-coded annotation will be used to help readers of the wiki to determine the specific firmware and version to which the article applies. Note that the absence of the color-coded annotation does not necessarily mean that the page in question does not apply; it merely means that nobody has (yet) taken the time to review and "certify" that the page is still pertinent and accurate for this SlugOS release.

Known Problems and Limitations

  • The opkg utility leaves empty directories behind in root's home directory. This is a nuisance, but the empty directories can be safely removed at any time with the "rmdir" command.

(This page will be added to as new problems and solutions come to light)
