Dave G: two issues:

  • steps 3/4 and 5/6 seem identical to me. Is this an error?
  • why do things like ipkg install kernel-module-nls-base not work?? If your ipkg.conf is correct you should get the modules from the slugos-lag feed and the wget should not be needed.


You can do similiar with other modules, You can see the modules that are available here for Beta 3.10 Debian:


In order to install Samba and CIF modules to your device do the following:

Mount your externel hard disk and download the files onto it:

  1. mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/debinst
  2. mkdir /mnt/debinst/downloads
  3. cd /mnt/debinst/downloads
  4. wget http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/slugos-lag/cross/3.10-beta/kernel-image-2.6.16_2.6.16-r6.4_ixp4xxle.ipk

ipkg install kernel-image-2.6.16_2.6.16-r6.4_ixp4xxle.ipk

  1. wget http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/slugos-lag/cross/3.10-beta/kernel-module-nls-base_2.6.16-r6.4_ixp4xxle.ipk
  2. ipkg install kernel-module-nls-base_2.6.16-r6.4_ixp4xxle.ipk
  3. wget http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/slugos-lag/cross/3.10-beta/kernel-module-nls-base_2.6.16-r6.4_ixp4xxle.ipk
  4. ipkg install kernel-module-nls-base_2.6.16-r6.4_ixp4xxle.ipk
  5. wget http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/slugos-lag/cross/3.10-beta/kernel-module-cifs_2.6.16-r6.4_ixp4xxle.ipk
  6. ipkg install kernel-module-cifs_2.6.16-r6.4_ixp4xxle.ipk
  7. wget http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/slugos-lag/cross/3.10-beta/kernel-module-smbfs_2.6.16-r6.4_ixp4xxle.ipk
  8. ipkg install kernel-module-smbfs_2.6.16-r6.4_ixp4xxle.ipk
  9. reboot
  10. depmod -a

(You may have to modify the /etc/modutils/aliases file
