Ok, I have looked and searched but I cannot find how to set the package manager to install apps on a SD card (ext2 formatted) instead of root.
Any ideas ?

TIA

ipkg -d sd package_name.ipk

is an option. I've not used the GUI package manger for a while, but the drop down list of destinations always used to sit in the top right hand corner.

P.S. If these don't work, look in /etc/ipkg.conf and check the 'dest' lines (make sure there is a 'dest sd /mnt/card' (hopefully that's the right way round ;-))

I remember this as being an issue too.
I think the deal is that the 1st dest listed in /etc/ipkg.conf is the default and that is where the gui package manager will install stuff.
edit your ipkg.conf file and make sure your dest entries are :
dest sd /mnt/card
dest root /
That SHOULD do it.

Although the first one may be the default, if the others are listed then they should be available (via the drop down list - assuming it's still there, I'll have to check later on).

Either way installing from the command line will work.
