i find that warning:
You can upgrade all of your installed packages to latest version: ipkg upgrade WARNING! Only run "ipkg upgrade" when when opie is not running.

how can i upgrade when opie is not running? And then why package manager contains upgrade function? smile.gif

Do you have enough space on root?

It may not actually be a problem if the /usr/share directory exists.

Run '/etc/init.d/opie stop' (iirc), then 'ipkg upgrade' from the command line.

I'd recommend against ever using 'ipkg upgrade' to tell the truth, especially if you have, as a guess, less than half of your root fs free (due to the way jffs2 reclaims memory).

try installing from the command line. I had the same problem and when I install fro the command line it works fine. here's how you do it.

ipkg update
ipkg install <package name> -d home
ipkg-link add <package name>

the first line updates the package lists from the feed.
<package name> is the name of the package you want to install ie: opie-remote
the -d home will install the package to home, other alternatives are root (very small so it is not recommended to install packages here) and card which is your SD card
ipkg-link add adds the necessary links.
