I have an SL-5500 with Sharp 3.10 ROM.

Software installation is currently selectively broken.

I downloaded various versions of the IRK package & put them on my CF card. When I try to install them,none of the IRK's appear on the list of available packges,while plenty of other packages show up. When I try to install from the command line, I get the error

mkdir: Cannot create directory `//home/tmp/ipkg/irk-sl5600': Permission denied

The output of ipkg then suggests that I run "ipkg update" which then attempts to connect to http://www.gnurou.org/, which is a site definitely not associated with Sharp.

What the heck is going on? Has some package from gnurou.org replaced my ipkg app? :evil: This particular version of ipkg seems to be somewhat incompetent, if it is trying to create a directory with two prepended slashes.

Now here's the interesting thing... I had already installed and then uninstalled one of the IRK packages. I think my ipkg has been replaced or damaged somehow.

Any insight will be appreciated.
