I've modified the /etc/ipkg.conf file to point to the zug x11 feed (www.zaurususergroup.com/x11feed/). One thing to note - I don't think you can change the name of the feed (ie. cacko-unstable). I tried changing it to something else (zug-unstable) but the package manager wouldn't build the available list.

Not a big deal at all, as I don't care what the name is. It's nice to be able to install an app (xmms for example) and have the package manager install the necessary dependencies.

This is very nice... very nice indeed!

How do you pick a file from the internet feed?

I tried, but the only option for me is
- put the cf card on the laptop
- download the ipk
- move the cf to sl860
- cp the ipk to /home/temp
- remove the cf
- put the dlink 660 (for connecting to internet)
- install the ipk and let the qpackager care account of the libraries

I think it should have a more simple system...

you can also use wget (btw, ipkg uses it automaticaly) to retrive packages of the feed.
