Maybe this is a newbie issue so sorry about that beforehand. I just installed the pdaxrom 1.05 and am trying to install the ipk's from the pdaxrom.org stable feed. I have a problem with the ipk's downloaded from the feed which appears to be incompatible with the ipkg manager which comes with the 1.05 rom. ipkg installing them gives the following error message:
zcat: 'package-name'.ipk: not in gzip format
tar: ./control.tar.gz: Not found in archive
As far as i understand there are several ipk formats being used. The ones from the feed all start with the
lines whereas the ones that do install (such as the purported ZUG pdaxrom app mirror tar) do not have those lines. According to some searching there are differences in the way the packages are gzipped and tarred or arred. Right now I am trying to repackage the downloaded ipk's with ipkg-build but I have the nagging suspicion there must be faster ways to install the packages from the pdaxrom feed.
Isn't it strange that the ipk's from the feed don't readily install on the rom image from the same site, or am I doing something horribly wrong?
Thanks in advance for any clues, and thank you pdaxrom guys for an amazing project,
