I wanted to see if I could update the orinoco modules to see if this would fix the problem I have with my symbol spectrum24 wireless card and my ambicon wireless card which are not being recognised on the latest 3.5.3 hentges oz rom with cardfs.
I've tried just installing the orinoco modules from the command line but I keep getting errors, so I after reading through the forum for clues I've decided to set up a proper local package feed on my cf card.(formatted as fat16)

I created the following folder structure on my cf card : /mnt/cf/oz/feed
In it I have installed the following files from the internet feed:

Packages.filelist
Packages.gz
Packages.txt
orinoco-modules
orinoco-modules-cs

Ok I know I have not added everything else yet into my local feed in the cf card but wanted to see if the package manager or ipkg update would at least pick on the Packages list so I could see and re-install these two modules.

I then added the following entry into ipkg.conf

src cf_feed file:///media/cf/oz/feed

However everytime I try and update the ipkg list either using Aqpkg - Package manager or just by using ipkg update at the console I get the same error message:

ipkg: ///media/cf/oz/feed/Packages: No such file or directory
file_copy: error: failed to copy ///mnt/cf/oz/feed/Packages to/usr/lib/ipkg/lists/cf_feed

I am missing something obvious?

(I have also tried deleting the little opie_cf file from the cf card to make sure the package manager can see the files)

Help please!

Maybe the re-install of the orinico modules wont work but I do need to be able to set up a working local package feed!

This sounds to me like you've created a /mnt/cf on your card? If so you need to remove it and just make an /oz/feed directory on your CF-card to match the ipkg.cong file entry you've made.

Remove the .txt extension from your Packages file and you should be OK.
Change Packages.txt > Packages

Make sure you are using the Packages file from the feed you've copied the orinoco-modules and orinoco-modules-cs from?

Alternately you could do a search for how to build your own Package file. (there's a script somewhere?)

Change this:

src cf_feed file:///media/cf/oz/feed

to:

src/gz cf_feed file:///media/cf/oz/feed

As it's a Package.gz file, not a plain Package file.

The folder structure is in fact at the root of the cf card i.e. /oz/feed
(I quoted the full path /mnt/cf/oz/feed from filemanager just to show I could see the files in the z.)

I changed packages.text to just packages and updated the feeds.Success!!
I now have a local feed for oz!
Many thanks!

Just saw your post about src/gz - thanks I'll make this change also.
