Tried the opie image again.

Copied all the packages (well most) to my CF card, when I found one that worked, including the Package files etc.

Added lines to ipkg.conf of the type

src src_name /directory/of/packages

tried to update package lists.

Would not work, tried to wget the files.

Tried to local install with:

ipkg install -d root packagename.ipk

Told me it could not find the package.

What am I doing wrong. The simpad does not have a net connection. I just want to play scummvm on it.

Do:

src src_name file:///directory/of/packages

Then run 'ipkg update' to update the list of files, then try installing things.
