open a terminal and type ipkg install /mnt/cf/<your-package>.ip
Thanks. I thought that the Package Manager would see the files in the cf card (this happened in version 3.3.5, but not now). Is this supposed to be like this?
You must make sure your Z networking is fully set up. Make sure the Z has a nameserver configured and that NAT or MASQ, etc. is set up on the server/router box. You can test this; if you can ping a site my name from the Z console it should be working.
I am afraid that I have not managed to sort this out, so I am trying to download the files and install them from the cf card.
I set the "masq" option in the firewall configuration, but I am not sure what to do next.
Is the nameserver the ip address of my desktop?
Is there anybody with SuSE 9.1 to help on how to connect to the internet with the Z through USB? (so far I can use ssh and QTopia Desktop, so the connection between the Z and the desktop works OK. My problem is perhaps the firewall)
I personnaly made a mirror of the feeds, put them on a CF card and then add the following lines into /etc/ipkg.conf :
src CF_feed file:///mnt/cf/oz/feed
src CF_upgrades file:///mnt/cf/oz/upgrades
then you have two choices :
* from the command-line :
$ ipkg update
$ ipkg upgrade
$ ipkg install <whatever_package_you_want>
* from GUI :
1/ install opie-aqpkg
2/ from the menu -> update lists
