Full Version: Installing ipks to SD from command line
OESF Portables Forum > General Forums > General Discussion

I had to reflash my NAND backup to my Z, now have a ton of apps to reinstall again, would take hours to do it through the GUI ipk install.

I thought you install ipks from the command line by something like
ipkg -d /mnt/card/ install whatever.ipk
I tried this, however it created all the home, usr, etc directories on the SD's root.

Which wouldn't be the worst thing. However when I open the GUI ipkg manager to uninstall the ipks, their not there.

So what is wrong? Should I specify something like
ipkg -d /mnt/card/QtPalmtop/ whatever.ipk
Will this enable me to uninstall the packages?

Can this kind of install be done properly from the command prompt at all?

Which ROM?

What you did should work fine (on OZ for example), then use ipkg-link to link it to root.

ipkg remove <package_name>

Should get rid
