After being pointed to a feed for the wdtv at nslu2-linux.org by an avsforums member I set out to fully porting it to the wdtv. Didn’t require much on my part except assembling a few key prerequisite packages and patching several files in ipkg.
/opt/etc/ipkg.conf was changed to contain:
### wdtv optware feed ###
src/gz wdtv http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/optware/wdtv/cross/unstable/
dest root /
# Proxy support:
#option http_proxy http://localhost:5865
#option ftp_proxy http://proxy.tld:3128
After the patching a few things were required to make things go smoothly. prerequisite packages that come preinstalled are:
- ipkg-opt [ obviously: ) ]
libnsl is not necessary, but perl depends on it without listing it as a dependency so I’ve included it to keep anyone from going crazy. libnsl_0.9.28-4_mipsel.ipk also required patching to create a symlink in /opt/lib from:
libnsl.so.0 -> libnsl-0.9.28.so
Easy as Π
I’ve installed and tested perl & python and they work plus strace, tcpdump, : D…just not that not many python/perl programs will work without additional libraries & modules that are not provided by optwares wdtv feed.
My next task is converting all of the architecture independent perl & python modules to ipk to rectify this, I’ll whip up a script to do it soon…
