crontab



I am using slugosBE v5.3


Crontab has to be suid root in order to work.


However, it is just a link to busybox, and making busybox suid root does not seem like a good idea


So is there anyway to make it work (running as root fixes it, obviously, but ordinary users are supposed to be able to use it).

newgrp



I am using SlugosBE v 5.3, and I cannot find the newgrp program (nor the groups program for that matter). It does not seem to be in busybox, and I cannot identify any likely place in the opkg list.


Where is it (are they)?

rsync over SSH or NFS



I am using the nslu2 having installed Debian Wheezy on the attached USB hard disk. Everything works well. I use the nslu2 for data backup.

Can anyone help me to decide what kind of connection I should use.
I set up both SSH and NFS server on the nslu2. Both are working.

I supposed NFS to be faster but now I am not shure. It seems to me that rsync may be not faster over NFS than over SSH. I use the nslu2 only on my private network. Security aspects are not relevant.

Any statement is welcome.

Thanks in advance.
Ferdinand

Bug in File, file_5.12-1_armeb.ipk


I'm using http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/optware/oleg/cross/stable/ on
an Asus RT-AC66U and when trying to identify an unmounted file system with

$ file -Ls /dev/sdb1
/dev/sdb1: Linux rev 1.0 ext3 filesystem data, UUID=[...], volume name
"Optware" (needs journal recovery) (large files)
Segmentation fault

the point is not the seg fault, but the
fact that the first line of output is "mystery output" which cannot be
redirected or piped!

$ file -Ls /dev/sdb1 1> out
$ ls -l out
-rw-rw-rw-    1 admin    root             0 Jun 20 20:36 out

$ file -Ls /dev/sdb1 2> out
$ ls -l out
-rw-rw-rw-    1 admin    root            19 Jun 20 20:37 out
$ cat out
Segmentation fault

This is an issue because as far as i know that'd be the only reliable way
to find out the filesystem of an unmounted device (in this context, random
usb key/disk user will plug into router).

If 'file' worked properly it'd be easy to make a super fancy automated
pre-mount script to check any file system...

librsync outdated



The latest version of librsync in the syno-i686 feeds is librsync 0.9.7, which crashes when attempting to backup large files from a 64bit system to a 32bit system (i.e., the syno-i686).


This was fixed upstream (http://sourceforge.net/p/librsync/patches/8/) and in Debian (https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=355178) in 2006, but there hasn't been a release since then.


Is there anyone who can apply that patch to the optware feeds?

ffmpeg outdated



Hello,


ffmpeg is outdated in http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/ repo. Version there is ffmpeg_0.svn20080409-3_arm.ipk.

Is there anyone here who can upload the last version of the ipk package? It is also useful for me if you send it by email?

Thanks.

added ASUSTOR Optware target



Good day, I recently bought an ASUSTOR NAS and was missing Optware. So I got the optware building system and added asustor-i686 and asustor-x86_64 targets. I put it on github since that's the fastest way for me to 'backup' it (https://github.com/boretom/optware). Now I'd like to see if there's a way to get it added to the official repository. Right now the IPKs (1208 for i686|1151 for x86_64) can be found on optware.kupper.org for the two targets. Although only the x86_64 packages are referred to in the Optware package for ASUSTOR. For the i686 NAS I refer to the i686g25 target. The ASUSTOR NAS toolchain uses GCC 4.6.3/glibc-2.13 and I did compile it Ubuntu 12.04. To make it compile I had to patch quite a few packages (~80) and update (~25) some others. Some seem related to GCC > 4.2 and some because of 64-bit packages build. So, since I guess there's no chance that a nobody gets 80 patches approved which were build with a non-standard build-system I'd like to know what the next steps would be. * I realise now that you use Ubuntu 10.10 - silly me thought he might find the infos on the website. Would it help if I try to compile on Ubuntu 10.10 and see which patches were necessary? * Is it correct that no other target uses a GCC > 4.2? I don't have much knowledge of programming and gcc versions. But searching the internet for fixes of the compiling problems I got it seems that there were changes in GCC > 4.2 which made it necessary to add some headers. Like limits.h and stdlib.h to some packages. Have a good day and a good start into a brand new year! Thomas

Expired optware developer certificate



Hi,

I haven't been contributing to optware lately, since my old wd mybookworld nas died few years ago, and my new synology nas actually does what I need without (nearly) any tinkery.

I was thinking I could update optware boost package to a recent version, since the one in the repos is rather outdated, but couldn't do so, since my ssl certificate is expired.

Does anyone know whom I should contact on this? I used to write Brian in such cases, but, sadly, Brian had to retire from being the feed maintainer.

P.S. Happy winter holidays to everyone!

P.P.S. The nickname's alllexx

Best regards,

More recent build of hplip?



Hi,

Would it be possible to provide a more recent build of hplip?  

The currently available build is 3.11.3a-1, and with that I could successfully scan from my laptop with my HP PSC printer connected to my Synology NAS.   However, I had to replace that printer due to a malfunction, and now I have an HP PhotoSmart 5520, which is only supported from hplip 3.12.6 (latest version is 3.13.11).  

I tried simply copying over the models.dat file from the installation on my laptop, but it's apparently not as easy as that.  GIMP on my laptop then finds the scanner, but the scanning dialog complains about invalid field values.  

So I guess I really need a complete update of the hplip package.  The currently available package is 2.5 years old, so I suppose it's due for an update...

Thanks in advance,
Peter.

Retire from optware project



Hi all,


Because of lack of time, I've decided to retire from the optware project as the package manager. It has been a lot of fun creating and maintaining cross compilation packages. I get to know talented people, and have learned a great deal. IMHO, the optware cross compilation system is still the easiest to get into.

To the end users, there should be no change and no impact in the mean time.

If anyone is interested in continuing the optware support, please contact ka6sox in #nslu2-linux on freenode, or ka6sox-Re5JQEeQqe9fmgfxC/sS/w@public.gmane.org

Thank you!

haveged 1.7c-1



I did not find the official way to submit a package. If this is not it, please let me know what is.

I've compiled haveged to add more entropy to the kernel, see http://www.issihosts/haveged/
The ipkg is at http://goo.gl/lT0lw4

I am using http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/optware/ts509/cross/unstable but add it to any repository you see fit.
