Ipkg Question

    I am a relative novice in Linux. I have flashed Unslung 5.5 beta and can telnet into the slug as root. I am a little confused about why I have to have the external drive disconnected to log in as root and then reconnect it, but I will try to solve that later.

    This is my problem. I ran Unsling and can see the copied files on my external disk with the web interface, but I cannot find ipkg on the slug. I can see it in the backup files. All I have on the slug is a /etc/ipkg directory containing four .conf files (I do not have a ipkg.conf file).

    What do I have to do to get the ipkg executable? Was it there before running Unsling? Do I run it from the external disk?

    I don't know much about linux, but it could be in another dir. I do know that after you install the update, you run unsling, then sync and then reboot, then you do ipkg update and then install what you want. I would recommendyour first install to be nano, and consider openssh for a secure and permanently enabled method of connecting.
