Love the firmware, but need basic help with this (adding a package related)

    Hi all

    I really love the firmware, but one thing that has me puzzled is lack of information on how to install .ipk files!

    I came from firmwares like DD-WRT and OpenWRT where adding new packages was a snap..

    I desperately need to a copy of atftpd on the router and would really appreciate any help!

    http://downloads.openwrt.org/backports/rc4/atftpd_0.7-1_mipsel.ipk
    http://downloads.openwrt.org/whiterussian/packages/libreadline_5.0-1_mipsel.ipk
    http://downloads.openwrt.org/whiterussian/packages/libpcre_5.0-3_mipsel.ipk


    Using those 3 links I've installed atftpd on pretty much any firmware that has a working ipkg_install command. (First link is atftpd, the second 2 are its dependancies) ..Tomato is the first one ever to complain about missing the ipkg .conf file and what not

    I'm sure this is a very easy fix and I just do not know how to approach it


    Thanks alot all :)

    Tomato doesn't have ipkg.

    try to unzip packages link them while they are on your CIFS.
    custom config path is also an option ...
