    I am currently using the newest version of dd-wrt mini v23 Final, on a WRT54G v2.2. I am having some problems with using Ipkg to install kannel on my ap. When I issue the command:
    "ipkg -d root install http://www.ohardt.com/computer/dev/openwrt/ipkg/kannel_1.4.0_mipsel.ipk"
    I end up with the following error messages:
    "Downloading http://www.ohardt.com/computer/dev/openwrt/ipkg/kannel_1.4.0_mipsel.ipk ...
    Connecting to www.ohardt.com[204.10.36.240]:80
    kannel_1.4.0_mipsel. 100% |***************************| 446 KB 00:00 ETA
    Done.
    tar: Invalid gzip magic
    tar: Short read
    ipkg_install_file: ERROR unpacking control.tar.gz from /jffs/tmp/ipkg/kannel_1.4.0_mipsel.ipk"

    This problem not only happens with kannel_1.4.0_mipsel.ipk but also http://www.ohardt.com/computer/dev/openwrt/ipkg/libxml2_2.6.20_mipsel.ipk and http://www.ohardt.com/computer/dev/openwrt/ipkg/kannel-wapbox_1.4.0_mipsel.ipk. When attempting to install any of these packages they both result in ipkg returning the lines
    "tar: Invalid gzip magic
    tar: Short read
    ipkg_install_file: ERROR unpacking control.tar.gz"

    Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.
