Answer to some questions!

  1. get yourself connected to the Pogoplug via SSH, if you don’t know what SSH is stop now!!!
  2. ‘cd /’
  3. run ‘flash_eraseall -j /dev/mtd3′ this erases and formats the block to jffs2 structure
  4. ‘mkdir /opt’
  5. ‘mount /dev/mtdblock3 /opt’
  6. ‘wget http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/optware/cs08q1armel/cross/stable/ipkg-opt_0.99.163-10_arm.ipk‘ current version as of 2012/01/20
  7. ‘tar xvzf ipkg-opt_0.99.163-10_arm.ipk’
  8. ‘tar xvzf data.tar.gz’ this should place all the items in the /opt directory
  9. now you need to clean up ‘rm *.ipk’ and ‘rm *.gz’
  10. ‘echo ‘src cross http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/optware/cs08q1armel/cross/stable’ >> ipkg.conf’
  11. ‘PATH=$PATH:/opt/bin:opt/sbin’
  12. ‘ipkg install Haserl’
  13. so now you need to find out where the PogoPlug has mounted your external harddrive, try /tmp/.ceadmin/sda ?

More later :)
