TFTP on LinkStation
Has anyone managed to setup TFTP on their LS running OpenLink 052b
(MIPS)? I've been trying, but without luck, I've downloaded the
tftpd_0.17-12_mipsel.deb off the Debian website but dpkg refuses to
extract/install it. I found posts on the internet advising me to
create some directories for dpkg (which I have done) but now I am
root@STORE01:/var/lib/dpkg# dpkg -iu -F
Unpacking tftpd (from /mnt/hda/share/tftpd_0.17-12_mipsel.deb) ...
Setting up tftpd (0.17-12) ...
/var/lib/dpkg/info/tftpd.postinst: incorrect arguments:
dpkg: postrm failure.. set status to what?
Anyone any ideas? I suspect this might only be the start of my
problems, I'm having to override the dependency checker because to
get the install to work. Goodness only knows what I will have to
install after this to get it to work! The dependency checker
complains about modules which are already installed not existing so I
can't rely on it.
I hope all that makes sense?
Thanks for any help.
- Fixed it by using dpkg-dev to extract the .deb files and then cp'ed the
files from the extraction to the /etc /sbin and /lib directories.
There must be an easier way though!?
