ipkg not working
- I've just unslung my new slug to 3.18-beta. A couple of things
came up :
1. I bought an external hard drive, and it turned out to have
the Genesys chip in it. But to my surprise, it worked fine-
both with 3.18-beta (which is reasonable, since I think it has
the fix) but also on the original V2.3R24. I tested it by
writing, copying and comparing some 4MB files. Is this enough
to show up problems ?
2. ipkg wouldn't work - it had a problem that looks like FAQ 20.
But it wasn't the DNS - it was an http proxy. It's a non-transparent
proxy and I got around it by setting the http_proxy environment
variable, testing it by ensuring that wget worked. But there
might be a better way to fix this : on my Debian system I've got
a proxy named in /etc/apt/apt.conf.
3. It's taken me a while to read my way around the wiki and I've
still only got a hazy idea what I'm doing .. but it was pretty
easy to get going and the instructions are very helpful.
Great work, guys !

Both curl and wget support proxy and ipkg has this too: See
http://www.comp.lancs.ac.uk/~fittond/linuxonipaq.html , section "Configuring
IPKG and WGET to use a proxy/firewall"
This possibility should definitely go into and expanded answer to FAQ #20.
Will you do it?
