Re: [nslu2-linux] Installing Apache
- Does Debian have an "ipkg" command?
I wonder if you, perhaps, have also created a *new* hybrid installation:
"unDebianSlugslung"? "DebianUnslung"? :-)
If you installed overtop of the Unslung distribution, you may well have all
manner of strangeness; there is no defined "upgrade" path from Unslung to
any other distribution (including OpenSlug). What you end up with is pretty

Subject: [nslu2-linux] Installing Apache
I have just installed DebianSlug 3.10 (Upgrading from UnSlung 5...) -
so far so good.
However I cant find apache, to install it.
I've run ipkg update, then ipkg install apache, but I get:
Nothing to be done
An error ocurred, return value: 4.
Cannot find package apache.
Check the spelling or perhaps run 'ipkg update'
The wiki is a little contradictory - should I be using ipkg, or
apt-get (apt-get is not installed).

and dpkg. The README with the installer points to the wiki here:
Near the bottom of the page, it says that packages are downloaded
using the same utility as Unslung - ipkg
With Unslung, I had to ipkg install unslung-feeds ; ipkg update to get
this list of feeds up-to-date.
The Debian install already has an extensive list of available
packages, which does include unslung-feeds, but nothing named
debian-feeds, or slugos-le-feeds or similar. There's no apache package
in this list either.
I tried installing unslung-feeds, but that failed.
So, without it being in the ipkg feed, and without having apt-get and
dpkg installed, how do I proceed?
(BTW, the install was done by booting without the harddrive attached.
Using the web pages to put it into 'Upgrade mode'. Using the Sercom
util to load the image. ssh into the slug. turnup init to the
harddrive (that still contained UnSlung.) I've since done turnup flash
, turnup memstick - to get it running without the hd at all. It runs,
but I'm no better off.)
I'll probably re-flash it then turnup to a newly formatted memory
stick and see if that helps.
- I've re-flashed DebianSlug 3.10.
Before running turnup memstick, I checked what package tool was available.
ipkg is there, apt-get and dpkg are not.
ipkg list does not show apache.
It does show cherokee though...
How do I get apache installed on a fresh DebianSlug?
