You were very close. The directory you were looking at was for the PowerPC. Try any of the directories under the following path for packages compatible with the SDE.

http://www.angstrom-distribution.org/fe ... bc/armv7a/

Better yet, there is a package manager included with the SDE. If you're using the base SDE release (ie. using the GPE interface and not Enlightenment) the package manager can be found under the "Settings" tab.

I can install Enlightment on SDE?? HOW?
Just another question:
I managed Wifi Connection and already installed Firefox.
Now another question:
I always have to type in the command
"
[email protected]:/home/root# insmod /lib/modules/sd8xxx.ko mfgmode=0
[email protected]:/home/root# ifdown eth0
[email protected]:/home/root# wpa_supplicant -P /var/run/wpa_supplicant.pid -qq -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -B -ieth0
" to get WiFi working after reboot. any way to "autoexec" it?

Thanks for help and btw sorry for the numerous threads I have created, most of them solved by myself.
Robin

you could make a script, i dont have a5, but it should look somthing like:
Code:
#!/bin/bash
instructions


then i think there is a way to set the script to execute at startup

always good if you've got questions :) just remember to update your threads when you have good answers so other people can find em too!
cheers

But you said you can install enlightment? How? Would be nice, better than GDE :D Or best would be just to install gnome or KDE :D

This thread seems like a good place to start collecting software packages etc.

I found opkg.org, and can install many apps from there. For example Nymptyphysics is really cool. Some of these are in the default package repos (opkg update will update the package repo list). You can install things from the opkg.org repo by using the command line available on the package page. It may be that this doesn't load the dependencies though. For example a lot of the python stuff doesn't get pulled in automatically (I think apt has spoiled me). However I was able to just search the known pacakges (opkd list | grep xxx) and find the needed package in the known repository, and install it that way.

So software I've installed and have working:
- nymptyphysics
- usbmode (though I haven't actually been able to have the SDE mount on my PC without using recovery mode at this point)
- firefox
- x11vnc
- claws-mail (IMAP mail client)
- gnome-mplayer
- xmms

As you can see I've tried a lot of music apps, but I can't get any sound out of this at all. Is Angtrom using alsa, esd, oss, or pulse? Does anyone have any success stories of getting sound to play? if so please inform.

I think I'll stay with the GPE environment for a little while. The fact that it is Xwindows based means that you can launch applications on the A5 and have them displayed on my PC via an ssh session (ssh -X hostname).

Overall, this is really exciting!

I beg to differ here. A forum thread over possibly several pages is not really a good place to keep such information.

May I suggest you use the openAOS wiki which magically spawned an package page just right now ;-)

Another recommendation from my side: use the default oe/angstrom feed preconfigured in opkg if possible.

Not sure what to do next ... Pasting my contribs here so I can copy/paste them later.

Hrm, need to look into that, thanks for the heads-up!
Also I took the liberty to quickly merge your changes. Thanks for those! :)

PS: If you want I can give you or anyone else an account for that wiki/tracker. Makes things more convenient with email notify etc.

hangs for me as well.

Also, the package manager freezes my system when I try to install a package (even in the root account).

http://www.opkg.org/package_8.html

I've managed to get this almost installed (all lib packages instal correctly), but run into the following error:
Code:
Installing tangogps (0.9.6.-r2) to root...
Collected errors:
*ERROR: Cannot satisfy the following dependencies for tangogps:
* frameworkd-config * gtk+-fastscaling (>= 2.10.14) *


Im working on resolving this, I'll get back when I've got more info. :)

Well, looks like I got it to work. :)
Once I had the lib dependencies installed, I had to use the opkg -force-depends command to install, and it seems to be working. :)

Very nice! :)
Downloading some maps now of my local area. 400+Mb est. download. lol Hopefully this works. Would be a great addition to the openAOS wiki page.
