OPKG update

When trying to update my opkg package using putty I get the following.

root@edison:~# echo "src maa-upm http://iotdk.intel.com/repos/1.1/intergalactic"> /etc/opkg/intel-iotdk.conf

root@edison:~# opkg update

I am guessing the address that the echo command sends has been changed but not sure what to change it too.

Re: OPKG update

Hi retrorocket1,

 

 

Thank you for contacting us.

 

 

The first thing I'd like to confirm is that your Edison has Wi-Fi connectivity. Have you already gone through the Wi-Fi configuration of configure_edison –wifi?

 

You can check you have Wi-Fi by doing a simple ping to google.com.

 

After that, go on and try using the commands:

 

echo "src mraa-upm http://iotdk.intel.com/repos/3.5/intelgalactic/opkg/i586" > /etc/opkg/mraa-upm.conf opkg update

 

 

This process can take a few minutes.

 

 

Wait for the process to finish and let us know your results.

Re: OPKG update

I can't remember if i remembered to do it in this particular run, I keep having to reflash cause of random errors, but I do notice the filename is different in the command you gave so I will check that out and get back to you.

Now I don't know if it matters but I am not able to go to the ip adress of the edison via browser. The reason I am not sure it matters is because all of these commands are over wifi so It definitely has a connection.

Re: OPKG update

Hi retrorocket1,

 

 

Thank you for your reply.

 

 

I don't think that the opkg update problem is related to not being able to go to the IP address via the browser. There's an issue with some of the latest images that don't allow users to go to the IP address using a web browser. We'd still like to confirm that you have a stable internet connection and know what image you're using.

 

 

Please, let us know the output of these commands:

 

ping -c 10 google.com cat /etc/version

 

 

We'll be waiting for your response.

 

 

Regards,

 

-Sergio A

Re: OPKG update

With this information we can confirm that the issue is not related to an older image or to Wi-Fi connection.

 

However, it's strange that you continue to receive that error. Have you made any configurations to any of the files inside /etc/opkg, such as /etc/opkg/base-feeds.conf or /etc/opkg/iotkit.conf? Please let us know the output of these, as well as of /etc/opkg/intel-iotdk.conf.

 

 

We'll be waiting for your response.
