    First I would like to say thanks for the excellent firmware from Voxel and the Kamoj addon.
    I have installed Entware and updated the software and the packags. All seemed ok, but when I log into the router cant see Entware . need guidance.

    You need to install the package(s) you want to use.

    You can download using wget or curl from router command prompt.

    it will automatically install to various folders in /opt. If you installed entware correctly, then those folders are on the usb.
    (or are symlinks to folders on usb)

    I'm not sure what you are doing, but working with entware / configuring it mostly needs to be done via ssh or telnet.

    Just tried installing ffmpeg. This is more or less what you should have seen:

    Code:

    And then to confirm it has been installed:

    [email protected]:~$ find /opt |grep ffmpeg
    /opt/lib/opkg/info/libffmpeg-full.list
    /opt/lib/opkg/info/ffmpeg.control

    Is it not possible to have a tool like in enigma 2... filezilla and dcc to name a couple where we can connect within the custom firmware to install ipk and tar.gz files and update the image.
    So novices like me who are not linux literate can take advatage of yours and others superb work

    Regards
