Newbie (1/14)

  1. Too curious to wait until you, Cooper or anybody else with more knowledge than I have, would react on my last suggestion, I went on and experimented. I moved sort (in fact a link) from /use/bin/ to /bin/ so I removed it from /usr/bin. And the wonder did happen..... even with the GUI OPKG Manager I could install coreutils-sort. Here the report: ====================== Installing coreutils-sort (8.16-1) to root... Downloading http://cloud.wifipineapple.com/mk5/packages/coreutils-sort_8.16-1_ar71xx.ipk. Configuring coreutils-sort. ====================== This last line was missing in all my earlier retries to install coreutils-sort. I've seen your link to forum OpenWRT - in fact there is written same things except that the suggestion given is removing the lean version of sort. I have now both. I assume that the basic commands in /usr/bin/ (and not in /bin/) are being installed there by installing new infusions and solving dependencies needed for that infusion. Anybody can confirm this? Thanx, Cooper, for responding. I learned some new things, Yummi
  2. Maybe I'v begin of an answer for my last question... we have 2 directories with commands: /bin and /usr/bin (usr stands for user? yeah ... I'm a newbee ) the new packages (coreutils) installed the "new commands they bring" in /usr/bin/ So I have a sed in /bin and a sed in /usr/bin, first one being the one with poor capabilities. Here a list of packages I (probably) installed: ==================== root@Pineapple:/usr/bin# opkg list-installed coreutils* coreutils - 8.16-1 <============= this one NOT (I assumed) coreutils-cat - 8.16-1 coreutils-comm - 8.16-1 coreutils-csplit - 8.16-1 coreutils-join - 8.16-1 coreutils-paste - 8.16-1 coreutils-split - 8.16-1 coreutils-truncate - 8.16-1 ============================== the commands they implement I found back in /usr/bin. Some have 'poor/lean' counterparts in /bin As PATH gives priority to /bin above /usr/bin I see mostly the /bin version if a command is not full-path-qualified entered. BUT.... the strange thing: sort and a few more (basic?) linux-commands are placed in /usr/bin and not in /bin. Have no idea why it is this way. But sort is a link to busybox. Here part of the directory-list of /usr/bin: ============================== -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 103237 Mar 23 2013 sed lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 17 Aug 4 04:40 seq -> ../../bin/busybox lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 17 Aug 4 04:40 sort -> ../../bin/busybox -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 50112 Mar 23 2013 split -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 313493 Mar 11 07:25 ssh -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 140933 Mar 11 07:25 ssh-keygen -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 4066 Mar 11 07:26 sslstrip lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 17 Aug 4 04:40 strings -> ../../bin/busybox lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 17 Aug 4 04:40 tail -> ../../bin/busybox ================================== And the sed here is NOT a link to /bin/busybox (installed by me). So I assume that moving sort from /usr/bin/ to /bin could solve the problem .... or are these thoughts too simple?
  3. ok, I understand this for the most and overwriting busybox is a bad idea. But what I do NOT understand is (and these things I mentioned already in my last reply): why I could install several other coreutils-packages (cat, sed, cut, and more) having also counterparts in busybox? I was able to install these with the OPKG Manager.
  4. Hi Cooper, yes it is for WPa MK5 but forum subject Questions (Got a problem? Not sure about something? Ask here.) seemed to me the place to put down my problem. I'm a newbie as far also Linux concerns but trying to learn fast. The GUI OPKG Manager was the most safe way to install coreutils-sort. Lack of memory/diskspace can't be the problem. Indeed I can download this package file with wget. Learning a bit more about installing packages, I tried to install it in this way. Here screen output: ---------------------------------- root@Pineapple:~# opkg install coreutils-sort Installing coreutils-sort (8.16-1) to root... Downloading http://cloud.wifipineapple.com/mk5/packages/coreutils-sort_8.16-1_ar71xx.ipk. Collected errors: * check_data_file_clashes: Package coreutils-sort wants to install file /usr/bin/sort But that file is already provided by package * busybox * opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package coreutils-sort. -------------------------------------------------------------- So here the real problem shows up.( OPKG Manager is lacking some reporting features in case of fail) But how I can solve this? The curious thing is that I was able to install some other coreutils commands as cat, sed, cut, tr and more and these commands have also lean versions in the WPa-set (Busy-box). So what is here the specific reason for denying to install? Thnx for helping, Yummi
  5. I need the more extended GNU sort (sorting on columns) but I'm not able to install this package with OPKG Manager. Is something wrong with package coreutils-sort? Installing other coreutils-packages (join, tr, cat) is going smooth, but in particular the coreutils-sort package NOT. It looks like a hangup. The installation is coming to this stage: ____________________________________________ Installing coreutils-sort (8.16-1) to root... Downloading http://cloud.wifipineapple.com/mk5/packages/coreutils-sort_8.16-1_ar71xx.ipk. ______________________________________________ The final message doesn't show up and refreshin screens confirms that this package has not been installed. I hope somebody can help me, Yummi
  6. I was afraid so. Maybe good point for the Mark VI. Thnx for answering, Yummi
  7. Just simple question: is there a way to clear the list notifications with command-line script? With 'pineapple notify [text]' we can add but how to clear all old notifications in an automated way? ( Further: it should be nice if the Search-box in Forums will remember one's last given string or strings. ) Kind regards, Yummi
  8. Thnx, Sebkinne, usefull tip. Did not know about this command pineapple. By the way, are there more of such 'not documented' commands in the WifiPineapple? Other issue: will it be possible in a future firmware release to switch off the green light? As the Kali Linux guys say: "The quieter you become, the more you are able to hear". Kind regards, Yummi
  9. See topic title. Would be handy. I couldn't find the support-thread for infusion Blackout anymore? Even not in archives. 2 weeks ago it was still there. Disappeared? (how these is working? I'm a newbee) Kind regards, Yummi
  10. Somebody has experience with the rather new Juice 15000 battery? Info at http://hakshop.myshopify.com/collections/wifi-pineapple-kits/products/wifi-pineapple-mark-v-ultra-bundle tells us: The Pineapple Juice 15000 is capable of simultaneous charge and discharge. When plugged into a power source via its Micro USB Input port the two USB-A ports remain operational. My experience is different. When I connect my battery, meanwhile powering my Pa (Pineapple), to a charger (my Ipad-charger, so enough power), the green led on the Pa is dimming and the Pa stops working (as seen by SSH or the web interface). No difference if I feed my Pa from the 2.1 A or the 1 A outlet. Minor questions: the small button on the Juice 15000. What exactly its purpose? Only to check battery charge status or is there more? Why these leds are flashing when I use my battery for powering Pa? Regards, Yummi
