OPKG does not recognize Karma?


Recommended Posts

Hey there guys,

Ran into a issue when trying to start Karma in the web interface, it looked as if it was running the first time however I have not been successful since then capturing "Victem's" with karma which made me suspicious that it was somehow broken.

I popped into shell (ssh) and tried to figure out the issue, Here is what I know:

OPKG does not recognize that Karma is installed.

root@Pineapple:/etc# opkg remove karma
No packages removed.

OPKG is having an dependency issue involving the kernel (as far as i can tell)

root@Pineapple:~# opkg install karma
Installing karma (20060124-1) to root...
Downloading http://cloud.wifipineapple.com/mk5/packages/karma_20060124-1_ar71xx.ipk.
Collected errors:
 * satisfy_dependencies_for: Cannot satisfy the following dependencies for karma:
 *      kernel (= 3.3.8-1-d6597ebf6203328d3519ea3c3371a493) * 
 * opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package karma.

HOWEVER I can execute karma using the full path command: "/etc/init.d/karma start" just fine???

What am i doing wrong here? do I have to uninstall karma manually? and if so how? Thanks!

The karma in the OpenWRT repositories is not what we use. The original Karma (the one in the repositories) was written by Dino, but is long outdated. We are using a special patched version of hostapd to do the magic for us.

I suggest you flash your WiFi Pineapple MKV to the 1.2.0 firmware and try again using the the default karma.

Best Regards,
