IPKG is a Package Management System, this means that you can install packages on your NAS with a single command like
ipkg install PackageName. This article will describe step-by-step how to do this.
To install IPKG you have to follow the following steps:
1. Create a folder with
mkdir /volume1/public and go to that folder
2. To download the bootstrap type
sh syno-e500-bootstrap_1.2-5_powerpc.xsh to run it.
4. You’ll see “Setup complete” on the command line.
rm syno-e500-bootstrap_1.2-5_powerpc.xsh to remove the file.
6. Update the ipkg list of installed products using the command
7. Update the ipkg installed packages to the latest versions using the command
reboot and press Enter. This will reboot the NAS. (Optional)
After rebooting and connecting again you can list all ipkg packages with
ipkg list | grep SearchString or
ipkg list. The last command can take a while.
Note: This is only for those models with a PowerPC Freescale 8543 (PPC) CPU. (DS209+, RS408, RS408-RP, DS408, DS508)
