Quick question, hopefully someone can instantly see my error: I've built the full iproute2 toolset, and am working on an ipk/opk for ip and tc.
The default om2008 at least, has /bin/ip linked to /bin/busybox. So that should be changed. For inspiration, I looked at the postinst script for grep, since it must perform the same changes. (point at full bin instead of busybox in postinst, restore in prerm) So I took the update-alternatives line from grep's postinst and simply replaced 'grep' with 'ip' everywhere. [EMAIL PROTECTED]:~# update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/ip ip ip.ip 100 update-alternatives: Error: cannot register alternative ip to /usr/bin/ip since it is already registered to /bin/ip Isn't this the point of update-alternatives - to allow multiple possible binaries, and 'register' the one with highest priority? What have I done wrong? And why is the <path> component grep.grep (or in my case ip.ip)?? I checked and /usr/lib/opkg/alternatives/ip and /usr/lib/opkg/alternatives/grep are the same - busybox 50. j _______________________________________________ Openmoko community mailing list email@example.com http://lists.openmoko.org/mailman/listinfo/community
