Entware-ng is A modern Optware/ipkg replacement ; Entware-ng is package repository for embedded devices. These packages allow you to add new functionality to your device. Most of them taken from OpenWRT, but others are unique.

Entware-ng exist for x86, x86_64 and armhf architecture

Entware-ng also replace astware to use common base for ALL OpenWRT platform

Optware/Ipkg is obsolete, not maintened and not secure ... (abandoned)

Hi KSHH,

don't wait ... just search in Apache and php documentation, then (more difficult) adapt it to Asustor architecture (or perhaps support can help you technically but also to win lot of time by not searching by yourself where are the configuration file to change ) BUT for me the clear best solution is to get another Apache or ligthhttp ... to ensure the compatibility with others Web applications ... (the resources used can be minim ... only thinks is to don't use the same IP port (so change current Apache or new one) ... at end use the default Apache as a proxy to the second one ... so all become transparent ...

Can I use Entware-ng to install IO::Socket::SSL module?

Postby primusd » Sat Jul 15, 2017 12:25 am

Hi all,

First off, to say - I'm super appreciative of the devs who keep these packages up and running for those of us trying to work around various issues with an otherwise pretty great NAS!!

I'm in need of installing the IO::Socket::SSL module to get a new implementation of Spotify running on my Logitech Media Server. I have some basic *nix command skills but have never gone as far as installing a package manager, etc.

My setup is an AS6104T running 2.6.6 RCF2.

I have searched the forums and found one reference here https://forum.asustor.com/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=6472#p20142, but being so old I did not want to risk installing the provided apk.

Can someone please confirm if I can use Entware-ng to install the IO::Socket::SSL module? If yes, I'm happy to search/learn myself how to install it... I just don't want to risk testing it blind (as I don't have the skills to revert back). That said, I would also welcome any tips for the install as well ;) .

If/when I have the Spotify implementation working, I will post a how-to in the relevant LMS forum https://forum.asustor.com/viewforum.php?f=54 to assist any others facing the same issue.

Thank you in advance!!

David

Hi,

Entware is a fork for NAS of OpenWRT Opkg package management

So all modules or specific software are not always provide (to be fully compatible on multiple platform and synchronized with OpenWRT feeds ... )

For perl modules ... you need to installed the limited but enough development part (gcc, make, binutils, etc.) in opkg then install CPAN and your modules

a link here : https://github.com/Entware-ng/Entware-n ... rl-modules

If you have missing include ... under each feed (one by platform) you can get a full version of include folder corresponding to all Opkg packages

Philippe.
NB don't forget to update (opkg update) the feed and installed software (opkg upgrade) to be sure to have last Opkg package version ...

Thank you Philippe!! I will use this information and link to guide me as I learn how to install the required pieces to get the IO::Socket::SSL module installed.
