Install opkg for more packages

(only recommended on a docker DSM ! See previous post !)

Install with gui:

In package center > settings:
– add to package sources
– Allow installation of packages published by Synology Inc. and trusted publishers

Install in this order:
– Perl in Developer Tools
– Easy Bootstrap Installer in Community (choose entware as optware doesn’t have any
recent updates)
– iPKGui in Community

Packages will be installed to /opt.

Command-line tool is opkg.
%opkg list-installed
%opkg list ‘*gcc*’

Source /opt/etc/profile at the end of the ~/.profile file for each user that needs
to use packages installed by ipkg.
