OPKG Installation Log
GP3.2 v0.70 the installation log is displayed on the TV screen. If wanted the log can be saved over the blue button in the
/tmp directory. The file name og the log file is
gemini-ipkg.log. In case of problems the Log file can be uploaded in the board.
|The log file is deleted when the Dreambox reboots. Copy the file always before rebooting when needed for posting in the board.|
Upgrade with telnet
It's also possible to upgrade the Dreambox via Telnet or SSH. Use the following command:
opkg update && opkg upgrade
For Dreamboxes with limited flash memory e.g. DM500HD and DM800(se), the upgrade can be performed with the following command. In this case Enigma2 is stopped and the upgrade is performed, without filling the flash memory (hopefully). When using a tool to expand the flash memory (e.g. mediaboot, rambo), the first command can be used without any problem.
opkg update && opkgfb
After the update, please restart the Dreambox.
