How to install nano on your dreambox

Filed under: DreamBox — Tags: , , , — admin @ 2:50 am

The bundled vi package with dreambox really sucks ! and I am a big fan of nano text editor , as always I was disappointed to find a rebuilt nano package in Gemini or even dreamboxupdate repos , so I searched the net and wonderfully found a nano package which works with my dm800 😀
instruction to install nano :

cd /sbin
mv mipsel-nano_2.0 nano
chmod +x nano

    Great! Thank you very much!

  • FAIL
    root@pwnt:/sbin> nano
    /sbin/nano: 1: Syntax error: “(” unexpected

  • Lembe

    on dm800 i dont know, but on dm600pvr = syntax error

  • Great tip. Working fine on DM800.

    VI on a macbook pro sucks (no INS key) so got this installed on my DM800HD Pvr and is working great.

    I got nano: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    To solve that issue, I installed libncurses5

    opkg install libncurses5

    for dm500hd its WORKING
