I have a Synology NAS Server, and am trying to follow these instructions to install Boostrap:,_bootstrap,_ipkg_etc#Installing_compiled.2Fbinary_programs_using_ipkg

I got to this so far:

nas> sh syno-x07-bootstrap_1.2-7_arm.xsh
Optware Bootstrap for syno-x07.
Extracting archive... please wait
1226+1 records in
1226+1 records out
Backup your configuration settings, then type:
  rm -rf /volume1/@optware
  rm -rf /usr/lib/ipkg
This will remove all existing optware packages.

You must *reboot* and then restart the bootstrap script.

BusyBox v1.16.1 (2012-05-10 02:27:56 CST) built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

nas> rm syno-x07-bootstrap_1.2-7_arm.xsh
rm: can't remove 'syno-x07-bootstrap_1.2-7_arm.xsh': No such file or directory
nas> Connection to closed by remote host.
Connection to closed.

nas> ipkg update
-ash: ipkg: not found

I am not sure what to do about this error. Does anyone have any ideas? It looks like ipkg is kind of installed, but after rebooting the NAS server it basically disappears...?

I found the solution here:

  1. I deleted @optware - "rm -rf /volume1/@optware"
  2. I deleted ipkg - "rm -rf /usr/lib/ipkg"
  3. I deleted bootstrap: "rm -rf /volume1/bootstrap"
  4. I deleted syno-x07-bootstrap_1.2-7_arm.xsh - "rm -rf /volume1/syno-x07-bootstrap_1.2-7_arm.xsh"
  5. Checked my NAS's CPU here: and found out I have a "Marvell Kirkwood mv6281" -> meaning I need to download

Followed instructions on that post (linked above).
