I first tried to install httping, so I can ping websites. I got this error:

ERROR: File not found: //usr/local/lib/ipkg/lists/whiterussian
       You probably want to run `ipkg update'
ERROR: File not found: //usr/local/lib/ipkg/lists/non-free
       You probably want to run `ipkg update'
ERROR: File not found: //usr/local/lib/ipkg/lists/backports
       You probably want to run `ipkg update'
/bin/ipkg: line 1184: sort: not found
/bin/ipkg: line 1184: can't open /jffs//usr/local/lib/ipkg/status: no such file
/bin/ipkg: line 1184: can't create /jffs//usr/local/lib/ipkg/status: nonexistent directory
/bin/ipkg: line 1184: can't create /jffs//usr/local/lib/ipkg/status: nonexistent directory

       You probably want to run `ipkg update'

       You probably want to run `ipkg update'

       You probably want to run `ipkg update'
ipkg_get_install: ERROR: Cannot find package httping in //usr/local/lib/ipkg/lists
ipkg_get_install:        Check the spelling and maybe run `ipkg update'.
/bin/ipkg: line 1184: can't open /jffs//usr/local/lib/ipkg/status: no such file

So, I tried running ipkg update. It takes less than a fourth of a second to finish (which is surprising), and then I run ipkg install httping again with the same issue. Then, I decided to run ipkg list, and I get this:

ERROR: File not found: //usr/local/lib/ipkg/lists/whiterussian
       You probably want to run `ipkg update'
ERROR: File not found: //usr/local/lib/ipkg/lists/non-free
       You probably want to run `ipkg update'
ERROR: File not found: //usr/local/lib/ipkg/lists/backports
       You probably want to run `ipkg update'

So, how can I fix this?

Note: I have a Netgear WNDR4300.

Update: I tried running bash and /bin/bash, and I get -sh: /bin/bash: not found. Something really weird is going on here.

  • The default DD-WRT builds use Busybox's Ash, a lightweight shell, similar but less-function filled than Bash. /Bin/Bash is symlinked to /opt/bin/bash and needs to be installed. – cde Jan 25 '16 at 2:10
  • @cde Well, how can I install it then? – Flare Cat Jan 25 '16 at 2:16
  • What Build are you running? – NetworkKingPin May 10 '16 at 9:47
