That’s an ftp problem. Not sure why, but on some systems, the ftp doesn’t work when optware is installed. The workaround is to download the file by hand and install it that way… for example, download http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/optware/mss/cross/unstable/libvorbis_1.1.2-5_mipsel.ipk by hand and put it someplace on the mss you can get to it (one of the samba shares) and then install it from that location (ipkg install /path/to/libvorbis_1.1.2-5_mipsel.ipk).

Or, install the wget from unslung and use that to download it…

ipkg install wget
/opt/bin/wget http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/optware/mss/cross/unstable/libvorbis_1.1.2-5_mipsel.ipk
ipkg install libvorbis_1.1.2-5_mipsel.ipk

Maybe you could do something with setting your path to include /opt/bin before /bin, and symlink /bin/wget to /opt/bin/wget, and maybe that would work too, but I haven’t tried that.
