Reply To: Problems Installing Firefly on Maxtor MSS



wow. why the hell would nano be required for firefly? WTF 😯

nano is the program that requires ncurses. firefly itself doesnt.

whoever is comfortable with vi, doesnt need this step. The Wiki is very vague about those steps.

You can also edit the config file on a windows box through a share in a linux-friendly editor, like wyoedit, or ultraedit, etc.

anywho, if you really want to go ahead and install nano and ncurses to the MSS, just install ncursesw like this:

ipkg install ncursesw --force-overwrite

this will overwrite the /opt/bin/reset and other links.
Those are just links provided by busybox, while ncurses installs REAL versions.
