Are you referring to /etc/opkg.conf? Ther is no /etc/ipkg.conf on my
system, and /etc/opkg.conf contains:
root at om-gta02:~# more /etc/opkg.conf
# Must have one or more source entries of the form:
# src <src-name> <source-url>
# and one or more destination entries of the form:
# dest <dest-name> <target-path>
# where <src-name> and <dest-names> are identifiers that
# should match [a-zA-Z0-9._-]+, <source-url> should be a
# URL that points to a directory containing a Familiar
# Packages file, and <target-path> should be a directory
# that exists on the target system.
# Proxy Support
#option http_proxy http://proxy.tld:3128
#option ftp_proxy http://proxy.tld:3128
#option proxy_username <username>
#option proxy_password <password>
# Offline mode (for use in constructing flash images offline)
#option offline_root target
dest root /
lists_dir ext /var/lib/opkg
which doesn't seem all that useful to me.
Are you suggesting that I should manually check all feeds in the files
in /etc/opkg ?
Well, I would like the tools I use (opkg or others) to help me avoid
such manual work as much as possible.
Obviously, opkg knows where to download a package from, why can't it
tell me the URI?
Anyway, I had a look at http://people.openmoko.org/~zecke/om2008.8-testing/
but it seems there are only 1973 kernels there.
