I use OE environment and I would like to use ipk files it produces to
install on my FR using opkg.
My problem is that OE doesn't include all of the compiled packages to
So after reading some ipkg instructions I run:
ipkg-make-index dir_with_ipks
But it gives me errot like:
tar: *control: Not found in archive
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
tar: Pattern matching characters used in file names. Please,
tar: use --wildcards to enable pattern matching, or --no-wildcards to
tar: suppress this warning.

Does anyone know how to solve this?
