Autorun for SD card mechanism?

good idea. I already have all those files on SD but after each upgrade
have to install them manually, which is annoying.
I would suggest something like:
1) notify user to do an opkg update and opkg upgrade first
2) change to post installation directory
3) change to package directory and install all that is in there
opkg install *.ipk *.opk
4) override files
[[copy all files to root of system, e.g. override/etc/blabla to
5) path files
[[apply all patchers to root of system]]
off course documenting your changes via patches/diffs is preferred over
overriding, allowing improvements in other parts of the files via opkg
upgrade before you start.
