I tried to install some packages again and many of them tend to fail.
I had a look at http://www.opkg.org/packages/Packages and noticed that
some of the items there have only very little details, for example:

Filename: mokocard_0.1_all.ipk
MD5Sum: 44cc816b186448f313c32953a651026a

Filename: mofi_0.02_armv4t.ipk
MD5Sum: 20f8e6af3f3475d6874d6b17bf1cba63

Filename: efplayer_0.3_arm.ipk
MD5Sum: 9a3f29f6ae0c76cbe7f9419ac3439c70

Filename: gpssight_0.8.4_freerunner.armv4t.ipk
MD5Sum: 483e184603fb8b1703039a8407c4792f

Filename: mokoconv_0.1_all.ipk
MD5Sum: 2270c08017e157540c36f86d916c905d

Filename: liquidwar_5.6.4-2_armv4t.ipk
MD5Sum: ed8fbe67e570b391074275414b9f3c35

Filename: mbac_0.3_all.ipk
MD5Sum: 0115bc347e8a84895cb221210db70b77

Filename: numptyphysics_0.3-svn116_armv4t.opk
MD5Sum: 14a727cc8a5f69eed6a781257bbe1c00

Filename: omview_r32_armv4t.ipk
MD5Sum: 00f7abe3a833925ede784a0d036dabf7

Filename: openmiaocat_0.2_armv4t.ipk
MD5Sum: 134c2dd7ef8f781562fd66c7e541f93d

and so on. Is this normal, should the packages still install with no problem?

Some of the items have lines like
Source: ${SRC}
Source: nethack
Maintainer: $USER

Is this ok, should it still install with no problems?

I get messages like:

 * Failed to download
error 0
 * Cannot find package meooem.
 * Failed to download
http://www.opkg.org/packages/gpsdcontrol_0.5_all.opk, error 0
 * Cannot find package neon.
 * Failed to download http://www.opkg.org/packages/qwo_0.3_armv4t.ipk,
error 0
 * Cannot find package shortom.
 * Failed to download http://www.opkg.org/packages/ledclock_0.6_all.ipk, error 0

and some more. Any idea what's the reason? This is with 'opkg install
packagename package2name'. I can download the files ok with wget but
opkg fails for some reason and as you see, it can't find some packages
and for example meooem is missing totally from the Packages -file.

Any ideas how to fix this? Makes it a bit difficult to try to install stuff :(
