   I have no idea how any of that works, but I'm guessing that somewhere you
have a file called 'control'? This is what it looks like in the package:

$ dpkg-deb -f ~/software/omgps_0.1_20090618-3_armv4t.ipk 
Package: omgps
Version: 0.1
Description: package built by openmoko toolchain
Section: openmoko/applications
Priority: optional
Maintainer: meng
Architecture: armv4t
Homepage: http://www.openmoko.org/
Source: omgps

   That's not what I'm asking. Just add the libpython2.6 package name to the
Depends: line to resolve this dependency:

$ omgps
omgps: error while loading shared libraries: libpython2.6.so.1.0: cannot
open shared object file: No such file or directory

   The one that says "package built by openmoko toolchain".
