But if X restarts, he still have the problem.
My best tips is:
ssh into the phone
$ opkg update && opkg upgrade
If the ssh session terminates, just ssh in again and run
$ screen -x
Screen is slow. You could also use disown if you use bash:
first install bash on the phone
$ opkg install bash
then, whenever you want to upgrade, do:
laptop $ ssh neo
neo $ bash
neo $ opkg update && opkg upgrade &>upgrade.log &
neo $ disown
neo $ tail -f upgrade.log
