Hello All,
    Firstly I'm not here to moan at all. Love the phone love the SW, I 
was using OM2008.08 and it worked as my daily phone. I'm now trying 
Raster's images and they work as my daily phone. There have been a few 
lockups but in an Alpha that's expected.

Now the Question that I'd like to resolve is the /etc/opkg directory and 
what it contains. I've looked at the wiki page 
"http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Opkg" but it does not explain the 
configuration at all. I could look at the manual for ipkg but I don't 
know is that still valid, given that opkg has branched/augmented from ipkg.

Anyhow my problem is that I really want to understand this directory's 
contents as with so many distributions available and so many different 
repositories It would seem all too easy to mess up my current happy 
position with the default Raster build. I'm not sure about doing a opkg 
update, or upgrade or anything as yet.

If anybody can point me to some useful information that would be great. 
I tried the wiki and man opkg on the FR but that was being optimistic;-)

Thanks for any help
