Buffalo WZR-HP-G300NH2 Manual Install Issue
December 06, 2018 08:30PM
Hi Folks-
After installing OpenWRT from their site as directed in the PB how to, I began the manual PB install.
I Telneted in to and at the prompt I typed:
echo "src/gz piratebox [stable.openwrt.piratebox.de]; >> /etc/opkg.conf

^The forum actually screws up the above by interpreting the URL. Suffice to say the line is as it should be in the tutorial.

an error returned:
-sh: can't create /etc/opkg.conf: Read-only file system

typing # mount I see
/dev/root on / type squashfs (ro,relatime)

How can I change this?

Thanks for the help friends.

You better start from the beginning. If your opkg.conf is read only it seems you have issue with your freshly installed firmware

Just happens sometimes...
