Entware is a package manager with about 2000 packages for embedded devices.
This application is like the swiss army knife of embedded devices.
This installer gives you the latest version of Entware, the next generation branch of the former Optware.
It creates a folder /shares/Volume_1/entware and mounts it to /opt
The folder is hidden from samba (which is good).
It also creates /etc/profile with the updated path on boot.
Warning: when you uninstall this app, all entware packages will be gone.
The MyCloud NAS has a lot of outdated packages… Entware gets you up to speed.
Some example projects:
- recent ssh for better security
- setup dev toolchain with git, a nice editor, gcc, python3, …
- tvheadend, transmission, rsync, …
- cuberite minecraft server
- php7 + Owncloud
- Install a full debian chroot thanks to the full featured busybox
