Entware Quickstart

1 post in this topic

Attention!

Keenetic provides no official support for third-party packages, such as Entware. If you have questions, comments, or suggestions, feel free to post them here.

Requirements

To start using Entware on Keenetic, you need:

  • A Keenetic router with a USB port (except Keenetic 4G) running NDMS 2.07 or higher
  • Either "File and printer sharing (SMB/CIFS protocols)", or "FTP server" component installed
  • The "Open Package support" component installed
  • A USB disk with an ext2/ext3/ext4 partition

Important: Keenetic should be connected to the Internet.

Installation instructions

  1. Connect your USB storage to Keenetic
  2. Share the ext2/ext3/ext4 partition via FTP or SMB/CIFS
  3. Create the "install" directory
  4. Copy the following archive to the "install" directory: EN_mipsel-installer.tar.gz
  5. Go to the Keenetic web interface: "Applications » OPKG", check "Enable", select the USB drive, and click "Apply"

Wait for the following message in the system log:

"... installer: [5/5] Entware installed!"
