Adding bootstrap to Synology DSM

In package center > settings:

  • add to package sources
  • Allow installation of packages published by Synology Inc. and trusted publishers

Install in this order:

  1. Perl in Developer Tools
  2. Easy Bootstrap Installer in Community (choose entware as optware doesn’t have any recent updates)
  3. iPKGui in Community

Packages will be installed to /opt.

Command-line tool is opkg.

opkg list-installed
opkg list *gcc*

Source /opt/etc/profile at the end of the ~/.profile file for each user that needs
to use packages installed by ipkg.
