While using console to change files on you satellite receiver, most people will use vi to edit. But vi can be complicated.
I like the more user friendly tool nano. Sadly it doesn’t come with OpenPli.
Here is how to install it manually.
First, open a console (telnet) and logon as root on your sat receiver.
Then execute these commands:
mv mipsel-nano_2.0 nano
chmod +x nano
Now, nano needs libncurses. Without it , it will give an error:
nano: error while loading shared libraries: libncurses.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
This can be solved by installing the lib.
opkg install libncurses5
now nano will work.
