How to install nano on OpenPLI 4 ( Vu+ solo2 )

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:

cd /sbin
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: 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.
