SynologyDSM 4.2 released. issues and workarounds.

As usual ipkg (and software like Midnight Commander) will stop work after firmware update. Solution as usual:

vi /root/.profile
ln -s /volume1/@optware /opt
. /root/.profile


# add /opt/bin and /opt/sbin to PATH
export PATH
# comment out old TERM
#export TERM
# add new for Midnight Commander
export TERMINFO=/opt/share/terminfo
export TERM=xterm
alias mc="mc -c"

Due to high load on synology download servers this might happened:



  • wait
  • change download server to other by edit /etc/hsots

  • this is how ip resolves

    this is the way to switch (temporary) to another mirror.
