An interesting thing happened - in my iomega apps list, I could see transmission listed and could install that directly from iomega web interface.

It installed on port 9091 without any specific instruction or config from my side.

Two noticeable things:
1. the installation on 9091 ask for userid/pwd whereas the previous 9092 do not require id/pwd
2. the 9091 installation is extremely slow compared to the User Interface of 9092 - I think the overall performance also is slower

There clearly is something for Lenovo to improve their UI performance.

Apart from not being able to change default port for web management, I just found out that the folder created by Lenovo's transmission is read-only. This is unacceptable to me. Tried to find a way to fix that by modifying settings.json but failed because changes can't be saved when transmission keeps restarting itself once being killed. So I removed Lenovo's Transmission and went back to this DIY version Transmission for better customization.

Can you tell me how to do it? Make a link ?
I had the same problem. My firmware is I ended up installing the Optware version of ipkg instead of using the provided one, and this includes the update-alternatives file. But this requires that the original ipkg is no longer used. Any packages you have already attempted to install should be removed from there and re-installed using the new ipkg.

First clean-up:

Code: Select all

# echo 'PATH=/opt/bin:$PATH' >> /.profile
# . /.profile
# ipkg list_installed
< make a note of the packages you have (tried to) installed>
# ipkg remove <package> <package> <package>
Now install the ipkg-opt package.

Code: Select all

# ipkg install ipkg-opt
# mv /opt/etc/ipkg.conf{,.dist}
# cp /etc/ipkg.conf /opt/etc
Make sure the new ipkg is in your path:

Code: Select all

# which ipkg
Now, re-install ipkg to be sure. It might replace ipkg.conf, so need to put it back.

Code: Select all

# ipkg install ipkg-opt
# cp /etc/ipkg.conf /opt/etc
You should be able to install other packages now (eg close Shellshock bug in bash):

Code: Select all

# ipkg install bach
Now, run "ipkg list_installed" to make sure the new ipkg has the correct details:

Code: Select all

# /opt/bin/ipkg list_installed
# /usr/bin/ipkg list_installed
The old ipkg might have "ipkg-opt" showing but that's all.

Now, to make sure the old ipkg is never used to install anything, remove its version of the ipkg.conf file:

Code: Select all

# rm /etc/ipkg.conf
