Nas326 installing metarepository

Post by JannePigg » Sat Jul 07, 2018 4:41 pm

Hello,
i have bought a Nas326 and would like to run the Plex server on it. I know nothing about Linux, but I am trying to follow the instructions here:
http://zyxel.nas-central.org/wiki/3rd_party_zypkgs

I have created the subdirectory /zg-pkgs/ in admin and placed the web_prefix file containing the line
http://downloads.zyxel.nas-central.org/ ... ypkg-repo/ In it.

I then go to the app center on the nas ->browse-> all apps and pressvthe cyckle icon.
The list is then updated from internet but contains only the original programs.
I have also rebooted the NAS in between, I have pinged the server amd it responds.

What can I be missing?
I am running firmware 5.21
Accessing the NAS from win7 and chrome or ipad with chrome or safari.

I hope you mean the subdirectory zy-pkgs?

Yes, just a misprint above. The subdirectory is zy-pkgs under admin.
I have created the subdirectory in the shared admin folder from windows and
Writen the web_prefix text file in notpad.

That's wrong. Notepad adds a Windows line ending (CRLF), while it should be a Linux line ending (CR). You'd better download the file from here. Make sure your browser doesn't add an extension.

It worked! Thank you for the help. As I said, I know nothing about Linux.
I will now continue with the installation according to the the instructions.
