I have been trying to install ipkg on a Synology NAS according to the instructions available at https://github.com/basmussen/ds414-boostrap-dsm5

Here's the beginning part of the instructions:

wget http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/optware/cs08q1armel/cross/stable/syno-mvkw-bootstrap_1.2-7_arm.xsh
chmod 700 syno-mvkw-bootstrap_1.2-7_arm.xsh
sh syno-mvkw-bootstrap_1.2-7_arm.xsh

However, once I run the syno-mvkw-bootstrap_1.2-7_arm.xsh, I get

Error: CPU not Marvell Kirkwood, probably wrong bootstrap.xsh

Here's the screenshot:

My NAS's info is as below:

Model name: DS414

CPU: MARVELL Armada XP MV78230

DSM version: DSM 6.1.5-15254

I am aware that there is no xsh bootstrap for the ds414 but hopefully, there's a workaround.

  • What youŕe trying to install is not for your hardware, the error message is explicit about that. There's no workaround. – user252181 Feb 8 '18 at 17:27
  • Did you end up installing Optware successfully? I've been struggling to get some unpackaged software running on my DS216j running DSM 6.2.1-23824 Update 1, and there seems to be a lot of outdated information on the web. I've yet to find any information confirming that it is actually possible to set up an alternative package manager on low-end Synology NASes running a current version of the DSM. – sjy Dec 2 '18 at 1:54
  • @sjy I ended up manually installing Easy Bootstrap Installer via the package center with the package source cphub.net, the package can be downloaded at cphub.net/?p=ebi. – kolunar Dec 3 '18 at 12:35
