Install on Synology NAS
Clone this wiki locally
ARM & intel based devices are supported. DSM version must be 3.2 or higher. Use armv5 installer for Marvell Kirkwood mv6282 cpu, you can use armv7 installer for newer ARM cpu's. Although armv7 repo was compiled with cortex-a9 optimization it was successfully tested on Marvell Armada XP based NAS.
1. Create a folder on your hdd (outside rootfs)
mkdir -p /volume1/@entware-ng/opt
Make sure that
/opt folder is empty (Optware is not installed), we will remove
/opt folder with its contents at this step.
/opt and create a symlink
rm -rf /opt ln -sf /volume1/@entware-ng/opt /opt
3. Run install script
- for armv5
wget -O - http://pkg.entware.net/binaries/armv5/installer/entware_install.sh | /bin/sh
- for armv7
wget -O - http://pkg.entware.net/binaries/armv7/installer/entware_install.sh | /bin/sh
- for x86-32
wget -O - http://pkg.entware.net/binaries/x86-32/installer/entware_install.sh | /bin/sh
- for x86-64
wget -O - http://pkg.entware.net/binaries/x86-64/installer/entware_install.sh | /bin/sh
- for MIPS
wget -O - http://pkg.entware.net/binaries/mipsel/installer/installer.sh | /bin/sh
/etc/rc.local file with a text editor and insert following strings
/bin/ln -sf /volume1/@entware-ng/opt /opt /opt/etc/init.d/rc.unslung start
at the end of this file, but before 'exit 0'. The last line ensures that Entware services will be started at boot.
Note: As of DSM 6.0,
/etc/rc.local is no longer executed as part of the boot process (see this thread). Instead you have two options.
$>sudo vi /usr/local/etc/rc.d/entware-startup.sh
#!/bin/sh case $1 in start) mkdir -p /opt mount -o bind /volume1/@entware-ng/opt /opt /opt/etc/init.d/rc.unslung start ;; stop) ;; esac
(2) Alternatively, make an executable script and use the Task Scheduler to create a triggered task that runs on boot. The script would contain:
#!/bin/sh mkdir -p /opt mount -o bind /volume1/@entware-ng/opt /opt /opt/etc/init.d/rc.unslung start
5. Add the following line in the end of
It will add
/opt/sbin to the PATH variable for interactive login.
Remark! According to https://github.com/Entware-ng/Entware-ng/issues/353 in DSM 6.0
/etc/profile should be modified.
6. Reboot your NAS.
You can use
mount -o bind instead of creating symlinks. In this case execute the following commands on step 2:
mkdir -p /opt mount -o bind /volume1/@entware-ng/opt /opt
and insert the following lines to
/etc/rc.local or your scheduled task from step 4:
mkdir -p /opt mount -o bind /volume1/@entware-ng/opt /opt /opt/etc/init.d/rc.unslung start
Firmware update erases
/opt folder. You should deploy Entware-ng outside of rootfs and create symlink to
/opt or use
mount -o bind. After firmware update you may need to edit
/root/.profile files once more.
