reMarkable Entware

This is a modified installer for Entware, a lightweight package manager and software repo for embedded devices.

If you'd like to install reMarkable specific packages, you should install Toltec instead, which includes the Entware repositories.

See a list of available packages here and here.

Installation

Connect the reMarkable via USB and make sure it has internet access.

Connect to the reMarkable with SSH and execute

wget -O - http://raw.githubusercontent.com/Evidlo/remarkable_entware/master/install.sh | sh

All entware data is located in /opt (which actually points to /home/root/.entware because of size constraints on the root partition). Base installation is ~13MB.

Examples

opkg install git
opkg find '*top*'    # search package names and descriptions

After a reMarkable update

reMarkable updates wipe out everything outside of /home/root. While Entware remains intact in /home/root/.entware, the mount over /opt has to be recreated with entware_reenable.sh.

wget -O - http://raw.githubusercontent.com/Evidlo/remarkable_entware/master/reenable.sh | sh

No space left on device

You can clean up logfiles which take up considerable space on the root partition.

journalctl --vacuum-size=2M
