I am trying to install .ipk with opkg in yocto.
If i run below command
opkg install *.ipk
I am getting the below error:-
* opkg_conf_load: Could not create lock file /var/lib/opkg/lock: No such file or directory.
I did some research and followed this link
I came to know that one should add in the conf/local.conf
EXTRA_IMAGE_FEATURES = "package-management"
IMAGE_INSTALL_append = " opkg "
PACKAGE_CLASSES = "package_ipk"
Even though i am getting the same error.
"/var/lib/opkg/" is existed in my image build directory, but after installing the image to the target device the "/var/lib/opkg/" is not appearing.
I am guessing that, the disappearance of the /var/lib/opkg folder may be causing the opkg error.
Can anybody please help me on this problem.
