How do I install Nano text editor


I recently bought a RUTX11, my first Teltonika router,
and am just starting to configure it.

On my other openwrt routers I have installed nano,
but when I do opkg update on the RUTX11, nano is not available as a package.

I assume this is because opkg is pointing toward a special rutos repository,
rather than the standard openwrt repository.
(RUTOS version is 07.06.3)

How do I get access to and install nano?
(apologies, I like vi even less than I like fried rat-tails cooked in garlic).


If you want to install extra packages not found in our repositories, you can do so using the default OpenWrt ones. Here are the steps:

  1. First, update the OpenWrt repositories by running:
opkg -e /etc/opkg/openwrt/distfeeds.conf update
  1. Then, install the nano editor by running:
opkg -e /etc/opkg/openwrt/distfeeds.conf install nano

After completing these steps, Nano should be installed and ready to use on your system.
