I have a DS108j, according to the Wiki http://forum.synology.com/wiki/index.ph ... y_NAS_have
it has Freescale mpc8241 PPC Processor, but the ppc824x-spk package doesn't work, the installer says
Your device is based on a powerpc CPU.
Sorry, this program was not compiled for your device.
I have run: grep unique /etc.defaults/synoinfo.conf | sed -r "s/.*_([^_]*)_.*/\1/g"
the result is simple: powerpc
I assume the CPU type is really the 824x maybe at the checking phase there is a text mismatch, maybe some type says ppc824x some powerpc
Tell me whatever I can help for you to make the package for us.
Really appreciate your efforts, thank in the name of all owners.
I got the CPU type info from http://ukdl.synology.com/download/firmware/0844/
I guess even though they use the same CPU they are compiled a bit differently. So, Synology (and hence me too) treats them differently. One thing you could try is to unpack the spk (it's just a tar file), modify the scripts/preinst, pack it up again and try installing it.
In the scripts/preinst file there will be a string "ppc824a". Just change it to "powerpc" and the installation won't show an error (it might still not work). If it doesn't work, you can still do a clean uninstall.'
If you find that it works, let me know and I can start making spks for powerpc arch with the additional warning. That way you won't have to make manual changes for the newer Transmission versions.
