Bootstrap Synology DS215j DSM 5.x provisioner steps

Boostrap the Synology DS215j with optware, ipkg, and sudo

Inspired mostly from the Bootstrap DS215j blog post

Download & Install ipkg in a persistent manner

# Create a directory that won't get nuked during DSM security updates
mkdir /volume1/@optware
cd /volume1/@optware

# Download & configure ipkg
feed=http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/optware/cs08q1armel/cross/unstable
ipkg_name=`wget -qO- $feed/Packages | awk '/^Filename: ipkg-opt/ {print $2}'`
wget $feed/$ipkg_name
tar -xOvzf $ipkg_name ./data.tar.gz | tar -C / -xzvf -
mkdir -p /opt/etc/ipkg
echo "src cross $feed" > /opt/etc/ipkg/feeds.conf

# Move the extracted /opt files to our persistent optware directory & symlink /opt
mv /opt/* /volume1/@optware/
rm -r /opt
ln -s /volume1/@optware /opt

# Make ipkg available immediately to root
export PATH=/opt/sbin:/opt/bin:$PATH

Create a service script to recreate the symlink to persistent optware directory if needed at reboot

mkdir -p /usr/local/etc/rc.d/
wget -O /usr/local/etc/rc.d/optware.sh https://gist.githubusercontent.com/stevenhaddox/cead26111aea3fdcc9a5/raw/optware.sh
chmod 755 /usr/local/etc/rc.d/optware.sh

Setup sudo

ipkg install sudo
visudo
# Add the following line to visudo
# %wheel ALL=(ALL) ALL
%administrators ALL=(ALL) ALL
#!/bin/sh
#
# Optware setup
# Alternatives Optware Startup und Shutdown Script #/usr/local/etc/rc.d/optware.sh
#
case $1 in

[ ! -h /opt -a ! -d /opt ] && ln -s /volume1/@optware /opt
for i in /opt/etc/init.d/S??* ;do
# Ignore dangling symlinks (if any).
[ ! -f "$i" ] && continue
case "$i" in
*.sh)
# Source shell script for speed.

trap - INT QUIT TSTP
set start

# No sh extension, so fork subprocess.
$i start
