fixing ipkg in dd-wrt

You installed dd-wrt on your Linksys WRT54GL or Bullafo or whatever wifi router and now you want to install some packages but updateing package lists you get :

root@DD-WRT:/jffs# ipkg update
Downloading ...
Connecting to (
ipkg_download: ERROR: Failed to retrieve, returning 
ipkg_update: Error downloading to /jffs/usr/lib/ipkg/lists/whiterussian

To fix this you neet to enable JFFS2 which gives you some rw space, which you already did i guess. Now select Enable “Clean JFFS2” Save, Apply settings and reboot router which formats this filesystem and you can use it properly.
