equo install --nodeps /localpath/package.tbz2
worked to install the packages....NOTE - the --nodeps must come before the package and not after
But can't do anything - for some reason lots of build errors (implicit decleration of exit() function
) even in doing a "make prepare" in the linux source tree, so couldn't get the latest madawifi-hal snapshots to compile.
Am going to give up in 3.5 POD for now, and give the full x86 DVD a try later this weekend.
Just installed a 32GB SSD drive, so space is no longer a problem
