Newbie post so be gentle! (but did do a search)
Just got my Mybook today (white light model) and am tying to set up transmission for torrents. Transmission installed fine using optware using instructions in wiki (for new mybook obviously). My problem is that I now need to edit the settings.json file to allow web access but cannot install any text editor using optware. Every editor I've tried to install (pico, nano, vim) just keeps giving the following error
ERROR: ncurses.postinst returned 127
Obviously this is at the end of part where ncurses is installed after nano etc.
Can anybody advise how to solve this (or another way of editing the required file that doesn't require a ncurses based text editor) as this is driving me crazy!!!
My Linux is very rusty but willing to try anything to get it work. Am so close now that it's just annoying.
