sorry: "that's not right" was the answer for "> the cron daemon is not installed" from Dryvlyne
(The Wiki need a whitespace between the > and the next letter)
I explained that the preinstalled crond is an alternative crond
most scripts still don't work
Why not? I'm using the above-mentioned "S91cron" and a nice "rsync with hardlink backup rotate" script since a month.
Rsync is also included in the native WD-firmware ;-)
I'm a purist…
The script in your link installs many ipkg opt-packages (sed is double):
colordiff, coreutils, diffutils, findutils, psutils, inetutils, tcl, at, wakelan,
net-tools, grep, htop, ncdu, procps, sed, vim, wget, sed, unzip, unrar,
less, whois, patchutils, perl-libwww, tcpdump, netcat, bind, cdrtools,
gawk, mc, httping, tar, e2fsprogs, gzip, bzip2, m4, make, cron
I'm not a friend of unattended opt packages. The automatic cross-compiled cs05q1armel feed is not stable. Many packages are currently not tested for the white book.
Do you have tried the make/gcc ??
apropos: you can reduce many of the packages in your script to the busybox_1.10.3-1_arm.ipk (base+links).

BusyBox is a multi-call binary that combines many common Unix
utilities into a single executable. Most people will create a
link to busybox for each function they wish to use and BusyBox
will act like whatever it was invoked as!
