This is what I did (in that order):

1) I READ ALL POSTS FIRST in this thread

2) grab file in post #20

3) edit /mnt/us/extend/mount.sh and unmount.sh to remove the cp commands for .json (won't work on pw)

4) delete /mnt/us/extensions - no use on PW

5) do post #10. I did that right on the PW with
Code:
# dd if=/dev/zero bs=1024k count=100 >> /mnt/us/extend/optware.img
# resize2fs /mnt/us/extend/optware.img
100mb more should be fine.

6) now it is time to mount this with:
Code:
# /mnt/us/extend/mount.sh
7) grab file from post #24 and copy to where it needs to go

8) then I did:
Code:
# ipkg update
# ipkg upgrade
# ipkg install vim
Yay, syntax highlighting on demand in vi - essential.

And then the last thing I did was edit /etc/motd to add me a reminder that I should run /mnt/us/extend/mount.sh. No need for me to mount at boottime, only needed when actually logging in.

That should be all. This is now also supporting the PW.
Thanks so much for this info: I got all the included optware tools working fine. What I think might really powerful, though, is ipkg. The only question, though, is how compatible it is with the PW. I mean, vim and screen installed worked absolutely perfectly. However, when I tried to install python3, all its depends installed fine, but the python3 package itself hung during the "extracting data files to /" step (btw you only see this when using the ipkg -V 3 flag). Can anyone proffer any advice? I would *LOVE* python on my kindle.
