I have a GoFlex Home unit which I am aiming to upgrade in the near future, but before I do I wanted to have a good look around the system and I've found that Midnight Commander is an excellent tool for letting me do this. Unfortunately there is no package manager on the unit so I don't know how to get hold of it. Does anyone know?

Midnight commander has a lot of dependencies... so you could try mangling the code snippet in the linked post, but i dont advise it


mount / -o remount,rw
FILES=$(ls /root/*deb)
cd /
for NAME in $FILES ; do
    ar -x "${NAME}"
    tar zxf data.tar.gz
    rm debian-binary data.tar.gz control.tar.gz
    rm "${NAME}"
