Issue Details

I'd like to install a third party library like SQLite, or postgreSQL on my Linux-based RT Target in order to use that functionality. Is this possible?


To do this, you'll first need to be able to SSH into your Linux device. 
  1. Follow this article to setup shell access on your device: Accessing the Shell on NI Linux Real Time Devices
  2. If your device is connected to the internet, use the following commands to install your library:
    • opkg update
    • opkg install <name of library to be installed>
