Issue Details

Is it possible to package and distribute Linux packages, like NTP, as well as configuration files to a deployed system using the NI Package Manager and SystemLink? 

 

Solution

Using the SystemLink Repository Manager, you can add a .ipk file (opkg package file type) to a feed for distribution to Linux RT targets. Additionally, you could build a file package that would distribute the custom configuration files you want to overwrite the generic ones which come installed with NTP.  
 

Additional Information

You can build file packages using the NI Package Manager command-line interface as explained in Assembling a File Package
