What are Debian packages?

Debian is a free operating system ( OS ) for your computer. An operating system is the set of basic programs and utilities that make your computer run. Debian uses the Linux kernel (the core of an OS) along with thousands of software packages (also called 'packages') that are each distributed in a separate file. The packages contain the program code that does all the work, and are connected to each other in what is called a package dependency hierarchy . Each package depends on some smaller package or packages, which in turn depend on even smaller packages, and so on.


What is Opkg?

Opkg is the package management system used on embedded Linux systems, most notably OpenWrt. It was designed to replace the Rpm Package Manager (RPM), Debain packages, Alien packages, and the Red Hat Package Manager (RPM), but it can be used with any Linux distribution. With opkg you can easily download and install software packages from the Internet to keep your router up to date without a lot of hassle.
