Ok, I tried opkg update and opkg install python python_modules and I only got
error messages. How to I access Python from the command terminal?
This might lead into another question I had, which is how do I use my PC,
which is running windows, to put files onto the overo. My computer has a
Micro SD card slot. Could it be as simple as dragging files from my desktop
onto the SD card?
