Try openwrt instead. It's a lot easier to install packages and they are all newer.

Ok, thanks, I'll look into it. Why is Tomato so popular if OpenWRT is more extensible?
Are you using optware or entware. I haven't looked myself, but if you've only looked at optware, give entware a glance, and perhaps it'll have what you need.
Another possible option is to check out my project Tomatoware.
Downloads available at lancethepants.com/files.
Tomatoware is extracted into and runs in /opt, much like optware/entware. Based on the entware toolchain, it provides a native compiling environment for mipsel based devices.) You could compile the application yourself and run it. Python 2.7.3 is already included in the package. It actually began primarily as a project for me to run sabnzbd nzbclient, and other nzb like programs. Flexget appears to be similar to sickbeard and couchpotato, both of which I have run using tomatoware.
Because Tomato QOS whips the ass off all other firmware.
I think QOS is only useful in slow third-world Internet. Otherewise, it bogs down the routing speed on fiber connection.
Thanks LanceThePants! I love your approach of making it easier for users to do the compiling.
Quick question though: Am I meant to be running the scripts on a full Linux box? When I do it on Shibby I am told that sudo is not found. I figure I cannot get sudo without first having Entware or Optware which seems roundabout.
The project on github is just the code for compiling it for the router, on say a debian/ubuntu box. You don't need to mess with the github code, I have compiled version ready for use on routers.
Go to lancethepants.com/files and download the latest tomatoware. Put opt.tgz you download in the /opt directory on the router, and extract it.
This is a replacement for optware/entware, so you'll need to clean out /opt first before installing this.
Python is included. A c/c++ compiler is included if you need to add more applications. Looks like flexget is written in python, so it should just run similaly to /optware/entware.
No need for sudo on the router. Just get the opt.tgz file and extract it. I guess you put the github code on the router? sorry, I should have been more clear, you really don't need to do anything with the gihtub code, unless you want to compile it in debian/ubuntu, but no need.
I was trying to do it on the router, you are quite right. Strangely I'm still getting stuck at installing SQLAlchemy.
I think I'll bug the Flexget people to see if they can help. Still, definitely going to use Tomatoware from now on.
Oh, and I should mention that this time I was trying to install Flexget from git.
I think QOS is only useful in slow third-world Internet.
Do you approve of third-world scum bags ( Brown people, Yellow people and Sand Niggers ) using Tomato or would you suggest I use something else ?
