The packages available for the Custom Firmware have all been either specifically written for, compiled for, or at the very least checked for compatibility with, the Humax operating system, if this hasn't been done, I don't think you should expect it to 'just work'
ok I see but is there any file manager that you know will work from the command line. I like mc, I used it a lot on centos and mint, im looking for an easy way to move around files other than the web interface which appears to be slow when cut and paste. I cant move files from the humax remote because when I try to move from one drive to another it only copies not move, thanks
Move is the default when the source and destination drives are the same, so I'm guessing you want to Move to / from the internal HDD to a USB HDD, I don't know of a command line file manager package, but the SHell / BASH commands are very powerful, so command line users would use 'mv' to relocate files
