With the release of NI Linux Real-Time for PXI and further improvements to the NI Linux Real-Time platform, NI now utilizes ipks for software installation using the opkg package manager that ships with NI Linux Real-Time.
The attached tutorial covers:
Creation of a simple "Hello, World!" executable
Packaging the executable in an ipk for distribution with the opkg package manager

Note:NI Support does not officially support the usage of custom ipks. If issues are encountered, NI recommends posting to NI Linux Real-Time community forums for assistance from other NI Linux Real-Time users.
