IPKG Update Problems

When attempting to run the command to update ipkg on a new unslung box I kept seeing the following issue.

user@machine ~> ipkg update
ipkg_conf_init: Failed to create temporary directory `(null)': No such file or directory

Since I hadn't set up an unslung box in quite awhile I couldn't remember how I'd fixed this before after I switch over to using bash instead of the default sh. Then like a flash it hit me...temporary directory genius.

user@machine ~> mkdir ~/tmp

Now it works like a charm.
