Fix ipkg's Bootstrap Installer package on Synology after restoring system configuration

If the quadrat4.de Bootstrap Installer for ipkg package has been installed on your system and for any reason you had to restore the system configuration (but your previous volumes are still intact), you may notice that reinstalling the package does not restore the ipkg command anymore.

Here is the fix you need to apply :
  1. Uninstall the package if installed
  2. Connect to the console
  3. Execute the following command to uninstall the previous package:
    rm -rf /volume1/@optware
    rm -rf /usr/lib/ipkg
  4. Install the package again
  5. Reboot
