Search in less

When I use less on openWrt, I cannot search by typing /. The forward slash just does not do anything.
How can I search with less on openWrt?

install less package, default one is probably stripped version from busybox.


Ah very cool, thanks! I didn't realize the default less was a stripped down version.

Note that this is the case for many system utilities: by default, only the stripped down version provided by BusyBox is installed.


Good to know, thanks.
