Have you already seen this post https://communities.intel.com/thread/48558 ? It is on how to run scripts / programs at startup and they use cronie which you can download from AlexT repo. The information on how to use opkg is right here: http://alextgalileo.altervista.org/package-repo-configuration-instructions.html and cronie is in the i586 repo. I hope you find this helpful.
