I've noticed that some packages do not appear in package center on my DDSM while they show up on the DS DSM!
For example, MailPlus Server shows up under DSM but not DDSM!

Any idea why and how to fix it if possible? Something to do with memory or CPU perhaps.

Not all packages can work in ddsm (they do for example in vdsm). It's by design.

I see. Thanks.
So VDSM runs all packages on supported stations.
Are they including any free VDSM licenses with DiskStations that support it? I guess not, right?

Looking at the full list of packages in Package Center on my DS218+ versus DS215j then there are more available for the + NAS. Similar filtering based on the platform’s capabilities.

Yes. I get that the availability of packages are dependent on the hardware. Not arguing that.

But here, DSM and DDSM are on the same DS (the 216+II).

From Synology perspective those are not the same architectures. While your DS is 'x86_64', DDSM is considered as 'dockerx64'. Every SPK package has an INFO file, which has a lists for supported architectures and may or may not have a list of excluded architectures.

You could try to download the spk of your choice (Index of /download/Package/spk), rename the .spk to .zip, use a tool of your choice to edit the INFO file inside the zip and modify the entries for "arch" and "exclude_arch". Then rename the .zip back to .spk and try to install it in DDSM - since the signature for integration checking can not match the modified spk anymore, you need to make sure you can install unsigned packages. You can lookup the architectures here.

Such a modified SPK package may or may not run if dependencies are not baked into DDSM like kernel modules or required tools.

Anyhow: better try and fail, than not trying at all.. best case you succeed, worst case you just lost a couple of minutes of time ;)
