Adding "Features" with menuconfig doesn't work

Hallo together,

I would like to make a own package and installed a clean Debain 9 OS and did all what in Quick Image Building Guide stands.

I can open the "make menuconfig" comand and select (for example and testing)"htop" and "zabbix agentd" with <*>
When I save the config, build the image and cope it to my TP-LINK TL-WR1043ND(EU) v4 these packages aren't there.

Can somebody please help me what I need to do?

Thanks

Sounds strange, are you sure you saved the changes?
Check your .config file and search for "htop" the line should not have a "#". In the bin/packages directory there should also be a file named "htop" in the packages dir, after you run make.

Hi Andy2244,
yes I'm sure... I did a grep to the .config file. Look:

user@BuildDebian:~/lede$ cat .config |grep htop
CONFIG_PACKAGE_htop=y

user@BuildDebian:~/lede$ cat .config |grep zabbix
# zabbix
CONFIG_PACKAGE_zabbix-agentd=y
# CONFIG_PACKAGE_zabbix-extra-mac80211 is not set
# CONFIG_PACKAGE_zabbix-extra-network is not set
# CONFIG_PACKAGE_zabbix-extra-wifi is not set
# CONFIG_PACKAGE_zabbix-get is not set
# CONFIG_PACKAGE_zabbix-proxy is not set
# CONFIG_PACKAGE_zabbix-sender is not set
# CONFIG_PACKAGE_zabbix-server is not set
user@BuildDebian:~/lede$

Where do you mean bin/packages? On the building server or on the builded image?
On the building server:

    user@BuildDebian:~/lede$ ls -l bin/packages/mips_24kc/packages/
    insgesamt 180
    -rw-r--r-- 1 user user  49212 Feb  5 08:22 htop_2.0.2-1_mips_24kc.ipk
    -rw-r--r-- 1 user user    742 Feb  5 10:32 Packages
    -rw-r--r-- 1 user user    433 Feb  5 10:32 Packages.gz
    -rw-r--r-- 1 user user   1014 Feb  5 10:32 Packages.manifest
    -rw-r--r-- 1 user user    151 Feb  5 10:32 Packages.sig
    -rw-r--r-- 1 user user 112747 Feb  5 08:25 zabbix-agentd_3.2.7-2_mips_24kc.ipk

On the builded image i only got /bin/ and then there are the files ash, busybox, cat etc...

htop gets installed to /usr/bin and zabbix-agentd to /usr/bin and /usr/sbin.
Did you check for them there?
Another way to check if they are installed is to see if the configurations are in /etc

Hi VincentR,

i checked /usr/bin and /usr/sbin for both files. Nothing there. Even no config files in /etc

Am I flashing a wrong file? (I always flash via bootloader and not via WEB GUI)

in /home/user/lede/bin/targets/ar71xx/generic/packages is no htop or zabbix package.

In /home/user/lede/bin/packages/mips_24kc/packages there are both.

Here is the output from make command:

Am I doing something wrong?

mhh looks all normal to me, the package was build via make and shows up under packages, if you selected it via<*> it should be packaged with the .bin. Maybe try a sysupgrade, which is what you should use if you already have openwrt running on it. The factory is only for the first time upgrade.

You can also try build the exact same image with and without htop, what we would expect is the size of the two images should change by the size of the htop_2.0.2-1_mips_24kc.ipk package.

Other than that all seems normal to me, except that i haven't used the factory upgrade in ages, but as far as i understand it should contain the same packages.

Okay... now I've got a very funny thing...
I make the image with htop and zabbix_agentd and now I havn't flashed it via "Bootloader". Now I flashed it with the LuCi WebGUI Firmware Upgrade.
Now the device got as Wireless SSID "OpenWRT" and there is luci issing.
But now I've got zabbix_agentd and htop....
I'm going to make a new image with LucI interface....

Reporting soon....

Okay... Now I can tell the following:
I compiled a image for my TP-LINK TL-WR1043ND(EU) v4 with LuCi and luci-ssl-openssl.

Factory:    4 796 041
Sysuprade:  4 980 740
Difference:   184 699

When I copy the factory then SSID is LEDE, LuCi is installed but not luci-ssl-openssl.
When I install the sysupgrade then the SSID is OpenWRT and LuCi and luci-ssl-openssl is installed.

Exactliy the same when I choose LuCi, htop, zabbix_agentd

Factory:    4 664 969
Sysuprade:  4 849 668
Difference:   184 699

Is this intended?

Like noted, i have not used any factory image for years. So i'm not even sure if they are supposed to be 100% identically, also keep in mind lede merged back with openwrt a few months ago. So having some mixed lede/openwrt naming is to-be expected.

Maybe try a clean clone again using git.openwrt.org ?
You can also try join the lede irc dev channel and ask some questions, but don't expect a immediate response. As tip use the trial via irccloud for a painless irc setup, that stays connected.
