Archer C60 v2 can not install luci-app-sqm due to low space

Hi, today I'm buyed a new router with better specifications for install only a library: luci-app-sqm
for limit bandwitch when I'm using PS4, but I'm having the same problem of low space, what can I do for install it?

I need some help. Thank you so much

PD: The older router is P-Link TL-WA901ND with 4/32, and the new is TP-Link Archer C60 v2 with 8/64... I wanna cry .

I add the picture with the error.!

That device should have enough memory, what else did you install? Have you considered building your own image.

Run this to check what else did you install and can be removed.

out_fqn=/tmp/openwrtstats.txt
echo "[ User-installed packages ]" >> $out_fqn
install_time=`opkg status kernel | awk '$1 == "Installed-Time:" { print $2 }'`
opkg status | awk '$1 == "Package:" {package = $2} \
$1 == "Status:" { user_inst = / user/ && / installed/ } \
$1 == "Installed-Time:" && $2 != '$install_time' && user_inst { print package }' | \
sort >> $out_fqn 2>> $out_fqn
echo -e "\n" >> $out_fqn
cat /tmp/openwrtstats.txt

and post here the output.

Marginal I would say. You should not buy something with less than 16/128 if you expect to add a few things and keep it for some time.

Hi trendy!

How or where can I text these commands?

The question is that the older router, had similar free space. I thought that with a router with the double specs, I might install the luci-app-sqm libraries... :frowning:

Sorry for my english.

Then copy the output and paste it here inside the preformatted text tags (the </> button).

I think that anything is wrong... Pic

What does command df; du -skh /* report?
Please copy-paste here rather than upload photos.

How is the flash memory space usage in openwrt 18? There is another option of replacing the 8MB flash chip with a 16MB flash. I did it on a TP-Link MR200, and now I have 9.8MB free space. But this will require some desoldering on the board, and some code editing.

Sounds good, but I haven't level for this work... But, thanks for your comment!

Your df and du show that /overlay is practically empty and there is 2.8 MB of free space in the flash-- which is about what you have to work with on an 8 MB chip.

This does not jibe with what LuCI said. When you go to the LuCI software page the first time on a new install, the bar should show mostly green.

So yes what else are you installing because SQM isn't that large.

Hi mk24!

Nothing, I've installed nothing more. When I entered to this menu, the bar said like 82K free more or less, a little more than now.

Could you run a firstboot to reset the system to the defaults?
Then configure the internet connectivity and try to run the command from console.
opkg update; opkg install luci-app-sqm
