Ath79 snapshot image 2.4GB

The current snapshot image for ath79 generic has grown a little bit, it's about 2.4GB in size.
Doesn't seem to be right

Are you talking about the image builder link?

yes, technically not me, but OP :slight_smile:

That's the great thing about working with intelligent people, they know how to find things without having to bog down in excessive detail

On the other hand, the ipq40xx/generic image builder is about 1.5GB, the ramips/mt7621 is about 3.1GB. This is about 10x times the size I used to download (didn't do it for a few weeks).

That got fixed... The increase in size is interesting and probably related to per device roots initramfs

@Ansuel ath79/generic is not building, last one took 11 hours, but that was 8 days ago: https://buildbot.openwrt.org/images/#/builders/219
Can anything be done to fix this?

will check it problem is that we are releasing a new minor for 23.xx so buildbot is a bit busy lately.

@Ansuel ath79/generic snapshot has finally finished building correctly, it took 11 hours, but your fix https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/commit/c85348d9abf4b89d37a7fa134cf6424bdf16787f did the trick. Thanks!

The only problem is that both ASU and firmware-selector.openwrt.org aren't working or erroring out when trying to get a new custom build.

i'm honestly scared to know what was the size of the imagebuilder...

In the previous successful build, which also took 11 hours, it was around 2.3 GB. Now it's only 95 MB in the snapshot downloads https://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/targets/ath79/generic/
