In 18.06 and previous versions, I was using bird4 for the VoIP routing setup.
However in 19.07 is not available, and instead there are several choices: bird1, bird1c, bird1cl, bird2, bird2c and bird2cl.
How to know which one is the right package?
I tried to dig into the package table, but I think is outdated and only showing the info for 18.xx ?
seems to be referring IPv4 and not to a version of
Due to the differences between bird v 1.x and v 2.x (mostly segregation ipv4 and ipv6) there are now packages catering the respective bird versions
c suffix providing the command-line client whilst those with cl suffix providing the lightweight command-line client
It seems there is currently no LuCI applet for bird v 2.x
I'm not using LuCI for configuring the bird, just manually configured the bird4.conf for the VoIP and IPTV setup for Movistar.
I guess then I can use either bird1-ipv4, which uses less space, as it is only IPv4, if I got it correctly, and see if the conf file is the same or I should adapt it ...
That should work, if you used bird v 1.x in 18.06 the conf should work for 19.07. Or adapt to v 2.x and be future proof and escaping the IPv4 and IPv6 segregation from v 1.x, probably with a bit of learning curve for bird v 2.x configuration.
Try to download from:
https://downloads.openwrt.org/releases/18.06.6/packages/ choose your hardware, go into routing and download the package bird4_1.6****.ipk
Then install the package manually, opkg install bird4xxxx.ipk
It should work.
Looks like it is working fine. I used bird1cl-ipv4 and it took automatically my previous bird4.conf
