Just reporting possible bug(s)? of Development Snapshot build Thu Nov 12 08:35:03 2020 OpenWrt SNAPSHOT r14900-acb336235c
for the D-Link DIR-878 Rev.A1
Following message displayed when
opkg update is run:
opkg_download: Failed to download https://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/targets/ramips/mt7621/kmods/5.4.75-1-878d1c290479417154653dd2ca7e6dbd/Packages.gz, wget returned 8
With that said,
Had no problems installing LuCi nor Adblock.
here for possible solutions.
I have an EA7300 and I'm trying to install OpenWrt for the first time in my life. I just downloaded the snapshot, flashed the image, and ran opkg update right after sshing to the router.
All lists are updated except
I cannot install luci.
ckeck_data_file_clashes: Package libnl-tiny1 wants to install file /usr/lib/libnl-tiny.so but that file is already provided by package libnl-tiny
snapshots are completely untested. Just automatic builds of the most recent source code and packages. Although snapshots are usually ok, they may sometimes contain serious bugs that prevent booting the device correctly or even prevent easy sysupgrading to new versions.
You should report the issue properly:
This is likely related to the build system changes that led to "duplicate feed" errors week ago, and later fixes for that error (on 7 Nov).
I looked at the buildbot download dirs, and apparently kmod builds have not been upaloaded since Sat 7 Nov.
Looking at the
buildbot repository I could imagine that @jow disabled the kmod_archive for snapshots, while only the kmod feed adding step should be disabled, as it was recently added to the openwrt repository itself.
Some time ago I suggested a patch removing this kmod_feed step entirely from buildbot. Maybe it's best to modify and backport
the patch to depend on CONFIG_BUILDBOT only, so it's done for all previous releases.
I'm new to OpenWrt. Is there any way I can compile (or cross-compile) the firmware to get around this issue?
Sure, if you build from source, you won't this issue to begin with (as the necessary kernel modules will be/
need to be part of your own build).
@jow fixed it and it shold be back within the next day(s)
@aparcar. Do you know if jow's change is merged with master and included in the most recent build or still being evaluated?
