Cannot install kmod-crypto-sha256

opkg install kmod-crypto-sha256 gives out the following message:

Installing kmod-crypto-sha256 (4.14.162-1) to root...

Collected errors:
 * satisfy_dependencies_for: Cannot satisfy the following dependencies for kmod-crypto-sha256:
 *      kernel (= 4.14.162-1-cf6288635a36d841474b19e8bbb3e43f)
 * opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package kmod-crypto-sha256.

lookst like it requires a specific kernel version: kernel (= 4.14.162-1-cf6288635a36d841474b19e8bbb3e43f)

uname -a gives this:

root@OpenWrt:~# uname -a
Linux OpenWrt 4.14.162 #0 SMP Thu Jan 9 17:54:24 2020 mips GNU/Linux

Do I need to build the specific cf6288635a36d841474b19e8bbb3e43f version of OpenWRT from source?
Also how can I know if a package is installable via opkg vs. needs to be compiled with the kernel?

Needs to be compiled with kernel.

If you are using release, you can opkg install it from repo.
Or if you install snapshot and immediately install the corresponding version from repo. ( Next snapshot build will be different.)
