Custom Install of OpenWrt - OpenVPN

My router is a TP LINK/Archer C60 V3.

There seems to be space issues with this.

Per Specs:
Flash = 8MB
RAM = 64MB

I would like to install the OpenVPN client with the OpenWRT image but the standard way of using the Software selection from the GUI is yielding the following:

How would I go about getting the open VPN client on this thing?

Do I need to build a custom OpenWRT image?

Thank You!

Try online image builder, remove unwanted packages, add openvpn, and keep fingers X:ed.

Only install openvpn-openssl and luci-app-openvpn packages, skip installing easy rsa package and generate key on a linux computer, then upload them to the router. I have Archer C20 with 8MB flash and openvpn + mwan 3 fits into it.

In addition to what kukulo said about not installing any RSA certificate tools (openssl-util and easyrsa), use openvpn-wolfssl, since the wolfssl library is already present in the default build and won't need to be installed again. Openssl by itself is huge.

I use xca to generate and manage certificates on a PC. It exists for Linux and Windows. If you are only interested in running a VPN client to connect to someone else's service, they will provide you the certificates.
