D-Link DIR-860L OpenWrt 19.07.3 packages


I'm running OpenWrt 18.06.1 on a D-Link DIR-860L router and started to consider upgrading it to 19.07.3.
I got a little confused about the target/instruction set and the available packages and just need some confirmation.
According to this page:
the target is ramips and there is a packages folder for this target under 18.06.1:
I checked the opkg configuration form the currently running router and learned that it has an alternative target - mipsel_24kc:

src/gz openwrt_core http://downloads.openwrt.org/releases/18.06.1/targets/ramips/mt7621/packages
src/gz openwrt_packages http://downloads.openwrt.org/releases/18.06.1/packages/mipsel_24kc/packages

18.06.8 & 19.07.3 packages repos don't have a ramips target, but only mipsel_24kc

Wikidevi wasn't really helpful with the instructions set, mentioning only MIPS:

Question/Request for confirmation: is the rampis target the same with mipsel_24kc ? Can I just flash 19.07.3 from:
and then use the packages from:



ramips package architecture (except rt288x) = mipsel_24kc

Yes. But you shouldn't have to worry about that anyway, since your /etc/opkg/distfeeds.conf should be updated automatically to the appropriate package location after an upgrade (if you do not keep settings).

Thanks for your quick reply and confirmation!
mips_24kc was a typo and I corrected it in my OP, I meant mipsel_24kc :wink:
