I realize that this forum is for OpenWrt, as it is the progenitor of Entware, I thought someone here might be able to assist with my issue.
I am running into an issue trying to build Entware tools. I have all the build dependancies satisfied except for python 2.7, which is no longer available in the current repository.
Updated list of available packages in /opt/var/opkg-lists/entware
I attempted to install the archived version of python 2.7, but opkg complains with the following:
curl --output python_2.7.17-2_armv7-2.6.ipk http://bin.entware.net/armv7sf-k2.6/archive/python_2.7.17-2_armv7-2.6.ipk
Unknown package 'python'.
- pkg_hash_fetch_best_installation_candidate: Packages for python found, but incompatible with the architectures configured
- opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package python.
arch all 100
arch armv7-2.6 160
Python3 & dependancies install without issue:
Depends: libc, libssp, librt, libpthread, python3-light, python3-unittest, python3-ncurses, python3-ctypes, python3-pydoc, python3-logging, python3-decimal, python3-multiprocessing, python3-codecs, python3-gdbm, python3-sqlite3, python3-xml, python3-distutils, python3-email, python3-openssl, python3-urllib, python3-cgi, python3-cgitb, python3-dbm, python3-lzma, python3-asyncio
Status: install user installed
Description: This package contains the (almost) full Python install.
It's python3-light + all other packages.
I find it ironic that Entware no longer provides the required python 2.7 package(s) that is required to build Entware tools.
Your guidance is greatly appreciated.
