Hitting Submit and Save/Apply doesn't save in LuCI 18.06 branch/18.06-rc1

Hey all,

I'm running LuCI openwrt-18.06 branch (git-18.163.60998-c379f00) / OpenWrt 18.06-SNAPSHOT r7074-b72bced.

When I edit and save the /etc/rc.local file via LuCI (i.e. on the System > Startup page)...hitting Submit has no effect.

Current workaround: edit file on the command prompt

Any ideas?

Upgrading identical devices, issue only occurs on one. Upgraded both to LuCI Master (git-18.169.62979-e380cf5) / OpenWrt SNAPSHOT r7294-5684d08 Master, no issue.

This issue persists in LuCI openwrt-18.06 branch (git-18.163.60998-c379f00) / OpenWrt 18.06.0-rc1 r7090-d2aa3a1b62

Is there perhaps a change in the LuCI config file that might cause this?
EDIT: I compared/ etc/config/luci and made it identical with a fresh flashed device and rebooted, same issue.

Could the file size of /etc/rc.local possibly cause this?

I don't have this issue on devices that have been:

  • Flashed new (reset to default)
  • Never had master flashed

I'm trying to reproduce the issue on another device...

The Custom Firewall page also exhibits the same issue.
