I have an old TL-740N router and installed openwrt few days ago. I want to limit bandwidth for some user. For that i have to install a new package. But I've no free space to do that.
So I started searching how to remove installed packages. I've found some posts but they are too much confusing for me as a newbie.
what i only know i need linux OS and an image builder.
can anyone please help.
i want to remove everything like ipv6,firewall,sys log etc.Just want to keep only the essentials for keeping the router running.
Alternatively, you could try using a USB key to provide extra storage to give enough space to install the packages you’re after , (this option still a lot to learn, but less than the one above for building an entire image and everything that entails including a Linux VM and build root environment setup)
Heres what I did . You can build your build of openwrt. I am on windows 10. I installed WSL2 then installed ubuntu.
Then when Ubuntu is up and running.
sudo apt install build-essential libncursesw5-dev python unzip
git clone https://git.openwrt.org/openwrt/openwrt.git
./scripts/feeds update -a
./scripts/feeds install -a
The last command will open a menu.
