Install dnsmasq-full over dnsmasq

i want dnsmasq to be the authority for my made-up home domain. it was suggested that the dnsmasq-full package would do this. can i install dnsmasq-full without uninstalling dnsmaq? if i uninstall dnsmasq will i loose my configuration? i am very new to openwrt as you can tell.

Check whether you really need it or not.

No, and there's no need to keep both.

It should be fine, but anyway:

well i did install dnsmasq-full without uninstalling dnsmasq, received errors so i ticked where it says to overwrite files from otther packages and then instead a lot of errors just received 1 that seem not severe...

the question is: in order to tidy up things: should i unninstall both and reintall just one ?

as u also can see i am also starting in opennwrt (coming from freshtomato cause kernel old and cant use wireguard for my work).

Thank you for your time, really exited with this open source ideology and comunity
