Installing f2fs file system for USB sotrage and SSD disks

Hi,

I have LEDE installed on my router with kernel version 4.4.49. I am trying to add f2fs file system for connecting external USB storages. I am executing the following commands:

opkg update

opkg install kmod-fs-ext4

When I execute the second command, I get the following error message:

Installing kmod-fs-ext4 (4.9.20-1) to root...
Downloading http://downloads.lede-project.org/snapshots/targets/ipq806x/generic/packages/kmod-fs-ext4_4.9.20-1_arm_cortex-a15_neon-vfpv4.ipk
Collected errors:

  • satisfy_dependencies_for: Cannot satisfy the following dependencies for kmod-fs-ext4:
  • kernel (= 4.9.20-1-97cfb144fbc3015a5e22968ccfb5ec24) * kernel (= 4.9.20-1-97cfb144fbc3015a5e22968ccfb5ec24) * kernel (= 4.9.20-1-97cfb144fbc3015a5e22968ccfb5ec24) * kernel (= 4.9.20-1-97cfb144fbc3015a5e22968ccfb5ec24) *
  • opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package kmod-fs-ext4.

From the error messages, it seems that opkg is trying to download a package which depends on a newer kernel version than the one I have on my router. Any advice how to solve this issue?

Despite dependancies one mismatch in your description ext4 <> f2fs

You will need to install the f2fs modules and tools :

opkg update; opkg install kmod-fs-f2fs e2fsprogs
