Libpcre no depend

I'm trying to compile and I get

"WARNING: Makefile 'package/feeds/telephony/freeswitch/Makefile' has a dependency on 'libpcre', which does not exist"

I'm running Debian on a Pi


how is this openwrt related ?

He's seeing it while building OpenWrt (as are most of us using main):

$ make -j32 world
Collecting package info: done
WARNING: Makefile 'package/feeds/telephony/freeswitch/Makefile' has a dependency on 'libpcre', which does not exist
# No change to .config

I just ignore it as I don't use freeswitch, and it doesn't affect me.

I have it too, libpcre is deprecated not sure if freeswitch will work with libpcre2.

I use this patch to stop that messages:

diff --git a/net/freeswitch/Makefile b/net/freeswitch/Makefile

I checked we are using the latest freeswitch but I did not research further not using any telephony

Thanks did not catch that :slight_smile:
