Loading package feed produces empty .index file

Hello, script kiddie here.

I am trying to cross compile this.
The proper SDK for the target is loaded, prereqs are installed.
feeds update -a runs fine, no errors.
same for make menuconf.

when issuing feeds install it returns that the package was not found.

looking at the corresponding .index file shows that it is empty.

am I missing something or is this not meant to happen at all?


the repository you linked is not a LEDE/OpenWrt package feed so you cannot use it as-is. You need to package the software; either by writing a LEDE/OpenWrt Makefile for it or by cross compiling it manually with the SDK toolchain (see https://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/devel/crosscompile)
