Local install package, no size and description


I just managed to create my first package. LEDs and butom driver for my PC Engines APU1 (kmod-leds-apu1). :slight_smile:

But there are no size and description information in the the Web GUI. What have I done wrong?
I installed it with opkg install /tmp/kmod-leds-apu1_4.14.209-1_x86_64.ipk.

I believe size and description (and several other fields) are stored in the Packages file, which if you installed it manually you would not have.

Package: busybox

 It slices, it dices, it makes Julian Fries.

This is what gets downloaded when you do an opkg update, but again, you installed it manually so you don't have this information.

You should be able to look at the contents of the Packages file in your build_root yourself to check that the contents are what you expect.


I think you are correct.
When I look in my router on installed packages, before i run Update lists... all packages are missing size and description.
