From https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-developer/toolchain/using_the_sdk#compile_packages :
After the compilation is finished, the generated .ipk files are placed in the bin/packages and bin/targets directories inside the directory you extracted the SDK into.
Is there a way to change that
bin/packages subdir the packages placed into?
You can define an alternative for the "bin" directory with the option "CONFIG_BINARY_FOLDER" (use "make menuconfig" and search for it. It is hidden behind "Advanced configuration options")
Hmm, I don't see it in the "Advanced configuration options".
Search in menuconfig gives following:
Symbol: BINARY_FOLDER [=]
Type : string
Defined at Config-build.in:2221
Did you really enable "Advanced configuration options" (CONFIG_DEVEL)?
Symbol: DEVEL [=y]
Type : bool
Defined at Config-build.in:2213
Here is how the menu looks like for me:
