Need help flashing custom build of wr740nv4 with wpa2-enterprise


Here in the company I have a bunch of wr740nv4 & v5 with dd-wrt flashed, I tried OpenWRT on one of them and performance boost was enough to warrant a full reflash of all others

But on the test subject, I noticed a lack of wpa2-enterprise, documentation explains that I needed to install the wpad full package instead of the wpad-mini actually installed to have wpa2-ent

BUUUT, no space left on the device

Docs said that I will have to build a custom firmware with my selected packages

And so I did, it compiled successfully, BUUUT no web gui this time (can access by ssh tough)

So I accessed by ssh, tried to install luci with opkg install luci, no space left on the device

If I reflash the original image (This one I have gui without wpa2

Using the imagebuilder, I tried:

make image profile=tl-wr740n-v4 packages=“wpad uhttpd uhttpd-mod-ubus libiwinfo-lua luci-base luci-app-firewall luci-mod-admin-full luci-theme-bootstrap -ip6tables -odhcp6c -odhcpd-ipv6only -ppp -ppp-mod-pppoe -wpad-mini"

Compiles, no gui


make image profile=tl-wr740n-v4 packages=“luci wpad -ip6tables -odhcp6c -odhcpd-ipv6only -ppp -ppp-mod-pppoe -wpad-mini"


And this:

make image profile=tl-wr740n-v4 packages=“wpad luci libc uhttpd luci-mod-admin-full luci-theme-bootstrap luci-app-firewall luci-proto-ppp libiwinfo-lua luci-proto-ipv6 rpcd-mod-rrdns -ip6tables -odhcp6c -odhcpd-ipv6only -ppp -ppp-mod-pppoe -wpad-mini"

Same thing, compiles but no gui

I am not sure where I'm messing up, can someone shine a light for me?

I just need wpa2-enterprise (only removing the other packages to make sure I have enough space for wpad)

Offtopic: When I paste the make command from notepad++ to putty, it does nothing after I press enter (changes the shell from $ to > so I have to ctrl+c to go back to $), it only works when I actually type every single thing there and press enter, why is that?

thanks, have a nice day.
