Hey I just started using openwrt again after a long hiatus on my new Linksys EA7500v2. Seems like it's only supported on snapshot for now but that's probably fine for my purposes.
I updated my packages with opkg update and then ran the following command to try to install tmux:
root@OpenWrt:~# opkg install tmux
Unknown package 'tmux'.
* opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package tmux.
But when I tried googling it I found this hit on the package manager
which seems to indicate that it exists, so what am I missing here?
Looking around more it seems like that package is maybe broken in snapshot which is why I can't download it.
Found this fail log: https://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/faillogs/mips_24kc/packages/tmux/compile.txt
Showing an error during the build:
checking for event.h... no
configure: error: "libevent not found"
Makefile:45: recipe for target '/builder/shared-workdir/build/sdk/build_dir/target-mips_24kc_musl/tmux-3.1c/.configured_68b329da9893e34099c7d8ad5cb9c940' failed

@scurvybob, welcome to the community!
Did you run
opkg update first?
The buildbot has failed to build the package.
It's more or less normal for snapshots.
The OP can try again later, or try to build it himself.
Thanks @lleachii. I said in the OP that I ran opkg update.
Looking today that build failure I noticed before is gone.
One more opkg update and tmux installed.
