Newbie here so maybe I'm doing something simple incorrectly.
I have a Linksys ea7300. Following this page I installed the Snapshot Install and it boots fine and I can ssh in.
Luci is not installed by default and I'm trying to get it working. The problem is when I 'opkg install luci' it doesn't install any actual files. It is a metapackage but doesn't install any of the dependent packages.
So I installed from that same webpage the Snapshot Upgrade. Didn't notice any changes except it undid what I had done.
So I installed all the packages listed for offline luci install (however using opkg to do so).
Now it seems closer, I visit http://192.168.1.1/cgi-bin/luci/ and get
The process did not produce any response
Logread gives some promising information such as
Sat Oct 31 14:27:31 2020 daemon.err uhttpd: no file '/usr/share/lua/luci/util.lua'
So presumably this could be fixed if I can figure out which package to install.
But my bigger question is why opkg doesn't seem to install any dependencies on its own?
