"Package requires" during build

I'd thought I'd pass along some enlightenment, to me 8 hours ago, in my unenlightened state:
Here's the scenario. You CLONE openwrt.git . So far so good
You "make" your menuconfig and do a little dance, and press make
Suddenly after the build completes, you want to add packages
(dis editr sucks) NP> :wink: ./scripts feeds update -a; ./scripts/feeds/install -a
PROBLEM> your kernel has created a "magic" string which is
now wrong. ie.

opkg install tc

Collected errors:

  • satisfy_dependencies_for: Cannot satisfy the following dependencies
    for tc:
  • kernel (= 4.9.214-1-2b8f9dfe583e5c09aadd9474da55137f)
  • opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package tc.

!THIS SUCKS BEAVIS! make clean; build again; watch Rachel Maddow, build again. The magic will be compatible the 2nd time. Oeace Out
