Python3-pip is not found in the chaos calmer feeds of OpenWrt

Hi everyone,

I am trying to run a python application inside a device whose OS is OPENWRT with Chaos Calmer packages configured inside the feeds.conf of the device (

I have successfully installed python3-light but when I am trying to install python3-pip its saying package not found. Please help me to sort this issue

Chaos Calmer is 6 years old by now and hasn't been supported for the last 4 years, if you want current software (and you do, for security reasons alone), you need to upgrade.


Thank you for your response.

Is that the reason why I am not able to find python3-pip packages.

the reason is it wasn't released/packaged for Chaos Calmer.

You running a 6 year old version obviously doesn't help :wink:


Thank you.

Since I am new to this OPENWRT I need a small clarification when I checked the version of the device using the following command I got the following output :
"Teltonika RUT9 series 2020"

When I checked the cpuinfo I got the following output

Can you please let me know what I need to do upgrade my device.

There are 19.07.7 images avaliable for RUT900

EDIT: And snapshot images for RUT955


Thank you for your reply.

Hope so if I flash the new image my device works fine.

Just a word of caution to your dreams.
You have an old slow MIPS device with only 16 MB flash. You will not have much free flash space to install python stuff to it...

The RUT955 is officially supported.
Best is to build an image yourself, from most recent source, because of at least one fix (RS485) . There are two variants of the 955, but in case you have bought the RUT not too long ago, target is "Teltonika RUT955" only, NOT "Teltonika RUT955 H7V3C0" .
I am supporting such a custom build for a commercial system.
(Custom build should enable you to include the python stuff, BTW).

the target device we are using is Teltonika RUT955 only and the Firmware version is [RUT9XX_R_00.06.07.7]. Can you please help me to custom build

This is a good beginning, when building your own image:
