I didn't want to crowd the RT3200 thread in the developer section with a simple question like this.. How can I go from the current version of OpenWRT to the latest supported version of 22.03-SNAPSHOT? I don't see a drop-down for 22.03 in auc.
It is not "the latest supported version", it is a "PRE release work in progress" and is still an "unstable" snapshot and can change at least every day. So use at your own risk. It is hidden for a reason.
Also what was offered on my github page is not a communtiy build what-so-ever (you refer to DangoWRT, well, it's not. It's just plain upstream OpenWrt binaries, and using the ImageBuilder to include packages like if it was a release. Lately I've switched to even just a 1:1 copy of the official image)
Edit: dangowrt is just the Github profile I use for OpenWrt (I use different accounts for other projects).
At what point is 22.03 due to become stable and released, and is there anywhere that can show what pull requests will be merged from master in to this branch.
I'm currently tracking master for RT3200 defvices, and its working really well with the current snapshot builds, wondering when it is recomended to switch from snapshot, and how many of the RT3200 relevant changes will make it from master in to this release branch before tagging.
Thanks for this! I have a couple of questions, which I think others may be interested in.
For OpenWrt newbies like me what's the significance of a release candidate vs a release or stable release?
Also how does release use compare with snapshot use for the many of us completely new to OpenWrt based on the RT3200? Hitherto packages would stop being able to be installed based on kernel issue requiring new snapshot install to install new packages or upgrade. How is that affected with release.
Also in terms of upgrading how does that work? Can we restore from saved config?
The final 22.03.0 release will be made from the same 22.03 branch as the rc1 now. There may be more small fixed before the release, but in general the RCs are pretty much the same that the final release will be.
Thanks. It would be nice to have convenience of auc to prevent having to manually install packages. I don't even know which extra ones I installed. Is there a command to find that out (i.e. the ones auc gets for me?).
auc has switches for release stuff:
root@OpenWrt:~# auc --help
auc: Attended sysUpgrade CLI client
Usage: auc [-b <branch>] [-B <ver>] [-c] [-f] [-h] [-r] [-y]
-b <branch> use specific release branch
-B <ver> use specific release version
-c only check if system is up-to-date
-f use force
-h output help
-n dry-run (don't download or upgrade)
-r check only for release upgrades
-F <fstype> override filesystem type
-y don't wait for user confirmation
Please report issues to improve the server:
Certainly seems to make sense to me that if auc can be used for snapshots then it can be used for release candiates or releases too. Or am I missing something?
