Rtorrent gui fails for luasec

Hi. I am running OpenWrt 18.06.1 in my box and i would like to add rtorrent with gui. i have followed the tutorial from here:luci-app-rtorrent apart from the bit where the 0.1.3 version is not existed and used 0.1.5. Once i download it and try to install it i have the following error:

root@OpenWrt:/tmp# opkg install /tmp/luci-app-rtorrent_0.1.5_all.ipk
Installing luci-app-rtorrent (0.1.5) to root...
Collected errors:
 * satisfy_dependencies_for: Cannot satisfy the following dependencies for luci-app-rtorrent:
 *      luasec *
 * opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package luci-app-rtorrent.

unfortunately the opkg install luasec fails as well.

any ideas on how to overcome this problem, please?

And what about the first command?

thanks for your replies. if by first command you mean opkg update? if yes, then it has been always issued before any of the installs or searchs

There should not be any problem installing luasec on OpenWrt 18.06.1.
So the most reasonable explanation is some issue with opkg update.
That's why we need to make sure you are using correct repository.

opkg update; opkg install luasec

Unknown package 'luasec'.

I see, there's no luasec for i386_pentium:

Hmmm, not knowing what device you're running, is there a reason you're not using the x86_64 architecture?

From the above link, it looks like luasec is available on the 64-bit architecture.


I have an ALIX 2D13 and i did follow the instructions from
for sure my device does not support 64bits. Is there a way to have the aforementioned packets in my device?

Any ideas please?

How much MB of free space you have on your router when I try to install rtorrent , when I install in with additional usb disk it took about 15MB but it says only 2.7 MB needed but it is a lie :slightly_smiling_face:

3 years later, the issue's hopefully solved ,)
