[Solved] Building custom images with the firmware selector

I'm new to the firmware selector, especially with building custom images.

When I select a device (e.g. C2600) and request a custom image build, I can customize the packages to install.

There is a default list of packages, which I can customize. This default list of packages does not contain the luci package and its dependants.

My question: Do I have to add the luci package manually or is this included automatically?

Good evening,
I understand you ask, as the standard without customization contains these packages, and is missing luci:

base-files busybox ca-bundle dnsmasq-full dropbear firewall4 fstools iwinfo kmod-btmrvl kmod-gpio-button-hotplug kmod-mwifiex-sdio kmod-mwlwifi kmod-nft-offload libc libgcc libustream-wolfssl logd mtd mwlwifi-firmware-88w8964 netifd nftables odhcp6c odhcpd-ipv6only opkg ppp ppp-mod-pppoe procd procd-seccomp procd-ujail uboot-envtools uci uclient-fetch urandom-seed urngd wpad-basic-wolfssl

----- I added LuciSSL and Luci (cause was unsure myself), this is my
customized package list:

added these, below standard base package list, as and example ->

block-mount ca-certificates e2fsprogs fdisk kmod-usb-storage kmod-usb-storage-uas usbutils gdisk irqbalance kmod-fs-ext4 tcpdump-mini transmission-daemon transmission-web wget-ssl luci-app-adblock luci-app-advanced-reboot luci-app-ddns luci-app-sqm luci-app-transmission luci-app-uhttpd luci-app-wireguard luci-mod-admin-full nano openssl-util openwrt-keyring luci-ssl luci drill luci-app-nlbwmon bmon mc igmpproxy qosify luci-app-samba4 luci-app-unbound

of course, you might not want the packages I use, but I added these packages: luci-ssl luci

just to be sure, and it worked all well, creating the images, and it also ads dependencys automaticly ... I added luci-ssl for https support and luci as you can see.

Thanks for your reply.

You have a lot of luci-* packages. I guess, that will include luci as a dependent package.

But what (that was my question), if I do not have any luci-* packages? Is luci included by default or do I have to add the luci package manually?

I made some tests (try & error) and discovered: luci is not automatically included. You have to specify the package explicitly.

Specifying luci-app-statistics is not enough to include luci. Obviously there is no dependency for the package luci defined. I think it should be.

Hey, in my understanding, luci is the webinterface and there is one for http (luci package) and for https its package luci-ssl

I add always both, and set the listening ports to my local lan ports but that depends on the configuration you want / need
