Hi, today is my first openwrt day. I managed to install it on a TP-Link Archer C7 AC1750 v1.1, by flashing the factory and systemupgrade binaries linked to from the page below:
I managed to have an ssh connection, and executed
opkg update opkg install luci-ssl
which worked fine.
I then wanted to install tcpdump, but that failed:
root@router001:~# opkg install tcpdump Unknown package 'tcpdump'. Collected errors: * opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package tcpdump.
I'm now following build instructions from the page below:
building from the source branch that seems to correspond to the installed binary:
commit cf5e5204d976be00618f809b90c9c2156657903a (HEAD -> openwrt-19.07, origin/openwrt-19.07)
Following the instructions however led to warnings that are not mentioned on that page, such as:
WARNING: Makefile 'package/network/utils/iproute2/Makefile' has a dependency on 'libcap', which does not exist.
That didn't look too promising, but I proceeded anyway. The compilation is taking quite some time..
Is there an easier way to install the package?
