After the compiling was done I obtained two files: squashfs-boss-image.cev and initramfs-kernel.bin. On the Bintec web interface I upload the first one and flashed the device.
After the flash I logged in the router with SSH and discovered that it's a snapshot ( OpenWrt 22.03-SNAPSHOT, r19844-67238a3a83) without web interface. I tried to install luci with "opkg install luci" but I get this error "Cannot install package luci."
Where do I go from now? This is my first experience with OpenWrt. How can I compile a release version and upgrade from the snapshot to have the web interface?
I saw that snapshots omit those packages, but installing them should be as simple as opkg install luci, but for some reasons I'm getting an error (Cannot install package luci) and no solution seem to work.
I would like to compile a release image and load it to my device, but if it's not possible with the unofficial code that support my router I would at least like to load the necessary packages in some way.
I'd love to compile them or download from the official site, but I don't know how I can do those things... What I was asking in the original post was how to move from where I am.. should I try to upgrade to a non-snapshot? Should i try to load the necessary packages in some way? How can I accomplish what I should do?
You can't compile a release, only the build bot can do this. All self-compiled images will have problems loading kernel modules. You can try to reproduce the build as much as possible, but the changes in your custom branch are probably for the master branch, not the 22.03 branch (I didn't check that). So you can only build snapshot images.
Installing packages from snapshot on a custom build will work only for a few days after you synchronized the build with the current upstream master. Afterwards, it will differ too much and packages won't install.
What I usually do is:
Checkout the branch
Merge upstream into it
Install the current package feed
Select all required packages during the build
Install an image with all required packages included
