TP-Link Archer AX23 v1

Hi all,

I've managed to get OpenWrt working in TP-Link Archer AX23 v1. But now when trying to install some software the error goes:

Collected errors:
wfopen: //usr/lib/opkg/info/kmod-crypto-lib-chacha20.control: No space left on device.
wfopen: //usr/lib/opkg/info/kmod-crypto-lib-chacha20.postinst: No space left on device.

opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package wireguard-tools.
opkg_conf_write_status_files: Can't open status file //usr/lib/opkg/status: No space left on device.

But in the software page I have:

In the Status page I have:

My system:

Powered by [LuCI Master (git-23.158.78004-23a246e)]( / [OpenWrt SNAPSHOT (r23579-1c56801dd2)](

So my question is:
Is there anyway to overcome this issue? Can I modify the space?

Already did this but it stayed the same: Rm: no space left. How to remove file without space? - #12 by camelcamro

Thanks in advance for any help!

if there's no USB port, where storage could be extended, you can't, unless you want
to change the flash memory layout, assuming there's free space to be claimed.

132kb isn’t enough space for wireguard.

According to the specs from the router here:

I have "Flash MB: 16" and "RAM MB: 128"

How can I occupy all the space?
It's a brand new router...

openwrt consumes some 8MB or flash, then there's uboot, uboot env, and ART partitions, among others, and you've also installed some packages (dependencies) before you were attempting to install WG.

do cat/proc/mtd if you're curious about the flash layout.

by todays standards, 16MB isn't a lot.

Well, just a follow up.
I've managed to install a new flash file.
The first one with little space:

The one that's working with 95% space free:

So, with this new flash file everything works!

Thanks for all the help!

pretty sure you had just about the same space with whatever openwrt image you previously had installed, until you started adding the extra packages, btw, those 95% aren't out of 16MB.
