I have updated my openwrt to lede project. Now I want to install strongswan for my vpn configuration.
The package is listed in luci package manager, but installing fails.
Now on the command line opkg update / opkg find strong does not return anything.
Looking at "http://downloads.lede-project.org/snapshots/packages/mips_24kc/packages/" does not show up any strongswan packages.
But looking at "http://downloads.lede-project.org/snapshots/packages/mipsel_24kc/packages/" shows up the strongswan packages.
So is there any difference between mips_24kc and mipsel_24kc?
There is a major difference. mipsel = "little endian" while mips = "big endian" byte order processor architecture.
But actually right now there are lots of strongswan packages in mips_24kc dir:
strongswan-charon_5.5.1-1_mips_24kc.ipk 18-Dec-2016 09:37 172347
strongswan-default_5.5.1-1_mips_24kc.ipk 18-Dec-2016 09:37 1076
strongswan-full_5.5.1-1_mips_24kc.ipk 18-Dec-2016 09:37 1333
strongswan-isakmp_5.5.1-1_mips_24kc.ipk 18-Dec-2016 09:37 1094
strongswan-libtls_5.5.1-1_mips_24kc.ipk 18-Dec-2016 09:37 30941
strongswan-minimal_5.5.1-1_mips_24kc.ipk 18-Dec-2016 09:37 989
strongswan-mod-addrblock_5.5.1-1_mips_24kc.ipk 18-Dec-2016 09:37 3297
Woo thats great!
But they weren't there a hour ago
You likely managed to look at there just when the last automatic buildbot snapshot build was being uploaded (after first removing the previous binaries).
