Finally getting round to upgrading to the newer merged OpenWRT-18.06.1 from LEDE-17.01.4 r3560-79f57e422d and would be grateful for a quick sanity check as its been a while since I've done anything to the router/LEDE/OpenWRT
An upgrade from OpenWrt 15.05 or LEDE 17.01 to OpenWrt 18.06 is supported with the help of the sysupgrade utility which will also attempt to preserve the configuration. A configuration backup is advised nonetheless when upgrading to OpenWrt 18.06.
Sounds pretty straight-forward that a config backup followed by flashing openwrt-18.06.1-mvebu-cortexa9-linksys-wrt1900acs-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin will do the trick but wanted to check as I recall reading a while back when 18.06 was announced that a fresh flash of squashfs was required, but this doesn't seem to be the case.
Also, is there any simple way to list all packages I've installed so I can start building a set of bash scripts to ease installation? I know there is
opkg list-installed but that seems to spit out absolutely everything thats installed on the system by default and I'm looking to get a short script written to install the additional packages I want.
Something along the lines of...
#!/bin/ash opkg update opkg adblock openvpn ...
