Where do pre-downloaded packages go for image builder?

For days, I've been trying to generate a build but keep getting;
Unable to open feeds configuration at /clients/test-v2/scripts/feeds line 48.

I decided to download all of the packages but I'm not finding any information on where I need to put them in the build env. There is a packages folder so I put it all in there but still get the error so obviously am missing something.

Can someone shed some light?

https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-developer/build-system/start#directory_structure

I found this when digging around but it doesn't explain how the packages should be stored in the build environment.

package - is for exactly that - packages. In an OpenWrt firmware, almost everything is an ipk, a software package which can be added to the firmware to provide new features or removed to save space.

You should fix the issue reported by the error. Even if you download packages manually nothing will work because that script is indexing the packages and without a package index the image builder does not work. I don't understand why you decided to download packages manually.

Looking ad the source of master snapshot (which may or may not be the version you use) https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/blob/master/scripts/feeds#L48
Seems to be a parsing issue in the package names or feed names. Did you add external feeds?
What lines did you add in the feeds.conf file?
What image builder are you using (so people can try it out and get the same error you get and do some troubleshooting first hand)?

No, I've not added/changed feeds.
I downloaded the packages manually because some threads suggest doing so and I was trying different things so I could solve this.

This problem has been around for countless versions. This is not the first time I've had it.

If you mean this;

./scripts/feeds update -a
./scripts/feeds install -a

I didn't bother posting that I did that thinking it would be obvious.

This all started when I was trying to build a fw using my old 18.06.2. Two packages will not install and I see this error.
Building images...
Unable to open feeds configuration at /clients/18.06.2-ramips-mt300n-v2/scripts/feeds line 48.

Again, trying to rebuild it leads to this;
$ ./scripts/feeds update -a
Unable to open feeds configuration at ./scripts/feeds line 48.

So then I decided to download the latest version, 19.07.7 but I get the same and in fact, even stranger results. I looked first, there is no feeds.conf file so I assumed I have to generate that using the above commands but then get the error.

What other info can I provide?

These are not image builder commands.
Those commands should be used only if you are using full buildsystem https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-developer/build-system/start and compiling everything from source.

Image Builder is just downloading and assembling pre-compiled packages from the repositories.
It is a different thing.

Did you check the tutorial to use Image Builder?

As a general rule, if you ask for help you need to write exactly what commands you are sending, so people helping you can follow the exact steps.

Ok that confirms you are using Image Builder, and not compiling from source.
The package feeds for Image Builder is in a file called "repositories.conf", as mentioned in the documentation I linked above.

I am providing all I know right now and is why I'm asking in the forums since I cannot solve it on my own so far. I've been fairly detailed, just don't want to fill the thread with useless junk that no one wants to read through to find the answer.

I never said I was building form source, I said image builder :).

I found those commands in an openwrt article talk about using image builder.
However, I now see I didn't look closely enough, it's talking about building an image, not image builder. Either way, that didn't help since it wasn't the problem as you said.

So, now that we are in sync, yes, the repositories file is there but still doesn't answer why I'm getting that error or how to fix it. The tutorial/s do not explain how to get past this otherwise, I would have fixed it by now. I don't usually ask for help unless I'm stumped and I am.

Btw, the folder where all packages are downloaded is "dl"
for example with the x86 target image builder
openwrt-imagebuilder-21.02.0-rc3-x86-64.Linux-x86_64/dl

I am providing all I know right now .. I've been fairly detailed,

I have asked you to write the full steps and commands you used before you got the error.

Also can you mention what image builder you used, write the full file name so I can download it and repeat the steps you did to see if I can reproduce the issue.

I've been using Image Builder (and building from source) for years and I've never seen that error, I think you wrote a wrong command somewhere.

just don't want to fill the thread with useless junk that no one wants to read through to find the answer.

We have a "highlight solution post" functionality in the forum that highlights and bumps the post marked as "solution" under the first post.

I see that I didn't share that into. It was in another post so sorry, getting a little mixed up here.

I've seen the error in countless image builder versions. I've only used the source a few times, mostly always the image builder. In the 19.07.7 version, I'm not getting the feeds warning so let's just skip that. I can start a new post specific to that when I see it again.

My question was about packages and where do they go if I download them all first so I can build offline.
Now that you mention the dl directory, I do see the two packages that are giving me the problem.

The reason is from another question I had posted. I tried to delete it to lessen confusion but cannot.

I use a files/ directory where I put my pre-configured config files, for example, vnstat.
I have vnstat in the list of packages for my build. I see vnstat getting downloaded, installed and enabled.
Once I boot the fw, there is no vnstat package installed and my config files were overwritten.

I see the packages getting downloaded, installed and the services enabled but once I boot the device with the new build, those packages are missing. That's why I wanted to pre-download them.

So they are being downloaded already. Almost as if I said that the problem is elsewhere.

Why are you acting all self righteous? Who cares when someone that is asking for help is wrong. They would not be asking if they had the same level of knowledge. It's not helpful to anyone finding this thread your acting this way. I told you I got mixed up with the things I've posted and am experiencing.

Your answer doesn't help in any way what so ever. My question is why are the packages showing as being installed yet aren't on the device when I check using opkg list-installed.

because I asked three times to get a full list of commands you are running to generate this firmware image with image builder and you still don't do that

No need to get all puffy over that. If you read, I also said there was no point because I mixed up the question. There is no reason to get this way. Either help someone or don't help them, no one is making you do anything.

Besides, now you are simply wrecking my question. I am still trying to solve the problem.

it's annoying when people you are trying to help can't cooperate and think they know better

Can you please stop the personal attacks and the knowledge bullying. I sure don't need it nor anyone else who will find this thread.

I have never, not even once said that I know more than anyone or that I would be non cooperative. I would not have asked the question in these forums if I could have found my own answer.

In terms of the feeds error, I too have been using image builder for many years and have seen the feeds error countless times. In fact, I'm surprised you even asked me about it considering that the forums are filled with the question asking about this problem.

Look below, I'll show you. Yes, it's an old version because I don't always need the latest so was using 18.06.2. It doesn't seem to happen in version 19.07.7 but with that version, I have the missing packages which is why I originally posted this question.

Calculating checksums...

you stated you use files and there is no FILES in that command...

did you or did you not use FILES on the image that has issues?


what is with the odd paths here;

are you hardlinking or something?

just showing this in your OP would have saved us all alot of time...

which thread is your favourite out of this one and your other one?

You were ignoring my request and stating that "it is not important" to solve your issue.
This is "not cooperating" and "thinking you know more than me".

notice how wulfy also said
"just showing this in your OP would have saved us all alot of time..."
and Stangri post in the other thread.

so it's not just me trolling you

finally. Although you did not say where you downloaded the image builder from. I assume you used official release builds.

Also as Wulfy also said, there is no FILES=... variable in that command so you are not integrating any external config in this image.

so I pulled down the image builder from https://downloads.openwrt.org/releases/18.06.2/targets/ramips/mt76x8/

and as you see below yes I see also the same error as you

yours:
Unable to open feeds configuration at /clients/18.06.2-ramips-mt300n-v2/scripts/feeds line 48.

mine (just different folders):

So I'll poke around a bit and see if I can find the issue, or even if this is a problem at all, it may just be a harmless error.

Seems like he extracted the image builder in
/clients/18.06.2-ramips-mt300n-v2

and the Copying xxxxxx is just the Image Builder that is pulling the packages from the dl folder instead than downloading again.

For example if I run again the same command as above, my imagebuilder also fetches the packages from the dl folder

roger... makes sense now... apologies...

You were ignoring my request and stating that "it is not important" to solve your issue.
This is "not cooperating" and "thinking you know more than me".

Never ignored anything, you started making it personal and it became hard to focus on facts and the technology instead of the childish games. You keep trying to find 'weird' things that I'm doing and if I said 'not important', I mean I'm trying not to complicate the post with too many details that are not very relevant.

When I post, I always post with as much detail as is relevant in case it's a simple fix. No one wants to find a thread they have to read dozens and dozens of pages to get to some point. That's why I ended up posting here in fact, got tired of reading post after post and not finding answers.

Can we stop with the personal attacks now and get on with the question?

I have a little tree structure that I maintain different versions in, that's why you see /clients. Not relevant.

I use the files directory when I want to have custom configs. I didn't need it to show the problem in this post so didn't use it as it is non relevant.

I usually use a little script so I don't forget which packages I want to have or not have installed but in this case, to keep things simple, I used the command line so I could show you the error. Non relevant.

are you hardlinking or something?
just showing this in your OP would have saved us all alot of time...

Just showing what? There is no hard linking, there is nothing unusual about what I'm doing.
I download the openwrt IB package, untar it, rename it to the version so I know what it is, go into it and generate what I need.

Although you did not say where you downloaded the image builder from. I assume you
used official release builds.

I would have mentioned if I got it from somewhere else. In fact, I would have then tried an official repo version before posting to see if there was a difference.

and the Copying xxxxxx is just the Image Builder that is pulling the packages from the dl
folder instead than downloading again.

I don't know what you mean by this. I have not changed anything, paths, scripts, have not added packages manually, nothing. I simply downloaded the IB package, untared it and ran the command I showed you to build the fw.

I did find some posts from others suggesting you download the entire package tree and put it into the build environment (or what ever it's called for IB) so they would not need to be downloaded and that is all my original question was asking about.

which thread is your favourite out of this one and your other one?

They are two different questions but somehow related, maybe.

This post was simply asking where do you put manually downloaded packaged. That's all I wanted to know so I could see why the packages are not showing up after I build the fw. I wondered if pre-downloading all of the packages would make any difference. I've not tried that yet because it is still not clear to me where you would put all of the packages.

The other post was asking why when I build using 19.x.x, I can see the packages I want being downloaded, installed and enabled but when I fire up the fw, those packages do not exist but some of their config files do.
