Topic: download ipx for ipq806x kernel 3.4.103

Hi guys, I need to install kmod-cfg80211 on openwrt.  Kernel is 3.4.103, platform is ipq806x.  Anyone know how can I download the kmod-cfg80211 needed? Thank you.

There has never been a LEDE (or OpenWrt-) version for IPQ806x with kernel 3.4.x. What you're seeing is an ancient OpenWrt fork provided as SDK by QCA to its customers to butcher up for their needs, only genuine with their own external kernel and its binary ...companions. If you want 'source' for that, you'll have to dig out the (most likely incomplete) GPL tarball for your router.

Thank you so much for quick reply. The system indeed work with a QCA hardware. I download OpenWrt-SDK-15.05-rc1-ipq806x* from
downloads.openwrt.org/chaos_calmer/15.05-rc1/ipq806x/generic/
Is it a cross compiler? If it is, can I use it to compile the needed file if I can download kmod-cfg80211 source code?

Yes, it contains a cross toolchain.
No, you can't use it to build anything for QCA's proprietary 3.4.103 kernel - on the one hand CC was based on kernel 3.18 (including the basically non-existing ipq806x support), on the other hand it is based on ath10k - not QCA's non-free ath_pci.

But current LEDE HEAD has pretty good support for several IPQ40xx and IPQ806x boards, which should be extandable to your needs (based on kernel 4.9.x at the moment).
