I received my AR300M today and have played around with it for a few hours (upgraded to firmware 2.25) - it’s my first exposure to openwrt and I’ve got a problem:
The thing seems to be configured to get packages from a repository hosted by GLI, but it seems that some packages are missing there.
For example: The package “mpd-full” is there, but that depends (among others) on “libcurl” which is missing. So it seems that not only are packages missing, but the package list seems to be inconsistent as it lists modules that cannot be installed because their depencencies cannot be met.
I also miss kernel-modules (eg. “kmod-usb-audio”)…
What is this problem here?
Am I doing something wrong, is this something that only affects the new firmware, or is it because of the architecture?
Is there anything I can do do get around this problem?
We have compiled more than 5000 packages which is a lot. Of course there are always new packages not compiled.
But I don’t know how you checked.
mpd-full and kmod-usb-audio are all in the repo.
You can use our UI, go to “app repo”, the UI will try to load all the packages, which should be more than 5000 packages. If you only have hundreds of packages, it means that you haven’t connected to the Internet or cannot get access to the repo.
