#12629 closed defect (wontfix)

"opkg list" prints "Killed" after "opkg update"

Reported by: wgtdd01@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: opkg Cc:


Freshly installed 12.09-rc1, from, on Linksys WRT54G v3.1.

The command 'opkg list' works as expected until 'opkg update' is run. Afterwords 'opkg list' prints 'Killed' or crashes the router.

You're running out of memory, there is not much we can do about it.
In general we do not recommend running 12.09 on legacy broadcom hardware.

You can try activate zRAM

comment:3 Changed 5 years ago by anonymous

If configured/activated in kernel-config,

main menu ->

device drivers ->
Staging drivers ->
"Compressed RAM block device support"

we activate a small (4 megabytes) partition in RAM,
which then acts as a normal swap-partition:

Systems with 16 megabytes RAM (or lower) are then
useable again, which is really a pity at the moment,
e.g. we cannot use 'opkg list | grep foo' at time of
writing on these devices without triggering the oom-killer.

Next step will be a uci-configureable disksize.
