Nightly image generation and Image Generator build broken(?) for Zyxel NBG6716 due to missing kmod-rtc-pcf8563

Reported by: AdamW Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: zyxel nbg6716 pcf8563 Cc:


Hi, there. I'm trying to load OpenWRT on a new router, a Zyxel NBG6716. The wiki indicates there should be support:

however, the images it mentions do not seem to be generated for Barrier Breaker RC1 or RC2, or the nightlies:

So I grabbed the Image Builder for the latest nightly, and tried with that. "make image PROFILE=NBG6716" fails with:

  • opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package kmod-rtc-pcf8563.

and indeed:

[adamw@adam OpenWrt-ImageBuilder-ar71xx_nand-for-linux-x86_64]$ ls packages/kmod-rtc*
ls: cannot access packages/kmod-rtc*: No such file or directory

I poked about in the source enough to find the NBG6716 profile and see that yes, it really does want that kernel module:

but I wasn't smart enough to figure out exactly what decides the list of modules built for the Image Builder, or find build logs that might indicate that the build of the module was failing or something. I'm guessing whatever builds the RCs and nightlies uses the same process, so that's why the images for this router are missing, but I couldn't figure out how to confirm that either.

Can anyone help? :) Thanks!

ImageBuilder looks good with the current nightly, thanks! It built me some images, now to see if they work :)

There's still no pre-built image in the nightly snapshot dir, though - not sure if that's a bug or just a config choice someone made.

For some reason no image is being generated for this model. As per forum thread I re-open this bug so that you can investigate what is going wrong.

I note that there are still no images being created for Zyxel NBG-6716
