netdiscover discovers nothing (r42321)

Reported by: juanriccio@… Owned by: developers
Priority: low Milestone: Chaos Calmer 15.05
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: netdiscover, scan finding no device Cc:


Chaos Calmer r42321

Via LuCI: Network -> Configure Diagnostics -> Network Device Scan -> Perform Device Scans (this can take a few minutes)

The operation takes no time at all, but no device is found, even though the LAN is populated with lots of devices.

The scan is configured on the LAN (bridged ethernet/radio) interface, 192.168..../24. I can't find the configuration file, but I'll upload it (or any other info) if asked.

i'm pretty sure netdiscover isn't installed as it's not in the github packages feed

Aha, thanks for your answer, I see!

Netdiscover was included in my previous build (r38350), and I haven't changed my .config, so I thought it would still be there. How could I go about including in this build? How do I add the proper feed (if such a feed exists)?
