#5907 closed defect (wontfix)

brcm47xx package index does not work for mipsel

Reported by: lkollar Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc:

Description

On a WL500gP running Kamikaze (r16853) opkg refuses to install packages from the http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/trunk/brcm47xx/packages/ page. The error message is:

 * Packages were found, but none compatible with the architectures configured

Even though the above mentioned directory contains files both for brcm47xx and mipsel architectures, Packages does only have information about the brcm47xx packages. The only way to install from the snapshot repo is to use the full url to the correct mipsel package for the board, but dependencies are not handled that way.

Had the same problem.

Solution from http://lists.openmoko.org/nabble.html#nabble-td3720726:

Add to /etc/opkg.conf the following line
arch brcm47xx 1

Where 'brcm47xx' is the architecture and '1' is a 'priority' (whatever that means).

Thanks, this solved the problem.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

We decided switch the use of the opkg architecture field from the architecture to the target name because the toolchain/etc used can vary between targets of the same architecture. This was done in [17063]. Shortly before that change ([16604] and [16605]) we switched from in kernel softfloat to toolchain based FPU emulation, breaking ABI compatiblity. In other words, old and new trunk revisions isn't a good idea, it may work, but no guarantees we won't change something on you while you aren't looking.
