Selected TP-LINK TL-WR941ND as target, but got images for TL-WR741ND ...

Reported by: robert.chan.list@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Backfire 10.03.1
Component: kernel Version: Backfire 10.03

(Same as the previous ticket, just corrected a misleading typo on the Summary field.)

First, I tried to build backfire for my TP-Link TL-WR741ND, it failed with the following error:

.................... arch/mips/ar71xx/built-in.o: In function ap91_eth_init': (.init.text+0x13b8): undefined reference to ar71xx_add_device_dsa' arch/mips/ar71xx/built-in.o: In function ap91_eth_init': (.init.text+0x13b8): relocation truncated to fit: R_MIPS_26 against ar71xx_add_device_dsa' make[5]: * [vmlinux] Error 1 ......................

Then I tried to build it again for my TL-WR941ND (by changing the target to TL-WR941ND and nothing else), the build was successful.

However, very surprisingly, when I look into the bin folder, I found that I actually got the images for TP-Link TL-WR741ND:

md5sums openwrt-ar71xx-rootfs.tar.gz openwrt-ar71xx-root.jffs2-128k openwrt-ar71xx-root.jffs2-64k openwrt-ar71xx-root.squashfs openwrt-ar71xx-root.squashfs-4k openwrt-ar71xx-tl-wr741nd-v1-squashfs-factory.bin openwrt-ar71xx-tl-wr741nd-v1-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin openwrt-ar71xx-uImage-gzip.bin openwrt-ar71xx-uImage-lzma.bin openwrt-ar71xx-vmlinux.bin openwrt-ar71xx-vmlinux.elf openwrt-ar71xx-vmlinux.gz openwrt-ar71xx-vmlinux.lzma packages

In order to confirm this, I removed the entire bin folder, and build again (double-checked that I have selected TL-WR941ND as my target platform, I still got the same thing (i.e. images for TL-WR741ND).

But when I select TL-WR741ND as my target, it failed to build!

Is this a bug? Should I now use the image obtained (i.e. openwrt-ar71xx-tl-wr741nd-v1-squashfs-factory.bin) in my TL-WR741ND or my TL-WR941ND? The last thing I want to see is to load an incorrect image into the router and brick it.

Please help.
