cross-compile getting started



  • thanks, i'm compiling it now, do you have a repository where we can upload packages for omega or should i just upload it on my server and post a link?
    also how do you add package that is not listed in menuconfig? for example i would like to add alsa package, i found few on other openwrt repos but can't use them. Do i download source and if i do, where do i put it?

    how do i set the right kernel? I have no idea why 4.1 is used



  • using --force-depends now throws this:
    Configuring kmod-usb-audio.

  • Hi @Igor-Neuhold, you were probably using the development branch of OpenWRT. Can you try compiling with the stable/release branch of OpenWRT? The git repository is here: git://git.openwrt.org/15.05/openwrt.git.

    Please let me know if that works.



  • I had success with compiling the packages for omega.

    Here you can find kmod-sound-core_3.18.23-1_ar71xx.ipk and kmod-usb-audio_3.18.23-1_ar71xx.ipk.

    Install them with

    opkg --force-depends install kmod-sound-core
    opkg --force-depends install kmod-usb-audio

    did you have success with usb sound card audio? I mean, can you play sound with omega :)



  • Hi,

    as I already wrote in this thread, yes I had success and I can hear music via usb audio device.



  • finally some hope :D
    do you know why i get these errors or how to load these modules, can you also upload kmod-input-core?



  • I've uploaded kmod-input-core_3.18.23-1_ar71xx.ipk now in the same dropbox.

    Also I've added a small video (sorry for the poor quality), to see onion omega running squeezelite in autostart and playing music :+1:



  • Thomas you are my hero, i love you :*



  • Is it working now for you?



  • yes, and i have been struggling with this for days now, installed a bunch of crap and now i have to figure out how to clean it all up so i can run my node server with mp3 player, you have no idea how good it felt to hear the sound after days of googling, compiling, installing and removing modules.
    I just hope I'll be able to return the favour some day :)



  • Great to hear, that I could help someone.

    Which node server do you want to use on the omega?



  • i'm writing my own lightweight server for audio streaming, currently i've made frontend client which decodes mp3 file and send buffer to server, now i'm trying to write that buffer to a file and stream it with madplay on omega. Some future plan is to add sd card or some other data storage so i can queue more files or save songs which finish streaming and add them to some playlist
