    Please help

    Best regards

  • Yeah, I can't get nano anymore either.

  • @Adrian-Aguirre @oliolioli For example on FW v0.3.2 b218 edit the '/etc/opkg/distfeeds.conf' file and enable / uncomment the fifth (5th) line:
    src/gz openwrt_packages http://downloads.openwrt.org/releases/18.06-SNAPSHOT/packages/mipsel_24kc/packages

    root@Omega-99A5:/# opkg list | grep -i nano
    nano - 3.2-1 - Nano (Nano's ANOther editor, or Not ANOther editor) is an enhanced clone of the Pico text editor.
    root@Omega-99A5:/# opkg list | grep -i php7

    BTW There isn't / I can not find 'php7-mod-mcrypt'.

    You could edit '/etc/opkg/distfeeds.conf' - for example - whith vi.

    If you are not familiar with vi than you could run these commands - for example -

    • to enable / uncomment the fifth (5th) line:
      sed -i '5s/^#//' /etc/opkg/distfeeds.conf
      opkg update
    • or to disable / comment out the fifth (5th) line:
      sed -i '5s/^/#/' /etc/opkg/distfeeds.conf
      opkg update
    • You could "restore" the original file with:
      cp /etc/opkg/distfeeds.conf.new /etc/opkg/distfeeds.conf
      opkg update

    Good luck.

    Hi @György-Farkas

    I add the next line

    add your custom package feeds here



    opkg update
    opkg install nano

    Installing nano (3.2-1) to root...
    Downloading http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/packages/mipsel_24kc/packages//nano_3.2-1_mipsel_24kc.ipk
    Collected errors:

    • opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package nanoopkg.
    • opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package install.
    • satisfy_dependencies_for: Cannot satisfy the following dependencies for nano:
    •  libncurses6 *
    • opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package nano.


    Best regards

  • @Adrian-Aguirre Did you read my post? I wrote (if you want to install nano):

    • enable / uncomment the appropriate line of the '/etc/opkg/distfeeds.conf' file
      for example on FW v0.3.2 b218 this is the fifth (5th) line
    • run opkg update
    • I'm sorry, I forgot to write (because I thought it's obvious)
      run opkg install nano

    And I really did not find the OpenWrt 18.06 'php7-mod-mcrypt' package (2019-03-11).

    Best regards. 🙂

    I was interested in uncovering where it went and found this in the OpenWrt 18.06 php7 package changelogs for the php7.2.0 commit:

    Also drop mcrypt module as it's deprecated.

    php7: update to 7.2.0

    So @Adrian-Aguirre I suppose you will have to review why it was deprecated and what the current best practises are around using the mcrypt functionality.
    Deprecated features in PHP 7.1.x
    Migrating from PHP 7.1.x to PHP 7.2.x -> Other changes

  • @Adrian-Aguirre You may modify also the '/etc/opkg/customfeeds.conf' file and can use also OpenWrt 'snapshots' of course.

    Installing OpenWrt development snapshots
    In a nutshell:
    Q: I am a standard consumer, do I want a development snapshot firmware?
    A: No!

    In detail: Development builds / snapshots

    nano Version: 3.2-1
    Dependencies: libc, libssp, libncurses

    So - I think - it's much more simple to use the usual method.

    Good luck.
