Installing openwrt diffutils package

Post by agrohe21 »

I see in opkg.confg, we have src/gz openwrt_18.06.5_packages http://downloads.openwrt.org/releases/1 ... 3/packages

and diffutils is in that directory. Why would diffutils not install and/or how can we install diffutils with Gargoyle 1.12 on WRT32x?

Change the src url to HTTPS might fix it.
http://lantisproject.com/downloads/gargoyle_ispyisail.php for the latest releases
Please be respectful when posting. I do this in my free time on a volunteer basis.

Well, it appears to install but no diff in /usr/bin. there is a diff3 but that relies on diff also.

Any other ideas?

:idea:

Code: Select all

gpkg update && gpkg install diffutils
and it should be there.

EDIT:
diff is a link. Refers to /usr/bin/gnu-diff
