Hi, I want to play around with letsencrypt on librecmc-v1.4.3a. There is an acme package available. However, one oddity: when I am inside menuconfig and do a / search for acme it reports that there is a package under Luci >> Applications called luci-app-acme. However, if I go to that section in menuconfig, there is nothing called that available for selection.
I could not find luci-app-acme in the librecmc package repository. However, it seems that such a package does exist in OpenWRT, under GPLv3 license:
What is the explanation for this package not being available in libreCMC?
Did you add the package feed before running make menuconfig?
./feeds install && ./feeds install -a
Yes I did. As will see if you look in librecmc package feed repo, package does not exist there.
We don't fix issues with upstream packages or provide support for non-core packages. If you want it in core, you are going to have to provide a good reason for it to be added.
It is in the package feed, but it was not packaged correctly upstream.
Ok, it doesn't seem like something that should be in core. At least that is a starting place — maybe I can get the package fixed myself. You implied that you have some idea of what is wrong with the packaging... got any parting hints for me?
@pi31415 maybe it would be more appropriate to ask such questions at the openwrt forum / mailing lists, in example - https://forum.openwrt.org/viewforum.php?id=2 - "Developers Only" section of OpenWRT forum. And if this issue would be fixed upstream, then a fix will also reach us at librecmc some time later... but if you need this software right now, it could be that you don't even need to package it: just install the cross-compilation tools to your main PC with Linux, compile the sources for the architecture of your router's CPU, then transmit the compiled binaries to the router's filesystem through scp and after connecting to the router through ssh (if you have done everything correctly) you will be able to launch your compiled binaries like any other program at your main PC with Linux
