Maybe I'm missing something here:

I have a Mark IV with the 3.7.6 kernel. I have a USB GPS puck (pl2303). To use this I need to install the kmod-usb-serial-pl2303 package off of opkg. On older versions (3.3.8) of the kernel this package installed fine but for some reason this package can only be installed on kernel version 3.7.7-1. Where is the right kernel build version of this driver for a Pineapple with kernel 3.7.6? Do I just need to build it myself? It just seems odd that the repository has packages that are not compatible with the current stable build.

Any help or guidance would be appreciated. Thanks all!

Hey LevelUp,

Here you go (see attached). Make sure that you run firmware 2.7.7.

You are right, the repositories do give us trouble if they have kernel requirements. That is due to the fact that OpenWRT doesn't keep their snapshots in sync with the trunk.

This is something we are currently working on, supplying our own repository - at least for the latest stable release.

Best,

Thanks for the quick response, Sebkinne!

Unfortunaly it is still saying that I do not meet requirements:

Did I run the install right or am I still missing something?

Are you running the Dev version firmware 2.7.7?

I think Seb means you must be running this firmware to have the latest kernel, although having said that it seems you are using to correct kernel according to your uname -a

Hold on guys, I'll have a fix out soon. 2.8.0 will premier very soon with a fixed repository that will eliminate all of these issues.

There will be one repository for our stable release and that will fix the opkg install kmod-* issues.

For now you can install using --force-depends - it will still work, but can cause issues in the future..

Anyway, please give this just a bit of time!
