Unknown package 'udev'.


Recommended Posts

I am attempting to connect my android phone(moto z) to Pineapple Tetra.

When I attempt this I get :

root@Pineapple:~# opkg install udev
Unknown package 'udev'.
Collected errors:
 * opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package udev.

Pretty sure this exists.  I saw this on http://www.emuf.cz/download/openwrt/brcm47xx/packages/Packages

Please provide some guidance, new to linux/openwrt

I just discovered that udev is not needed to attach my android.  What I was missing was to place the android in "debugging" mode.  I then got the handshake RSA etc. and adb devices shows my phone.

I think I may write a tutorial about what I did.  Most things I had been reading made assumptions that I did not know about or I misread the information.

My problem will be to uninstall some of the packages that I installed in my effort to discover the issue.  It may be that I do need one of these and it wasn't simply turning on debug.
