Installation Error OpenWRT

I’m trying to set up for an OPENWRT router (OpenWrt 22.03.0-rc4) and I’m getting

Signature check passed.
Package remoteit (4.17.6) installed in root is up to date
Configuring remoteit.
remoteit: Error: Unknown architecture "arm_cortex-a7_neon-vfpv4"

Collected errors:
 * pkg_get_installed_files: Failed to open //usr/lib/opkg/info/mdns-publish-discover.list: No such file or directory.
 * pkg_run_script: package "remoteit" postinst script returned status 1.
 * opkg_configure: remoteit.postinst returned 1

The router is listed with ARM Cortex A7 processor. Any ideas?

It seems like the installer cannot detect the correct package to use.

Running the following command will let us know if we support the architecture and OS:

curl -s | sh

This is an example of the output:

From the above you can see we do have a match for arm_cortex-a7+neon-vfpv4

we can install it manually using the following command:

wget R3_ARCHITECTURE='arm_cortex-a7+neon-vfpv4' opkg install --force-reinstall ./remoteit.ipk

Note you should get a claim code from this install that you can enter in the Remote.It app by clicking the “+” add device. On the top right you should see the enter claim code field.

R3_ARCHITECTURE='arm_cortex-a7+neon-vfpv4' opkg install --force-reinstall ./remoteit.ipk

My router was indeed arm_cortex-a7+neon-vfpv4 and the above solved it for me. Thank you Brenda!
