So, are the precompiled packages on openwrt.org [1] indicative of what
will be available for the final release of BB?
From there on ar71xx, nano was missing from RC1, but is back for RC2
[2] and RC3 [3].
Looking in the same folder [1] for the packages that Valent mentioned
in his second ticket, I also see bluez-libs [4], bluez-utils [5],
/i2c-tools [6], ntpclient [7], picocom [8] and python [9] as
precompiled packages.
Will those still be available in the final release?
