Missing openvpn-openssl in building OpenWrt from sources

Hello there,

I'm new to OpenWrt and I'm facing an issue that I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

I have downloaded the source code according to the "Build System Usage" page and selected some packages from the branch openwrt-22.03, including the "Openvpn-openssl" from the command "make menuconfig".

After that, I built the image with the "make" command but, eventually, the OpenVPN source code wasn't available in the folder, and even loading the image to the device, the binary wasn't there.

So, how can I compile the OpenVpn from the source and install it on my device?

Any suggestion?



Is it listed in the manifest file and build config file (as a y) in the output folder?

Did you mark it with a star or M in menuconfig?

Hi flygarn12, thanks for the prompt reply.

Actually, I figured out the problem. I didn't replace the .config file with my changes. Once I did that it works nice. My bad, sorry. :slightly_smiling_face:

It is a lot of holes to fall in to when learning this process, I tried most holes before the summer.
But once done it is really nice to build your own custom images.
