I use a custom build (snapshot) from master. Because of the fragattacks issue I would like to update the "kmod-mac80211" package.
Updating in Luci throws, as expected, an error because of the different kernel versions:
The installed version of package kernel is not compatible, require 5.4.117-1-8f031b17… while 5.4.110-1-f38e8e17… is installed.
So what to do? Force the upgrade with the following:
opkg install kmod-mac80211 --force-depends
or is it too risky? Better to compile a new image? (I guess Luci will not let me just press "install", but haven't tried...)
Does the configuration backup (made from Luci) sticks to the kernel version or will the new image accept it?
