I'm having a headache of an afternoon and hopefully someone can point me in the right direction.

Following on from my previous question:

Though I commented that I had got the SNMP installed and working I had foolishly tested it on an RUT955 as when I got the answer my RUT850 was unavailable.

I've tried to copy what I did on the RUT955 with the RUT850 but I'm having a little trouble. First issue, there doesn't seem to be a package manager option on the web GUI, and all RUTs I have on my VPN do not have access to the internet themselves so I have to do it via SSH and SCP the file over.

Second issue I have is that on the wiki ( every router link then has an issue for Package Downloads except the 850. I can't seem to find any packages any where on the internet for the 850...

So I copied over the 9xx SNMP package and attempted to install that. It complains that the 850 doesn't have enough storage to install the package. I check the storage and it all seems to be in /tmp/.

I looked up how I could change the filesystem when installing:

opkg -d destination_name install somepackage

and then opkg.conf contain three destinations:

dest root /
dest ram /tmp
dest mnt /mnt

so I attempted the below:

Now it's saying I'm missing dependencies but I can't seem to find a way to install them either.

My head hurts and I'm probably missing something obvious, could someone please point me in the right direction?

Hi Daniel,

to confirm your observation: I just experienced the same issue on a similar device: RUT955. However I was using the LUCI GUI, menue Systrem > Package Manager. First I installed two packages: SNMP tools and USB tools. Then I was creating 2 additional user profiles. After that the Package Manager reports "no space available" for SNMP tools and USB tools (which have been successfully installed before).

Btw.: Using the LUCI menue: System > Extend Memory I added a 1 GB partition of a USB memory stick connected to my router and after that the Package Manger does not report "no space available" any more and allows me to install additional packages.

Hello, Daniel,

I forwarded your issue to the RnD department. I will let you know as soon as I have the news.
Hi Marius,

Were the RnD department able to find a solution for this? I've temporarily switched to using JSON-RPC which is giving me some of the information I want but I would much prefer SNMP.

RnD department found the issue and fixed it. So far we only have test firmware. I could send you a test firmware in a private message. Register in our forum and write me a private message, I will then send you.
