Does anyone have some resources they can share on the architecture of entware and how it integrates with the rest of the system? I’m having trouble finding a good write up so I’ll take whatever anyone’s got for me.

I’ve been working on porting nordvpn’s application over so i can run nordlynx. I’ve got the program running but I need to get the deamon going now and I’m trying not to break anything. The deamon runs from sbin and needs nordvpnd.socket and nordvpnd.service to run as system services.

Which system?

Which system?
Whoops that might be good info to provide.
I am using the ax88u on Merlin 384.19 and I’m pulling apart the arm64 Debian package. Just trying to figure out how to get the systemctl stuff to run because I don’t think Merlin handles that the same way.
