Hi There,

I had rtorrent running previously, but after merlin upgrades it stopped working. I tried uninstalling and installing again, but it gives me following errors.

Code:
[email protected]:/tmp/home/root# opkg install rtorrent-easy-install
Installing rtorrent-easy-install (0.2-6) to root...
Downloading https://bin.entware.net/armv7sf-k2.6/rtorrent-easy-install_0.2-6_armv7-2.6.ipk
Installing rutorrent-plugin-rpc (3.10-2) to root...
Downloading https://bin.entware.net/armv7sf-k2.6/rutorrent-plugin-rpc_3.10-2_armv7-2.6.ipk
Installing php8 (8.1.7-2) to root...
Configuring rutorrent-plugin-rpc.
Collected errors:
* check_conflicts_for: The following packages conflict with php8:
* check_conflicts_for:     php7 *
* opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package rtorrent-easy-install.

Kindly advise.

php7 was removed from Entware in April 2022.
The easiest solution is to remove `php7-*` packages despite it's dependencies by
Code:
 opkg --force-depends remove php7
The best one is to install Entware from scratch.

It looks like you have the wrong version of Entware installed, the old armv7sf-k2.6 rather than the aarch64-k3.10 that I would expect for the RT-AX3000.

How did you install Entware? Did you just reuse a USB drive from an old router?

No via amtm etc, (not surely remember the process, read tutorials here or entware wiki) this was totally new. my old router didn't support merlin.

how do i do clean install ? shall i factory reset my router and format drive ? i do not really use anything other than diversion and rtorrent.

That would probably be the best solution. Remove the USB drive first and then use the GUI option to do a factory reset with the "initialise" box ticked.
