Hi all,

I try to get traceroute6 on my R7800, since native traceroute does not implement IPv6.
Entware does not offer traceroute6 as the iputils implementation on it does not come with it.
I tried to build it, but it is a nested box situation: building iputils require meson, that requires Python, ninja…
I installed Python, built meson, but then I cannot build ninja that does not like the od implementation in busybox. Tried to build coreutils-od, but it requires more packages…

Since I am building on the router itself, it is getting too complicated.

Any idea on where I could get traceroute6 for R7800?

Entware has tracepath6, limited compared to traceroute, but I can deal with it.
