Reinstalling libgcc on openwrt

So it appears that the developers of openwrt won't mark libgcc as a dependancy of opkg.

That means you can remove it...and then be able to do nothing

Thank to http://bredsaal.dk/trust-nobody-or-nothing, here are the instructions to get libgcc back.


  1. Login to your router with ssh
  2. Enter the following commands:
    • cd /tmp 
    • wget http://downloads.openwrt.org/kamikaze/8.09.1/brcm-2.4/packages/libgcc_3.4.6-14.1_missel.ipk tar xzf libgcc_3.4.6-14.1_mipsel.ipk tar xzf data.
    • tar.gz ln -s /tmp/lib/libgcc_s.so.1 /lib/libgcc_s.so.1 
    • opkg install libgcc

  • Be happy!
