thx! Solved the problem after “Headers installation”

you have already set up autorun hass?

Not auto run but in daemon mode. It does not start automatically but runs fine once started. I had a streak of 45 days continuous run before mosquito degraded.

I installed cffi following the instructions:

creating /opt/lib/python3.7/site-packages/cffi-1.12.2-py3.7-linux-mips.egg
Extracting cffi-1.12.2-py3.7-linux-mips.egg to /opt/lib/python3.7/site-packages
cffi 1.12.2 is already the active version in easy-install.pth

but I encountered an error when executing the command

HOME=/opt/ha/ pip3 install homeassistant

Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement cffi>=1.1 (from versions: )
No matching distribution found for cffi>=1.1

Please help.

You may want to follow this guide.

By the way, I am using home assistant 0.75.3

Okay, So I ran into some troubles with the disk and I had lost all setup. So had to start from begining, starting from creating the opt partition. Below is the command log that is specific to HA.

opkg install gcc
opkg install busybox ldd make gawk sed
opkg install coreutils-install
wget -qO- | tar xvz -C /opt/include
opkg install python3
opkg install python3-pip
python3 -m pip install --upgrade pip setuptools
mkdir /opt/pip_home 
source /opt/bin/
cd /opt/lib
ln -s
opkg install python-dev
opkg install python3-dev
HOME=/opt/pip_home pip3 install homeassistant

Hi, I followed your advice but I ran into this error:

Cannot allocate memory while executing command python egg_info

Thank you for your reply but I´m doing this on Asus router.
Just for the record: turned out to be a problem with lack of RAM, so I resolved it easily by setting up a swap on external disk.

Sorry for a newb question, I manged to install HA according to this post but I don´t know how to actually run it.

How about reading something here?

did you try this ?

daemonize -c /opt/ha/ -p /opt/ha/pid.file -l /opt/ha/lock.file -o /opt/ha/out.log -e /opt/ha/err.log /opt/bin/hass --c /opt/ha

then open with your http://routerIP:port

HA up and running on Asus AC68U w/ Entware, thank you guys.

Below is output of my opkg command.

What do you get? If anything is not coming up install it with opkg command.

Some of them were indeed missing but unfortunately after installing them the error stays the same

What is the output of below command? Shared output from my box for reference.

Hello @makwanajigneshm,

What version of HA are you using? For a long time, everything worked for me on the xiaomi 3g device with entware, but the latest updates broke the integration. HA components using cryptography produce errors that appear to be solved by the libssl-dev package.

I was using 0.90.1. But I did upgrade today and I upgraded to latest version that is 0.92.2 and odd enough I did not have to do that upgrade. Probably because I do not use xiaomi device.
