Illegal Instruction

I installed rclone on the router Asus RT-AC68. I installed it using entware, where it's one of the packages.

admin@HOMELAN:/tmp/mnt/sda1/entware/bin# opkg install rclone

welcome to the forum,

that is an old version of rclone, and maybe the wrong version based on the cpu of that router.

as rclone is a portable app, does not need to be install.
so can download it from https://rclone.org/downloads/

fwiw, i run rclone on openwrt, but would never use entware.

This is an old version of rclone. It should be v1.65 now

I think you should seek for help on your router forums or on entware. This error would indicate that it installed wrong binary.

Definitely a mismatch of the version of rclone binary you run and your CPU. ARM versions are a bit of a mess, and there was some inconsistencies in rclone's ARM builds some time ago that was cleaned up (there are a lot details in a closed PR if you want details). Try the latest "ARMv5 - 32 Bit NOHF" version, I'm pretty sure that will run. Then you can try v6 and v7 to see where it stops, if you care.
