FS#2046 - No snapshot builds have been uploaded for ramips/mt76x8 in the past month

The last builds are a month old:

Build failures:

There are mentions of the lack of new mt76x8 builds on the forum and interest in testing the latest mt76 drivers, but no one has filed a bug report yet.

The error seems to be a missing "zip" tool:

Based on forum discussion and the download server, the last successful build has been in on 3.12.2018 as 8629-f98fde2db4

Seems some buildbots do not have zip installed. mksercommfw (Sercomm devices) requires host zip command for image generation. I think this is the only dependency on zip within our builds.

I would love to be able to test the latest snapshot versions! I note that it has built repeatedly in the past, which was likely on servers with zip.

Seems like we have three options:

  1. Install zip on the servers that will be building this target
  2. Move builds for this target to the servers that have zip installed
  3. Or (maybe possibly) figure out an alternative way of doing the required zipping

It built today, which is a good start. I will try the build over the weekend.

Thank you Petr!
