OpenWRT Installation Tips
Jump to navigation Jump to search

...several items to install right off the bat if you've got a Linksys WRT3200ACM or similarly advanced router hardware.

  • opkg install luci-app-advanced-reboot : This allows for rebooting to the alternate partition
  • opkg install block-mount e2fsprogs kmod-fs-ext4 kmod-usb-storage kmod-usb2 kmod-usb3 : Believe it or not, the stock installation of OpenWRT does not come with the capability to access USB or eSATA devices. Considering how prevalent a USB port is on routers these days, that's a bit baffling. Plus it's really frustrating for so many web sites that refer to the LuCI, System, Mount Point menu that doesn't exist unless the previously mentioned items are installed. Big woof on this one.
