I think that the the "secret" is a well-sized and customized rootfs.tgz

We can start from the de-crompressed original full root file system and go ahead removing what isn't needed, according to the expected target configuration. For example, if we'll use BATMAN then we'll have to remove OLSR related stuff, if our final configuration doesn't have the second AP then we can remove hostap daemon, and so on...The same for dnsmasq 'cos we use udhcpd.

At the end of the clean-up we'll have to compress again the root file system into a fresh ubnt-rootfs.tar.gz tarball and use mtd-upgrade to flash the devices (changing robin-23_rootfs.tar.gz with ubnt-rootfs.tar.gz).

This could be a good solution. Thoughts?

Dingo,

How'd you get your images so small!? Can you provide a working .config for the rest of us?

Does anyone know why the image has to be so much less than the available 4Mb? I've tried on a nano5 with 3.5Mb squashfs image, without success, not sure if the problem is with the image size or some other configuration.

I must be missing something very obvious, but where are these these files that are being listed by Dingo and others?

This is my first post here. I must be missing something as well, because after pouring over this site, I can't find those files either. Can someone please post a link to those files?

I just purchased 3 NanoStation2 routers to test in a mesh configuration. I would really like to try to assist with testing these ROBIN firmware images if we can get a working image which will fit in the 4MB flash space on the NS2.

Agreed. If you want any assistance testing the ones you already have, I would be glad to help out.

Will the original robin images work on the PicoStation since it has 32mb and the same size flash?

Hi Dingo,

I'd just like to also express my interest in your compilation .config to create small images. I am particularly interested in running Robin on Bullets for outdoor nodes and D-Link DIR-300 for indoor nodes. Both have 4MB flash.

Dingo,
This is almost embarrassing. I'm a 55 year old man and am feeling like a kid waiting for Christmas. Oh where is my dignity?

I noticed BATMAN-Advanced on your list. Are we going to be work on layer 2 if we wish?

Thank you very much for all the work that all of you have done to get this project this far.

Thanks Dingo!

What revision of Kamikaze are you using for this?

From my own attempts (just running default kamekaze with no robin packages), the latest '14278' seems to work, but the 11949 (suggested by antonio the compiling robin howto) bricks the router.

Will try with your config today.

Hello Dingo,

I am also very interested in your 4MB version if it can be applied to the Dlink DIR-300.

I am particularly interested in using this to monitor and control hard wired clients through the 4 Ethernet LAN ports on the back of the DIR-300. Using this model I could have a single, clean box that would act as a gateway device for wireless and wired networks that would feed all data back to the Open-mesh control panel where I could monitor bandwidth used by each user and optionally block abusers on both wired and wireless networks. This would be very useful and priced right.

I think it would be better to have a single repository for all the ROBIN and its forked versions. And maybe just a couple of topics 'cos you're spreading your announcements all over the section and users wont post w/ a logic and clean organization of the messages itslef.
....just my opinion Smile
