What if we make and use /usb as default mount point?

Yes. That would be a good idea. On the other hand there are alot of setups that use /opt and /mnt. /mnt would be the data and /opt for programs that load on the routers. I just dropped a suggestion for possibly making it user configurable. Choices would be as follows but /usb as a default would be good since it would make it easy to find.

/usb
/opt (standard optional applications location)
/mnt (standard data partition mount)
User created folder in /tmp
User created folder in /jffs

Note that because of this last entry we should dis-allow mounting to /jffs from the web gui.

As of right now the following happens with jffs space.

* ipkg points there for new package installation -- this can be resolved with a new destination entry in ipkg.conf

* startup scripts are run from there during bootup. This could be resolved by adding additional lines to run scripts located on the drive post-mount during bootup. They would be located at the usual location of etc/config.

That would do it I think.

I need some help making the webcams work off a USB hub... The cameras work if I use it direct to the ASUS WL500gP USB ports, but if I use a USB hub, all I get are broken links for the pics... I've tried putting one webcam direct to the port, and the other into the USB Hub... the one connected to the USB Hub doesn't show the pics... the other webcam works... here's my Dmesg:

Is the hub powered? It may be that the webcam on the hub is getting insufficient power. I know my external hard drive needs to have an AC adapter connected to it to even get going even though it works fine on my laptop without.

Eko,

A quick question:
Have you added the serial modules in your mega release?
Will BS release also be built upon usb support for mega?

shinji257 are you still planing on continue your releases and add script for auto mounting etc? Or will you add this into the official releases?

Actually the support I wanted is in the main releases now so there is no more real need for mine. On the other hand it wouldn't be too difficult to make a new modified build against the last one which would include serial support but I would cut out the ext3 and xfs modules.

OTOH I am planning on making a new nokaid usb build once I get another Asus router so if you are willing to wait I will be trying to integrate the serial support into subversion. The kernel code is there. It just isn't enabled and integrated. Trust me it is on my todo list. The following items are planned for purchase...

1x ASUS WL-500g Premium router
2x PPA 3321 USB to Serial converters

It is powered, and right now only the 2nd webcam is connected to it, while the 1st webcam is connected to the WL500gP's port (which is the current one working)... the 2nd webcam seems to be working, but there is no output on the web.

Heh. I'll look into this when I get a chance. Do you have any issues with usb flash drives on your hub?

P.S. - I just connected and disconnected a flash drive to a hub without issue.

EDIT: Never did ask but which firmware are you using? The standard firmware does not have webcam support included yet. This may come once all the other issues are ironed out. I am going to work with mini and nokaid usb enabled builds.

I'm using dd-wrt.v23_vpn_generic.0721.usb-webcam-mod-0.3-allusbmodules.bin

Didn't try the usb hdd on the hub yet... I'm planning on putting a small USB m2 card reader for a 8GB memstick micro that I got for free and use it as a USB flash drive direct to the 1st USB port, and use the 2nd port to connect a USB powered hub and connect webcams and other devices... The USB Flash drive, I was planning to put optware for thttpd+php, samba, etc...

I could probably just put the USB flash on the USB hub, but I think it is better to plug it directly since it will also be a swap drive...

Thanks!!!

Ahh.. Ok. Then in that case you will want to ask CaScAdE why it isn't working in that one. This thread is concerning the official USB support that is being worked on. The builds that other forum members had created do not apply in this thread.

i think you can put it anywhere, just remember to call it when from where you put it. if you'd like to replace the old binary, you can put it in /jffs/usr/sbin.

i think the p910nd utility is always supposed to be allowing bidirectional comunication?
to my knowledge, some windows drivers won't work without bi-dir com. my printer (a canon pixma ip1 600) prints fine, but the printer monitor (in windows) won't show any status information of the printer, donno why.

Just to let you know, build 9281: mini_usb and mega have now also ext3 inside. Only nokaid_usb has only ext2.

According to the p910nd documentation you need to enable bi-directional support using -b switch. Try that and see if it works.

Yeah, print monitor info doesn't work still.
