I'm running a Buffalo Tech (atheros) WZR-HP-300HN w/ DD-WRT-sp2 Std - Build 14896 and
can't figure out where I'm going wrong.

I am trying to use ipkg.

root@Sandstorm:/jffs# ipkg update
mkdir: cannot create directory '//usr/local/lib/': Read-only file system
root@Sandstorm:/jffs#

JFFS2 is enabled and it looks like I have lots of space.

root@Sandstorm:/jffs# df
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/root 11520 11520 0 100% /
/dev/mtdblock/3 19584 772 18812 4% /jffs
root@Sandstorm:/jffs#

I hoped that what this thread provided some answers:

http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=76357&highlight=ipkg+read

I did the clean JFFS and rebooted. No luck.

One participant suggested:

root@Sandstorm:/jffs# mkdir -p /jffs/tmp/ipkg
root@Sandstorm:/jffs# ipkg update
mkdir: cannot create directory '//usr/local/lib/': Read-only file system
root@Sandstorm:/jffs#

Still, no luck, I was under the impression that the JFFS was read/write.

Could someone point me in the right direction?

Many thanks.

take a look at this site for installation and configuration of opkg on the router. you do need a usb drive attached to save the info to.

Thanks for the link, I was working my way through the page and my luck ran out at #6, mounting the USB drive.

It's definitely there.. (493 Mb ext3 single partition)

From dmesg - it appears to have found the drive..

<5>scsi 0:0:0:0: Direct-Access 8.07 PQ: 0 ANSI: 2

root@Sandstorm:~# ls /dev/discs/disc0/
disc part1

But I can't seem to mount it..

First tried mounting the partion.

root@Sandstorm:~# mount -t ext3 -o noatime /dev/discs/disc0/part1 /mnt
mount: mounting /dev/discs/disc0/part1 on /mnt failed: Invalid argument

Then the disk.

root@Sandstorm:~# mount -t ext3 -o noatime /dev/discs/disc0/disc /mnt
mount: mounting /dev/discs/disc0/disc on /mnt failed: Invalid argument

And then my luck appears to run out.

Any advice?

those directions are a little dated. all devices are now found in /dev

so for example to mount my usb drive i do
Code:
mount -noatime /dev/sda1 /mnt


also when you get to the point of installing things through opkg DO NOT install libc. the latest version causes allot of problems. I am not sure if you HAVE to install it, there is another copy of it that is older and works stored http://downloads.openwrt.org/backfire/10.03.1-rc3/ar71xx/packages/

For reasons I am a little confused about, it won't mount the thing, even though it seems to know its there.

@brs480

Have you tried ?:

mount -t ext3 -o noatime /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part1 /mnt

Lastest ddwrt doesnt load drivers on startup to save memory.

Add the following to your startup script:
insmod mbcache
insmod jbd
insmod ext3 and/or
insmod ext2

After that run mount /dev/sda1 or sdb1 /jffs or /mnt.

Like ccdoggy said,
openwrt updated all the lib and packages in the snapshots folder. But all the packages in the backfire folder (not just libc) are older versions (like nano and transmission). So I ended up installing new transmission and busybox and old libs and nano).

Just as a follow up.

Finally figured out what the problem was. It was the flash drive itself.

I grabbed another flash drive, partitioned it, copied over the stuff from the first drive and it mounted right up.
