Thanks for this guide. I got transmission working with it.

The libc link is wrong. There is a newer version there.

It should be: http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/trunk/ar71xx/packages/libc_0.9.33-106_ar71xx.ipk

Does not exist Sad
*edit*
i got opkg working with (bricks many other programs):

wget http://downloads.openwrt.org/backfire/10.03/ar71xx/packages/libgcc_4.3.3+cs-42_ar71xx.ipk
wget http://downloads.openwrt.org/backfire/10.03/ar71xx/packages/libc_0.9.30.1-42_ar71xx.ipk
ipkg -d /opt/ install libgcc_4.3.3+cs-42_ar71xx.ipk
ipkg -d /opt/ install libc_0.9.30.1-42_ar71xx.ipk

*edit2*
WARNING!! you have to "opkg install libc" after that to get everything working!

Pro tip: If you use a USB flash drive, format to ext2, not ext3. Ext3s journaling system will wear and tear the drive, decreasing its life.

First i want to thank you. Basically, your tutorial is good, but not complete.
right now, i am working in my spare time to a script like frater (the one that make optware script for dd-wrt), but is work in progress ....

i have an awesom wndr3700, and i am a great fan of dd-wrt, but how can i install sound drivers on atheros ?
i already done that many times for broadcom, but it seems that every blackfire release has a different kernel version than one of the dd wrt.

Does anybody do that? to work sound modules (basically OSS) on atheros device ?
I tryed to compile myself dd-wrt, but even if i am developer, i didn;t handle very well...


so, any suggestions, please let me know Smile

Code:
opkg list | less

- Enter to go by line
- Space to go by page

This is an excellent tutorial, thank you dynek!!

To start I have a WNDR3700 v1 running DD-WRT v24-sp2 (03/19/12) std (SVN revision 18777).

I followed the tutorial in the original post and everything seemed to be OK after section 8, run opkg update, which ran as described.

Obviously I had to change the libc package in section 5 to:

Code:
cd /tmp
wget http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/trunk/ar71xx/packages/libc_0.9.33.2-1_ar71xx.ipk
wget http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/trunk/ar71xx/packages/opkg_618-2_ar71xx.ipk
ipkg install libc_0.9.33.2-1_ar71xx.ipk opkg_618-2_ar71xx.ipk

as there is a new version.

A problem arose when I actually tried to install any packages. Having listed all the packages I noticed Snort. After issuing the command opkg install snort I got an error that the dependencies libc * libc * libc * libc * were missing and that installation could not be completed. This happened when trying to install any package.

I solved it by manually reinstalling libc using opkg:

Code:
cd /tmp
wget http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/trunk/ar71xx/packages/libc_0.9.33.2-1_ar71xx.ipk
opkg install libc_0.9.33.2-1_ar71xx.ipk

Hope this helps.

PS: I haven't tried this but this may also work: Skip the libc install in section 5:

Code:
cd /tmp
wget http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/trunk/ar71xx/packages/opkg_618-2_ar71xx.ipk
ipkg install opkg_618-2_ar71xx.ipk

and apply my fix in section 8.

Good Day All,

I have successfully got Opt-Ware loaded on my TP-Link WR1043ND (currently running 14896). I have also tried revision 18777 (sadly has a few issues for this router, 14896 is meant to be the best version).

I am trying to gain access to Ser2Net with a USB Serial Device (Arduino). The Opt-Ware works for everything, except I am unable to install the kmod-usb drivers....

I know this issue has been around since mid 2010, I was hoping there is a solution? I dont want to migrate to OpenWRT just for this.

Current DD-WRT: 14896
Kernel: 2.6.24.111

opkg list-installed:

busybox - 1.19.4-2
coreutils - 8.16-1
coreutils-stty - 8.16-1
kernel - 2.6.32.25-1
kmod-nls-base - 2.6.32.25-1
libc - 0.9.30.1-43.10
libftdi - 0.19-1
libgcc - 4.3.3+cs-43.10
libncurses - 5.7-5
libusb - 0.1.12-2
ser2net - 2.7-2
terminfo - 5.7-5
uclibcxx - 0.2.3-1

vi /etc/opkg.conf:

It would appear my DD-WRT revision is too old for the OPKG files?

Edit: I just checked 18777, its kernel version: 3.2.12-rc1-svn18774
This still does not appear to match any OPKG options on OpenWRT...

Thank you, it solved my issue.

It seems you have to use opkg package manager to install it, not the ipkg, which was my mistake.
