Hi all,

really not a showstopper, but this time someone has fiddeled with the plugin 
interface. For at least half of the plugins included with 
olsrd-0.5.2.tar.bz2, the transition from PLUG_VER 4 to 5 is not complete 
currently. Example: nameservice, bmf, quagga etc will not load out of the 

@package-maintainers: Please compile with:

@Bernd: Can we introduce a simple "smoke test procedure"? And a wish: Can 
the plugin-iface-maintainer write down a small note on what to change for 
external plugins?

While I'am at it: Sme has configured a node with *two* wifi cards on *one* 
device in our berlin mesh. Which has an impact to all 1-hop neighbours. If a 
1-hop neigh can see both wifi cards of the double-node (here: one link sym 
and one link asym) the sorting of links in LQ_HELLO announcements prefers to 
send the ASYM first. Heres a fix/hack:


@thomas: Not sure what happenz if both wlan cards of that double neigh are 
SYM. Did not dive to deep here. Really best ETX link preferred? Hence my 
recommendation: do _not_ configure nodes which can communicate with a 
one-to-multi relationship. Multi-to-Multi is OK (e.g. Concurrent Eth-Eth and 
Wifi-Wifi links do work fine). Provide that you can operate "ipcalc" you can 
also use the same network range <ggg>.
