[Olsr-dev] What version of LINUX?

Hi Henning, Markus,

Thank you for your replies and advice.

Henning was right, it was the LINUX firewall that caused the OLSR to be not 

Now I am able to get 4 LINUX machines getting OLSR messages.

However, I need to use a wireless access point to help the 4 LINUX machine 
"associated" to each other first, then the OLSR is able to see the 4 LINUX 

Without using the wireless access point, the 4 LINUX machine cannot "see" each 
other using the "ad-hoc" mode of the wireless cards.

Any idea what went wrong?

Thanks in advance.

in theroy any linux version/flavour u like,..

a bit following is true:

do not use the newest kernels
the more minimalistic distro, the better,..
(the more used distro, the better)

regarding wireless card, any should do,..

but if u think you have problems with wireless card, try to get olsrd working 
with an ethernet link first,..


p.s. a 100% sure supported linux would be openwrt *G (which runs on x86 aswell)
(and has recent olsrd version in its repositories)
