[Olsr-dev] What version of LINUX?
Tue Feb 1 03:06:15 CET 2011
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)
