[Olsr-dev] Problem with compile olsrd on SDK AirmaxOS

Just tested on 0.6.7 and patch supplied allows full compile under a OpenWRT 7.09 with a 2.4x series kernel.

Bigger question is:
Should a system requirement exist that it must be a minimal 2.6 kernel? Sounds like you would be in favor of such a requirement based on your earlier comment about not usually supporting something as old as 2.4.

Otherwise It would seem to me reports are legitimate to make and code being submitted for new fixes should be making sure to go back to 2.4 kernel for testing.

In my case I just figured it was old enough of an operating system and wasn't going to trouble the dev here but I never did see a system requirement list posted anywhere unless I missed it ?

Side note:
A Reason for the 2.4 kernel limit on Nanostations is that Ubiquiti has pulled their SDK, as I understand it they even withdrew the right to use it any more. They are not updating it so users trying to work with the official OS are kind of stuck.

They still publish the required GPL code(to my knowledge) but w/o the same version kernel you can't load the binary blob drivers etc if you want to keep AirOS.

Not an issue for me as I flash all mine to openwrt, but is a tad annoyance for those who enjoyed the AirOS.
