I will see if I can debug it and pass on any findings. If possible even

I am trying OLSR on Dell 630 laptop and downloaded Broadcom linux driver
for the same. I am running Fedora core 9.
I have an ad hoc network of 2 laptops, one with windows and the second
with Linux. When I begin, I am able to ping the windows laptop from
Linux. Once I run OLSRd, even then it works.
But now I start running GUI (built from olsrd/gui/linux-gtk ). Now if
I ping windows laptop it says host unreachable.
olsrd/gui/linux-gtk does not (yet) understand the LQ extensions AFAIK.
After 1 hour when I tried, it started pining normally.
OLSRd GUI seems to corrupt something ?
thanks for the report.
As said, since that was not used to my knowledge in the
funkfeuer/freifunk networks where most current developers are situated,
probably not so much attention was given to
the secure plugin as well as the linux-gtk GUI. The linux GTK GUI is
missing the LQ parsing code.
We usually take different packages for visualizing the network:
dot_draw, http_info or txtinfo plugin. These are usually more practical
although for sure not yet perfect.
I hope the explanation helped.
Patches are of course - as always welcome
(BTW: mille gracias Alina!! - just reading thru the v6 patch now... (and
bernd was faster ) :)))
