[Olsr-users] BMF Plugin

I started fresh with r2. Now everything seems to be loading well. 

Issue#1: It is not doing broadcasts.

Issue#2: One thing I noticed is - 
When I built the latest kernel and booted using it, the 'tun' module did not get loaded and modprobe tun failed.

Even then bmf did not show any error. I thought Bmf would do the checkinf for tun availability before loading.

Issue#3: When I added parameter ( PlParam "BmfInterface" "wlan0" ) to the plugin, it gave the 'tun error : invalid argument' appeared.

Thanks for the help.

There are some external bmf versions that try to patch the olsr-core... so 
they are incompatible with MOST olsr versions (except the specific version the 
patch was created with).

What happens if you call 'modprobe tun' ? Do you see the tun module with 
'lsmod' after this ?
