Issue#1: BMF

Issue#2: Is not a problem for me since I can load it in other kernel build. 

Issue#3: Oho.. Ok. Thanks. 

But when I do not use any parameter, it is supposed to work, right? 

I started the OLSR. Everything came up properly. But ping does not do anything. 

Please tell me if any guesses.

What is not doing broadcasts ? OLSR ? BMF ?

If you cannot load the 'tun' module you have a problem outside of OLSR. You 
cannot use the BMF plugin before you solve the problem.

BmfInterface is the name of the tun/tap device the BMF tries to open... so 
don't use the name of an existing interface.

Try to start with BMF without any parameters (after you solved the tun module
