did u install the olsrd luci plugin?

if that doesn`t help better ask the openwrt (packet) maintainers about
problems with the gui or integration into openwrt,.

(or just start/configure olsrd from the shell)

afair the plugins are in a seperate debian packet,..

apt-cache search olsrd
olsrd - optimized link-state routing daemon (unik-olsrd)
olsrd-plugins - various plugins to enhance olsrd

so i guess just install olsrd-plugins aswell!



but you can alternatively "easily" compile and install olsrd yourself
apt-get install gcc beason flex git
git clone git://olsr.org/olsrd.git <http://olsrd.org/olsrd.git>
cd olsrd
make build_all
make install_all
