Hi Henning,

If I follow your minimal config, then olsr2 only 'works' (I see routes
via 'olsrv2info route' and 'ip route') if I add an ip-address to the
wlan0 interface via `ip a a .... dev wlan0` and it is not working if I
add an address to the loopback interface.

Is it nessesary to setup 'config domain' and a routing table in the
olsrd2 config, or comes the daemon with sane defaults?

Is it a problem to apply addresses to the wireless interface instead of
to the loopback?
