Piratebox using trunk images of openwrt
December 02, 2015 07:05PM
Hello
have somebody tried to install pb on the trunk images of openwrt?
12.04 is very old since 15.05 is stable

Nope, you can give it a try with using our online repository.

Here is a manual installation howto: [piratebox.cc]

Hello Matthias,
thank you very much for the reply.
i´ve tried it using the latest git from openwrt and your feeds

Hi,
I doubt that it worked out for you, if you built the packages based upon the openwrt-piratebox-feed repository! I did this last week and it failed because of broken dependencies (packages were renamed during the last OpenWRT releases).

In addition, we don't build our own images, because this brakes the compatibility to the upstream/OpenWRT kernel module packages. This makes the image only usable for PirateBox- nothing else.

So what we do is:

* Create package files (like the repository I linked above) with the OpenWrt toolchain. This makes sure the package format is fitting and dependencies can be resolved.
* Create a (local) repository with the newly created package files.
* Use the imagebuilder toolchain to use the official OpenWRT images & packages to create the custom PirateBox images and the install.zip

But to make sure, that our scripts are compatible with the OpenWrt, you need to get the PirateBox working with the manual steps. After that, the next step is to create the stuff based on the auto-installer. That ensures bugs are not mixed up between auto-install and PirateBox related scripts.

You find some more information here:

* General development stuff, including an introduction into our toolchain
* Github: openwrt-dev-environment , the toolchain for automatically builts
* OpenWrt image build - Be aware of the different branches. There is a AA based branch, you might take this one and create a new CC.based branch. This should include the new URL & names for the ChaosCalmer release (you can see the difference if you look at the trunk branch).

I hope that helps,

best regards
Matthias

Hi Matthias,
here is what i did - all packages are installed in the flash (16m flash)

First install all depencies
sudo apt-get install zip libxml-parser-perl build-essential libncurses5-dev m4 flex git git-core zlib1g-dev unzip subversion gawk htop python libssl-dev quilt screen file
After that
git clone git://git.openwrt.org/15.05/openwrt.git
cd openwrt
nano feeds.conf.default  
add 
src-git piratebox git://github.com/PirateBox-Dev/openwrt-piratebox-feed.git
./scripts/feeds update -a
./scripts/feeds install -a
make menuconfig
i´ve selected as Target the gl-ar150
after that go to utils and select extroot and the other packages in network and so on
then run make

result is a image with all packages needed for the pb

Hi Rene,
when I see what stuff you are able to put to the 16MB image, then I guess you really need the USB drive as an installation destination.

I think, if you just extract one of our current install.zip to the USB stick, then the piratebox installation should be triggered and the missing packages are installed on the usb stick... and the PirateBox should be configured at the end.
What do you think?

i´ve made it!
i´ve copied the content of /mnt/usb/PirateBox from another PB Installation and now it is working great with the gl-ar150 AND cc1505

Well, it seems it is not so easy...hostapd was not working but this was not a issue after hostapd -B /opt/piratebox/hostapd.conf it was working but dns seems not working i cant reach the pb with wlan
Re: Piratebox using trunk images of openwrt
December 06, 2015 09:30AM
No, I think your initial PirateBox configuration seems not to be done

Try and run:

/etc/init.d/piratebox stop
/etc/init.d/piratebox setup
reboot

The reboot is the proper way to initialize the system. After that you should see a wifi network "PirateBox - Share Freely"

Re: Piratebox using trunk images of openwrt

is there any plan to build images from trunk or the stable 15.05 release u could provide to the community maybe?
Re: Piratebox using trunk images of openwrt
December 15, 2015 07:35AM
You can try it yourself, using the openwrt-image-build with the current version of the imagebuilder (use the AA-with-installer branch).
The main difference for "generic" piratebox-images is, that 95% of our packages are installed to the USB stick, which is the reason why it didn't worked out until today. Your installation was quite different.

I'm currently working on preparing the 2.1 release of LibraryBox including a hotfix release for PirateBox. With that change, some bugfixes will go into the automatic installation...
