I'm running OpenWrt 14.07 Breaker Barrier on a TP-LINK TL-WR841ND which only has 4MB flash / 32MB RAM, so I’m reluctant to install LEDE 17 (which would be the easy way to get an updated dnsmasq). What are my options?
Can I do the following to try the LEDE dnsmasq on old OpenWrt?
cd /tmp wget https://downloads.openwrt.org/barrier_breaker/14.07/ar71xx/generic/packages/base/dnsmasq_2.71-5_ar71xx.ipk wget http://downloads.lede-project.org/snapshots/packages/mips_24kc/base/dnsmasq_2.78-1_mips_24kc.ipk opkg remove dnsmasq opkg install /tmp/dnsmasq_2.78-1_mips_24kc.ipk # If it doesn't work right, reinstall old version opkg remove dnsmasq opkg install /tmp/dnsmasq_2.71-5_ar71xx.ipk
Or, are my chances better with LEDE 17 on 4MB of RAM? The only packages I use are luci for the web GUI and sqm.
