Any other particular areas where you might be inspired to make some changes?

BTW -- Any of those flavors of linux should have successfully compiled. Next time compile with -j1 and copy the error.

I was using the following command to compile " make -j1 V=99sc " the R61e i am using only has 2 cores any how after all its a Core2Duo.

Will be doing a clean install of Arch Linux tomorrow and retrying.

As for inspired to make some changes in what manner? Your current build is a solid one and as the atmaterial theme goes, i am more then happy to hear suggestions from the rest of the users

I know this may be a dead horse, but I’m going to kick it anyway. TomatoWRT has java? Real-time charts. Can we somehow get those or something similar?

Dear Dave ( aka the Inimitable Davidc502 ),
First off - I love your Builds - and the new build - r9987 is great and no issues here. I still did not get umdns working - but it is probably due to my own lack of understanding. Also by way of reporting back to you and The Community at Large - I was able to get WireGuard Client working with both TorGuard and NordVPN. I put up both tutorials in the OpenWRT Forum - see TorGuard here : Solved: torguard openwrt wireguard client and NordVPN here : Solved: nordvpn OpenWrt wireguard client
Just to let you know - I absolutely love the new theme - luci-theme-atmaterial which you have been asking us for our feedback on. It is clean and responsive. Regarding the upgrade instructions; now I am not an expert but the following commands worked for me.

cd /tmp
wget https://dc502wrt.org/releases/luci-theme-atmaterial_git-19.133.50139-d94d70f-1_all.ipk
opkg install luci-theme-atmaterial_git-19.133.50139-d94d70f-1_all.ipk
The trick is to issue the install command while still in the /tmp directory. This is how we were advised to update the wifi drivers back when you would issue updates between releases in the olden days.

By no means am I trying to contradict your advice;
I am just offering up what worked for me for those who may encounter any difficulties.
Thanks again Dave for all you do in pushing out these stable, progressive and up to date and cutting edge Builds of yours for all of us.

Peace and God Bless

Hi. I use google translate. Congrats for this great project by the developers. I am a basic user in this of openfirmware, I own a wrt1900ac v2 router. I used a few days ago a compilation DD-WRT of 10/10/18 with which I obtained a low performance in wireless network of 5 and 2.4 ghz. I would like to know if this firmware is more stable than the DD-WRT 10/10/18 in the Wi-Fi since I am interested in the options of advanced QOS and place a small hard disk to share files in my personal network.

Alpine Linux works fine and is very "small", Debian/Ubuntu also works fine.
I've personally moved from Debian to Alpine and I'm happy with the move.

If you want realtime charts, just install netdata?

I'd go with a copy of VirtualBox (free! - https://www.virtualbox.org) on macOS and run a linux VM inside it. Virtualisation is so optimised these that you'll barely notice the difference to running natively, particularly for compute (as opposed to disk or network) intensive tasks.

There is many ways to do this update to the theme, myself i just simply run this

wget -c https://dc502wrt.org/releases/luci-theme-atmaterial_git-19.133.50139-d94d70f-1_all.ipk -O luci-theme-atmaterial.ipk && opkg install luci-theme-atmaterial.ipk && rm luci-theme-atmaterial.ipk

Its a one liner downloads it then installs it then f's it off.

Thanks for the feedback on the theme. @davidc502 the one liner might be a better way to go for now. If there is a way to make it so that it will update in the WebGUI via software packages let me know

TomatoWRT? didn't know that was even a thing, only knew about DD-WRT and OpenWRT.
If it runs on Java thats going to require someone that knows how to java surely.

Dear solidus1983,
Hello and thanks for the great theme - yes, I know you modified something or another - but this theme is outstanding - I don't care about where it came from - you are the current curator - so once again - thanks.
Now - regarding Tomato Firmware or TomatoWRT - it has actually been around for a while for Broadcom based Routers. There were several developers back in the day - Tomato was originally released by Jonathan Zarate in 2006. See here for more information : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tomato_(firmware) - The most famous Tomato firmware developer is / was Shibby from Poland - however, he got married and retired - so for a while The project was dormant.
Along came kille72 and @Pedro with a project called FreshTomato‑ARM and FreshTomato‑MIPS see here :http://freshtomato.org/ - they currently are the only developers who are regularly pushing out new Tomato Firmware Builds - and they are very feature rich Builds as well. Interestingly these builds are a sort of cousin to OpenWRT in that you can run Entware on these builds and - these packages relate / correspond to OpenWRT repositories. See here for Fresh Tomato Linksysinfo Forum and downloads : https://www.linksysinfo.org/index.php?threads/fork-freshtomato-mips.74145/ and here : https://www.linksysinfo.org/index.php?threads/fork-freshtomato-arm.74117/

BTW - Also for Asus Routers their OEM firmware is based on TomatoWRT. Merlin maintains Asuswrt-Merlin ( A custom firmware for Asus routers ) followed by john9527 ( [Fork] Asuswrt-Merlin 374.43 LTS - ( LTS (Long Term Service) fork of Asuswrt-Merlin based on 374.43_2. This older code base has a history of being very stable, and some of the older code components may perform better in some environments. ), Merlin is here : https://asuswrt.lostrealm.ca/ while john9527 is here : https://www.snbforums.com/threads/fork-asuswrt-merlin-374-43-lts-releases-v39e3.18914/
Both of these are capable of running Entware - which as I said earlier is based on OpenWrt packages upstream. Entware runs on USB - there is a neat little installer here : https://www.snbforums.com/threads/amtm-the-snbforum-asuswrt-merlin-terminal-menu.42415/
So, I do not know if any of this may prove helpful to you or not ; however, as you seem to be one who readily seeks knowledge; I figured that I would share this information with you.
ONE MORE THING:
ENTWARE Install on the TomatoUSB
https://github.com/Entware/Entware/wiki/Install-on-the-TomatoUSB
Available packages from Entware. (Asus-Merlin custom firmware)
https://gist.github.com/dvessel/5230459
Entware/Entware
https://github.com/Entware/Entware/wiki
ENTWARE ALSO IS FOR DD-WRT
https://wiki.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Adding_Software_Packages_using_Entware-3X#Package_Installation -
ENTWARE Package List:
https://pkg.entware.net/binaries/armv7/Packages.html

So there seems to be a great deal of cross pollination with all of these FirmWare Projects IMHO

So - there you have it. Once again - thanks - and Peace

@diizzy
Good suggestion, as I don't need a large footprint atm for compiling firmware images

@WiteWulf
I tried several times to install VirtualBox. it's denying the install because of "unknown errors". I'm using Mojave 10.14.4 and I don't see any error messages in the console logs. It's very strange as I know I've installed it before a few years back. I did allow also allow "Any Developer" in my Security Vault settings.

@solidus1983
I like netdata but it is a little daunting.

Is the luci-theme-atmaterial planned on being incorporated into the mainline OpenWrt project, similar to Rosy?

-Regards

Love it. Thanks

The original version I forked from has a pull request to do so but even though it shows on GitHub in the OpenWRT area I don't think it's been incorporated as of yet.

Over the past week there have been a lot of downloads of atmaterial.

Should the LuCi-theme be changed from Rosy to atmaterial?

inquiring minds want to know.

Dear Dave,
Hello and I for one say - HELL YEAH ! atmaterial is cleaner and I like the " animation " for lack of a better term. Plus rosy does not respond as quickly. Those who prefer rosy can always install it. But as the default Davidc502 LuCi-theme - I think atmaterial is the best way to go.

Peace My Brother

Sorry @davidc502 not sure what i started here, it could be possible to have both themes installed and just one active, material and darktheme could be made installable thus saving space. I will let the other decide. However i am not getting as many hangs on at material like i was getting on rosy.

However i would also like to ask if there is any colours people would like as i might make some branches with different colour combos ( Simple .css edits) unless other perfer to stick to the Linksys colours.

The community as a whole can decide, Is there a way to have a poll for people to use to make it fair for everyone to have an input.

ParanoidZoid would love to test this out, is there away to do this on Arch Linux? Using an old Core 2 Duo T9500 Thinkpad R61e for Testing OpenWRT building (Still trying to get it to compile as i am learning)
