can sombody help me get this build with netem as im stll a newbie

gwlim's builds use a modified kernel, and OpenWrt does not allow to install kmod packages from kernels that are not exactly the same; you cannot mix gwlim's kernel with official kmod packages:


Thank you for the help

Im just wandering can i install them from tar.Gz files
If so how would i do that

No, you can't.

Tarballs are usually used for offering sources, but kernel modules need to be cross-complied for your exact target/ kernel combination (sure, on a purely technical side it is possible to pack up matching kernel modules into a plain tarball, but that isn't common practice - once you go that route, packaging it as proper *.ipk package makes more sense and is actually even easier).
