Hostname Issue

Hi Guys,

When I am changing hostname using /etc/config/system and restarts it got changed. But when I reboot or switch off the openwrt/lede device, the hostname changing again to "lede" and also my entry in /etc/config/system also got eliminated. What is the reason and solution ?


Sounds like there's no freespace available on ROM, which would cause all changes to be lost upon reboot.

  • Please post the output of: df -h

Hi, Thanks for the reply. Below is the output .

root@TestDevice:~# df -h

/dev/root               252.0M     57.8M    189.1M  23% /

You have plenty of free space available, so someone more knowledgeable than I will need to help.

Please place code, config, and log output within code boxes (three ways to do so)

I don't see /overlay/ mounted. What kind of router is this and did you or the firmware builder customize the file system in use?

On an Archer C7, I see, for comparison

Filesystem                Size      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/root                12.5M     12.5M         0 100% /rom
tmpfs                    61.1M    152.0K     61.0M   0% /tmp
/dev/mtdblock3            2.0M    888.0K      1.1M  43% /overlay
overlayfs:/overlay        2.0M    888.0K      1.1M  43% /
tmpfs                   512.0K         0    512.0K   0% /dev`

Is overlay created when using SATA/PCIe drives or eMMC (I assume this is the storage format due to the mmcblk0p1)?

@Gobiviswa You're not using an initramfs image are you?
