I'd like to start withLEDE on my new small home router. Version 17.01.2 is supporting my device, I just like to make some small modifications, most importantly having my SSH key in /root/authorized_keys. I tried to read the Wiki, searched the forum and looked at documentation I found with Google, but questions remain. I hope its correct to ask here.
I started to build according to Wiki and I had to make selection in make menuconfig. Probably I didn't do it right, because my image is smaller than the official (a lot smaller, ~260 KB).
Is it possible to get the config as used for the release build and build exactly the same image on my own? I think this should be a good and safe point to start, is this a good approach?
Wiki suggest to build GIT master. Shouldn't I better checkout v17.01.2 to have a solid and tested version?
For the first changes, I think in OpenWRT I added e.g.
package/base-files/default/etc/dropbear/authorized_keys (IIRC! I have to admit that this was in Oct 2007, almost ten years ago ). This folder still exists, so I think I just copy the file, but Wiki tells me to put into
<buildroot_dir>/files, in my case
Where to put overlay files now?
Wiki also tells images should be in
source/bin/ar71xx, but I have them in
source/bin/targets/ar71xx/, so I think it might not be up-to-date.
Is it OK to update the Wiki?
Any hints appreciated,
