I'm quite new to OpenWRT and want to try it out with a TL-WR841N v8.x. I'm asking my question here because the OpenWRT website redirects to this board.
Because I don't want to use
root for administrating OpenWRT I had to insatll the
sudo package. Even installing only this one additional package it seems that there is no more space left:
# df -h Filesystem Size Used Available Use% Mounted on rootfs 576.0K 428.0K 148.0K 74% / /dev/root 2.3M 2.3M 0 100% /rom tmpfs 14.0M 1.1M 12.8M 8% /tmp /dev/mtdblock3 576.0K 428.0K 148.0K 74% /overlay overlayfs:/overlay 576.0K 428.0K 148.0K 74% / tmpfs 512.0K 0 512.0K 0% /dev
My first idea was to uninstall LuCI because I don't want to a web interface (which I even could not secure with SSL at the moment because there would be no space to install
luci-ssl) but as I understoof FAQ this is not possible:
By removing packages you installed after flashing OpenWrt onto your Router. You cannot remove packages on the SquashFS partition, which is included in the image you flashed.
So now I have 3 possibilites:
rootinstead of a custom root-account.
- Buy new hardware.
- Compile OpenWRT on my own without LuCI.
- Are there any other possibilities to get more space I maybe forgot to try?
- If I would try to comile OpenWRT on my own: Why there are 2 compiling tutorials:
and which one should I use?
- Will compiling OpenWRT on my own without LuCI give me enough additional space for
screenand the additional packages I would like to have maybe later?
Thank you for OpenWRT/LEDE (and merging the communities again)!
