G'Day all, newbie here. Got a rpi4b on the way and want to give Openwrt a crack to use as my router, and relegate my ERX-SFP to poe switch status. Got a UE300 ethernet dongle to accompany. Just wanted to confirm if I should use 3.1 vs 3.2 branch? Is there a stability difference? Have a fairly basic config, just a separate VLAN for IoT devices, a few extra firewall rules as applicable and use Wireguard for remote access/managment. Wireless won't be used, access points in house are powered via switch.
Any tips appreciated. Looking forward to giving it all a crack.
did you add it to /etc/packagesinstall.txt (one package per line)?
don't have any experience with it... board specific config helpers or UI tweaks sound nice... must admit have toyed with the idea of UPSing the pi...
(one other user posted some li-on rig/expressed interest... anyone else running nut?)
I have an APC UPS protecting some devices (including one NAS and the RPi4 running OpenWrt). I would love to use OpenWrt to manage power on sequences (using WOL) after a power fault. I've already modified /etc/rc.local to do that but I also want to cover situations where the power fault was short, the NAS had shutdown but not OpenWrt, so the NAS needs to be restarted.
Of course the NAS could be parametrized to restart automatically when power is resumed, but I want to avoid situations when there are intermitent power failures until the situation stabilizes. The NAS takes a long time to shutdown so I want to wake it up only when battery level is adequate.
I had a long power fault yesterday and OpenWrt seems to be ok after it, probably it doesn't need to perform orderly shutdowns in my case.
you'd have to provide most of the sample config / setup as i'm unfamiliar with the tools... but sounds like it could be a nice addition... the wol thing can be compartmentalized... (scaled to non nut users via whatever api is simplest so that's easily doable)
add them to your /etc/packagesinstall.txt and let us know when we can test something you have...
