There a alot of things that fail and can be the reason for the different errors:
So i do not explore for it because it sucks, anything is always wrong since months,
It was not possible to build an stabel fullworking image.
(I build USB-Storage and f2fs inside my kernel)
At the moment i try to build a solution for the special-NAND-bbt-patch-destroy-other-devices problem.
I use minimal images without f2fs and USB-storage support and they are working (but possible that my Flash are defect on a higher position)
If you use the extra Kernel.config from post
do not use this part:
Starting from USB-Stick does not really working too because:
It starts fine from USB-Stick but the overlay-fs is on UBI0_1 (from the size it looks like mtd12).
And this make not really sense.
How can i change it and not using any overlay-fs or using it on /dev/sda1 (f2fs)
@slh: Thanks, I also put on my old EasyBox 802 with LEDE 17.04 build and analysed that the Ralink 2870 chipset there is also still fragile. You can use the chipset already as a WWAN and AP at the same time, but usually then the wifi breaks with heavy load completly and takes a minute to come up again.
The driver says it should be possible to use it in mesh-networks, but unfortunately a test with an WR801v2 with working mesh-options don't work proper with this Ralink (shit) devices....
Is there any idea if also NF offloading will be enabled in the near future for Ralink-chipsets? As I understand other discussions there is usually only Atheros chipset support... unfortunately.
So still continueing to find a good working device...
It's so annyoing with the Easyboxes. They all have a descent hardware (RAM, Flash, CPU), but always lacks of driver support. - Especially the Easybox 904 with a price < 10€ a lot of RAM and Flash, fast CPU should be a perfect development plattform for openwrt and should get supported offically!
LCD does not work on my build @takimata why did you think that fb-tft includes ILI9341 ?
I see no message in dmesg and no /dev/fb device exist.
I can not see any ILI9341-kmod.
A kmod-fb-tft-ili9486 exist but it is an other device.
An other thing are:
When enablening FB-devices the following lines are missed in kernelconfig and it is not possible to make an build without stopping, or adding this lines:
of course you can use the kernel packages that are include the my archiv-file in path packages only.
(the kernel can use only modules that where built with them (I have no idea why is it, but the answer where much interessting for me))
You have to install from hand: scp first then opkg install full-path-file-name
Or theoreticly modifi the /etc/opkg/customfeeds.conf add
src/gz any_name file://usb-path/to-packages"
And copy the files to the place where should be (it does make only sense on USB)
First, thanks for your effort =)
Regarding a PR: IMO why not using the several commits for the PR? I always push them at the top of my trees. This will preserve authorship and history. Your detailed description (which I like) can be the description of the PR itself. Otherwise I think there will be questions why things are done in this way (e.g. package/network/config/ltq-vdsl-app/files/dsl_control)
Also I see "Signed-off-by: Your Name <email@example.com>" at the end of the commit message - which isn't completed yet - right?
When I look at the patch, I see that some other things are changed as well, which has nothing related to the EasyBox904xdsl:
@takimata: Regarding the LCD driver. Although the upstream ILI9341 driver. I think I wrote it before, but the display isn't connected to a SPI interface but to an EBU interface which is working a little bit different. So we can't use the upstream driver (sadly).
Random: The random device reboots are really annoying. And I haven't found something what can caused this. Any ideas or conrete commands how to test this (except writing tests on the NAND please - I setup an rootfs at the usb sdcard and experience these reboots also)?
The reason are: I am not an git expert and i want a split into 2 parts one for the basics and one for the uboot.
For me i like to have an simple patch where i can exact see the what is going on.
In past i try to find out the relevant commits, cherry-pick them merge to openwrt but it was to complex and do not really work.
So i agree with you but i can not do it.
