Hi guys,I am new to all this and have no experience with linux. So after installing LEDE on my router I tried installing luci-app-sqm for SQM and I got an error saying No space left on device! please I really need SQM. I tried to reset the device and no luck. Anyway to fix this?
- I think the router is to slow for sqm
- I also think you should get a new router with more ram and flash
I do have Sagem F@st2704N with usb support , But it's bricked.
would it suit the SQM? and how can I unbrick it? thank you for responding.
After you have overfilled the JFFS, your best bet is to re-flash and start over.
You will need to use Image Builder to make a custom image, take something out and make space. Or enlarge the flash.
Suggested reading regarding devices with low flash/RAM (yes, you should read them all and thoroughly.):
- https://openwrt.org/supported_devices/432_warning - General advice regarding devices with low flash/RAM
- https://openwrt.org/faq/after_installation#no_space_left_on_device - With only 250kB left for package installation, you will soon stumble over the error message No space left on device. The linked section shows some solutions.
- https://openwrt.org/docs/user-guide/additional-software/imagebuilder - You need to build your own space optimized image, with only the packages included that you really need. Imagebuilder is the easiest way to do so.
- https://openwrt.org/faq/before_installation#which_packages_can_i_safely_remove_to_save_space - When you build your own image, you want to exclude unneeded packages to save space for needed packages.
- https://openwrt.org/docs/user-guide/additional-software/extroot_configuration - Another solution for the No space left on device problem (only for devices with USB port).
It has 8MB flash (you will not get "No space left on device"), but only 333MHz CPU.
I doubt that this is better than 4/32MB and 400+MHz CPU in the TL-WR740N.
If you are looking for a new device suitable for SQM, take a look at https://forum.openwrt.org/c/hardware-questions-and-recommendations.
The performance you need depends on the ISP speed. I have 6/0.75 Mbps ADSL lines with which a 200 MHz MIPS can readily keep up. And SQM is essential to optimize performance.
It would be great if I could rebuild my image into a more fit version... But I'm not familiar with coding and using SDK. I'll try to learn how to but I doubt I'll be able to edit that image anytime soon. Thanks for the advices anyway.
Yes actually I have 9/1 Mbps ADSL. But the issue remains in space...
As this router doesn't have a USB port, so you have only one option that is installing package on network storage. I guess that would help you..
It's because of space issues, check my custom builds include SQM with support for TP-LINK routers with 4MB Flash
