Where to obtain Barrier Breaker r40862

I've been given an old linksys wag160n (v1) and wish to use it as a small/permanant Mumble/murmur server.

I see from the how-to, that installing openwrt to this hardware is rather straightforward ........ apart from obtaining the actual release version that is listed.

Please someone, please link me where to find the image for download r40862

Really hope that someone can help


Thank you.

Do I need this file - openwrt-96358VW-generic-squashfs-cfe.bin ???

This device has a Broadcom BCM6358SKFBG chip

Even a more recent releases here


And here


Is there a specific reason why you would want that really ancient version?

because that is the version listed in the how-to.

I (probably incorrectly, as indicated by your question) had assumed that was the release that worked on this old hardware.

I'll see what happens with the two you have listed

That is likely either the earliest version where the package has been available, or just the version used in the example.

There is very rarely any real need to use that ancient version.

Well, the 18.06 version appeared to boot-loop from what the LED's were doing.

The 17.01 LEDE variant has flashed and I have access to the web-config LUCA page.

I'll poke at it some more and see what I can do

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. I forgot what a pain vi is. I have been spoiled by nano

Just install nano then.

Why use vi, just install nano.
I always use that.

opkg update
opkg install nano

sometimes vi can come in handy, e.g. you want to delete a line it's easier in non-edit mode just type dd. also when editing some file with nano, it crashes output at half of the console screen if u know what i mean...

And ctlr-k in nano for deleting the line is more complicated?

But yeah, some of us like a dark background, some like light, some like vi, some do not.


ed is where it is at.

...and russian hackers (tm) are using mc ... :wink:

didn't know about that. used to always build with nano too, but meanwhile i memorized that single most required command in vi (:x)
