Topic: OpenWRT and 2.4 vs 2.6 kernel confusion
I have older Linksys WRT54GL v1.1 and I had previously instaled Tomato firmware and decided to move to OpenWRT.
Using WIKI http://wiki.openwrt.org/oldwiki/openwrtdocs/hardware/linksys/wrt54gl#installation is quite straigt forward, but still few things confuse me as first time OpenWRT user.
Two things confused me. First is that nvram options aren’t explained on the wiki, what they do and why is that step necessary. Second is that there are no download links so for first time OpenWRT user this is quite confusing.
How do I know where 2.4 kernel based images are located and where are 2.6 kernel images located?!? I was not sure if I was flashing the wrong one and maybe bricking my device.
Now even after I used latest backfire 10.03.1-rc5 brcm-2.4 I have 2.4 based kernel image. Where from do I get 2.6 kernel openwrt firmware from? Or I just need to do an update?
First impressions of OpenWRT are awesome.
