Re: Backfire 10.03.1 final

wow .....very shocked to see this downloading now....

Re: Backfire 10.03.1 final

What a nice yuletide gift, thank you!

I see that the changeset 29599 didn't make it to final, do you know if that changeset has significant impact on ath9k stability?

Re: Backfire 10.03.1 final

Have the developers discussed the roadmap forward?

Will the development on the Backfire branch continue for a second release?
Or will a new stable branch be spinned off the current trunk in early 2012?

Re: Backfire 10.03.1 final

Excellent. Perhaps my wrt350n's (ath9k) wifi is now finally stable.

Re: Backfire 10.03.1 final

changeset 29599 seems to include some ath9k ,5k and mac patches wonder why they where not included
..

Re: Backfire 10.03.1 final

hnyman, there'll be 12.x releases based on trunk and most likely at least one more backfire release.

Re: Backfire 10.03.1 final

Thank you very much for this release! I have testet it since the release of 10.03. Nice present wink

Re: Backfire 10.03.1 final

Thank you very much! And also congratulations. After almost(?) two years of RC status I wondered if it would ever happen. Merry Christmas to all of you, folks.

I was using snapshots and it was stable for 3 weeks now.
A very nice router + fantastic software = WIN.

Re: Backfire 10.03.1 final

Default image works fine on TRENDnet TEW-632BRP.

OpenWRT team, Thank you for a great Holiday gift.

Re: Backfire 10.03.1 final

Thank you guys! It is great that you released this before the end of the year.

Well done.

Re: Backfire 10.03.1 final

LuCi sets the 'frag' and 'rts' settings in the wrong section in 10.03.1, previous versions (10.03.1-rc5) put it in "config wifi-iface" (correct, according to http://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/uci/wireless), but now it ends up in "config wifi-device radioX", which seems to break some WiFi functions.

Re: Backfire 10.03.1 final

Cool.  I tried upgrading from rc4 and enough broke that I just saved my config directory, reset and cut/pasted things back.  But a couple hours later everything is shiny.  So far it looks like it is worth the bother.  No bugs to report yet.

Re: Backfire 10.03.1 final

Thank you very much !
This fixed some wifi problems that I had with RC5.

Re: Backfire 10.03.1 final

A big thank to all developers. OpenWRT rocks.

In order to get the sources: Is good running "svn checkout --revision=29592 svn://svn.openwrt.org/openwrt/branches/backfire ./openwrt ."  I've run  svn://svn.openwrt.org/openwrt/tags/backfire_10.03.1/ and the revision number I get is different, what is the correct one?

Thanks in advance

Is there an "easy" way to either get a build with Inotify enabled (there was a bug opened/fixed that addressed that issue in the past https://dev.openwrt.org/ticket/9291), or have an asterisk18 build that has been compiled with the "--without-inotify" option (target ar71xx) ?

Re: Backfire 10.03.1 final

Am still on 10.0.3-rc4.

Will this version fix the WIFI issue when it just stops working?
I just got this issue after 6 months of no problems. weird....

running TPLINK 1043nd
