captainklunk Posted May 9, 2010 Share Posted May 9, 2010 I have been playing around with the latest OpenWRT backfire release on a Open-Mesh mini-router trying to get Karma or Jasager working but am not having much luck. Has anyone else tried using Jasager or Karma with the later versions of OpenWRT? Here is what I have tried/learned so far: From what I can tell there is a karma package included with the standard OpenWRT backfire package tree ... but it doesn't work (I am guessing because there is no madwifi karma patch ... since iwpriv karma is not an option). It appears that the karma patch included in OpenWRT was removed a couple years ago (https://dev.openwrt.org/changeset/9404/trunk/package/madwifi/patches). I tried re-adding the patch and rebuilding madwifi ... but no dice (patch errors). I was able to find 3 possible patches online ... (1) the old OpenWRT karma patch ... (2) the madwifi-patch included with the karma-20060124.tar.gz tarball on the karma homepage ... (3) and the madwifi-hal-digininja-karma-updated_1.patch I found on some random site after some googling. None of these patches patched cleanly, and I am not currently familiar enough with the source code to try to fix them. Also, I was not able to find the full Jasager source code to try rebuilding the packages for backfire ... Now, I have tried forcing the latest Jasager packages to load using opkg, but am having no luck there as well. When loading the Jasager packager I get: pkg_hash_fetch_best_installation_candidate: Packages for jasager found, but incompatible with the architectures configured ... and when trying the Jasager-madwifi package I get: kmod-madwifi (188.8.131.52+r3314-4) installed in root is up to date. I have tried forcing the packages to load with the --force-downgrade, but that has not worked. I already use Backfire on some other routers for wireless testing and research, and am interested in keeping the same OpenWRT release on all of them ... Any thoughts or ideas on making this work???
