I am trying to connect a USB storage to my Netgear WNDR3800 router, with LibreCMC 1.5a installed.
I am following these instructions:
But apparently, this package "kmod-usb-core" is not in the repository for the LibreCMC version 1.5a?
I am also getting this error, when i try to install "kmod-usb-storage":
"The installed version of package kernel is not compatible, require 4.14.168-1-9b18316c… while 4.14.168-1-9eea8fe0… is installed."
I am new to LibreCMC (and OpenWRT) so im sorry if i ask stupid questions.
Thanks for a great product by the way!
There was a critical security issue and the v1.5.0a images had to be refreshed. Upgrading to the latest v1.5.0a image will allow you to install the desired package.
Thanks for a quick reply!
Upgrading to the latest version of v1.5.0a did the trick!
Is there a (Respect Your Freedom) reason why "luci-app-samba" is not in the repos?
According to this guide
it is recommended to use, before doing manual config.
luci-app-samba has been added to the package feed.
Thanks a lot! I really appreaciate your support.
I installed "luci-app-samba" but i was still not able to get write access to the drive.
This thread helped me out:
This was the magic command:
root@libreCMC:~# chmod -R 777 /mnt/sda
I do not fully understand these permission rules though.
In the LuCI interface:
Mask for new files: 0700
Mask for new directories: 0700
So why does chmod needs to be 777?
