    no /dev/discs on own compiled 1.9.2.7-4

    Humm.
    I tried recompile 1.9.2.7-4 for my wlhdd but after flashing it, I lost /dev/discs.

    Compile operation was :
    src/wl500g-1.9.2.7-4/make kernel
    src/wl500g-1.9.2.7-4/make
    src/gateway/make
    src/gateway/make package-WLHDD

    any idea why my firmware lacks /dev/discs ?

    Hi,
    I wish you success with your special WL.HDD Edition of Olegs Firmware.
    I also use a WL-HDD with the latest Oleg Firmware...the only things I miss: Formatting via WebGui, hdparm and a save shutdown. Do you have plans to implement that in a future version?

    cu,

    Save shutdown ? USB => Eject unmounts the harddisk => you can switch the device off after....

    BTW: Does anybody have a recompiled version with r/wsize 32768 for NFS server ?
    BTW2: is there something i should know when i try to recompile with SUSE 9.2 ?

    Ciao Gerd

    Question ... some options i want in a custom compile of oleg's version / original firmware ...

    Hi :-)

    I have some ideas for a custom version of oleg's or original ASUS firmware ...

    --------------------------
    - I'm searching one version in which I'm able to modify the default setting inside the .trx and do not have to change them after upgrading ...
    * set my custom IPs / DHCP setting
    * store my custom WEP keys / settings
    * WLAN status default to off
    * ...

    - I want to have the keypress of button press modified ... to have easy access to some basic functions ...
    * switch WLAN on / off (short button press toggles wlan)
    * shutdown device (press button 5 sec.)
    * reboot device (press button longer than 15 sec.)
    * restore factory setting (press button on power on only!)
    ... this will be only possible examples for the new function of that button :-)
    --------------------------

    Posted also in my post on this thread ...

    http://wl500g.info/showthread.php?t=1675

    Any ideas how to realize this ?

    Any chance to get anywhere the new ASUS firmware sources V1.2.3.4?

    Thanks
    Martin

    --------------------------
    I change button keypress in Oleg's firmware 1.9.2.7-3 (file rc/watchdog.c) with some other functionality:
    - reboot 3 sec, power led flashs shortly
    - power down 5 sec, power led flashs longly
    - reset to factory settings 15 sec, power led flashs too longly
    - and super feathure - short press (0.25-2 sec) watchdog counting short keypresses, power led flashs too quickly, and than run script
    Code:
    /usr/local/sbin/button-pressed <count>
    where <count> - counts of press, and you can change button processing at any time and add any counts of functions ;
    I write in script on one press WLAN ON/OFF:
    Code:
    /usr/local/sbin/button-pressed 
    
    #!/bin/sh
    buttonlog() {
            echo "`date`: $1" >> /tmp/button.log
    }
    
    wlupdown() {
            CHECK=`wl isup 2>&1| grep on`
            if [ -z "$CHECK" ]; then
                    insmod wl && wl up && buttonlog "WiFi started up"
            else
                    rmmod wl && buttonlog "WiFi shutdowned"
            fi
    }
    
    
    buttonlog "Button pressed count $1"
    
    case "$1" in
    1)
            wlupdown;;
    *)
            buttonlog "No handlers for count $1";;
    esac
    und if you want to WLAN OFF on boot - write in /usr/local/sbin/post-boot script
    Code:
    wl down

    Yes, but "emulated" - i use execution this sequence:
    Code:
    wl down
    /usr/local/sbin/pre-shutdown
    sync
    # call power led off (in watchdog.c)
    halt
    and device now in "shutdowned mode"

    P.S.
    in script /usr/local/sbin/pre-shutdown can add some more

    well, in fact I'm interested on how stock firmware turns it off...

    Your can view sources of original WL-HDD firmware (router/rc/services.c, void call_shutdown) - in original sources used this sequence:

    1. unmount usb disks
    2. stop services
    3. rmmod usb
    4. leds off
    5. park hdd (ioctl)
    6. set nvram shutdown_hit = 1
    7. rmmod ide

    and no really turn-off calls

    call_shutdown used on call to linked as "stophd" rc, and on 10 sec key press.

    Year later same problem, as Jean-Fabrice....

    After some mods to fw, /dev/discs, /dev/ide gone...
    but unresolved symbols appear in all ide modules.....
    I have been playing with BT and HID...

    Great idea, I was thinking of something similar but if you've already done it, could you post the diff to watchdog.c please?

    Also, does anybody have a link to wlextract to change some of the files without recompiling everything? I could only find an unreachable host in Czech republic...

    CU!

    Frederik.
