Did you have a USB stick inserted and mounted at /opt? It can't install to a read-only filesystem.

Yes.
Then there is another problem: If the disk/stick contains more than one partition (in this case the first being fat and the second ext4, the router goes into strange restart-loop or at least it restarts every service which results it cannot be accessed with http, telnet or ssh.

So, you either have to somehow install the module into /tmp somewhere and do that every time you reboot, or use the supported filesystems....

Umm. How about no.

It's a trip to total madness and insanity to first use usb with fat to somehow install the ipk-package to some god-forsaken-I-dunno-what-unicorn-jffs-memory-If-it's-even-possible, then unmount the stick, remove it, connect the 1.8TB ext4-drive, mount it somehow and hope it works.

No. instead I'd opt for compiling it myself w/o fat at all and w/o cd-support(!!!) only with ext4 and whynot NTFS if I could. Last time I tried to do so (with newer kernel) it was a mess and it didn't work after playing around with couple of weeks.

Is there any volunteer?

I cannot compile it easily. Fails all the time.

Are you using the correct toolchain?

Code:
strings /lib/libstdc++.so.6 | grep toolchain


AFAIK, the current toolchains are not updated, but should work.

The toolchains are correct (mipsel 79c). However the installation script gives errors way more than I can handle.

I'm sure you meant mipsel 74kc. Errors happen. Does the build complete?

My bad, 74kc indeed. Errors do happen with autocorrect. And for the answer: No, build does not complete.

Not entirely surprised there. The dev environment for DD is a b*tch. And, I don't think the current in-use toolchains have been posted yet.

So any suggestions other than to wait - or ask brainslayer to ditch some other obsolete drivers and include the ext4 to next build?

I guess you have also tried to compile - and failed?

It takes a lot of troubleshooting to get a build to compile. The build scripts in the repo are not the ones being used, and the toolchains I last saw were from last year. Not entirely sure which version of Debian that BS is currently using, either. And getting BS to re-add that module to the 8mb builds ... all I can say is, good luck. You may have better luck with the functionality being in FreshTomato, but I would have to verify that it supports this router 100%.
