Archer C8 rev 1
build: v3.0-r39944 std
Now I used my linux debian pc to format a usb with a 1GB swap. 4 GB jffs, 4 GB opt and 5 GB data.
in the webpage it had a line for jffs with the uuid that I entered and repeated the same for opt. There was no other line for another partition which I called data even though I did see an example with a data partition possible. I did toggle the automount drive to on. when I first filled in the info ddwrt recognized it as correct and promptly ran its script setting up jffs and opt. but then a few moments later it unmounted and has not mounted again.
Looking around almost all info is related to k2.4 I am on k3.x and so somethings have changed a lot. How do I get jffs and opt to be mounted all the time so that I can run an install script and that it can be used. I intend to setup an adblock, but other how the script works there is very little help as far as getting the usb to work as they want it to work.
Could I be missing a step in making sure the usb is always mounted?
Or could there be a bug in this version and I need to use and older one?
Also is there a way to mount a data partition so more scripts can use that to store they're files?
Many thanks for your hard work. I am going to try it as soon as I can. The instructions that were given for setting things up ended in failure because somewhere alone the line one of the settings broke all my connections with my laptop. My viop provider phone was fine and my roku was fine. Could be an issue with the fact I am running debian.
I do agree with your assessment about scripts. I do not have the brains for doing my own scripts, but usually can figure out what is going on enough to do modifications. I have been using linux for almost 20 years now and I can tell you scripting has made linux from a geek to a point the everyday person can handle linux.
Again many thanks.
