Is it possible to install and run samba3 and swap-utils without installing optware?
The reason I ask is because Brainslayer said there currently is no optware for my DIR-825, but the question may be of interest for everyone with Atheros HW.

I tried different ways of downloading and installing the packages (from here mostly, since ipkg tutorial points there), but encountered various fails, from unresolved symbols to missing /etc/rc.conf .

Thanks in advance.

I used that info to get my wndr3700 running with samba3 and a few other fun things.

good luck

If you have problems with samba3 starting after reboot please read my post at the bottom of the samba blog.
Good Luck

Thanks, that did the trick for samba. Can't figure out swap though. The binaries mentioned in the blog (both busybox and swap-utils) have swap disabled - I keep getting "Function not implemented" when running swapon.

If I recall correctly the message is "Kernel: Function not implemented"
The problem is not with the utilities but with the kernel (firmware) that does not support swapping. I believe it is excluded because some past versions had problems with it.
