Topic: 8.09 RC2 released

The content of this topic has been archived on 4 Apr 2018. There are no obvious gaps in this topic, but there may still be some posts missing at the end.

The second (and final) release candidate for the upcoming 8.09 release is ready for testing now.
You can find it at http://downloads.openwrt.org/kamikaze/8.09_RC2

Changes since RC1 include:
   * Stability fixes for MadWiFi
   * Firewall fixes
   * Lots of package updates
   * PPPoE hotplug fixes
   * Atheros AR231x ethernet driver fixes
   * PowerPC fixes
   * ADM5120 support for both little and big endian
   * AVR32 compiler upgrade
   * Fixes for Broadcom 2.4 (stability, support for fixed bssid in ad-hoc mode)
   * Improved ethernet driver performance for Broadcom 47xx (Linux 2.4 and 2.6)

Known issue:

The workaround for broken Path MTU detection in some buggy ISPs is now disabled by default,
because it produced a significant throughput decrease for TCP.

If you have problems connecting to some web sites, or form submission no longer works,
you can enable it again, either manually in /etc/config/firewall (see comments),
or in the web interface under  'Network -> Firewall -> Traffic Control'

I'm testing this already on my old 233MHZ laptop. I'm quite pleased with the results!
Laptop is now a server running openwrt. Thanks for all efforts!

It's working without any problem on my Asus WL-500g Premium V1 with Atheros MiniPCI.

i have my dir-300 with openwrt 8.09 RC2, after restarting the dispostivo i cannot access the web interface http://192.168.1.1/, says error 404. But if i have access to telnet and the dhcp service

It's built without LuCI?

Where can I find more info about this issue?

Sorry for my english, i don't write english very well, i'm french.
I have a question. Update from 8.09_RC1 to RC2 works for an asus wl-500gpV1 and Atheros minipci card ? Do i need to reinstall ?
Thanks for your help.

Do you have USB drive? for some reason, after the upgrade my Asus gives an error and doesn't recognize my usb hard drive...

Install the corresponding kernel modules for usb-storage and file systems.

Oh, if it was only that easy hmm . Awhile ago I even wrote a little tutorial, and of course there is an older tutorial on this forum as well.

Well, I did some additional research that may be helpful to others that are upgrading from RC1 to RC2. Note that my USB drive was working fine before the upgrade. So, I used a driver that allows to mount ext2/ext3 volumes under Windows. It even comes with nice troubleshooting utility that explains why it can't mount the drive in case it can't. Here is the output of this utility:

C:\>mountdiag.exe n:
The volume has an Ext2/Ext3 file system, but the Ext2 IFS 1.11 software did not
mount it because there is at least one incompat feature flag set. The Ext2
IFS software does not implement:
* needs_recovery *
Here we have an Ext3 file system which has transactions left in its journal. A
pure Ext2 driver must not access such a volume which is in that state (to
prevent data loss!).
You may solve it by mounting it on Linux (which has a kernel with Ext3
support). Be sure that you cleanly dismount it, before you shutdown Linux.
After that the Ext2 IFS software should be able to access the volume.

Looks like the upgrade process didn't stop the drive properly. Worth noting that unlike before, mtd write openwrt-brcm-2.4-squashfs.trx linux && reboot didn't work; so I installed the new version over tftp.

So, I am now looking for a Linux box now (I had one before; but now it's a VM, and I can't mount external drives from VM) or I'll build one...

Hope, it helps others as well!

Did you try to install e2fsprogs and run "e2fsck /dev/sdx"?
Warning: this can take a really long time on a router, depending on the disk size and contents.

Conclusion (and I apologize for getting this conversation slightly off-topic).
I booted LiveCD of Fedora, attached the drive, and Fedora recognized the drive and proceeded to check it. After that I "safely removed" the disk from the system and connected it to the router. Now the router recognized the drive, and I could see /dev/sda1 that wasn't there before. Additionally, dmesg said something about the drive is suspect and suggested to run e2fsck /dev/sda1

I did run e2fsck and the drive was successfully mounted.

Thanks all smile

MAC Address Clone on DIR-300 not working.

I have added "option macaddr 00:11:22:33:44:55" to the wan interface
but the mac doesn't change even after rebooting.

Hi,

can somebody tell me if the standard OpenWRT Kamikaze 8.09 RC2 for brcmxxx (ASUS WL-500g Premium V1) works on a hacked to 128Mb version ?

Thanks.

Hello.

I have a Asus WL500W running kamikaze 7.09 with brcm2.4 kernel.
As I understand the 8.09 (and RC's) can be used on the WL500W with kernel 2.6 and functional wireless?
The hardware is: Broadcom 4704 @ 266MHz with Broadcom 4321 (mini-PCI) wireless and BCM5325 switch. It also includes 2 USB 2.0 ports.

I have some reasons for shifting to kernel 2.6 so if this is gonna work on 8.09 I'll do the build imidiatly otherwise I'll have to buy and Atheros mini-PCI card.

Hi.

I have a belkin 7231-4p route update firmware to kamikaze 8.09 RC2 with kernel 2.6 and install the corresponding kernel modules for usb-storage and file systems support,but still not find any usb device.

Hi guys. I tried clicking this linkhttp://downloads.openwrt.org/kamikaze/8.09_RC2 but it no longer works. Do you have any updates on this one? What is the version being released now?

8.09 RC2 ist outdated, use the final 8.09!

If you need the package repository for devices still using 8.09 RC2 change the url to http://downloads.openwrt.org/kamikaze/old/8.09_RC2/

The discussion might have continued from here.
