I want to use an USB-Stick (~4GB) for all the packages and programs on my router (USB 2.0 on LinkSys WRT350N v2, = Target Marvell Orion).
Due to being a Linux beginner I don't have the right idea how to do it correctly or how to start.
Therefore I need your help, ideas, whatever...
Config and main functionality (LAN, WLAN, DHCP, DNS, NPD, SSH, OpenVPN, DynDNS) should reside in Flash (squash/jffs), while others (Luci full, FTP, Samba) should be on the USB-Stick.
Goal is to have a running router without USB, and enhanced functionality with USB stick plugged in.
How to use SquashFS, JFFS and USB/EXT3 as overlays without hassle?
Which packages to include in Kernel image and/or JFFS? (general and router specific)
Start without USB first, do all the setup, then setup USB and additional functionality? Or is there a better way to do it?
Are there other similar setups useful?
