Sadly, the issue I reported for rc1 and for rc2 is still very much alive: after a while the bridge detects a topology change and the streaming is interrupted.

How can I debug the issue in rc3 ? This is an excerpt from the router logs:

Hello,
there's a broken package dependency for nmap or some libs in some package is missing (/backfire/10.03.1-rc3/ar71xx/):

Since IPv6 is enabled for all packages now, I suggest to also include IPv6 firewalling (backporting it from trunk).
Is this possible? It'ld be great.

Just a suggestion regarding the project's webpage:

It would be nice if the homepage showed publication dates for the articles.

Currently, the articles on the homepage have no dates. From looking at the homepage, you don't get a clue whether 10.03.1-rc3 was released yesterday or a year ago.

Regards,
    Gregor Hoffleit

He he, I suggested that months ago. :-p

Maybe (at least for future news items) the publish date can be part of the text body (first line or so)

Were you able to resolve the libpthread md5sum mismatch? I am having the same issue installing samba3.

Hi,
minidlna doesn't work. It is visible, but when browsing directories, they are empty. In my log I can find:

 [2010/08/19 04:21:04] metadata.c:657: warn: Opening /mnt/Media/Filmy/movie.avi failed!
[2010/08/19 04:21:04] scanner.c:503: warn: Unsuccessful getting details for /mnt/Media/Filmy/movie.avi!

Any fixes for it?

The package MD5 issue was bugging me too so I dug into it for the gpsd package and here's what I found:

http://downloads.openwrt.org/backfire/10.03.1-rc1/brcm-2.4/packages/gpsd package
e9884605522c6f0483489001ee587307  MD5 of actual .ipk file

e9884605522c6f0483489001ee587307  MD5 in packages.gz

http://downloads.openwrt.org/backfire/10.03.1-rc3/brcm-2.4/packages/gpsd package
fc6423f6b637dc5e217c9d8727dfc6d4  MD5 of actual .ipk file
fc6423f6b637dc5e217c9d8727dfc6d4  MD5 in packages.gz

yesterday i was on rc2, so md5 sums really don't match.... but it's nothing sinister it seems, since the rc3 packages.gz now shows the md5sum of the package released with rc2. I guess it changed for rc2, but packages.gz didn't get updated. whatever... rc3 is out and things do match for it..

so, I wiped and installed rc3 clean... STILL get md5sum mis-match error.

check /etc/opkg.conf... still set to use rc2 repository...

root@OpenWrt:/tmp# grep src /etc/opkg.conf
src/gz packages http://downloads.openwrt.org/backfire/10.03.1-rc2/brcm-2.4/packages

Fix with:

root@OpenWrt:/tmp# sed 's/rc2/rc3/' /etc/opkg.conf > /tmp/opkg.conf ; mv -f /tmp/opkg.conf /etc/opkg.conf ; grep src /etc/opkg.conf
src/gz packages http://downloads.openwrt.org/backfire/10.03.1-rc3/brcm-2.4/packages

Now update opkg lists (re-read packages.gz to pick up real rc3 packages.gz)
