I decided to move this blog to Google’s Blogger, because I don’t want to run my own server (hardware) any more. The domain will be the same, but all the RRS feeds and pages will have new structure.

The WordPress engine is much better than Google’s, but there are no free hosting services where you can use your own domain (not to buy one).

I found just these:

I’ll do the change in next month or two…

I promise I’ll be more active in writing articles on new platform.

I would like to describe another OpenWrt configuration. It’s going to be just few examples how to configure latest available OpenWrt firmware Backfire 10.03.1.

I’m going to use TP-Link TL-WR1043ND wifi router with small 64MB USB stick [/dev/sda1] containing ext2 partition. I plan to have some stats on the USB stick and simple html pages as well.

I forget to publish this article almost a year ago :-( So now it’s a good time before I’ll write another one…

Few days ago I bought WiFi router TP-Link TL-WR1043ND. The main reason was the USB, Gigabit Ethernet ports, 802.11n and support in latest OpenWrt.

OpenWrt is amazing project which can create really powerful device from the wifi routers.

I spent many days with collecting various information about OpenWrt, because I want to use web camera, USB hub, external USB storage and later few thermometers.

I decided to compile it from scratch (using Fedora 13), because squashfs can’t work with block-extroot without building an image (see https://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?pid=108642).
I prefer to use squashfs, because some people say it’s better than jffs2.

Sometimes you have a RHEL/CentOS server which is not connected to the Internet. But you should also install security update to prevent local hackers to mess up your system.

I was not able to find some nice description how to do it. Some people are using proxies – but then you still need some connection to the proxy – which can not be the case.

Here is my way how I did it….

Sometimes you need to run Nvidia proprietary drivers in various linux distributions.
I was able to run it on standard RHEL 6.0 installed as “Desktop” with the following commands:
