Adding native f2fs support to onion build.



  • Sadly although the Kmod is in LEDE repos the kernel version is WAY ahead of the onion one now.

    opkg install kmod-fs-f2fs
    Installing kmod-fs-f2fs (4.9.34-1) to root...
    Downloading https://downloads.lede-project.org/snapshots/targets/ramips/mt7688/packages/kmod-fs-f2fs_4.9.34-1_mipsel_24kc.ipk
    Collected errors:

    • satisfy_dependencies_for: Cannot satisfy the following dependencies for kmod-fs-f2fs:
    • kernel (= 4.9.34-1-03997cbe2f6251de7784529eabe01f20) * kernel (= 4.9.34-1-03997cbe2f6251de7784529eabe01f20) *

    cat /proc/version
    Linux version 4.4.46 (root@2272a3272872) (gcc version 5.4.0 (LEDE GCC 5.4.0 r3273-a0888ec) ) #0 Thu Feb 2 23:46:03 2017

    So once again the not tracking of the LEDE repos leads to a version mismatch making it impossible to install kernel modules.

    Unless the b163 build is more up to date, maybe I should just manually flash the LEDE build image from

    https://downloads.lede-project.org/snapshots/targets/ramips/mt7688/

    Either way I want to be able to use f2fs because it is the 3rd time an SDcard with ext4 has started fritzing out on me.

    Thoughts?



  • I've done this, using both LEDE snapshot and WereCatf's build. Both releases are far superior to what Onion provides and especially WereCatf's is splendid as it includes everything.

    However, the main issue is WiFi driver. It is still unstable (disconnects every few minutes) and I have not seen it reaching speed beyond 6 MBit/s. I ended up adding an external usb WiFi adapter.

    If you decide to go ahead, let us know your experience
