Subject:Build Newcore under Openwrt

> > Hello all. I'm trying to build newcore under the Openwrt development system and I'm not having much luck. Basically it fails with the error: compiler cannot create executables. Which seems to me that I'm missing some required package. Unfortunately that's about all the information i get back. I have been able to compile the current stable version without issue, just not newcore. Has anyone been able to compile newcore under Openwrt?

Okay, I actually managed to get it to compile and run! I ended up updating and installing all the packages from openwrt then recompiled. Seems there was a dependency missing. Thanks for all the help here.

A couple more questions. One is there documentation on the configuration options for newcore? I'm trying to write the log information to a SQL backend and it looks like I can do this via a plugin. Two, it appears that signal strength is not captured anymore? Is that true, is it possible to add it back?

Thanks...Richard
