LibreMesh packages "Development" release (XX.XX)
LibreMesh project includes the development of several tools used for deploying libre/free mesh networks.
The firmware (the main piece) will allow simple deployment of auto-configurable, yet versatile, multi-radio mesh networks. Check the Network Architecture to see the basic ideas.
Download Precompiled Binaries
This is the easiest way to first test and install LibreMesh in your router.
You can download a firmware image with generic configuration of the last release at downloads subdomain.
Customize and Download a Firmware Image Using online ImageBuilder
We encourage each network community to create its firmware profile on network-profiles repository and build the images with the online ImageBuilder. It generates and delivers customized firmware images (for example custom ESSID, IP range, additional packets or scripts...).
Building a Firmware Image on Your PC
Refer to lime-sdk README.
Using LEDE buildroot
Clone LEDE stable repository, nowadays is version 17.01 (Reboot).
git clone -b lede-17.01 https://git.lede-project.org/source.git lede cd lede
Add lime-packages, libremap and lime-ui-ng feeds to the default ones.
cp feeds.conf.default feeds.conf echo "src-git libremesh https://github.com/libremesh/lime-packages.git" >> feeds.conf echo "src-git libremap https://github.com/libremap/libremap-agent-openwrt.git" >> feeds.conf echo "src-git limeui https://github.com/libremesh/lime-ui-ng.git" >> feeds.conf
If you want to use a specific branch of lime-packages specify it adding ;nameofthebranch at the end of the relative line. For example:
src-git lime https://github.com/libremesh/lime-packages.git;17.06
Download the new packages.
scripts/feeds update -a scripts/feeds install -a
Select the router architecture, model and the needed packages in menuconfig.
We suggest you to deselect the package dnsmasq from Base system section and to select dnsmasq-dhcpv6 in the same section. Then to deselect odhcpd from Network section.
Finally enter the LiMe section and select the wanted LibreMesh features, a good option is to select lime-full.
Compile the firmware images.
The resulting files will be present in bin directory.
