iptables and other app.bin's   

Postby resetter » Fri Sep 11, 2015 7:04 am

I have been getting the output "Input/output error" from some apps that I've installed, mainly its iptables I want to get working.
Read that it may be something to do with cramfs?
Can anyone shed a little light on this?

BTW, I am running on 4thGen model and my usb drive is EXT3 formatted as is required by Entware.

Well, the iptables and firewall app.bins are only intended for Live/Plus devices which support netfilter in the kernel (a specific kernel). They have not been tested and most likely won't work without recompilation on SMP/Gen4 due to differences in kernel version and compiled modules.

yeah cramfs on live/plus is different than cramfs on gen3/4

recliq compiled the cramfs pieces for us on gen3/4
something to do with block sizes was different, but it's been so long I've forgotten what it was
