Day changed to 07 Feb 2014 00:04 < juul> WE JUST SUCCESSFULLY CONFIGURED THE FIRST WORKING NODE 00:04 < juul> THE SYSTEM IS WORKING 00:04 < juul> ONLY TWO "SHOWSTOPPING BUGS LEFT": 00:05 < juul> * sticker printing 00:05 < juul> * upstream bandwidth limiting 00:08 < thundara> juul: Cool, can an outsider get / build the firmware yet? 00:11 < jerkey> yay!!!!!!!! 00:17 < juul> thundara: yeah, but we need to spend a couple of days going through and documenting better 00:18 < juul> the idea is that you flash the standard sudo mesh firmware, then use the node-configurator to set up the node 00:20 < juul> so, in very brief: get the openwrt-firmware repo from sudomesh github, run prepare script, run build script, flash resulting firmware (jffs version) onto your atheros node (only tested on picostation 2 hp and bullet 2 hp so far), then get the node-configurator from our git repo and follow the instructions in the readme 00:20 < juul> those instructions may well be a bit lacking still
