Help NFS-mounting on openWRT on Asus WL-520GU

Post by Kablooie »

Hi all,

I'm following Tinkernut's instructions ( for setting up the Asus WL-520GU and running MPD on it.

I just got it working (yay!) using a web radio. Now I want to add my MP3s. I discovered that the image version that Tinkernut suggested ( doesn't have the necessary modules to run the NFS client.

Taking a look at this: I tried to install nfs-utils like this:

root@OpenWrt:~# opkg install nfs-utils
opkg_conf_set_option: Unrecognized option: overlay_root=/jffs
Collected errors:
* Cannot find package nfs-utils.

I'm guessing that the packages path I have selected doesn't have nfs-utils, or probably any of the other packages required.

My opkg.conf looks like this:
root@OpenWrt:~# cat /etc/opkg.conf
src/gz snapshots
dest root /
dest ram /tmp
dest usb /opt
lists_dir ext /var/opkg-lists

option force_space
option overlay_root /jffs

The last option is in there because I was trying to load different modules and running into complaints that the disk was full. I'm not sure if this entry actually works.

So, can someone help? I'd like to avoid re-building with a different image if I can get away with it.
