OpenWrt 15.05 for Yacom Arcadyan ARV4518PW

I managed to generate a OpenWrt 15.05 image for ARV4518PW because the official one gives a kernel panic due to lack of space. The idea here is to get it running while stripping things that can be installed later with Extroot:

I had to do these steps to fit OpenWrt in less than 4 MB of that router total flash memory :

  • Synced with Chaos Calmer 15.05 Final (LuCI git-15.248.30277-3836b45)
  • Disabled IPv6 support (can be restored by installing IPv6 packages mainly luci-proto-ipv6 + odhcp6c)
  • Removed swconfig package (because VLANs support is somehow still buggy. Wiki refs: 1, 2)
  • Removed debugging (useless anyway if you're not a developer)
  • Optimized compiling for size
  • Enabled FPU Emulation
  • Included LuCi
  • Added : USB2 support + Ext4 Filesystem for Extroot + block-mount

The result is an image that fits well in ARV4518PW with 108 KB of free flash space.

Here you can download it (Pay attention to your router hardware version in its back: either R01A or R01):

or

Note: if you get a VFS not syncing kernel panic then check your router's MTD partitions size and probably you need to reflash a 64kb u-boot with the propre environment parameters.


what follows is just some details as a reference:
