[Commotion-discuss] commotion on raspberrypi

Hey Mikhail,

The Linux packages are currently out-of-date. We've had to step back
from Linux desktop packages in favor of focusing on the OpenWRT
firmware, and we'll most likely be removing those packages in a future
website update. You have a couple of options here:

You can install OLSRd on Raspberry Pi and configure the wireless and
addressing manually. This will allow the Pi to mesh with a Commotion
network, but it will be missing other features like local applications
and the Commotion web interface.

You could also build a Commotion router image for the Raspberry Pi.
This would essentially make the Raspberry Pi into a Commotion router
like any other. We intend to provide these images by default with a
future release, but I believe it should be possible to build one using
the Commotion Router github repository (https://github.com/opentechinst
itute/commotion-router). The trickiest bit is going to be including the
appropriate wireless drivers for your particular USB stick.

I can provide more information if you want to try tackling either of
these options.
