===== To Be Done "Sometime" =====
These are as much ideas as anything else. Comments are appreciated.

 * Is webmin a good idea?
 * Setting up a default message on telnet/ssh; "you are not logged in via nocat, please goto http://aa.bb.cc.dd/"
  * This would be a little tricky to do with telnet and there is no real way to do this with SSH that I can think of (because there is no way to display a banner before login). Actually I just learned something ... this can be done. It still requires some trickery and I'm not sure it's really that important but it would be cool. If you wanna contribute the necessary firewall rules to make it happen please do, the best way I can think of doing this is to redirect port 22 and 23 traffic to anywhere to the stylistic and display a banner there. -- AdamShand

  * AdHoc mode is supported, you just need to change the mode the card is in from master to managed in /etc/network/interfaces (it ships as an AccessPoint by default). -- AdamShand   * This was a known issue with the 2.4.16 kernel, please upgrade to 2.4.17. -- AdamShand
Line 59: Line 64:
 * Add the debian package for Wavemon (new in unstable)

This is to help track and resolve bugs with the DebianLinuxAccessPoint and DebianApImage projects. If you think you've found a bug in how the image works please list it here along with all the information I might need to fix it. Thanks -- AdamShand.

Feature Requests

To Be Fixed Soon
  • Setup for iw_mode command to set default mode (master/managed/adhoc)
  • Add notes on how to set power for cards
  • Test NoCatAuth CaptivePortal mode (once the behind NAT fix is in place make captive mode the default)

  • Touch screen support. :) Can this be done without X? non-X-scribble?

    • I think this requires X. X will be supported once I get docs from CoryWebb on how to make the pen drivers work and a working XF86Config file.n -- AdamShand

      • You should check with Mark Curran, I think he has added X to your image already --MichaelCodanti

  • Add documentation on what needs to be setup and what it does
  • Create setup script to make configuration easier
  • Setup a Debian Apt repository for PTP packages and configure sources.list to use it.

Open Bugs

From AdamShand

From TerrySchmidt:

  • Screen doesn't turn off (might be my bios settings)
  • How do you make grub bootable? (without loading lilo first and then booting and choosing grub)
    • working on it, if anyone else wants to figure this out it would be appreciated. -- AdamShand

From EricJohanson:

  • /etc/lilo.conf.install does not point to correct kernel image; (both 2.2.x and 2.4.x)
  • warnings loading modules; /var/log/something is readonly on kernel boot
  • My screen *does* turn off, once I tweaked the bios
  • Why can't I ping/traceroute out via the NAT?
  • having lynx installed would help debugging 'net connections
  • What does this mean? Any why is it saying it sooooo much? I get 1-2 of these per second. /var/log on my system is over 300 megs.
    • I believe this will be fixed with the next update which includes the lastest HostAp drivers. Well see anyway -- AdamShand

Unable to Duplicate

  • DNS Server doesn't load upon bootup
  • DHCP Server doesn't load upon bootup
    • I had this problem when i was setting up my own linux ap image, you the hostap driver takes a little while to initialize, longer than a normal one, so i fixed it by bumping dhcp to S99 in /etc/rc2.d/ --ForrestEnglish

  • Setting up image to work with other devices (EG: SBCs with different PCMCIA bridges)
    • I think this should "just work". Can you document any issues? -- AdamShand

Resolved Bugs

  • AdHoc mode! This would be VERY helpful for SWN folks..... I've heard rumors that we want to use ADHoc for PtP links...

    • This was a known issue with the 2.4.16 kernel, please upgrade to 2.4.17. -- AdamShand

  • Needs update to 2.4.16 (10 Dec 2001)
  • Disable -- MARK -- in syslog ("-m 0") (10 Dec 2001)
  • Add simple batch file or configuration to switch to bridging instead of NAT (see /usr/local/bin/bridge-setup.sh 10 Dec 2001)
  • Add the debian package for Wavemon (new in unstable)
