#5944 closed enhancement (invalid)

Add ifplugd

Reported by: linus.luessing@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc:


This patch adds ifplugd - a 'Network Interface Plug Detection Daemon' - to OpenWRT's repository. This lightweight daemon can execute scripts when a cable is plugged in or pulled out.

ifplugd compiles and runs fine for me, though the link
detection does not seem to fully work for my Dlink DIR-300
(atheros, ip175c switch chip) yet. The vlans are always shown as
"link beat detected", but I don't know what would have to be
patched for that (ip175c driver? swconfig? ifplugd?
kernel-config?). But maybe it's the best to first add ifplugd
to the openwrt trunk and then I could fill out a new ticket
on trac as it might already work on some platforms (please let me know, if so)? Or does somebody already have a quick fix :)?

Some people were having problems compiling ifplugd. Explicity deactivating some configure-options solved them. (ifplugd.2.patch)

Please submit the patch to the mailing list according to SubmittingPatches. I'll close this ticket to keep trac mostly for actual bugs.
