Well I recently came to Tomato from dd-wrt, and I used optware on my RT-N16, and saw that you guys didn't have a easy way to install Optware on your firmware, so with some minor editing of fraters script, and testing (on my RT-N16 with tomato), I created a easy to use optware install script! I used it myself, and was able to get transmission working over the web GUI with this, I hope this helps out the project!
This is how I have it setup, keep in mind this drive is all I have plugged in, so you may have to edit it to get it working correctly for you.
Here's what you do:
1. Format a jumpdrive to ext3, and plug it into the router.
2. Go to http://192.168.1.1/ then USB and NAS, and then USB Support.
3. Enable Core USB Support, USB 2.0, USB Storage Support, Ext2 / Ext3, Automount, and click Save.
4. Add the Following to Run after mounting:
mount -o noatime -t ext3 -w /dev/sda1 /opt
and the following to Run before unmounting:
then click Save at the bottom again.
5. Click unmount, then remount the jump drive.
6. Exit out of the Router GUI, and telnet to the router.
7. Login and run "mount" and make sure the drive is mounted to /opt. If not, un-mount it, and remount it again in the GUI. If it still doesn't mount, post here, and I will try and help.
8. If so, run the following code:
wget -O /tmp/prep_optware http://bit.ly/bjpspO
(This file is hosted on a site I currently run for someone, so that's why it has a shortened URL)
9. Now to start the script!
10. When its done, enjoy optware!
I have done this, and ran transmission successfully using this Tutorial from DD-WRT with some minor editing. (Will make a tutorial of this aswell for the wiki once/if im approved to help out)
The command "service" that is included with optware does not bring a list up of current running packages. My guess is the command "service" is allready a package installed with tomato default, so it takes the command. To run the optware service manager, use the following command:
This was done on a RT-N16 using the EXT build, so I don't know if it will work for you, so share your findings!
Also, I will make a picture walk through if anyone is interested!
