I would like to see LVM become available - need it to use the NAS capabilities for an office deployment. Is optware the right mechanism? Seems like it, but it's not obvious that optware is set up to integrate kernel modules (needed by LVM). And I am not sure where the right place is to ask for a new optware package.
Being a newb to tomatoUSB (but not tomato) and development on the platform in particular, I am not very clear on the relationship between optware and tomatoUSB. Is the optware repo specific to tomatoUSB or, as the repo URL implies, the repo is shared with DD-WRT? Does this mean DD-WRT is similar enough to tomatoUSB? What differences are vital?
I played with adding LVM to tomatoUSB and got a little progress (built the device-mapper driver and was able to load it and have the 'dmsetup' bits from optware talk to it), but building lvm and doing the integration with the boot sequence seems beyond me… I would be happy to help with what I can, if someone wants to provide guidance and advice.
