Gluon 2016.1.6


  • build: fix nodejs host build on Debian Wheezy (#776)

  • build: fix parallel builds with Make 4.2+

    Trying to use -j N with Make 4.2 would spawn an unlimited number of processes, eventually leading to memory exhaustion.

  • build: fix occasional build failure in libpcap package

  • build: don’t require hexdump for x86 builds (#811)

    Trying to build Gluon for x86 on systems without hexdump would silently generate broken images.

  • Add support for DNS servers given by their link-local IPv6 address in Router Advertisements (#854)

  • ar71xx-generic: correctly setup LNA GPIOs on CPE210/510 (#796)

    Improves the reception by about 20dB.

  • ar71xx-generic: switch default WAN/LAN assignment on Ubiquiti UAP Pro (#764)

    Switch to the usual “PoE is WAN/setup mode, secondary is LAN” scheme. This only affects new installations; the assignment won’t be changed on updates unless the configuration is reset.

  • ar71xx-generic: fix ath10k memory leak (#690)

  • ar71xx-generic: add support for new TP-Link region codes (#860)

    TP-Link has started providing US- and EU-specific firmwares for the Archer C7 v2. To generate Gluon images installable from these new firmwares, the GLUON_REGION variable must be set to eu or us in or on the make command line (the images will still be installable from all old firmwares without region codes).

Known Issues

  • Default TX power on many Ubiquiti devices is too high, correct offsets are unknown (#94)

    Reducing the TX power in the Expert Mode is recommended.

  • The MAC address of the WAN interface is modified even when Mesh-on-WAN is disabled (#496)

    This may lead to issues in environments where a fixed MAC address is expected (like VMware when promicious mode is disallowed).

  • Inconsistent respondd API (#522)

    The current API is inconsistent and will be replaced eventually. The old API will still be supported for a while.
