@randomodbuild:matrix.orgrandomodbuildAlso, does the yggdrasil client run on the openwrt node, or on a computer that is plugged into the node (when I say node I mean the radio that is using 802.11s w/o mesh mode forwarding)17:05:27

@Stephen304:matrix.orgStephen304We run it on the raspberry pi but currently the meshing happens on a separate radio, mostly due to better antenna design. The raspberry pi radio could also do mesh mode but we don't currently since the external radio is waterproof and can be placed outside21:22:33

@darkdrgn2k:tomesh.netDarkDrgn2kRaspberry pi radio can't do 80211s23:46:09
@darkdrgn2k:tomesh.netDarkDrgn2kUnless something changes..23:46:18

@Stephen304:matrix.orgStephen304Hmmm, well the pi could do mesh mode with a different wifi adapter in that case.05:09:57

@darkdrgn2k:tomesh.netDarkDrgn2kWhich are not easy to find :(04:46:41
@darkdrgn2k:tomesh.netDarkDrgn2khttps://github.com/tomeshnet/802.11s-adapters/blob/master/README.md04:47:30
@darkdrgn2k:tomesh.netDarkDrgn2kmpcie adapters are more likely to have 80211s04:48:11
@darkdrgn2k:tomesh.netDarkDrgn2kBut very few boards support mpcie04:48:48
@Stephen304:matrix.orgStephen304I think Will knows of some that work. We abandoned using the pi as a radio a long time ago since pretty much any separate radio with non-pcb antenna will blow it out of the water rf performance wise04:57:59
@darkdrgn2k:tomesh.netDarkDrgn2kYep.. its good for being in the same room thats about it :)13:57:09
@darkdrgn2k:tomesh.netDarkDrgn2kProblem is we found that pushing 1gbps in any non standard way (ie not fast path/accelersted) is no joke :( and thsts not even encrypted13:58:23
@darkdrgn2k:tomesh.netDarkDrgn2kCpus on consumer devices and low end bus just can't hack it13:59:35
@darkdrgn2k:tomesh.netDarkDrgn2kas for pis, they are not really resilient. I wouldn't trust a pi to run for a year without needing the sd card replaced 😛 not to say one couldnt run for a year, but i wouldn't trust it to14:04:58
@darkdrgn2k:tomesh.netDarkDrgn2kright now our super node kit is about 1,300 bucks but is hindered by CPU due to the L2TP backhaul tunnel we use (not even encrypted ☚ī¸ )14:05:58
@cure:matrix.orgcure DarkDrgn2k: that's why I like to network boot my pis ;) 20:17:45
@darkdrgn2k:tomesh.netDarkDrgn2kthere was a project to create a ramdisk os for the pi (mesh orange)21:13:08
@darkdrgn2k:tomesh.netDarkDrgn2kwhere only the boot uses the sd, after that its all ramdisk21:13:24
@cure:matrix.orgcurethat sounds pretty good, particularly on the ones with quite a lot of ram21:45:06

@darkdrgn2k:tomesh.netDarkDrgn2kdepends what your running05:13:51
@darkdrgn2k:tomesh.netDarkDrgn2kwe used it as a steady-state docker image backed by swap05:14:07
@darkdrgn2k:tomesh.netDarkDrgn2k ~shrug~ i alwayt though that was wierd :P 05:14:17

@lurker42o:matrix.orglurkerlol this is amazing02:27:28
@lurker42o:matrix.orglurkerso proud that Bernie used our AP02:27:41
@cure:matrix.orgcureindeed :)02:38:54
