DumaOS Update - Recent Progress

Recommended Posts

if a user manual is under construction, then usability must be almost. if not already complete  B)

 

that leaves the fun stuff, which must be user implementation  :D

 

This is what I am thinking, Also it doesnt look like its dumbed down,more like made for ew users to become advanced users.

 

Please tell us its soon o be released :)

Yes when dumbing down the interface please don't forget your advanced users (and those that will become advanced users in due time).

 

Have an "unhide" button that can expose the hidden/advanced settings, and in fact expose more of the system compared to the current interface. 

 

If nothing else there is one way for you to expose a thousand tunables just by providing a single text field, a text field that overwrites /etc/sysctl.d/99-customer.conf with its contents.

So you want a CLI?

Wow fraser looking good have you got any more pictures or details you can show us? And do you have any more information on the time line for release?

 

I'm working on getting some more pictures at the very least. No info on timeline atm.

Once launched we can develop very quickly so if requested we can have more advanced settings etc.

It's very sleek now. It's easy to use but you feel advanced using it.

No, I know I did not buy such a product. But in making a custom frontend to system services I wish such frontends exposed more (not necessarily *all*) of the configuration settings for those services.

 

Let's take PPPoE support in current Netduma firmware. It only exposes two settings: username and password, that's it, yet the pppoe client has dozens of other settings that are not exposed in the interface. I was unlucky to have great problems with PPPoE. There are ppoe client settings for more intelligent handling of timeouts and reconnecting to the provider that could have helped me, but I could not make use of them in any way. Now I can't use PPPoE and am forced to double NAT which is stupid. 

 

sysctl.d snippets in the same way are an interface to the kernel, more relevant to the networking stack of the kernel. Combined with a frontend to ethtool (this alone would be great too) we could experiment with settings that other routers recommend to their gamers.

Hi, I am on VERION 1.03.3 AND I NEED A UPDATE PEOPLE 

Please read this thread and then post that you require an update. It may take a couple of days before you get a reply but if you are on an earlier version of the OS then you will need to do as requested in the thread. Cheers
