Building an additional Kernel Module for the DNS-320 / DNS-325

A while back i updated the openvpn-package with the tun.ko for the DNS-320 and DNS-325. Problem was, that i needed to compile a kernel module first. Thankfully D-Link provides a ZIP-File with the sources of Code used for the DNS-320. Unfortunately it didn’t work out of the box, but i was able to pull a script which works together for you. If you want to download all my finished modules just visit this page.

Installation of Optware on the D-Link DNS-320, DNS-321, DNS-325, DNS-343, DNS-345 and Conceptronic CH3MNAS

Many people asked me to compile various packages over the last few years.

Then i often told the requestor to install optware which originated from the NSLU2-Project and provides many addition packages. I didn’t have experienc on this, so i had to leave them in the dark.
