BPI-R4-MT76-OPENWRT-V21.02. build Error

@frank-w May I ask why the device’s MAC address changes every time flash new firmware image?

Afaik Mac adress changes on every reboot because the eeprom has no fixed max and uses a random one.

From which interface you are talking about?

This is not too important, I’m just wondering that it doesn’t have a fixed MAC address, I see it happening on all ports. Please advise me, do I need to extend the default memory partition? I want to use more docker i have seen dangowrt talk about this

Imho openwrt is not capable for using docker or other virtualisation. It is a router-os…

But that was one reason i have debian on my routers :slight_smile: (and easier update kernel vs. Userspace tools).

Let me ask, why can’t I find the eMMC partition when using lsblk. I am running OS on SD card and only see the SD card’s partition image

This is because mediatek filogic chips only have 1 mmc controller which is switched via hw switch between sdcard and emmc

We do support docker as well as podman officially in OpenWrt, and we even got our own minimalist container runtime called uxc. Actually a “router OS” turns out to be quite useful as a container host as well :wink: After all, you may need a complex network setup for the traffic between containers, or containers and the outside world.

And OpenWrt fork prplWrt even went as far as implementing support for CNI as a netifd protocol handler…
