or Fonera 2.0n

that issue has been solved by doing in an ssh session
I believe it was something like
cat 2.2.5 > /etc/fon_revision
but do check with ls /etc |grep "fon_"  and verify contents & try to
downgrade it's version to 2.2.5
then you will notice extra plugins :-)
I guess if you downgrade it to 2.2.4 you will even see more plugins as well
(olpc, dyndns (default included in 2.2.5+), ...);

when 2.2.6 is launched it will not be necessary anymore...

As soon as I can create an image I'll test.
btw could you publish your images somewhere?
in the end if it fails again I might flash yours

By the way, I didn't mention, I did the compilation using Debian Lenny in a

I noticed my fonera wasn't synced correctly with ntp services...
