OPENWRT-PACKAGE DEPENDENCIES:
kmod-batman-adv (this depends on kmod-lib-crc16)
wireless-tools

DEBIAN DEPENDENCIES:
batman-adv seems to be installed on default. You need to install batctl, if that script is not available
this script tries to setup everything using the sys/class interface

WHAT DO THIS PACKAGE?:
- It installs on script with all needed defaults running in Mesh mode
- Script set up everything needed to get the Box in Mesh mode
- Box in Mesh don't have to be a AP at same time

WHY AN EXTRA PACKAGE?:
- I don't want to add the Mesh-software dependency to the normal PB-Package
- Easier Update if something changes


NOTEBOOK?:
- Not every notebook can hold two network-interfaces online
- You can join the network download this <on Work> and do <on work>
- currently there is no iptables included. You won't be able to route
- Software needed: iw, ifconfig, bridge-utils like br-ctl & iptables Including support for "Bridge-nf" in some cases

FAQ:

I'm getting a "SIOCSIFFLAGS: No buffer space available" - what is this?
- It seems you card cannot run with an exchanged MACAdress, switch it
off.
- Remember runnin <scriptname> stop to clean up the partly created stuff
