LEDE first run configuration guide

LEDE, formerly OpenWRT, is a free open source Linux based operating system aimed at networking hardware.
Every time the system is upgraded to a newer version using the so called “Sysupgrade BIN” image every package the user manually installed gets lost; this makes the upgrade process very tedious especially if one does not properly write down all the customization he has made.
I don’t use many custom packages but QoS, USB support and vnstat are a must have.

.:. QoS
Install “qos-script” and “luci-app-qos”

.:. USB support
Install “kmod-usb-storage”, “usbutils”, “block-mount”.
Mountpoints can be specified from Luci’s menu “System” -> “Mount Points”.

.:. vnStat
Install “luci-app-vnstat”.
vnStat temp files target path can be configured by editing the following file:

DatabaseDir "/mnt/usb/vnstat"
look at the "About me" page.
