WARNING: this daemon runs as root from systemd, and messes deeply around with networking internals. Only install if you know what you are doing.

Also, if you dint't already know what OLSR does you very likely don't need it.

Still curious? Here's some info about OLSRd:

olsrd and olsrd2 are both Link State Routing Protocol implementations optimized for Mobile ad hoc networks on embedded devices like commercial of the shelf routers, smartphones or normal computers. Sometimes these networks are called "mesh networks". olsrd and olsrd2 are the routing daemons which make up the mesh.

Configuration: without the possibility to create Ad-Hoc Wifi networks in current SFOS, this will need manual configuration on the interface. But see this question on TGO or this post about ways to configure ad-hoc networking.

The daemon comes with minimal configuration in the /etc/olsrd/olsrd.config.sailfishos file.

You will want some plugins as well. Especially txtinfo and jsoninfo are used in the default config of this package, but are not installed along with it. You can find others at the link below:
