I like to have a nice terminal environment – also on my Edgerouter. With a few modifications to my original article http://www.cron.dk/tmux/ this is possible.
One big advantage is that if you loose SSH connection, you will always continue where you left. I also like having my current configuration in one tab, while doing configuration in another.
First we need to configure the Edgerouter to download software packages
set system package repository wheezy components 'main contrib non-free' set system package repository wheezy distribution wheezy set system package repository wheezy url http://http.us.debian.org/debian commit sudo apt-get update
Now we can install TMUX
apt-get install tmux
Now I make a few changes to the ~/.tmux.conf (please see original article)
#set -g mouse on #bind -n F12 resize-pane -Z #set -g status-position bottom set -g status-interval 60 set -g status-right '#[fg=colour255,bg=colour53,bold] #(cut -d " " -f 1-3 /proc/loadavg) | %H:%M %Z '
This is necessary, because there is no mouse driver on the Edgerouter , and it’s pretty slow processor can’t handle screen updates every second.
