Actually, there is no upnp in the lite version. If you want to run it, you will need to download it from the repository into the /var/ directory, and then try running it from there - not easily done. If you need upnp, then you should not use the lite version.

Create a 64kb minix partition. See firmware-faq/#minix

Got to wonder why - the lite version deliberately omits upnp! In non-lite versions miniupnpd is renamed upnpd and has an associated miniupnpdcmd.sh helper script. I guess you would have to edit/recompile with path names on /nvram or /var/tmp, I recall the default is /usr/sbin. squashfs-lzma compression is very effective at keeping size of filesystem size down, it may be tricky keeping enough space on a writable minix flash partition mounted as /nvram.

I was thought that Lite version could help to reduce consumption of Flash RAM on my DSL600e modem.

It does reduce the space taken on the flash memory. That is why you will be able to create a 64kb minix partition. But you will have to delete the partition if you want to go back to a non-lite firmware.
