OpenWrt on my Linksys box!


Sat up the whole of last night (well,till 3:30AM) - but that was worth the effort! Got OpenWrt running on my Linksys WRT54G! The `white russian' development environment was also set up properly - I can now write kernel modules and run them on the Linksys box!

BusyBox v1.00 (2005.11.23-21:46+0000) Built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

 WHITE RUSSIAN (RC4) -------------------------------
  * 2 oz Vodka   Mix the Vodka and Kahlua together
  * 1 oz Kahlua  over ice, then float the cream or
  * 1/2oz cream  milk on the top.
Learn't one thing from the whole exercise (the hard way - a sleepless night and around 200Mb of downloads): when your build fails, you might have to check your version of `make'! Don't try building OpenWrt with GNU make version less than 3.80! Ubuntu can be a good development environment, if you just download and install a few packages. I did the whole thing in Ubuntu. Will write in detail about the whole exercise soon .....
