So got one of these for an Openwrt install

http://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/unbranded/a5-v11

Built an image for it, installs well, does all the Openwrt stuff you woud expect-went to install the Openwrt mipsel Neorouter package-but comes back with an error saying the architecture is wrong?
The image has to precompiled from trunk, which I'm guessing is closer to Chaos Calmer than Barrier Breaker-would this be the cause of the incompatability-or is it the chipset?. The chipset is ok, I think :-) but I would welcome some feedback on whether this beastie will work with NR.

Going to try a BB image, and see if that makes a difference anyway.

cheers

Hi cabsandy,

Yes. It's CPU specific. I'm afraid that NR supports several most popular arch so far. Without compiling against specific toolchain for RT5350, it won't work.

Thanks,

Kev
Thanks for the speedy reply.
I'm still a bit confused though-I'm compiling against the chipset, as recommended by the Openwrt guys for this router-that is, RT5350.

Does NR work on the RT5350 chipset based routers?-that's the bit that I'm not clear on. As when I flash the router with the compiled image, openwrt works perfectly-its just that NR doesn't! ;)

If I understand correctly what you saying (looking at other posts on toolchains), this $8 router, and the toolchains it has/uses, is not one you have compiled NR against at this time-and as a result, wont install or work?

cheers

Hi cabsandy,

No. I'm afraid that NR doesn't support RT5350 yet. NR supports Broadcom BCM947XX/953xx, Atheros AR&xxx/AR9xxx and x86.

Ahh-ok.

To be fair, compiled and got it working on the CC chain-works well as an Openwrt box but I think NR client running on it would kill it! Syslog takes up 18% CPU :-)
