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 .....


Dijkstra in The Hindu!!!

Seen on the back page of Thursday's Hindu:

If you've never taken 

Dijkstra's path

You've just arrived

at the wrong place

Who would want to market anything using the name of dear Dr.Dijkstra?

This explains the whole thing!

Any takers for www.code4rms.com?
