compiling dd-wrt from source code

Hi

 I have download the dd-wrt source code and the toolchain. When I compile the code I get the following error.

which: no mipsel-linux-uclibc-gcc in (/usr/kerberos/sbin:/usr/kerberos/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/root/bin:/opt/brcm/hndtools-mipsel-linux/bin:/opt/brcm/hndtools-mipsel-uclibc/bin)

How can I fix this error?

mipsel-linux-uclibc-gcc your os NO this tool

install a new one!

Install a new OS? I am currently using Fedora 6. What version of fedora should I be using?

No, you Tucky... (s)he means

No, you Tucky... (s)he means you should apt-get install mipsel-linux-uclibc-gcc, even --reinstall; or yum or emerge or whatever your flavour is.

(ok, so I study Chinese so I could figure that one out, but with some good will, I'm sure you would've been up to it)

When I type mipsel-linux

When I type mipsel-linux-uclibc-gcc at the terminal. The response is :- mipsel-linux-uclibc-gcc: no input files

That tells me mipsel-linux-uclibc-gcc is installed?

Have you exported the

Have you exported the location where u have installed the toolchain to PATH variable .....

I have done the following

I have done the following steps:

1. Download the toolchain "hnd-tools-3.2.3.tgz"
2. Put "hnd-tools-3.2.3.tgz" into "/opt/brcm"
3. Run the following commands to extract the toolchain:

cd /opt/brcm
tar zxvf hnd-tools-3.2.3.tgz
ln -s hndtools-mipsel-uclibc-3.2.3 hndtools-mipseluclib

4. Edit your user ~/.bash_profile to include the toolchain paths:

PATH=/opt/brcm/hndtools-mipsel-linux-3.2.3/bin:/opt/brcm/hndtools-mipsel-uclibc-3.2.3/bin:$PATH:$HOME/bin

What other steps am I missing?

hmm ... this is not the

hmm ... this is not the proper tool chain.
For Compiling DD-WRT u need the following toolchain and need to the below mentioned steps to set up the tool chain.

1> wget http://www.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/downloads/others/sourcecode/toolchains/to...
2> tar -jxf toolchains.x86.debian.sp1.tar.bz2
I m assuming that toolchain has been untarred in /home/dd-wrt

3> sudo ln -s /home/dd-wrt/toolchains/4.1.0-uclibc-0.9.28/ /opt/4.1.0
4> sudo ln -s /home/dd-wrt/toolchains/3.4.6-uclibc-0.9.28/ /opt/3.3.4
5> sudo ln -s /home/dd-wrt/toolchains/3.4.6-uclibc-0.9.28/ /opt/3.3.6
6> sudo ln -s /home/dd-wrt/toolchains/3.4.6-uclibc-0.9.28/ /opt/3.4.4
7> sudo ln -s /home/dd-wrt/toolchains/3.4.6-uclibc-0.9.28/ /opt/3.4.6

then export PATH by

export PATH=/opt/4.1.0/bin:$PATH

Do these steps and u shud be able to solve tool chain related issues ...
Keep me posted ...

Hi,

Hi,

debian?? I am using fedora 6. Will that matters?

The router is WGR614v8, I download the toolchain from http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2649

Under the section
WGR614v8/WGR614L
For North America Firmware Versions Toolchain, 1.0.17, 1.1.1, 1.1.2, 1.1.11, 1.1.20, 1.1.24

Do still get the debian code?

Thank you

dont use fendora for cross

dont use fendora for cross arch developing. the support is horrible. go gentoo emerge crossdev; crossdev -t mipsel-linux-uclibc
and you are ready to go.

Hi Achilles, the link http://www.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/downloads/others/sourcecode/toolchains/to... does not work, dd-wrt updated their toolchain to current-toolchain.tar.bz2 and they run on 64bit architecture, would u mind you giving me the link or instructions to build the old toolchain. Thank so much!!!
