Version of OpenWRT

Postby Cincus » Thu Feb 09, 2012 4:44 pm

I followed through the instructions to install OpenWRT installed onto my Asus WL-520gU (from the Wifi Radio Project), however I am confused about the version of OpenWRT that is being used. The banner says

Code: Select all

KAMIKAZE (bleeding edge, r12857)
which seems to denote a development build.

My goal is to write a program for the WL-520gU, following this tutorial:
http://gargoyle-router.com/old-openwrt-coding.html
In one of the steps, it says to download your corresponding SDK (based upon architecture), from here: http://downloads.openwrt.org/

My question is: Which is the appropriate version/release of the OpenWRT SDK to use with the pre-compiled version of OpenWRT provided by MightyOhm?

Thanks.

Unless Jeff answers this, it may be hard to find which SDK is compatible with the image you find on MightyOhm.com. The easiest thing to do would be to install an official release and use the SDK that comes with it. The downside of this is that you probably won't be able to fit a working wifi radio install on the onboard flash of the router. This means you will need a second USB port and use a USB flash drive for extra storage.

Yeah, I was figuring that if I installed an official release and used the corresponding SDK, I would run into fewer problems.
