uclinux on Netgear RP614 router

Initially I got a source tar ball from some chinese web site. But the source code was originally for little endian systems. So I did a lot of work modifying it and debugging it. I got the kernel booted up but the shell crashed.

Then I got the big endian tar ball from and started working on that and migrated my original changes over. Luckily I got my linux booted up and got a shell.

This is the first time I have ever really working on a uclinux source tree. So I did a lot of stupid things and I had to google a lot so that I got why what was wrong. It was sometime painful but it was really fun.
