I just bought a wl500gp, and installed Oleg's 18.104.22.168-7g firmware. It works fine, a really good work! My only problem is that it's a bit short on kernel modules.
First it need a reiserfs module. Unfortunately migrating all my data to ext3 is currently not an option.
The question is: what is THE recommended toolchain and kernel source to build modules. If I get a _stock_ buildroot, generate a MIPS little endian toolchain and compile a _stock_ 2.4.20 kernel modules, will that work?
I'm just asking because I don't want "play" around for days trying useless solutions.
Second question (not that important right now): What is THE recommended way of building userspace applications? I see that this firmware has a nice ipkg based package system. So if I cross-compile an application it fits into the current layout. By this I mean configuration management, linking against shared libs on the system (not static linked apps). Eventually the package could land in the ipkg repository.
Third: does this project has a wiki? Something like wiki.gp2x.org?
