    I'd also like to build a .c file for my wl-500g and I'm also not sure how to start. But you know that there is a tutorial on how to set up a build environment for the wl-500g(x) at http://www.macsat.com/BuildEnvironment.php? Unfortunatelly, it ends when the interesting part begins and I don't know how to proceed from there.

    Maybe by pushing this thread a bit we'll find someone out there who is able to provide some help on this ;-)

    The goal of the build environment is to be build ipk packages for the nslu2 and wl500 starting from an opensource software available somewhere on the Net (apache, php, pound, etc...).

    If your plan is only to compile and run a few set of .c files you've written, the only things you need is this sub-part of Macsat tutorial (apart of the prerequisites) :
    Code:
    mkdir /opt
    cd /opt < enter > 
    wget http://www.asuscom.de/pub/ASUS/wireless/WL-500g-03/GPL_1927.zip < enter > 
    tar zxf ./GPL_1927.zip < enter > 
    cp -R /opt/broadcom/opt/brcm /opt < enter >
    This will install the Asus cross compilation toolchain (a c compiler able to build stuff for broadcom architecture) on your linux machine.
    You will also need Oleg's patched uClibc :
    Code:
    cd /var/tmp
    wget http://oleg.wl500g.info/1.9.2.7-6b/wl500g-1.9.2.7-6b.tar.bz2
    tar xjf wl500g-1.9.2.7-6b.tar.bz2
    cd wl500g-1.9.2.7-6b
    make uClibc
    When this two points are done, you're ready to compile your own .c stuff using broadcom c compiler :
    Code:
    mipsel-uclibc-gcc -o helloworld helloworld.c
    et voila.

    GPL source code for firmware version 1.9.5.0, is here:

    http://support.asus.de/download/down...Language=en-us

    global: http://dlsvr01.asus.com/pub/ASUS/wir...3/GPL_1950.zip
    usa: http://dlsvr03.asus.com/pub/ASUS/wir...3/GPL_1950.zip
    europe: http://dlsvr02.asus.com/pub/ASUS/wir...3/GPL_1950.zip

    beware... it's 170MB...

    NOTE: this isn't a zip file... you should rename it to .tar.gz our .tgz and extract it with:
    tar -zxvf your_file.tgz

    1.9.5.0 firmware sources does not contain compiler.
    1.9.2.7 does. The actual link is ftp://ftp.asuscom.de/pub/ASUS/wirele...3/GPL_1927.zip

    Oleg,

    What is your plan for future custom firmware ?
    Are you still working on the 1.9.2.7 branch or did you switch to 1.9.5.0 (which seems to support WDS over WPA, my personnal need )

    JF, I'm now working on 1.9.2.7-6c. Perhaps there would be 1.9.5.0-1 or something, which would be 1.9.2.7 based (but includes 1.9.5.0 fixes), as moving to 1.9.5.0 is a big pain...
    JF, actually you should consider switching to OpenWRT, as it has web interface now.

    Uhmm... Can you advice a recovery method.. Downloaded it twice, both are damaged +(

    Oh i completly forget to sayed that i have try these : http://wl500g.info/showpost.php?p=22732&postcount=3 and i have these :
    utopia wl500g-1.9.2.7-6b # make uClibc
    make -C /var/tmp/uClibc all install CROSS=mipsel-linux-
    /bin/sh: mipsel-linux-gcc: command not found
    /bin/sh: mipsel-linux-gcc: command not found
    make[1]: mipsel-linux-gcc : commande introuvable
    make[1]: Entering directory `/var/tmp/uClibc'
    rm -f include/asm;

    The path '/opt/brcm/hndtools-mipsel-linux/mipsel-linux/include/asm' doesn't exist.
    I bet you didn't set KERNEL_SOURCE, TARGET_ARCH or UCLIBC_HAS_MMU
    correctly when you configured uClibc. Please fix these settings.

    make[1]: *** [headers] Erreur 1
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/var/tmp/uClibc'
    make: *** [uClibc] Erreur 2


    The message are clear but i do exactly what they said in the How to...
    In the repertory /opt/brcm/ i have

    Well, DID you have a log at the config.log file? There you should probably be able to see what the error was yourself. I had a similar problem recently where I had bogus CFLAGS parameters that I had to get rid of first.

    Hi Jean,

    I am trying to compile helloworld.c just to learn how it works.
    My hardware is WL-500gP V2, I installed Koppel firmware to get my cellular modem connected.

    Aus server is temporary down.

    As your HowTo is already some years old, please tell me if the GPL sources are still valid version for my router running today Koppel .
    If not, what GPL sources should I select and from what place ?

    greetings,

    Happy New Year

    Darius

    BTW I will try to compile Linux Dialog for running my basic shell scripts.
