    I was wondering is there some additional software in the form of
    binaries. (satori4.0)

    I'm particulary interested in these killer apps :

    iftop - really avesome app (http://www.ex-parrot.com/~pdw/iftop/)
    arp <- arp not works in my current satori!? any idea
    watch <- didint worked too
    less - ?!! i know there is more in busybox but it is very limited.

    as u see all of them are diagnostic apps ..
    How such program will be copied and preserved over reboot !!

    the main problem afaik is ram space on the WRT54G.

    Yea, Toxic has a good point. You get double-dinged for software on the router. Because the filesystem is in ram, the file being there takes up space, then running the program takes up more memory. (Though I'm sure the ramdisk and program running memory are separate).

    You should be able to compile anything with the source for Satori and tools (what I didn't realize is when you get the source for Satori and the Linksys source, you kinda have to "put them together" correctly making sure only the right things overlap.)

    I've compiled oidentd for the router, and have a few other binaries. I was running snmpd on it, but the binary itself is 730k ... ouch. I would try compiling those other utilities and then trying them one at a time to see their impact. You'll probably find there's only like 1 or 2 that you really can't live without.

    that is bad :"(

    Yeah i understand now.
    that is why i was asking for separate binaries so that anyone can
    strip what it dont need and add what need.
    The hard part is someone to prepare these binaries :") 'cause they have to be MIPS.

    I'm with GS so I had to have a little more RAM :")

    Now I see they are really big.

    has anyone successfully compiled a iftop binary for the sveasoft firmware?

    if so can you post a link to your binary
