    I tapped a note off to Carl for whatever the latest src for the firmware, I have some of the stuff we had been working on (v16 for the GL,GS), but appear to be missing the 17rc3 stuff for the SL.

    Anyone have this?

    got a note back from Carl with what he has, excellent.

    Working on a VMWare image so folks not familiar with the whole setup environment can pitch in.

    Or at least folks can make their own custom stuff, try now things, learn, and get a better understanding of what goes into making firmwares.

    stay tuned

    Any progress on the VMware image?

    Actually yes, but its kind of large (5gb). I was using Kubuntu, but if a console based distro was used it could be quite a bit smaller.

    I could put a torrent up of the vmware image or pass instructions along for creating your own, or installing it on a PC/Laptop of your choice.

    Let me know

    5GB is pretty big. Is there a way to split it up in chunks to make it a little more managable? Instructions might be easier for us but you're the one who has to do the work. People also may not have VMware workstation/server to build it either but I guess that would be their problem to download a VMware free edition.

    I dunno, I built the image just fine with vmware player version3 ( I don't have the workstation or server version). v3 can be downloaded from various sources.

    Download Kubuntu 8.04 (newer versions require more tweaking)

    install these packages:

    Change the symlinks for gcc and cpp to point to the 3.4 versions.
    Copy the toolchain and add it to the path (as instructed in the linksys src).

    Then try building the linksys src (without hyperwrt) just to make sure its all good. Note, the SL54 version toolchain is different than the GL version, and needs to be compiled as root.

    The GL version can be compiled as a normal user.
