    I'm running ntpd on Asus RT-N66U and RT-N16 routers via entware, and would like to run ntpd on a wrt54g as well.

    Unfortunately, entware only supports K26 routers and the wrt54g is K24. Does anyone know of an ntpd package that will run on wrt54g?

    Alternatively, is there a good guide on cross-compiling open-source apps for K24 mips?

    Hi! Yes, there is pretty good HOW-TO's for Optware:
    As for using cross-compilation toolchain, I was writing How-to's for optware toolchain years ago, but it's in Russian, unfortunately.

    I think most easiest way to build ntpd wiil be a native optware compilation.

    Thanks for the response.

    Does Optware run on K24 MIPS R1?

    Entware does not (I know this because I already have a working Entware deployment for my K26 MIPS R2 routers, and its apps silently fail to execute on my wrt54g).

    At least it was (long time ago:)).

    It's definitely MIPS R1 and it's based on k24. This relics was the main reason I started Entware.

    Got ntpd running on my wrt54g by installing OpenWRT and using its built in package manager to install NTP packages to jffs.

    OpenWRT actually ships with a BusyBox implementation of ntpd, but I couldn't get that one to accept incoming connections from LAN peers.
