OpenMSS Firmware

Original Firmware



Thanks to migmog, unslung optware now supports MSS.

What’s Optware or Unslung? The OptWare package system was originally created to accompany the Unslung firmware for the NSLU2 (originally the packages were also called Unslung packages). It has since been expanded to cover a variety of other platforms.

This is a simple description on how to download sources and compile packages by your own. Make sure you have installed the toolchain according to GettingStarted.

Download the lastest cvs sources of optware (formerly, unslung):

% cd /home/mss/         (you can use whatever directory you want, of course)
% svn co optware

Compile it using optware target MSS:

% cd optware
% make OPTWARE_TARGET=mss [<package name>]

Some applications may require that you copy the contents of /opt/brcm/hndtools-mipsel-linux/mipsel-linux/lib to your mss’s /opt/lib (Please see this thread in the forum for more information)

Optware mssii feed is up, see this thread in the forum for more information.
