To develop a clean, GPL compliant port of the Linux kernel, drivers and tools to
"802.11b wireless gateway controller" system-on-chip, used in a variety of
wireless access point and gateway devices.
The project is presently in the alpha stage. All software components
needed to build a fully operational system are available and their overall
development status can be generally described as "functional". These include:
32-bit Linux kernel with math emulation, memory and cache manager
driver for on-chip Ethernet adapters
driver for on-chip wireless adapter with master/station/monitor modes and WEP support
system console via on-chip serial port
flash ROM access via standard MTD (with optional partitioning) Read this
compressed boot image builder/loader with options for RAM or ROM images
A cross-compiler toolchain is
also available, with complete source code. Besides compiling the kernel files
and drivers, the toolchain can be used to build other open-source tools
and programs with only minimal effort - usually as easy as adding an extra
flag to the command line.
New version 0.0.5 of the wireless driver released. This version
includes the latest patch from jirif
and an important update of copyright notes in David Young's code -
apologies to dyoung for the initial mis-attribution.
