Well, during compiling it says it can't find defconfig-bcm947xx and the only similar file I found is defconfig-bcm947xx-slimrtr, so I renamed and it compiled, but I don't know if it's the right one anyway..

I did that too.

You can judge for yourself it it is a feature or bug;-)

Devs can care less about Broadcom. I was having a quick talk with nbd, one of the openwrt dev team and he was saying that Broadcom is hard to deal when it comes to bugs or drivers problems, the opposite of Atheros, that gives all the info they need and actually pays sometimes for bugfixes.

I can't blame BS or Eko if that's the case and I bet Atheros builds are easier to build.

I'll try rolling back the kernel, but your switch driver crash seems different from my crash from it trying to use instructions that BCM4785 doesn't know.

phuzi0n, this is because you are not using the same toolchain I use:-)

If I use the same toolchain you guys use I get exactly the same error about reserved instruction. That is why you cannot really trust the crash information, there is some memory corruption happening which basically makes this crash info useless.
As I said, I can use for example portions of the asus et sources/headers and it works without the crash. Since eko, BS don't suffer from this they must be using different sources to compile, this also explains all the other problems, like missing symlinks, configures that are not beeing called etc.

Out of curiosity, where did you got your toolchain?

Thanks!

I created it myself. It includes patches that are needed for dd-wrt, for example modified if.h.

So after a lot of putzing around trying to roll back to r15000 and still not being able to build, I finally deleted the kernel sources, cleaned up the SVN mess it caused, and checked out r15000 of the kernel again. The resulting image finally boots!

Great news phuz~! I've abandoned this project a bit, but with this workaround I might go back to it..

It's nice to have the ability of customizing dd-wrt..

Kong do you know how to clean the kernel without it deleting the wireless drivers? I keep having to redownload them every time I clean the kernel to try to get the new kernel to compile a working ethernet driver.

Hi phuzi0n,

comment line:

clean-files += $(SRCBASE)/wl/sys/*.o $(SRCBASE)/wl/sys/.*.*.cmd $(WLCONF_H) $(WLCONF_O)

in drivers/net/wl/wl_generic.mk

They still get wiped out when cleaning the kernel.

It works here and does not remove the drivers, if I run make clean inside kernel src dir.
