There are a number of routers these days with the atheros chipset. It would be great if there was a working static build for this architecture. Could the developers please try compile one? I'd be willing to test it on my router which is a TP-LINK TL-1043ND.
Other routers using the same family of chip set: Buffalo WZR-HP-G300NH, Cisco WRT160NL - complete list: https://dev.openwrt.org/wiki/ar71xx
My attempts so far:
I have found a ipk: mediatomb_0.11.0-5_mips.ipk from http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/optware/openwrt-atheros/cross/unstable/ which after painfully install all the dependencies still did not want to work on my router; mediatomb starts but just hangs. I don't think this is the correct build for the ar71xx.
I see the startup banner if I start mediatomb from the console/telnet but it doesn't show the URL as a poster mentioned in http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=436304.
If I start up using the init script "S90mediatomb start" then it just freezes at "Starting mediatomb:", the log file also reads:
2010-05-02 03:28:28 INFO: Loading configuration from: /opt/etc/mediatomb/config.xml
and nothing more. top shows mediatomb process taking up 100% of CPU and about 25% of memory. It doesn't accept incoming connections on the port.
I tried using -debug and -D but those switches are not supported by my build.
I tried simply my config.xml (in /opt/etc/mediatomb)to the bare minimum but still freezes.
Is it a MIPS architecture? If yes, yоu might want to try the static binaries from our download page, I think there should be two MIPS variants there. I still did not have the time to update the static packages to 0.12.1, this is on my TODO list.
Our static binaries do not require any dependencies.
I tried both MIPS static packages and neither worked. Perhaps it isn't MIPS and my confusion was because of the folder where I got the package (atheros) as opposed to ar71xx. atheros is for older chipsets while ar71xx is for later atheros chipsets.
Hence I guess a static binary for ar71xx architecture would need to be built.
