Synology USB Station 2 first quick overview

Posted 07-16-2011 at 05:56 AM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

Recently I've bought this quite nice boxie, mainly for playing with it.
Here's what I have in mine, I've updated to next available firmware version, 1417, since last one almost got my box broken.
Code:
BusyBox v1.16.1 (2010-09-18 17:01:14 CST) built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

USBStation2> echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches

More fun around MIPS

Posted 01-29-2011 at 09:54 AM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

I thought I finally have to try this myself at last, so I logged in to my Netgear router and started experiments around MIPS assembly.

It isn't much, though, I think I love this architecture It's really easy comparing to x86.

I guess I started at the wrong place. My first step was googling for "MIPS linux syscall", I was trying to find some easy sample code in order to understand how it works and create "hello world" myself. But MIPS is so easy,...

gentoo stage3-x86-uclibc-2008.0 hacking

Posted 01-08-2011 at 02:47 PM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

Long time no posting
Today I'm going to describe my so called experience with gentoo stage3 from 2008, linked against uClibc, a tiny C library for developing embedded environments.
I first met uClibc on my router's tomato-usb firmware. I was amazed when I've seen how small memory usage was, even for coreutils-apps.
Since that I was looking for decent inspiration to try out building my own uClibc-based environment. As I previously wrote (I think I did), I once was an assembler...

My experience with NetGear WNR3500L

Posted 11-08-2010 at 11:43 AM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

Today I've finally make it to reflashing, I was quite busy these days. So, armed with manuals over the net I started the process by uploading .chk of dd-wrt, in order to then upload .bin (renamed .trx) of tomato-usb.
My first mistake was when I uploaded dd-wrt. Actually, that was sorta minimal build, not so fresh also, I am not exactly sure what went wrong but I started to tweak it instead of moving right ahead with uploading tomatousb. When I applied some settings and rebooted it no longer...
