fun around MIPS: qemu-system-mips

Tags arm, mips, nginx, qemu

Yesterday I was surprised when discovered that,... ehm, well... I'm such a newbie in this... that most routers using MIPS not ARM CPU as I thought before
Since that, I've also tried to look at MIPS in QEMU. There is even less information about this, though debian to help I was surprised I've missed it last time when doing experiments with qemu-system-arm, but now it's very helpful with qemu-system-mips.
I used aurel32's page as a start point: http://people.debian.org/~aurel32/qemu/mips/...

Home router upgrade #2 - NetGear WNR3500L

Posted 11-05-2010 at 09:33 AM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

Yesterday I bought this cute tiny box for my home net. My previous routers were 2 PCs, first one I used since aug 2009 was P1 200mhz, 64mb ram, recent one is old celeron 2.4 ghz, 1g ram which is much more unstable than P1
These ones were using way too much power and make an excessive levels of noise, so I finally decided to trash this stuff and get myself a small box

Initially I was looking for a cheapest router supporting wifi(I have a laptop and I'm already sick of...

upgrading home network router

Yesterday I made a small relocation of server boxes at home and decided to test if I can replace my current Pentium-I MMX 200MHz router with newer computer, which is Celeron 2400 MHz, 1GB of RAM.
Well, I sat there all night till I finally managed to make a minimal required kernel for current hardware platform. Entire system boots in around 30 secs and ready to work. I didn't add automatic start of my internet connection, I usually do it manually.
Now I'm able to see that my ISP actually...

OMFG What a NOOB am I!!!
Today I've occasionally discovered what does 'lm' flag from /proc/cpuinfo mean... I've been using my AMD Sempron 3000+ cpu for already 4 years and had no clue it can handle 64-bit! ahahahah omfg I'm such a noob...
Actually, I was looking for a way to test powersaving features of CPU, I'm buying a new laptop for my mom, and the laptop has no pre-installed OS on it, so I needed a way to test powersaving features. Gentoo livecd fits that needs well. And while...
