''Help Me!!'' pls..this is a very important firmware/router project



I desperately need help and advice....
I have posted this entry under the networking as well as programming forums.
I am currently doing this project on the WRT54G linksys router. The above mentioned router is linux based.
Right now I am suppose to compile source codes and flash it into firmware for the router.
My purpose is to allow the final device to have at least a low level of intrusion detection signals.
Where can I get the relevant source codes for the above router and the source codes must be able to be compiled successfully using the gcc compiler.
Is anyone experienced in the WRT54G linksys router or firmware relating projects? Does anyone know how to use the gcc compiler and compile router source codes?

I really hope some one will help me as I am very stressed up right now. I am now left with about 3 weeks to do this project.

Please, will someone help me?

First of all... Stop spamming all over LQ forum!!!
Please keep the moderators from being stressed while you're stressed...
It is VERY OBVIOUS that you DID NOT do your homework...
I googled the very first time... and I've got the source code...
Go google yourself...

ghostdev85 , u haf used harsh words on babyswan , if u have the link for the source code why dont u just tell her where is it ? if she can find it easily on the net , like u said , she would not have come to post her problem on the forum.and please put yourself in her shoe , she is using this linux machine for the first time. And she didnt mean to spam , because her previous post no one reply her. so your reply say that you have the source code can u tell her how u google?if possible give her the website.

Google "wrt54g source code" I found it on the first page.

WalkAlone, in most cases people do not bother to actually search. No matter what they say.

Be aware that there are a lot of different versions of the WRT54g. Not all of them run Linux out of the box. Since the hardware is different from version to version the same software may not run on each.

Walkalone

I have read your other posts. On a scale of 1 to 10(with ten being the hardest) everything you guys have posted thus far does not even rate a 1. When one gets into debugging code on a cross compiler your will be in the 8+ range. This is going to be a lot of work. From our point of view, being able to Google a basic problem is a beyond a base prerequisite of cross compiling. It is like a person who cannot read saying that they are writing a book. I do not think our statements have been harsh, just realistic.

Good Luck
Lazlow

cross-compiling is always a big problem, expert or not. There are lots and lots of issues. If you are newbies to programming and to Linux you aren't going to get it done in a reasonable period of time.
