dsl + fritz
- I saw the phoneline is terminated with a capacitor and some
resistors.. Is this the reason for 3Mbit instead of 4Mbit? The
DSL spectrum shown by the fritzbox is completely 1st order
lowpass. Is this normal? Doesn't look like it is:
- With FRITZ!Box Fon 5124 Annex A, Firmware version 57.04.47 telnet
can be enabled by dialing #96*7*
So with shell access, I was wondering, what toolchain is necessary
to build programs, and can the switch be made to support VLAN?
Now, have a look at this one. It mentions debootstrap.
debootstrap --arch mipsel etch fritz http://debian.i/debian
actually, this needs --foreign and even then doesn't work well..
i copied some the old zorro initial mipsel-lenny install on a usb
stick, but now i'm having trouble chrooting into the tree..
it supports netcat+tar to transfer files
netcat -l -p 12345 | tar xf
it does look like the firmware is completely read-only.. only /var is
i tried statically linked mipsel binary for busybox but failed
ok. this one works:
now i can chroot using:
mount /dev/sda1/ /var/tmp/disk
./busybox chroot /var/tmp/disk bash
trying dist-upgrade to lenny
(btw, the acer one works nice in keyboard-only operation, with a large
maybe it's best to copy zorro install instead of trying to get it to
work from scratch again.. otoh, it might be nice to see how exactly
* chrooted sshd
ok.. it's not lenny that's running on zorro, but etch.
upgrade to lenny failed. some script caused illegal instruction,
probably out of memory..
maybe enable swap?
ok.. etch seems to work.
for ssh, the trick is to
mount /proc # maybe not necessary
hmm.. looks like that image was already configured..
the box has about 15 MB of free RAM, which is nice..
so.. how to boot it properly?
maybe it's easiest to boot it externally using telnet,
