Hi,

I have an asus wl500g (same chip as the linksys wrt54g).  I put openwrt
on it and chrooted into a 
experimental/mips/embedded/stages/stage1-mipsel-uclibc-2005.0.tar.bz2
tarball, with the idea of changing the profile and rebuiling.

I set up make.conf like so:

    CFLAGS="-Os -pipe -march=mips1"
    CHOST="mipsel-unknown-linux-gnu"

and the profile like so:

    make.profile -> /usr/portage/profiles/default-linux/mips/2005.0

then ran scripts/bootstrap.sh


gnuconfig had some bus errors, but didn't stop the script:

>>> Install gnuconfig-20050602 into >>> /var/tmp/portage/gnuconfig-20050602/image/ category sys-devel

and glibc failed during configure: checking for suffix of object files... configure: error: cannot compute suffix of object files: cannot compile See `config.log' for more details. !!! ERROR: sys-libs/glibc-2.3.5 failed. !!! Function glibc_do_configure, Line 938, Exitcode 1 !!! failed to configure glibc any ideas? I see the mips project website was just updated today, and I just realized last night that the cobalt images are little endian (the asus wl500g is little endian), so I'll try chrooting into one of those images next.
