00:22 ds2 j #beagle
00:23 ds2 blah
01:24 [mbm] try the tplink wr702n
01:25 ds2 way too big
01:25 ds2 wait, wrong picture
01:26 ds2 saw the webpage and the picture on top is one of the normal sized boxes
01:26 ds2 hmmm this has no SD slot
01:36 [mbm] yeah, no sd and the micro usb is power only
01:36 [mbm] there's another usb port that's host
01:36 ds2 Hmmmm
01:36 ds2 is there Linux on this thing?
01:37 [mbm] main use of the device seems to be tethering game consoles to wifi
01:37 [mbm] yep, can be reflashed with openwrt
01:37 ds2 how long has it had the openwrt support?
01:37 ds2 I have something similar sized by ASUS that recently (back in April) got openwrt support
01:38 ds2 have you heard of the 'airstash' device?
01:38 [mbm] hmm, dunno .. it's just an atheros soc
01:38 [mbm] if you get the china import it's only about $25
01:38 ds2 hmm that's different...think the asus one is a realtek soc or something like it
01:39 [mbm] dirt cheap, but then it only uas 4m of flash, so not really any room to store anything
01:40 ds2 looking at hte openwrt wiki now...trying to find out if it has a MMU
01:41 ds2 can't tell
01:41 ds2 if I can squeeze bluez into it, this would solve a different problem (trying to get my devices to use Bluetooth PAN/DUN instead of WiFi to save power)
01:41 [mbm] it does
01:42 ds2 nice
01:42 [mbm] you pretty much need an mmu to run linux
01:42 ds2 I see a mod to add more RAM
01:42 ds2 you can run MMUless linux
01:43 [mbm] needs a battery pack to be mobile
01:43 [mbm] you mean uclinux?
01:43 ds2 yep, uClinux
01:43 ds2 there are plenty of USB battery packs around
01:43 ds2 WOW...this device has NOR flash
01:43 [mbm] I mean yeah you can run without an mmu but things quickly fall apart
01:44 ds2 it isn't that bad.. I've tried it
01:44 [mbm] don't think openwrt supports any non mmu devices
01:44 * [mbm] did a nommu android port
01:44 ds2 oh
01:44 ds2 you did? is the sources open?
01:45 ds2 I contemplated that
01:45 ds2 how much ram does it need?
01:46 [mbm] was done on commission for a now defunct project
01:46 ds2 but did the sources get released at the end?
01:46 [mbm] nope
01:46 ds2 and which CPU, if I may ask?
01:47 [mbm] custom chipset
01:47 ds2 is it 'smp' by chance?
01:47 [mbm] it was
01:48 ds2 Hmmmmmmmm
01:48 ds2 why do I get a strange feeling i am thinking of a certain CPU I worked on....
01:48 ds2 did it use the MUSB ipblock?
02:33 * [mbm] doubts it was the same chip
