I did exactly the same approach, although I am still using the kernel and kernel modules' from debwrt. So far I have been able to create a rootfs with multistrap, and thanks to Héctor who presented me qemu-*-static, I have been able to (almost) configure the rootfs. I still have some issues wich I'll try to solve today (I think they are related to setting up some variables before attempting to run dpkg -- configure -a, I remember I have read a wiki page about that). The system boots, although I haven been able to properly mount the rootfs (without running dpkg --configure -a, it would mount as ro, with the not-so- well configured rootfs I am getting a fs error). Let's see what I can achieve today :-) Kinds regards, Lisandro. -- Lisandro Damián Nicanor Pérez Meyer http://perezmeyer.com.ar/ http://perezmeyer.blogspot.com/
