Ubiquity Routerstation Pro?
Greetings fellow 'MIPS'ers-
I've just acquired a Ubiquity Routerstation Pro  embedded board. It's
running an Atheros AR7161 MIPS CPU @ 680MHz, 128MB DDR RAM, mPCI slots,
onboard USB, etc.
Has anyone successfully run Debian on this board? I come from the 'ARM
world' where I typically populate the rootfs using debootstrap, and
compile a kernel using vanilla source from kernel.org and a cross
compile toolchain (either from Codesourcery  or self build with
I've got an SD card bootstrapped using:
debootstrap --foreign --arch=mips lenny /usr/src/mipsdevel/rootfs/SD_1
But of course, it is of no use until I can get a proper kernel booting
on the board. The vanilla kernel source from kernel.org does not have
any options in 'make menuconfig' for the Atheros CPUs, nor does
packages.debian.org list any 'linux-image-*' packages for the MIPS
architecture other than Malta, SGI, or Broadcom.
Any thoughts, pointers, or suggestions to get me moving forward? I've
looked at doing a custom compile of OpenWRT which ships on the unit and
has support using their make system but until I have more experience on
this platform, I cannot move my software over to a 'micro' environment
with busybox, uClibc, etc.
I just want my 'near vanilla' Debian Lenny on MIPS!
