TomatoUSB on Cisco Linksys WRT610

Installing TomatoUSB required first installing DD-WRT, then “upgrading” to TomatoUSB.

Setting up optware:

  • Added an external hard disk formatted ext3, with a 512MB swap partition. Set up an fstab entry to automount the larger partition at /opt.
  • Followed instructions on TomatoUSB website for installing optware

Setting up mkvtoolnix:

  • Needed to install prerequisite libraries via ipkg
  • Needed to build Boost libraries. Downloaded from boost.org onto router, installed build tools via ipkg
  • ./bootstrap.sh –prefix=/opt
  • ./bjam –without-python –without-mpi (LOOONG time, a bunch of errors…)
