Barrier Breaker Progress

Given that I am currently a month behind schedule with the Barrier Breaker release, I want to post here on the current progress.

Most of the major features -- in particular the gargoyle-specific kernel modules which are the hardest part -- have been ported. I am now focused on fixing issues with some of the features only available in the larger builds (usb storage, openvpn etc.).

If anyone comfortable with doing their own build wants to be adventurous, it should be possible to clone the git repository checkout the "bb" branch (get checkout bb) and run "make ar71xx.default" to build firmware images with only the features included in small 4MB routers, most of which should now be working in Barrier Breaker.

I will update this thread as work progresses, and there should be an official release soon. Very sorry for the delay, but I am making progress and there will be a new release in the very near future.

cheers Eric,
Does BB by default support more routers?

You offered a while back to help test the Barrier Breaker port (yes I know I'm at least a month behind on this...).

If you still want to help with this, checkout the "bb" branch of gargoyle (git checkout bb), and specifically build the ar71xx.default target (make ar71xx.default) it should work. I'm still working on some issues with the features present in the usb build and the other architectures, but if you want to start testing on the default features it would be very helpful -- I'm sure there are still some bugs in the default features that I haven't caught yet.

Thanks!

Eric
