Mips Support

Recommended Posts

Hey, I just installed DD-WRT on my router, thinking that I could run BTSync on it. Unfortunately, my router's CPU isn't supported:

Linux DD-WRT 3.5.7.16 #293 Wed Jul 24 09:38:32 CEST 2013 mips GNU/Linux

So count me as another check mark in the "demand" column of your demand/supply cost analysis of adding MIPS support! :D

I wanted a mips version too. But recently I got an ARM NAS (DS213j). Now I run BTSync on it.

Seriously, do yourself a favour and get a NAS. Transfer speeds on those routers are mediocre anyway.

not on mah 680mhz WNDR3700v2, ze transfer speeds, zey are nice :D

I'd love to believe that :D

Nah, maybe routers are faster now. But I'd rather run services like that on a separate device. If some app crashes and brings down your router, you're without internet.

Only for exactly 75 seconds, the consistently measured time from power on to successful ping of google.ca.  

 

I got this WNDR3700v2 as a gift.  At the time, it was the most powerful, most expensive router that the store had available.  But all we ever did with it was 100mbit home networking.  About 95% of its available power was never ever getting used.  Why buy another NAS, when I've got all that available processing power already, and with one ethernet/wifi-link removed compared to using a NAS through a router?

 

I have experienced crashes on the router because of running Transmission, and they do suck, but they only last 75 seconds.  And it's usually because of a fault with the USB HDD, forcing the router to put all that downloaded data into its itty bitty 64mB of RAM, and then it runs out of RAM, and crashes.

I am using openwork on TL-WR703N  

CPU is Atheros AR7240 CPU @ 400Mhz (MIPS24k core) 

I hope bittorrent sync support MIPS CPU too.

 

Hope I can vote here, I am Chinese, I am never voting because CCP dominate our political life

Hi, I use BT sync on many systems and badly miss a MIPS build. Here in Germany half the homes run a "Fritzbox" as a router and they are MIPS systems. Please, please build a MIPS binary.

I assume there is not development on this issue.

There is no further news on this at present, other than the most recent update from the developers last week which said that MIPS is "not supported yet, and not going to be in next release, sorry"

 

So the developers are aware that there is a degree of interest in MIPS builds, but at present that interest isn't widespread enough for it to be considered a "top priority" for the team.

 

My advice to those who desire MIPS support would be to voice your desire in this thread (if you've not already done so). The developers do keep track of the feature requests forum, and so the features with the most requests & support are likely to be given a higher priority by the developers than those with less suggestions with "votes".
