Welcome to the XINU for Routers Main Page. This is for developing documentation for our development process that began in the summer of 2006. As this is a wiki, you can sign up and begin adding and editing content, uploading images, and generating the needed documentation for our efforts.

Project Outline

  • Goals
  1. Infect WRT54GL Routers with a XINU kernel
  2. Develop XINU to a point where it can control the router's basic functions
  3. Use this platform for a course in embedded systems and/or networking


How to...

More Research

  • TODO: (concrete tasks)
    • Lab Setup Tasks
      • Automate the tftp boot process, so that by default the routers pull down their image from morbius.
      • In the RS-232 in the infrastructure for remotely accesible power cycling.
    • XINU Tasks
      • Port libxc from xinu-ppc so that it compiles and works in xinu-mips (should be done now)
      • Get serial port input working.
      • Determine the interrupt vectors and get the handlers working. (esp. clock interrupt)
      • Context switch ported from PPC to MIPS. (shouldn't be too hard)
      • ... more?
  • TOTHINK: (abstract goals and wishlists)
