Mikrotik RB532 – single user mode.

December 1, 2007 — 2 Comments

>Today I managed to get shell prompt on Mikrotik’s Routerboard 532. So now we have 3 platforms with single user mode for FreeBSD/mips, not very useful :) The last problem was getting high-level console interface working. I always fell lost when it comes to resource allocation and uart stuff. I should write a couple of posts on these subjects to memorize all details better.

  1. >Hello!

    Just wondering how this project is going. I’ve been working on Soekris devices and the Mikrotik hardware is quite attractive price-wise.

    Here’s some stuff on the TinyBSD based solutions – http://code.google.com/p/tinybsdap/ and http://wiki.confero24.com/index.php?TinyBSD_AP

    >I’m going to test multiuser boot this week. FreeBSD/mips got working multiuser mode for GXemul/malta emulation and Octeon-based boards. Thanks for the link to tinybsd stuff. I’ll take a look.
