Hello,
is there a debian guest for metarouter?
I mean for PPC or MIPS hardware version.

Thanks,
Mario

you can check the patch for OpenWRT it should not be so much different for other linux distros, just that you have to use microLib (ulib).

So basically there is no port available.

It is a pity that a feature so powerful like metarouter is not used very much due to very few ready images.

I have found debwrt project and asked them to help. Is mikrotik interested? A real debian is very useful as metarouter guest.

there is one german guy who managed to make run debian as a guest - he used parts from OpenWRT and recompiled it similary to OpenWRT. However i do not know if he will share his research materials, but you can find him via search engines and ask
