Can someone point me in the right direction


I was wondering if anyone has experience compiling custom packages for OpenWRT. Basically, I want MOSH ( on my router, for when I have to SSH over long distance wifi links, and reliability can be subjective. I don’t get how such a simple package is not in the OpenWRT repos, but thats beyond me.

So I’ve taken a look at the OpenWRT wiki about Cross-Compiling, but I’m a little confused, do I want to cross compile this package? The MOSH project gives directions on their site for compiling on normal linux systems. Should I follow these steps, or is there a better route?

If anyone who has done this kind of work in the past could kindly point me to some literature or wiki posts that they used, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your time!

I cannot open their website.

MOSH website is up for me.

today, it is still not available here.

Need to try a VPN but my VPN subscript is just expired.


Still up for me.

I’m disappointed in their webmaster for blocking China. Sorry about that Alfie.

Basically their site gives the following compiling instructions:

Latest release: Extract mosh-1.3.0.tar.gz, then
$ cd mosh-1.3.0
$ ./configure
$ make
# make install
Would the compiling process be similar for OpenWRT, or completely different?
