Nload cross-compiled for chumby One

The second question I asked after installing Tor was how much bandwidth is my chumby One really consuming? nload is a utility that can tell you that.

Cross-compiling nload sucks, particularly due to the fact that it needs ncurses, which is itself a pain to cross-compile, due to the fact that ncurses, as part of the install process, needs to run a bunch of host executables to create various files. I actually didn't even really successfully cross-compile it, to get nload to work I just modified the final loader command line to point at the entire directory of .o files that ncurses makes and I had it sort it out from there.

So, I'll just drop a link to an nload binary here.


./nload -i 2000 -o 2000 wlan0
