2013-9-14 RTL8196C support for OpenWRT
Current Linux kernel version 2.6.30. Kernel is with a lot
realtek patches for 819x chips. There is added basic support for 3g modems
out of the box. Release works fine on nprove devices. No others device
Fix gcc 4.6 problems with usb.
Fix problems with 8196d
Move from gcc 4.5 -> 4.8
Move from Linux kernel 2.6.30 -> 3.10
Move from binutils 2.21 -> 2.22
Add other devices not only nprove one.
Long term goal is to add realtek 819x chips to upstream OpenWRT
Add support for as many as possible 3g sticks out of the box
irc freenode.net #nprove (for nrpove devices or 819x chip related stuff)
UPDATE9 dec 2014
as main manager that was involved in this "nprove brand" router development
based on 8196c/d chip changed job he dont invloved anymore in this project
as it was. Also domain nprove.in not belong to any who where involved
in this router development. Probably I can say that this try to port
realtek fake open source openwrt firmware to mainline openwrt is ended.
Also chanell on freenode.net/#nprove with main developer also can be
considered died. Also all this post now is for historical puropouses. If
someone interested i could try to get all this 8196c git repo sources and
put in archive. Maybe someone will continue development of 8196c chip
support for mainline openwrt not for fake-relatek-openwrt.
