I am trying to install rTorrent and inotify-tools on my rt-n16, but both have to be compiled. I have already installed the "optware-devel" package. When I try to install gcc, ipkg says that the package is not found. I have tried searching for more than a week now, but I could not get any results. How do I install gcc?
You may be able to use the gcc here: http://tomatousb.org/forum/t-336545/extra-newer-optware-ipk-s-not-in-the-ddwrt-ipkg-feed
It is gcc 4.1.1, and it has not been tested extensively, so it may or may not work for you.
Regarding inotify-tools : does that require any kernel modules?

Thanks for the link, davygravy. I tried installing the gcc, but it appears that "binutils" and "libc-dev". Sadly, I could not find it anywhere. Perhaps, I would be able to compile it myself (or perhaps not), but being a total noob, it'll take me a long time to learn how to go about the process.
As for inotify-tools, I just assumed that since the kernel supports inotify, the inotify-tools would just work. Looks like it is not so simple. :( I'll have to check this out further.
Thanks for getting me started on this.
Why wouldn't you just cross compile on a regular linux box? Not that I've done this myself, but surely all you need is to install on linux the same set of tools as you would use to compile Tomato itself….
Lol..! As I said, I am a total noob. I didn't even know that it would be possible to compile on Linux. Thanks, Peter, that was a very good lead. Now i'm all excited about it. I'll check it out further.
As for the rtorrent installation, I just installed the stable 0.8.6-1 ipkg in the repository, as only that seems to work with ruTorrent 3.3. Now i'm stuck on an issue with a ruTorrent plugin, "edit" which was the whole reason i'm going through this exercise. All this effort, so that I can save a couple of minutes when adding trackers to the torrents. I must be crazy. :D
