comment Shell Script mktemp, what's the best method to create temporary named pipe?
@dogbane If it is in any way critical, I'd make a tiny C application, calling the mkstemp() function (linux.die.net/man/3/mkstemp). The -t switch isn't discouraged, it is -p, my bad.

comment Shell Script mktemp, what's the best method to create temporary named pipe?
@dogbane So is the use of -t, but as long as it works reliably, I'd go with it.

comment D-Link DI-624 H/W ver. D: Flashing OpenWrt
@rozcoetrzewiacz: the ESMT chip in that picture, which is a PSC chip on mine, is the 64Mbit RAM (8MB RAM). I have located the Flash ROM on my device, it's a Spansion FL016A1f 16MBit (2MB) flash ROM.

comment D-Link DI-624 H/W ver. D: Flashing OpenWrt
I know, I've read it another time, more carefully. The Problem is, I don't know how big the flash ROM is. As I said before, I couldn't identify the ROM chip, and I couldn't find any online resource, that states the ROM size. There is some guy that actually has Linux running on his DI-624: forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?pid=59259#p59259

Waaait a second! The list lists devices that are not compatible with DD-WRT, right? it Lists DI-624 vC3. I have version D1 (that's what's written on the PCB) / D2 (that's what's written on the label on the back of the device)! I may be quite lucky here.

OK, this sucks. Any suggestions how I could identify the flash ROM chip, or another minimalistic firmware, that would fit in 1MB?

comment While there is C++ why most of Linux programs are written in C?
@Mat Well, it's not entirely correct, as C++ is a superset of C. You can program in C and compile it with a C++ compiler. It'll compile and work as expected.

comment What is the “Bootable flag” option when installing a distro?
@IgnacioVazquez-Abrams Correct, all it needs is a boot sector loader of whatever partition. I didn't want to immerse into GRUB functionality too much, as this question was about boot flags and MBR, and not about GRUB per se.
