Hi,

I checked an executable on the system. MCVIEW states "mipsel" so i downloaded all stage3 from the ftp...


stage3-mipsel4_multilib-20121028.tar.bz2 cannot be unpacked. I downloaded it twice to double check
Code:

bzip2: Data integrity error when decompressing.
   Input file = (stdin), output file = (stdout)

It is possible that the compressed file(s) have become corrupted.
You can use the -tvv option to test integrity of such files.


with the others I get following errors when I try to chroot into the stage

Code:
stage3-mipsel1-20121028.tar.bz2  Illegal instruction
stage3-mipsel3_multilib-20121028.tar.bz2  chroot: can't execute '/bin/bash': Exec format error


The box is a fritzbox 3170 and its running freetz at the moment, but I want to get gentoo working on the box, as all my linux boxes have gentoo

The MIPS 3 and 4 stages are really for SGI desktop machines.

Your router almost certainly has a MIPS32 CPU in it. Looks like we don't have mips32el stages yet. stage3-mipsel1-20121028.tar.bz2 should work for you.

<shameless plug>
I maintain a gentoo rootfs for systems like the AR7-Based FritzBoxes.
Grab it here: http://mlau.at/files/mips32-linux/gentoo-mips32elsf-rootfs-130609.tar.xz
