Midge is a linux mini-distribution for ADM5120 based routers, such as Edimax BR-6104K.
Also midge uses ipkg package manager, which can be used for installing new software.
Midge divided to 3 versions: jffs2, tmpfs and usb - difference on which root filesystem is used.
- jffs2 version uses jffs2 root filesystem (of course). It has small (~512k) initial rom filesystem, and big (~800k) filesystem for user data. It can be used on system which have some services (micro servers) and/or if you want install custom software. Advantage of jffs2 filesystem is a journal filesystem - you can do not worry about rootfs safety.
- tmpfs version uses tmpfs root filesystem. It has big (1280k) initial rom filesystem, and small (256k) data partition. It can be used on typical routers.
- usb1) version uses root filesystem on usb storage (USB-Flash, USB-HDD).
