What software ports are really missing? (HNB port attached...)

Hello Zak,

Isn't  the full Perl (with some optional modules) available from OpenWRT
You can install it insear of mini-perl (just use "opkg update && opkg
install perl" if your 
NanoNote is connected to the Internet).

And yes, if you install Debian you can install gcc and other development
tools (but compiling
of larger programs will be very slow).

It's better to install the OpenWRT development environment on a desktop
machine with Linux 
(it may work on Mac OS machine, too - but I'm not sure). 


Best regards,
