Not sure, but I think that the openwrt OS downloads temporary files into
the ramdisk at /tmp or /var.  Both the package list (opkg update) and
the gcc-mips package thus have to fit into the remaining free RAM to
make the installation work.

Does installation work if you kill gmenu2x first (or launch 'ash' from
gmenu2x which has a similar effect)?

Does it work if you add a swap partition or swap file via micro-SD?
