OpenWrt is a niche Linux distribution mainly installed on embedded devices, e.g. residential gateways. It is built on top of the Linux kernel and consists of a collection of diverse software packages. For easy installation and deinstallation of packages it relies on the opkg Package management system. OpenWrt primarily uses the command-line interface of sh or (optional) bash, but also features optional web-based GUI interfaces, such as LuCI or X-Wrt or Gargoyle Router Firmware. More Info »
